New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    Six of one, half dozen of the other.

    I didn't post them in any paticular order, just as they came to mind.

    When I was stationed in Washington DC at Headquarters Marine Corps (was that a nightmare-Sodom on Potomac), the Band of the Royal Marines gave us a morning 'wake up' outside in the parking lot in front of the building. It was great. I couldn't help but remark on the similarity of the dress uniforms with ours.

    By the way, the percussion section of the Royal Marine Band is better than that of the Marine Corps Band at Eighth and Eye. Don't tell anyone I said that, though, I'll be shot for disloyalty.

    Sincerely,
    M
    Of course they are better,everyone knows that(only some won't admit it!) (just having a dig) lcm1

    • Thanks, VR, very much.

      As for who copied whom, I have no idea-maybe great organizations just think alike.

      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          Yes.... not much compares to the RM in the realm of sea landing troops.
          My worst jump story:
          My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
          As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
          No lie.

            I am not being sarcastic when I say that for an American to say that is quite a tribute for I do realise how proud you are of your own Marine Corps, lcm1

              Where you at Henderson Hall or the Barracks?

              I was a course writer at the yard from Jan-01 to Nov-02.

                  Many differences if you are familiar with both organizations. One is considered a Special Operational Force the other is not.

                  • The US Marine Corps has special operations forces imbedded in its structure.

                    • Nichols,

                      I was at Headquarters when it was in Arlington, not in Quantico.

                        Yes... and no. We are speaking of units not services so USMC SOF units will need to be added separately.

                          • Entire military organizations are listed in the answers to the question put in the first posting-so the answer is not 'yes and no' it is what I posted-at least my answer is.

                                In that case the RM should certainly be in the top three!! Because they do by nature what other Corps are specially trained to do. lcm1
