Thanks for adding those. I have been posting Army4one.com in my signature on all the sites I frequent. I have gotten a few replies and people that were supportive and interested. Just haven't seen them contribute anything yet.

Somewhat related topic - do we have the ability to change our user name? Since I haven't been frequenting the Joe sites as much, I have been registering as ColtsFan76 on most new sites. So the people that have shown an interest in this site know me by that screenname instead.

If we don't have the ability to change names (and I assume we don't since I have only seen one message board program that allowed that so far) do we have the ability to add in a subtitle to our name? Some sites have certain ranks (like newbie, jr. member, sr. member) and some let you create your own. Over at Mission FACES we created a military rank system that allowed you to get promoted based on the number of posts you made.

One other thing - It might be nice to reorganize the forums a bit. Usually, Off-topic is at the bottom. All the toys could go together. or maybe just put Joes at the top, Off-topic at the bottom, and alphabetize the rest. It's just now that we have so many to choose from, it's getting harder to see what we have.

Many kudos to you Chad for all of the updates and reformations on the forum. It looks great! And it really tells people new and old to the site what goes on in each forum and how/where to direct their interests.

i believe that i can change your name, so if you want me to change it to ColtsFan76, just give me the go ahead.

p.s. i just checked this out, id have to have your password. either you can pm it to me, or i can change it and pm you with the temp password.

That would work best! Not that I don't trust you but I am simple when it comes to passwords and that one controls access to most of my online banking and everything else ;)

Thanks!!!
