    After taking a quick tour it seems fairly straight forward. Looking forward to having a site to go to with more of a local group of people so we can really kickstart thi community.

    Looks good so far. But I had a hell of a time getting registered. Seems the system didn't want to accept the code I was putting in even though it was the correct code. Took about 10 tries on two different days. But I'm finally in.

    When you say code are you talking about the security code you have to enter?

    yep, that's the one. First time was my fault as I didn't pay attention to upper/lower case letters. That's what happens when you get old. All of the rest of the times I did though but I have no clue why it wouldn't take.

    Sorry, that was me. I'm actually a web designer/programmer/administrator. I don't like the color scheme or overall design. It is quite functional, but it could be simplified and made easier on the eyes for sure. There is definitely better messageboard software out there too. Sorry for being so critical; I know I'm very new and everything, but I have lots of experience with this kind of thing.

    If I were you, I'd use a Wordpress homepage that has phpBB integration. You could easily have a beautiful, very powerful, and easy-to-manage setup. Have you used Wordpress or phpBB before? They both have huge support communities, are easy to customize, and are easy to integrate.

    I can help if you'd like. Who is your hosting company? Do they support using phpBB and Wordpress (possibly through Fantastico or another automated installation script)?

    It's good to see that there's some fresh meat in the club and that you're updating the site and everything. I haven't been to a meeting in over 6 months, and it seems like there's an entirely new crew. Just my 2 cents on the board: I would cut the number of forums down significantly. Having numerous specialized forums works on a giant board with thousands of members, but on a board this size it makes it look like a ghost town when you have 20 different forums with 0 or 1 post, and it's a lot of clicking around. With a group this size who all know each other fairly well and are interested in what each other have to say you'd be fine with just a handful of forums. Nice work though. Where do you guys meet these days? Who are the officers?
