: : I've checked out the new forum at Indy World, and I prefer the ease of use of this forum. The interface of this new "feature-laden" forum simply makes it more difficult to access the information that you want by hiding it in a serpentine maze of "threads" and "topics." It's a good try and a worthy effort, but Micah's tried and true board is an overall more efficient, easily-accesible, and indyfan-friendly environment. The sense of community created by this board would disappear in "a New York minute" at the UIF. To Bordok and all the rest at Indy-World, great idea, bad execution. For all Tolk fans out there let me give you a little analogy: you want to find a certain Dunedain in Rivendell and... BAM!! There he is. Now, try and find that same Dunedain in... Moria. The last Homely House, or Khazad-Dum. I'm sticking with Elrond/Micah and Rivendell/Indyfan. Fortune and glory to you all. --Elendil
: Once again, well said regarding the forum. I tried it too this morning, and it just takes to long to access the information where I can scan this one quickly, and as was said above, the community feel that has existed here is lost there. Would you believe that just this morning I spoke with a vendor in Virgina who spoke of our forum and mentioned the folks by forum nicknames as identification? I knew of everyone of them, and some of them were from overseas! That's the kind of community that this forum has achieved out "there". Micah, please think long and hard about this. Regards. Michaelson
Our friend Michaelson almost always takes the opportunity in his posts and followups to compliment and agree with other Indyfans. However, very few of us have done likewise with him. Let's have a round of applause for all the intelligent, eloquent, and well-mannered fans out there like Michaelson, Mithrandir, Indiana Jones, and the countless others. Three cheers for Indyfans!!! Hip-hip... HOORAY!! Hip-hip... HOORAY!!! Hip-hip... well, you get the idea. Fortune and glory to you all. --Elendil.
