Wow! So glad to see you all here! :)  Maybe we won\'t need that stinky old R7 board anyway :P  ;)

As for new forums or combining forums, we can do pretty much what we\'d like, although Kronalias has the final word, and I\'m sure he\'d appreciate not having to create a whole slew of them.

I\'ll start a thread in the Subjects forum where everyone can voice their thoughts and opinions regarding the site. We should, as a group be able to decide what, if any changes we\'d like to propose to K (Kronalias) with basic rules we\'d like and such. Once we\'ve agreed, one of us can post in the Announcement forum under Posting Policies. That sound good?

Don\'t forget, in the meantime, you can start your own threads with your own rules at anytime, so don\'t wait if you\'d like to begin one now. It can always be moved to the new forum if it\'s created. (So, Ironeyes, don\'t be downhearted! Just start a \"Rainbows and Happiness\" thread and we\'ll do our best to respect it.)

And, gaaaawd, Ivor! Did you have to put Miss Bum on the welcome thread? 8-)  Jeez, man! You\'ll run people off before they even get started!  

I think you need your own Bums and Boobs thread in The Pub for such things that way I don\'t have to look at \'em!

(I suppose that\'s the price of freedom @\'.2\'@  )

That was the politer one. I decided that the other one was too OTT.

Hi!

Just another refugee from R7.  Like it it so far, good to see so many \"famous\" names from the R7 boards.

I\'m glad that you didn\'t say \'infamous\'. It\'s not so much seeking refuge; more, having learnt the skills at kindergarten, you can now try them out at big school.

Hi Folks

Felt a bit at sea with the demise of R7 boards - have contributed a few items/comments under 2 earlier identities but like many others read the boards avidly to see what others thought.

V pleased to find this site & hope it lives up to what everyone says!

I too cannot understand the obsession with the Archers - how come it deserves the only R4/R7/R4X board? it\'s strange.

Look fwd to reading views

Glad to see you here, Tub! Although you\'re really puttin\' the pressure on here, buddy :S

Anyhoo, hope you post often and not just lurk (although that\'s okay too ;)  )  I remember some of your posts and they were certainly worth reading, so be sure and contribute, yeah?

Great seeing you guys over here! Tub, so long as we\'re all around and determined to sustain the delightful atmosphere that, on the whole, prevailed over on 7\'s boards, we\'ll be laughing.

Thank you very much for picking up the bit and offering this refuge for us. A mailing list or UseNet group would be even better than this pointee-clickee Web-Forum-stuff for dyslexics, but nowadays I take whatever is left while most good things go down the drain.

Hey, Heaven, glad to see you here, too. I bookmarked your site, but hadn\'t got around to checking it out yet. I think a lot of the R4 folks were heading over there, weren\'t they? Glad we all have somewhere to go!

Good to see you to Axel. I\'ll always be grateful t you for recommending the Total Recorder to me years ago. Best money I ever spent, that (tu) I don\'t even know what a UseNet group is :S  I\'ll have to do some research on that one, I guess.

Anyhoo, glad you\'re all here :)

Well, I made it, have had to create yet another identity for here, have been mrs goat and mrs hudson, lets hope I can keep this name since it well expressed my reason for joining.....nice to see some familiar names. I\'m off for a look around now.
