Good point. Thanks for the navigation tips. I didn't know that.

Not sure how famiular you are with crew from Fordbarn when Shelly ran it.

Some real great guys offer pearls of wisdom. Like many places, there were also some real grumpy old farts who liked nothing but to complain and suffered from a bad case of aligator arms.

When it came time to buck up and help out Shelly defry the cost, with some of the guys you'd hear crickets cripping in the background from their key boards.

I truly wish Ryan luck with the transfer from old to new. There were certainly some quirks with the old system.

Some folks just don't like change and need a big class of prune juice before they can even think about it.

Does this mean that the focus has shifted from just Fords?

I don't think so,let's keep it about Ford's,it's just going to take more time for some of the sages of the Old Barn to get past their learning curve and get a feel for the more advanced site.

Have you ever heard the expression,,HERDING CAT'S? HRP

I guess that I am still confused as to how to put all replies into a single string, as every body else must be. I have been through most of the new FORDBARN and I have not seen it done yet.
I counted EIGHT times, that my original statement has been repeated here. What's with that ? I guess that we all have a lot to learn.
In the replies to my opinion, I have been told that I was WRONG, I'm not thinking, because it's too much work and I'm not trying to get along.
The truth is that I am not that computer savy. I do agree that it would have nice if the most active threads would have jumped to the top of the page. That really is nice.
Maybe, a lot more tutoring is in order.
Thanks,
MIKE

Mike,

Your original statement was "repeated" because folks replying were quoting you using the "quote" button. The idea behind this is as a thread gets longer, it is important to reference what you're replying to. I can reply to your specific thread and even specific words.

Ryan has put together an easy to read & understand tutorial here:

http://69.61.21.195/are-ya-lost

Additionally, there is the FAQ at the top in the black bar toward the right - that has more detailed, but technical explanations for just about every feature of the new forum software. Check under the "Reading and Posting Messages" link:

https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/faq.ph...eading_posting

The thing I like most about this software is the ability to edit or delete your post - along with easy picture posting.

296 V8 . . . . . . . . . . .
Never thought about that one. It's true, anybody could pick up your e-mail address on the old FORDBARN. It must have been designed, before that was a problem.

It was easier to just skip over their B.S.postings by not clicking on their name.

This layout, like the HAMB, forces you to read all of the comments made by the same d*ck h*ads you were trying to avoid in the first place.

I know that may sound a tad anti-social, but its true
Tim,

Have you checked into the "IGNORE LIST"? There is a way you can enter the names of those individuals into the ignore list and their posting will disappear from your sight. There will be a little message that says "SO an SO is on your ignore list" and that is all you will see. Everything else will be there intact. This way you can continue reading without elevating your blood pressure.
