Not that it matters, since this board has such little activity, but I figured I should announce this. Once again we're being migrated to another server/operating company. This time it will be Tapatalk, which I gather is geared more toward a mobile experience. It's going to happen in about a week, and whenever it is, we'll likely be offline a few hours in the middle of the night. While the URL will stay the same (for a while at least), when the change does occur, the look of the place will be generic. I'll have to figure out how to navigate the control room again so I can reinsert the graphics we're using now. We'll see how it goes.

Well, the change has been made, or at least I'm seeing the new format now. I'm in the middle of writing another review, so I'm not sure when I can take a look at the control panel and get the old look back. Stay tuned.

PS: Well, I got the main banner back, but I don't think I'll be able to reinstate the Amazon links announcement banner, at least not without upgrading to a premium package, and I'm not going to do that. This board is dead anyway, but I guess I'll continue to post links to reviews, but for anyone interested, and if you haven't already, please follow us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/templetongate/ , and/or Twitter - https://twitter.com/templetongate

PPS: Still haven't had much time to look through the control panel, but I don't see anything like what we had before with the banner announcement with amazon links. Since this is geared for mobile, that's probably not going to work visually, it's too cluttered for that with all the images. One other thing, the main Templetongate banner up top used to link to the main site, but I can't find out how to reinstate that. Of course, that link is very simple, templetongate.net, plus all my review updates will link there. I'm not going to worry about this anymore, but may send an email eventually with a few questions.

EDIT: Banner on main forum page now links to the main site, but it opens a new window.

EDIT #2: Just found out that the text of The Templeton Gate at the top of forums pages links to the site too, but doesn't open a new window. The graphic banner on the main page does open new window. Not sure why.

So, obviously it's been FAR too long since I've been here....I couldn't log in because while my email address was already in use, my username wasn't?  So, that makes not sense.  It's all very strange.  I swear, I only got the email from Tapatalk a couple of weeks ago (play Jeopardy theme while I go check that.... I got the email September 22).  Anyway, super strange.
