Where did the stop motion on video section go? I used to check that weekly. If something isn't broken why fix it?

I'll go ahead and add the Video category back in.

The old message board was overdue for retirement. There was no one left to service it since the company DCScripts went out of business years ago. It was just a matter of time and my availability. All the old messages are currently being put together into an archive and will be linked to the new site once it's ready.

Yep - basically, it WAS broken! 

I'm glad you're keeping the Video section Anthony - I like to click on that and Photos now and then just to browse through what's been added recetnly. 

That would be great! The old message board had a massive load of information, so there are a lot of stop motion topics already discussed. No need for re-writing :)

I'm fine with the new message board, just glad this great resource is continuing.

Any progress on wrapping up the old boards and making them available?

Yeah, I'm totally used to this new interface now and I love it - it's hard to even remember why I was hesitant at first. Weird how we resist change so ferociously, and then suddenly it's all just ok and we wonder what the big deal was. 

My thought are the same as yours Strider.This seems much easier to pop in and see whats new :)

Loving the new site, as well.  Addition of the archived material will be icing on the cake!

Definitely liking this site.  I was active on the old site long enough to get used to the interface; not so long that I got entrenched in it, though.  This one definitely took less time to get used to.  I definitely agree with Maq, too -- it's much easier to get a quick sense of where the conversation is. Because of the "Latest Activity" feed, I've seen some interesting posts in threads I wouldn't necessarily have followed otherwise.  It's nice to be able to just leave the page up in a tab at work, and occasionally check in to see what's going on.

Yeah, the  latest activity feed is great, and I love the ability to click to see videos, pics and blogs. One thing I really like here over the old site - from the main page you can click right on the name of the last responder to a discussion and it takes you directly to that post, rather than having to go to page 1 first and then to the last page. 

It's a great interface. I used to worry that without the ability to Mark content that I'd end up missing something, but I don't think it's happened yet. Of course if activity really picks up it could happen, but I'm no longer worried about it.
