Default Good Morning Carnival Fans. Welcome to the new format boards

Good Morning cruisemates! Don't panic if this is your first glimpse of the new format message boards.

While they look different, they are really no more difficult to use.

First off you do now have to be registed to the site to post. So if you haven't yet registered, please do.

If you're registered, but don't remember you password, just use the password reminder. Then when you're all set log in.

Don't let the tool bar above your reply box intimidate you. You don't have to use any of it if you don't want to, and can post as you did before.

But as you get used to the boards, check out those tools to see what they can do for you.
for example B = bold. Type the word or sentence you'd like to see in bold, then drag the cursor to highlight it, then click B. It'll be BOLD

Same procedure for I (Italics), U (underline)

If you want to post a link or picture in your post, same procedure, just type in the full url of the link , or location of the picture. If it's a link, click on url above, for a picture click on img.

Also, after registering you'll see you now have access to private messaging with other users, and if you look at Profile, you can put in permanent signatures on your posts, as well as make choices about the looks and functions of the site which suit you.

Best thing to do is just play with the boards, and experiement, until you are feeling comfortable with them.[/b]

Someone should have told us about the new format not hit us with big surprise The easiest way to register is to start all over again if you are having trouble logging in whichI did.

I had trouble logging in as well. I had start all over. This is a bit awkward as far as posting and then going back to the board. Maybe this can be streamlined in the future.

Not liking this format as much. I know it has way more functionality, but I liked the old color scheme and simplicity of the old boards.

Sigh, I guess I will just have to get used to it.

Rob.. color schemes etc. are just personal taste. I had nothing to do with the choices, but I really like them. Find them very relaxing for some reason.

And I LOVE your avitar. TOO CUTE!!

I always enjoy a change (new shoes, new dress, new $100 bills) and this is different....but yikes - I had to look twice to make sure I was on the Cruismates Board and not some other one. I hate that it "feels" a little less unique...but, having just finished a web project - I know it's all about being functional. Congratulations on getting them up and running after the problems this weekend.
