I just saw this too, thanks, I'll sign up.

Just signed up & had a look around.  Our forum here appears to me anyway, much easier to read & more 'user friendly'

Yeah when I set up this forum I looked at the various alternatives including phpBB (which that Garmin forum uses) and the one I eventually went with (SMF).  I prefer SMF and when the new version comes out it will be even cleaner.


I posted a "Hello" in the newbie section & I get a message that my post will only be shown once it's been approved by one of the mods?  How odd. If we had that sort of restriction here, it wouldn't work at all. The mods would be forever vetting posts & everything would be delayed / slowed down.

The same can be done with this forum - it's an anti spam measure.  Usually the mods make it so the first few posts have to be manually checked and approved and then future posts just work as normal.

It can be a bit of a PITA, and as our other SPAM protection has been working pretty well haven't had any need to put it in place here.  I like to keep things as easy as possible for legit users.

Perhaps those here who have registered on the zumo forum can post their zumo member name in this thread, then we can 'friend' each other on the zumo forum. Good way to keep in touch and bring across any discussions / info of note to here.

In any event I'm VladTepes over there too.
