Hey folks,  just an FYI that I have put TOT on hold for today while I take a bit to review what's going on with it and some concerns that have been voiced regarding content and specific parties.
The aim behind ToT was to give us a forum to have fun and throw out some off-color, LIGHT HEARTED banter that didn't apply to turning.  It was not meant for heavily opinionated tyrades, name calling or public challenges of other members.  And while there has been a pretty open policy on content, a few posts have been over the top, even by my generally accepting standards.

Long story short, give us a day to review a few things & guidelines, talk to a few folks, etc.  Tomorrow will present a change or two hopefully for the better.

Thanks Chris, It is a shame that a few have to
make it so rough for the many.

Hey Hoss, no worries it happens with topics like that sometimes.  I definitely wouldn't say it was your fault or the fault of your topic it was simply a matter of how replies to the post were delivered and handled in regards to people's opinions. 

Just like the saying regarding opinions goes, "...everyone has one" As a group we just need to remember that whether right or wrong, each person's feelings/opinion are valid to them.

Well thanks for putting it back up and I would like to see some of the replies to that thread if they could be PM ed to me please. I thought that for the most part the original was more a joke than anything.

Chris, can you change the new post indicator on the TOT board?  When I bring it up it displays a file folder with a trash can icon instead of the check mark.

Bubba - my apologies, ToT was meant to have a "recycle bin" so we could retrieve messages after they were deleted should someone ask but for some reason in the conversion it didn't get reset.  I am unable to retrieve the thread.

Leo - for the reason stated above, the icon changed when I added the recycle bin back on ToT.  I haven't tried to change it in the backend code yet but will see what I can do.  The trash can indicates that thread has a recycle bin for removed messages now.

OK, It's just real nice to see the discolored icon and know that something is new, but I can live without it.
