    The new forum spot

    Welcome to the forums formerly of BackyardMetalcasting.com here now on AlloyAvenue.com. I know it doesn't look very nice now (not that the previous place looked much better) but as the weeks go by improvements will be made and things will start looking and funtioning better (for example; the smilies aren't showing up for some reason).

    And of course other features will be turned on (if they aren't already) like avatars, etc. Just give me some time to figure this stuff out. Feedback is welcome.

    Thanks and happy posting, blogging, etc.

    P.S. Don't be shy about posting a blog or article on the forum main page (the "home" tab on the top left of this page). That home page needs some relevent stuff anyways. Currently there are some articles about how to use some of the site's features.

    This is nice! Ha, we're all going to AA, because of our addiction... to metal. Too bad the post counts got reset.
    EDIT: woops the post counts didn't I guess Lio just has a new account

    Lio and apuranga,

    Check your permissions. Everyone is showing up as "Site Admin" under their usernames.

    Haha! The new site lives! Great! We need a good fiery banner for the top and all will be in order!



    I like the whole "Bill Toomey, Senior Member, Site admin" thing. It has a nice ring to it, not that it will be permanent....

    Thanks BashingTin,

    I just fixed that. It wasn't the permissions it was just a mixup in the usergroup titles.

    Welcome back.
    Thanks Leo, it must be quite a job to move a complete forum, your efforts are appreciated.
