    As you probably know the Message board has had problems for about 2 months. I have not been able to set up accounts for new members or retrieve login information. The people who sold the message board and have helped in the past quoted a price to fix it, I agreed but now I can’t find them.
    Message boards are basically available in 2 types, expensive business types and free no support types. I have looked at several free ones and picked this one for a first try.
    You can find it at ->link<-
    In the upper right corner there is a sign in button. Click it and it will take you to log in. At the bottom of the login there is a place to click to Apply for membership. Everyone needs to join again, sorry. I will try to approve membership at least once a day.
    Click on the Discussions tab for the topics.
    Click on Start a New discussion on the left and enter your message.
    I would like to try this for a week or two and if it works it will become the main message board. The present one will be kept but it will be frozen so it available for reference.
    I would like feed back as you try this.

    Several people have already joined the new board.
    The Username you use is how your postings will show up. I started with david and I probably should have used David Kerzel. If you prefer to use a screen name pleas put your real name in the posting.
    Also in this system Your name can be clicked on for a direct return e-mail without your e-mail being viable to all.
    I need to update several pages and the agreement page to include the guide lines.
    What do you think about the automatic Welcome message. Does it need more information?
    Would anyone be interested in a feature that send new postings to you as e-mail? It is a option, each person can select if they want it and what topics to include.

    Hi David
    I got the email and it looked OK to Me. As for the postings sent to members email, I personally do not use that feature on message boards because sometimes it can fill Your in box with messages. I know from running My "Plans & blueprints" Yahoo groups though that a lot of people do like that feature, so I would sujest adding it as an option that members can choose.
    This message board is looking really good sofar! I havent had anny truble with it. I have joined some message boards that make You "jump through hoops" to get to the messages that You want to read! This one is verry simple and seems like it is going to be easy to navigate!
    Thanks for all the work YOU put into this group! I dont post a lot but I check the messages every day!

    +1 on George's comments re: e-mail messages. I too like the simplicity of the board.
    Hello to all FAME members.......After a "bit" of fumbling around I finally made it to the New FAME board.......I believe that we should thank David for his effort to keep the FAME group together and healthy....We should work to make sure that "all" of the old board members transfer to our new FAME home...As far as work progress, I am still working on the new brass "T2" engine making slow but sure progress .....I should be in start up mode in a weeks time.....Again I would like to thank David for his effort In getting FAME a new board......Dale Detrich
    Now i can join in the chatter. I never could post in the old forum. Thanks David!

    Hi Uncle Dale!!

    Hi Nephew Steve........I would guess that by now have three or four new projects finished......What are you taking NAMES show this year ??? Are you ready to go to a second Zanesville show ??..How is the little V4 doing ??
    Uncle Dale Now that we have a new site, lets keep it busy..........
    I have built a few (4) simple air engines in the last month or so. I will only be able to spend Satuday at the names show but i will have a few things in my pocket. I will be at the next Zanesville show for sure. The V4 is moving along slow. I keep getting sidetracked. The valve cages are pressed in and the valves are in. I made 10 rocker arms and drilled the holes in them backwards so i will start a fresh batch this week.
    Dave, I get a email saying that I was ready to go. I signed in and it let me.
    Thanks for all you do for this page.I look foward to checking it every day also. I have been working on a V-Twin Hoglet that was in M.E.B. mag a will back got it running to day on Glow fule will change it to Ing. soon it was great to hear it run for the first time I would like to thank all that have helped me on this engine that is what makes this site so great. Thanks again David

    I have made the new message board the active one and moved the old one to a item in the left menu.
    The old one still has a lot a good information in it. There is a search feature at the bottom of the old message board to help find things.
    If you have a message in progress please bring it to the new board.

    There a few differences in the new board:

    The opening page, when you log in, has all the new messages displayed, newest on top, messages added since last visit are indicated by a red NEW. The time since posting and the number of messages is also displayed.

    When you want to start a new discussion begin at the CATAGORIES tab. These are the topics like in the old message board. Click Start New Discussion to create a new discussion thread. Using them will help organize discussions.

    Once more interesting data get posted the Search function will help find things.
