Looks pretty good Bill. I like the font colours and arrangement. i think pages will take longer to load for me, but we'll see how it goes.

Is the old forum going to continue in parallel to this one for a while?

cheers

Sunny,

Thanks for your reply. The old forum still exists but we're not going to be running them together. If we did, we'd end up losing a lot of valuable posts over on the old forum.

I did notice some latency in the new forum and have been in contact with the host to resolve it. I trust we'll be able to get it resolved shortly.

Best wishes,

Bill

We've worked behind the scenes for almost a year now to assure that all photos, posts, member info and URLs from our original forum carry over. Bill has really worked hard dealing with the many tedious details needed to make this happen.

We now really encourage you to report any issues or suggested enhancements by posting them on this forum or emailing them to Bill at help@hairtransplantnetwork.com

We will do every thing we can to make this the most robust hair restoration social community on the planet. So please let us know how we can make it better for you.

Onwards and Upwards into greater sharing and interaction - Pat

I wasn't a fan of the old board software so I think this is a vast improvement. I'm glad that everything has ported over and I haven't had to re-register or anything. It's lagging a bit for me right now but I'm sure you'll get that sorted. Nice job!

I think the biggest plus is being able to easily see where there are new posts.

Bill and Pat,

Congratulations! The new community looks great. I'm sure this entire moving process was daunting, but I think it paid off. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help, and I'll make sure to keep the issues and enhancement email request in mind.

Guys,

Thanks for your feedback. This community's been a year in the making, so it's nice that we're finally live. We have found a few bugs, including an issue causing intermittent freezing of the site. I apologize for this, but we've narrowed down the cause of the problem and have our programmers working on it.

Tsakalos,

Hit me up privately and let's talk about this search feature. I did get your previous message in IM and I'll look at your site as soon as I can. Thanks for your suggestions.

Bill

Guys,

We've been working with the programmers and our host to solve the intermittent freezing of the website. In addition to some database optimization we're working on, we've just "supersized" the server in hopes that it will minimize or prevent this problem from re-occurring. I encourage anyone experiencing a delay now that we've upgraded the server to send me an email at help@hairtransplantnetwork.com or reply to this post.

We've also been made aware of problems some members are having with logging in. We've been working with our programmers to get this issue resolved ASAP. In fact, our accounting and photo specialist who was having problems sent me an email saying he could login now. If anyone is having login issues, send me an email and we'll take care of you.

Best wishes,

Bill
