You will find the forums a little bit rearranged in the next day or two. Nothing is gone, but some things have been combined and/or moved.

All the categories started getting a little unwieldy, and so we decided to try to make it a little more compact and user-friendly.

Main differences for now are:

  • Welcomes are moved to the Pub.
  • There is a special category for Challenges.
  • Entertainment - music, TV, movies, etc. has been combined.
  • The Triangle has its own main category, since it is a private forum.
  • There is a section for gaming announcements, business type stuff, and the Game Room for regular game chat.
  • Mac games and technical are in one category, since we don't have a lot of Mac users yet.
Let us know what you think!!

Although I generally stick to the "Today" posts, since it usually covers what I miss in my time offline, I like the changes you've mentioned.  It did seem, to me at least, that the main Pub forum page was becoming a little daunting in its enormity (is that a word?), so I think this will make things more accessible and the forum easier to navigate.

I use the forum this way, too.  So the changes you've mentioned won't have much effect on how I "surf".  However, I really like the idea of the Triangle having it's own separate place.  Things really are getting pretty "big", aren't they?  But that's a sign that we're a really healthy group - at least forum wise.  HA!

Gove locked the thread, but for some reason the lock is not showing. There is a new October challenge thread in the Challenge Forum, and you can respond or ask questions there.

That was the OLD thread, AP! Try this one... smiley19

I also started a new thread for the informal challenge, so if you have some ideas, that would be the place to post!

eddy, would you rather have that coupon from GameHouse for the free game of the day (with ads), or Direct2Drive for any game you want (with ads)?

 Khat for the changes you've worked hard on to make in the forum.  I'm finding it more user friendly.


 @ Eddy.  I love your reply!!!

I really enjoy this site & can only imagine all the hard work that's gone into setting it up & that regularly goes into maintaining it --big thanks to all involved-- YET...

aimoo.com really needs to get it together IMHO!

For me, it takes so long for threads to load here, waiting & waiting to get back to the main page after I've posted a comment, waiting & waiting for 'Today' posts to load... doesn't seem to matter what time of the day/night I visit?

And, after I leave the site, I always have console errors to clear, plus while on-site my viewing window persistently gets auto-resized to large/full, which is a PITA.

Not meaning to be negative, just wanting to mention these glitches.

I believe that may be an issue with aimoo.com and not the forum. Although, aimoo may say it's Firefox's fault. If you're not using Firefox, then I guess it's the hamsters. LOL

I do know I can't access PMs or my CP unless I use a different browser, but that's a recent phenomenon that aimoo blamed on Firefox, even though Firefox hadn't changed anything when that problem started. The hamsters, again, because aimoo categorically stated it wasn't them.

Go figure.

That's interesting, Cat
I use Firefox and have had no problems with PMs.
Sometimes I have trouble getting the site to come up, but I chalk it up to it's just busy.  Other times, I think, have been when updates are in progress such as changing wallpaper etc.

Well, praise the Lord and pass the biscuits! It's working...although, I just setup my brand spanking new iMac and seems there aren't any issues, now. LOL

So, it wasn't Firefox, regardless what aimoo said in their Help Forum...it was...hamsters. Yup, that's it; hamsters. ROTFL The slowness and error messages are definitely aimoo's fault. I guess it's their servers...or, maybe, hamsters.
