I honestly feel like I'm with "my people" Do you realize how wonderful it is to see others thinking the way you do?? Its a relief. And there are problems that only a fellow ADDer can help you with. You guys did great.
But hey! No one told me there was an AD&D game, I so love gaming!

Thank you for all your very nice comments. I sincerely hope that if you have constructive criticism, that you let us know. Also, lets please keep on topic here. (I think Keppig mistook D&D for AD&D).

Oh I love D&D / and AD&D

Dungeons and Dragons, then there is Advanced Dungeons and Dragons role playing game pretty cool.

Sorry -

Great [ This hopefully concludes the AD&D/D&D discussion, if you wish to start another thread in Chit Chat, you are welcome to do so! ]

I love the forums and everyone in it. But, I am getting irritated with never being able to log on; but, I'm sure your all working on it as it probably happens to you as well...so misery in numbers...well, at least I'm not alone.

Lately, I have noticed a trend in the forums. When I first started there were a lot of disagreaments and petty bickering. Now, though I have noticed nothing but support, encouragement, hope and love shown. That makes me proud for all of you who stuck it out thru a few bad eggs and have refused to rise to their bating. Your all doing a great job and if I had the time I would commend each and everyone of our members personally.

Big hugs,
Cherity

The only thing I'd suggest for future consideration is to find an nntp compatible program. I realize that's not a simple change, just a pipe dream for some day. Honestly though, this place is great!

Um, and it'd be nice if poll voting (without a new message) didn't put posts into the "new posts" search results. But hey I relaize these are total geek comments so no sweat, just for the 5-year plan or whatever.

The upgrade was awesome... good work! I know how painful that kind of thing can be.

Just wish there was a spell check sometimes. Its weird it doesn't bother me at all when others make typos but I hate it whn I do LOL! Plus having spell check helps me to make mistakes less offten. Its like learning to spell at the sametime LOL!

Other than that I love this place! And if that never happened I'd still love it just the same. Just wish I had more time to visit than I have.

Actually regarding the spellchecking, I'm on several other forums and this one is unique (among those, I mean) in not allowing members to go back and edit and/or delete their older posts. Is this a policy decision from the powers that be, or is this open for discussion?

It just seems to me like not allowing ADHD people to go back and fix mistakes they have made, or modify impulses they might later regret, is a potential recipe for unhappiness...

Sorry Paul but there is really no option for NNTP (Newsgroups, correct?). The overall trend for some time has been moving to stand alone communities from newsgroups for a number of reasons such as the ability to moderate posts & keep out the spammers, dedicated features and multiple forums, etc.. etc.. All of that is either very hard or impossible to do with a newsgroup. With regards to e-mailing groups like yahoo and msn... They are still used a lot more for spamming, they are slow and blown up with advertisements, etc.

I think having an email system built in for some would be nice but none of the online discussion forum sites are doing it that I am aware of, and I have yet to see a hack for it...
