Is it me or is this new site not populated yet with members, topics and replies? I don’t see much discussion or topics as of today when I got logged on with my password. Hope it gets better with time or email me with further instructions if it’s just operator error on my part (and it surely could be that). Thanks.
Missing the old forum ease of use but agree with and applaud the parameters of the new system. I always advocated for clearing house for posts some way before they were published and posted to the site, especially posts made anonymously or attacking other members or just embarrassing comments that reflected on the Union poorly.June 11, 2018 at 9:17 am #3452
I agree. I visited the site on Saturday and found that it was no longer there. I signed-in to the new one and it took sometime to navigate it and found no posts. What gives?June 11, 2018 at 10:08 am #3457
Sorry that the forum is empty. We cut over recently and everyone needs to be approved before posting. We want to keep all posts honest. Glad you are in and posting, hopefully we will fill up the forum again soon.June 11, 2018 at 10:24 am #3458
No need to apologize. I was sure it was my inability or lack of tech knowledge certainly not a criticism. I’ve been looking for a teenager to try to school me on this new type system, much like working a new cell phone Stuck out tongue winking eye Change is always difficult for us geezers to accept and adapt to quickly. I am proudly the original FOG and act like it more every day.. The posts will grow with time and we will all get better at the new system. Thanks for all your hard work. I applaud the positive changes, they were long overdue.June 11, 2018 at 10:45 am #3460

Hope all is well with you and your family.
We are living up near Fenwick Island now near the family and will return to Florida in the winter if all goes well with Pat. Since her Heart valve replacement she wanted to be near family. Same weather here as a Florida summer already. Hot & more humid than Florida Glad to see you posting on the new site.
