Default All things must end

I've been a member here for awhile, and wish to thank all for the great info and help. I also like to think that I was able to help a few "newbies" in return.

When a fun relaxing break in ones day turns into a chore then its time to quit.

The new format is a hassell, with a high learning curve. Not only that it makes the site look busy and contrived, not all of us have the extra time to Learn new tricks.

I wish you all well with the new set up and maybe someday when i have the time and the energy to take on a new challange I'll try to figure this place out

Please don't leave us! I know the boards are different, but really, just after using them for a little while, it becomes second nature. Please reconsider!

PLEASE keep trying. I at first thought the change was going to be a problem. But I learned quickly that with alittle help from "your friends" the new format is wonderful. There are so many people who can help with any problem you may have. Please stick around. Every CM member is an important part of the family.

Ed.. you got far enough along that you were able to post this message. There's really nothing else you need to know, so it'd be a shame to leave now.

From this point you can just treat it like the old boards, because ignoring the "tools", there's really not much different.

To someone who loves Bermuda as much as I do, it would be a shame to leave our little family.
I'm not exactly a computer expert, so if I could figure out some of the stuff, anybody can. There are many people you can e-mail to get expert assistance, but all I can say is to play with what you understand. Don't worry about the fancy whistles and bells until you feel comfortable with the stuff you've mastered.
Stick around and you'll be an "expert" in no time.

Ed

Ed, you can't leave us!!!!!!!!
I know that I am one of those people that hates change, and has a real hard time when things do. I really didn't like it when I turned on my computer, and saw what had happened here. When I first came to CM, it was the info and not the people that brought me here. Now it's the people that keep me coming back. I don't care what they do, as long as my friends stay around. I also know that in time, I learn the new system and it even gets to be enjoyable. Please give it time. I wish that I could help you be more comfortable with the system, but there are lots out there to help you out that are far wiser than me. Just know that I will miss you a lot if you decide to move on.

Ed,
I don't get into all the bells and whistles,either. I did have to re-register with a different set of info though, so I could see how my former user name was written. I couldn't get in at first.
Anyway, just go to the topic as before, post your reply and submit. Same categories are at the top--Cruise Lines, Practical Advice, etc. Just click and it will take you there.
My main thing is posting in the AM, and replying to some of the topics. My inexperience doesn't allow me to go beyond that point, right now. Please try it that far. I was ready to throw up my hands, but I took a deep breath!
We hope to see you on here again soon. Lynne 8)

Default All Things Must Come to an End

Ed, please stick around. Kuki is right. You've done the major thing, since you could post a message. I felt the same way as you, but if I can learn this, ANYBODY can Remember, if and when you use the emoticons to the left, that they won't show until your message is posted.

I can't use all the bells and whistles, either. Note there's no avatar. OMG, I actually used that word

Please, take you time, post messages as you always do, and when you get a chance, play around with the "toys."

Aw Ed, don't go! Nobody was more confused and more frustrated than me, but my good friends here helped me out, and now I am having fun changing my name to purple and changing my type to something bigger that more people can read easier!
I am still having a hard time posting photos, but it will come eventually. The important thing is our "family" here, the love and caring and listening that we all do for each other. Stick around, you're part of the family!

Roller Donna: There should be a slot on the computer to insert pictures or my new word of the month "avatar". I took a very complicated software course about seven years ago and all that penetrated was Powerpoint. Color me hopeless, but I finally figured out that I like people lots more than computers.
