Peter's done a really great job, working day and night fixing, adjusting and improving all you see here.

While some of us have just been beta-testing as users, let's not overlook the many, many dedicated hours put in by our co-host Ben Kempas.

Buy these guys a pint.

Ooh this is so exciting, and a little overwhelming. But WELL DONE PETER!! I'm very impressed. Thank you!

Folks, check your profiles ... If you've used HTML in your previous profile, you'll need to get rid of those HTML tags manually.

If you get any server errors, including those saying "We're sorry but something went wrong, please let us know here. Carefully describe what you did when it happened.

Congratulations and thanks to Peter, Ben and anyone else who helped make this happen.
It looks so...2007!

Wow, Tom, so that's what you look like! What silly said that seeing our images would dampen the experience?

I'm getting errors when using the link to read postings after mine. The general "Read New Postings" link seems to work fine.

I'm sure Peter will look into this once he had some sleep...

Thanks for helping to break it as an Alpha tester...

Congrats guys! I was so happy to get the email that things were up and running! I've been stranded at the airport in Barcelona for the last 12 hours. Perfect timing to play around in the new D-word.

whoops, I am about to double post, cause the other was in playing around as I didn't notice help. How do I change my password back to something I can remember?

Ben Kempas

Yes, I'm getting them all the time, but only with the "after yours" link. Am I the only one?

Peter, "the fixer" Gerard. Only thing I don't like is being called member. Kind of makes me self conscious and wonder what a female member should be called.

Peter Gerard

Yes, I'm the fixer all right, and I can even fix your post so there's an "r" at the end of my first name!

OK I read the instructions, and now I see that the links are to the posts that are in the various topics.

So far so good. THANK YOU PETER! AND BEN. AND DOUG. AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO WAS A PART OF MAKING THE NEW D-WORD HAPPEN. Sorry I'm yelling. I'm just so bloody excited.

It could be that I need to look a little further, but are you going to have instructions, or panels that show the tools you can use - on the posting pages? It would be wonderful.
Thanks,
Milt

Click on the little blue ? icon above the posting box for posting instructions. Or click "Help" in the menu at the top of the page for general instructions. Anything else, just ask here!

Milt, there's also the Help page that you can access from the top menu. You'll find a "Quick Guide" that I wrote very quickly, so it still lacks sophistication and illustration. (Volunteers needed to improve it.)
