• We just finished a major forum upgrade.

  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Conversations are the equivalent of Private Messages in the old vBulletin forum. Here is one way to start a new conversation if you are using a desktop computer: If you are using a tablet or phone then you tap instead of hovering unless you have a mouse connected.

Hover the mouse over your name ...

Thanks for the information on how to start a conversation Bill. By the way, looked through your photo gallery and Daisy looks just like our Scooter we had for 17 years. She passed couple years ago.
