    Not liking all the ads but I get it. It's getting easier for me so I guess I'm just getting used to the new format. Angie seems very helpful.

    Boy do I have a deal for you.

    Go to the little man in the upper right corner and click (that opens User control panel)
    Then down the left column you will see Preferences.
    Click on it.
    At the bottom of that page are the magic boxes. Check your choice and remember to SAVE.

    Now when logged in you don't have to see the ads.

    Hi there! I for one really liked the individual images or tabs? Not sure what they are called that represented each thread. Feel it gives more depth and is more welcoming. The color layout as well, this white background hurts the eyes! Lol

    Hello!
    Ok, getting used to the new format here, I do have a question that I haven't been able to find an answer. On the old format we had a "add to favorites" category. Is that gone now? Thanks!

    0C152CDE-124E-4CA6-B2C0-A2F8FF533BFD.png A watched thread is a favorite thread. You get alerts when someone posts on it etc. At the top of each thread on the left is Watched Thread button. You can also unwatch it.

    Here is my upper left on this thread. And I did get a notice about your post.

    Ok, thank you Angie. I apologize as I should have asked this question as well on my last post, but what happened to our favorites list from the old format? I checked my watched threads and there is nothing there. I guess I have to start over?

    You missed the post above about the ads. They are where non-logged in and members can see them and help defray the cost of running the site. But for our members we have this handy-dandy Opt-Out system.
    1. Go to User Control Panel Icon (little man in upper right of forum page)
    2. Click on that and when open choose PREFERENCE (left column)
    3. Go to bottom and make a choice

    4. REMEMBER TO SAVE CHANGES

    5. Enjoy the site without ads.

    Angie, have a question for. Being that this is a ML forum why can't we have ads from Track of the Wolf, Dixies Gun Works etc. I would think they would want to place their ads here. Just some thoughts. Hope the hair is getting better. Really like the new site

    That is a good idea. If we can't get rid of the general ads, we may be able to set up something better for the Vendors of Muzzle Loading and Re-enacting items.

    Well at first I sure didn't like the changes at all. First off I couldn't sign in cuz my password was set YEARS ago! I can remmber stuff but geez, that was asking alot, after all in my business I have like 7 different passwords and have to change them every three months, CRAZY.

    So I rejoined to get back and THANKS TO ANGIE I now have my original name and status and just need to figure out the photo avatar thingy. I think we will all be happy with this forum change once we get used to it!

    NOW GO OUT AND VOTE!

    @azmntman Go to the little man icon in the upper right.
    Click on that and it will open up to two columns of preferences
    Left column most of the way down Avatar.
    Click on avatar and you will be able to upload a photo from your laptop or phone.
    Save.

    Well due to the fact that I was originator of the thread,I feel as though I should thank Angie for all her hard work. I have my original name back, no ads and a full screen thanks to her. We old fuddy duddys aren't easy to work with I'm sure!!
    One thing I would like to ask, and forgive me if someone else has already asked this, but could we have our icons next to the sub forums back? I.E, there was a small picture of a cannon the left of the cannon forum, a small picture of a pistol next to the picture forum and so on...it may have been cartoonish to some,mouth I actually liked it and thought it brought warmth to our forum. Thanks again Angie!
