The AAW Information sub-forum up until now has only been visible to AAW Members. Following a discussion with the AAW staff, it was decided to make the AAW Information sub-forum visible to everybody including visitors who aren't logged in. The only limitation is that non AAW forum members and visitors won't be able to access the "members only" content.

If you are an AAW member and haven't been able to see the AAW Information forum in the past, it is because you didn't indicate that you were an AAW member when you joined the forum.

There are still two other forums that only AAW members are able to view.

Look at the index page www.aawforum.org. If you're an AAW member, it's third from the bottom and otherwise it's the last entry. It's mostly information posted by the AAW staff. This is information that previously was only available to AAW members and is now available to everyone. This is part of the program to attract new members. There are a few other changes coming to the forum to enhance the user experience and more closely integrate it with the main site.

No, it's not the old vBulletin forum. Everything that was on it was moved to the new forum.

Bill, following your link, I find AAW Information at the bottom, yet my profile shows my membership number. Am I doing something wrong, or am I not registered as a member?

I don't know who to blame ... :D ...but I fixed it so that you are now being recognized by the software as an AAW member. Let me know if that fixed things.

I have the same issue. My AAW members number is displayed but can’t see the AAW info on the forum.

That's strange because when I checked your information in the database it shows that the forum software recognizes you as an AAW member. On the index page you should see the following forums (click on the link in this sentence to make certain that you aren't accessing cached data):
  • Introductions
  • Woodturning Discussion Forum
  • Newbie
  • Woodturning Health & Safety
  • Tutorials and Tips
  • Forum Technical Support
  • Woodturning Marketplace
  • AAW Information
  • AAW Chapter Forum
  • Local AAW Chapter - Demonstrator Scheduling
Tell me which ones you do not see.

I can't see the last two items either, and the link above produces an error message.

Are you not allowing cookies from this site? Also, check your firewall settings. If they are set too high that could be the cause. Also, try logging out by going to the index page and hover the mouse over your name in the upper right of the page. On the drop down menu click on log out. Close and restart your browser and then log into the forum.If none of those things work, I might need to bring in a shaman.

Hi Bill, minor issue: In times gone by, my posts and comments were identified by my Signature "Dennis in Southern Oregon". Sometime since (I did not notice the change) they started appearing under my full name "Dennis J. Gooding". NABD, but inquiring engineering minds always seek a reason for things. :oops:

By any chance are you remembering back before mid June 2016? That is when we made the switchover from vBulletin to XenForo forum software. We applied a vBulletin "skin" to give a somewhat familiar look and feel.
