We have a new user forum to go along with our new website.
It does not cost the club anything to have.
I hope we can get a lot of use out of it sharing information.

You will need to register to post, so please do so right away.

See you around. :D

Good job Dan. We need to get the word out so that we can get more activity this time.

Thanks Phil. Still have some work to do on the website.
We'll send an email to all members when it gets a little more complete.
Good thing is even if the forum is not heavily used, it doesn't cost anything to have.

Great job Dan! Nice of you to volunteer to do it.

I was going to suggest that you try to copy the posts
from here:
http://gtrcc.websitetoolbox.com/
But I see that for some reason all the photos were lost. Such a shame, there were
some pretty good ones there.

Thanks again for coming to the rescue.


on edit - Maybe you can figure out where they went to.

That's strange, the pictures were on the old websitetoolbox just a few days ago

I did look into tools to transfer the database from the old websitetoolbox, but since it is a monthly pay service they make sure their database is proprietary and can't be copied.

But, I do know where most of the old pictures are though. ;)
We'll see about getting some of them back soon.
There are lots of them to sort through and edit.

You guys let me know if there are any special picture requests.

Ken, thank you. But wait just a little bit as I'll be posting some upload rules shortly.
You may have noticed before many of the pictures were huge and took a long time to open.
There will now be limitations on size of the picture and files so the size may have to be reduced first.
I'll try to test the functions today and post the limitations later.

Ken, right now the size limit is 800x800 pixels and 256 kb if you would like to upload some.

BMP files not allowed.

Go for it.

Just tested a couple in the Testing Forum Section.
It creates a thumbnail, that when clicked goes to full size of 640 wide.
My 640 wide pic was only 41 kb.

I really do want to get as many pictures back on here as we can.
That is one thing I look at when I visit other websites.

Good day everyone.

My name is Randy Shaw. I used to be a member of the Burleson Fun Bunch years ago. I am just now getting back into the hobby and am looking for anyone who knows where I might get in contact with any of the officers of that old club.

Ray Thompson used to work at the Burleson hobby store and he might remember me.

If anyone could help me I would appreciate it very much. I am trying to find out what my old AMA number is so I can renew that one without getting a new one.

Thanks in advance


Murlin

Thanks for the reply.

Ya, I tried e-mailing Ray but the e-mail was sent back undelivered. Maybe he changed it and needs to up date or something.

Maybe he could PM me....

Thanks


Randy
