Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

I might join later. At the moment I am caring for an ailing wife at the same time that I have to help with my grandson after school (which just recently started up again) because wifey has a huge cast on her leg and can't drive. Purely temporary, no complications to the surgery, and she'll be fine. But I'll be a wreck for a while after that. And I've had to limit my visits to this forum because of suddenly becoming both chauffeur and gofer. The latter as in "go for this, go for that..."

Well, I was going to hold my tongue, but since Vassago breached the subject, I will comment only because you(Jon) took the time and effort to make it accessible at work.

I tried to access the site from work and although it didn't get blocked, I could not access it. Something about the SSL cert being out-dated. I wish I had took better note of the error but I was not planing on being a PITA about it since most of my time on AWF and other sites are when I am home.

For Doc: I hope the wife convalesces well, you will be fine!

Concur...the site optics are great. Is there move to XenForo in AWF's future?

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

I have considered such a move. My biggest fear is that I may lose traffic to the site. I am not sure what Google will do as they are a law unto themselves. So, I fear the downside more than the upside. It is human nature to think this way, at least that is what the research says in the book Think Fast and Flow.

Other fears include losing long standing members Thank counts, general disharmony and complaining, Brexit and other things.

I must say that the PC version of the forum software is fantastic, but what is really brilliant is the display on your Mobile, it's just like an App!

Thanks for the feedback Uncle. I must say I do prefer the software to the one used on this site.
