    Unanswered: What is with the change?

    I did some looking around and I have not found anything that addresses the new look of the forum. If there is something please direct my to it.

    In case this is the start of something I will weigh in know.

    Why have avatars been disabled and "position" edits removed? More to the point why is Saravanan.R with 117 posts listed as a Senior Member (personally I don't think he or she "gets" it) and notables such as "The Duck" with 897 posts and anacedent with 767 posts are just "Registered Users"? Was somebody offended by the title "Grand Poobah"? Did I just happen to show up at a transition period?

    I just thought of checking out my "position" and I see that I am still a senior member.

    What gives?

    I look forward to your responses. If I happen to disappear from the forum after my comments I have truly enjoyed my time with you all (even you anacedent :-) ).

    Speaking as a Duck I haven't been able to figure out the changes either.
    It seems all historic threads are deleted or something.
    Also, the sql server or db seems to be having a lot of problems too.

    Who is actually in charge of this board anyways?

    you can lead someone to something but they will never learn anything ...

    The people who are in charge have always been rather silent. Perhaps they are just too busy. It would be nice to see some answers.

    Duck, let me be the first to congratulate you on your 900th post! (You are currently at 899, but if you respond to this message it might be with #900!).

    I had a nice title and avatar :-) , which are now gone.

    One thing I know is that the forum used to be started and owned by a British guy named Paul. I see some other company has its logo on the site.

    We will see what the feature will bring us. Till then - have fun..

    HTH,

    Todd, you can give your feedback in the Suggestions & Feedback forum on this site.

    http://www.dbforums.com/f189

    Some folks have already echoed your point about titles and avatars.

    Skywriter,

    Thanks. I have tried "suggestions & feedback" before and got no response. I see now that the "Little Things" topic was about the issue I raised. I can not remember what it was that I searched on and perhaps I only searched this forum.

    Thanks for the input.

    Todd
