Tom, sure...If you have a story to share, or reshare, be sure to post it under a new thread.

Er..........actually I wasn't.............

Tried for a week to get on to old site.
A message just said it may have moved or be temporarily down.

Eventually found this new site by advanced search..........
Thought it really unimpressive that no warning was given on old board.
I was actually just left to find this new one by my own devices..........

Same here.
I think there would be a whole sensation of speedo lovers who have not found their way to this swimsuit board.

While I understand the reason for omitting the word "Speedo", it's going to make it difficult for new members to find this site. I think I would have substituted the word "Breif" or "Bikini" in the title. Without new members the prospects for this Board are dim. I would hate to see the board disappear and hope that it can be revieved and prosper. I did a story line once, do you think if I started a new one it would help?

Tom, I completely agree! While I am getting more used to the new layout, I am surprised at how few posts there are. I am a daily visitor, have been for years, and I had trouble finding the board this morning. I really hope it takes off and we find lots of new members! I love to come and get my Speedo fix!! Now that its too cold here in North Jersey, I'm really missing my Speedos

Well its been over a month now and the number of posting has picked up.
Unfortunatily, as the activity has increased its becoming more confusing to follow. This system of having to page through old post to find an added comment to an existing storyline is a pain in the ass. Lets not forget that these storylines are not going to be deleted at the end of the month. What going to happen when they get to be 20 or 30 pages long? Why not add replies to the top of the stroyline instead of the bottom or put in an option to allow us to "go to" the new post directly. I fully understand that the old site was a major problem for Mike and it needed to be updated. What I don't see is how anyone can consider this an improvment. I'm not a happy camper and I don't think I am alone. I could easily just stop contributing to the site, as so many other long term members have, but I don't want to see it disappear.

You are not alone Tom and I keep banging the drum for simplicity of operation
-- and not to find that an 'improvement' instead requires more and more complex navigation.
I remain of the opinion that regular archiving was not a bad thing and one
only has to scan the threads to see that everybody has mostly said what they want to say within a month and the topic therefore fizzles out.

On the old board I liked the chat room. There doesn't seem to be a chat room here. Is that right? If there is one can somebody please point it out, sorry for missing it if its here.

A question, we used to get sort of openly sexual in speedo talk on the old board especially in the chat room. I like speedos to wear for swimming and kick around the house in but they also do have a special sexual quality I have always enjoyed. Are we allowed to talk about the sexual aspect of speedos here? There doesn't seem to be much of that conversation on this new board. If its OK to do it I want to start a new thread on first time you lets say fulfilled yourself in a speedo. I remember that very fondly.

Default kumu and chat

LOL - the way things are going I'm not sure you're allowed to put speedo in your post.

The question of a chat room has been raised (I can't find the post on it for the moment despite the wonders of searchability in our new facilities).

Mike's reply was that he would be considering providing such, (the space for which could be gained by eliminating Lycra Forums ).
(the words about Lycra being mine, not his, I hasten to add).
