    It's actually been that way since the beginning... or, at least, the beginning of the vBulletin era.

    I've done that too. I removed the "home" link from the tabs since you can get there through the flash menu. Let me know if you like the change.

    Phillip decided long ago that he didn't want anyone to update the website with fresh content so even though my creative side is tempted - no more MC freebies from me. Sorry y'all, but Muppet Central has acted like a beastly sociopath in my creative life that takes far more than it gives!

    I had so many great ideas for the forum menu and so many other portions of the site the fell on deaf ears for many, many. many years. Phil can figure it out on his own. I've already provided thousands of dollars worth of free work over the last decade. I was going to give my old work a bit of a spit-shine until I recognized the same unsatisfying pattern of one-sided presumptuousness. It was the last of many straws. :sympathy:

    ToughPigs, the MuppetMindset, MuppetFans and the MuppetCast are phenomenal resources run by webmasters who truly understand the sense of community rather than behave in a fair-weathered and controlling manner. :oops:

    I sincerely encourage anyone who wants to make a forum menu to go for it! It was always a temporary fix. :super:

    I dont like change, usually because it is not for the better and you get settled into something and then have to re learn it.I dont like this new format.It is not as easy to read or use, I lost all my PM messages.Guess I will fade away.Bye.

    Hi i am liking this , but it will take a bit of geting use to , it is very neat , one thing i was hoping though , is that on the privet conforsations ( former known as PMs could we not have a limit on how many we can have I was hoping that would be the case but if it turns out we need to do that i would understand . If we do have limit , could we make the limit more than 20. The limit on the old form was 20 .

    Yes, if a limit is placed on these it will be a significantly bigger number. Thanks for your understanding during the transition.

    For me, it's just hard to get use to, but I guess it is time for a change. I remember when Masterreplicas changed their forum format and it was terrible. This one doesn't have any major problems at least. Just have to do a few things different than what we are use to.

    I know....I lost all my PM's that I kept as well. What a bummer. I have a hard time with the "Quote" thingy as well. It would be nice to just hit someones quote when you are sending another post. Maybe something MC can look into?

    We could at least try and get the read curtian from the Muppet Theater that would be kind of cool.

    Yeah...not too fond of the sites background being all black. Doesn't feel very Muppety.

    As was announced here, your PM's can be retrieved. I'll send you an e-mail. Thanks for your understanding.

    You know what I miss? The ability to see the text of a post or a PM in my email. It's crazy, I know, but I used my email to "screen" stuff. It let me know ahead of time if there was something I could leave alone or had to respond to. :)

    I totally agree with RedPiggy. I miss not being able to see what someone posted when I get an update e-mail.

    Thanks for taking away the home button; I kept clicking it thinking it would take me back to the main forum page and got ticked when it took me to the web site home page.

    I also like the idea of adding something to the side backgrounds, like the red curtain or something; great idea!

    Changed my avatar, I miss my old one but I LOVE my new one; Very fitting of me if I do say so myself! :)

    Yeah. Same here (What RedPiggy said, I mean). :sympathy:

    I also discovered that using my Google toolbar spelling checker causes the text I've just typed to disappear, rendering it impossible for me (an obsessive spelling stickler) to check on my spelling without a seperate document open. *Nonexistant sigh smilie that they really should have added by now*

    Yes I agree, that is nice. This feature is supposed to be coming this summer. We will add it back as soon as possible.

    Please continue to post and let us know any requests that you have.
