    I'll get to you guys here shortly.. Since it's not the easiest to change and recover, it takes me some time to research the info, then go into the database and change it manually.

    So please bare with me for a couple of days. I've been doing them in chunks.

    So I have:

    The new site is much faster, hopefully it will be easier to maintain. Can you add me to the next batch of database updates?

    Thanks.

    Now we're looking like a DaBears forum! While you guys are reinstating join dates and post counts, can you also reinstate our TBS access privileges, now that we have a TBS again?

    FInally I made a new account. Really havn't could get used to the new site but it's time for Bears football so I "forced" myself to sign up. :) I'm having a hard time with new things and such so yea. :)

    Anyway any chances that I can get my "old" profile back?

    Thanks for all the work on the site!

    While this site is different, it should be much easier to navigate. Things will feel natural once you browse for a bit.

    As always, if you can't find something, or have a question, just let us know.

    Thanks Rick! I can't find the Bear DOWN and high-five bottons? Are they gone or am I just completely blind?

    They aren't a function of this site as of right now. This site is 100% different. The functionality is different (for the better). The old site was just getting too complicated, and when I upgraded the site, everything went buggy. I spent a couple of days trying to fix numerous issues and they were extremely hard to find. Even vbulletin wasn't helping me. So basically vbulletin has gotten away from clean, but functional software.

    This new software is clean, fast, and functional. It's from the original coders of vbulletin. So far I'm loving it big time. Plus it's cheaper. :D

    I just sent our an email informing old members of the new site.. Well, yet another bug showed it's face.. The $username code didn't work.. It greeted everyone with their userid... arrghh!!

    I can't stand going back to the old site, just to retrieve data.

    I will, and have to update post counts and dates. Just saying it's that much better now, than before!
