    Today I’m exploring the new forum layout! I feel like we have a stiff new couch and we have to drag all the old pillows and blankets over to make it properly cozy.

    Today I venture back to TORC and there are shiny new forums! I hope everyone finds their way here.

    Hi, just checking out how this works, and making sure my username shows up as it should!

    Okay, looking good!

    I’m here. 🙂 Wondering how everyone will react to not having “levels” of posts to work up to anymore… like the several Ringbearers, and people like me who never quite made it up to Mariner… oh well. There won’t be any date-of-joining either, am I right?

    Levels will come back soon. I’ll spruce up the look feel in the next few weeks! Prancing Pony/Role Playing forum is back too 🙂

    And thanks for the guilds! I didn’t notice them before.

    Other question: how about the Edit function? I’m one of those compulsives (not OCD, but CDO–they have to be in alpha order) who copy-edits not only before sending, but also afterward, because I’m a lousy typist. And sometimes I forget to mention something. And I’m definitely not alone!

    And are we going to get emojis again?

    I always liked the preview function on a post. That was a good way to check it out to see how it looked. Especially photos. Can we embed photos? hmmmm…..

      We’ll eventually be bringing in more features too. I want this to take on a more community environment, more than just a forums… so we have a timeline/news feed, member connections, and the ability to follow other members.

      We’ll add photos back eventually, and maybe a preview too.

    Today, I’m running late. My daughter was late the nursery, Wilko is late to work (well, to the spare room) and I haven’t even started my cup of coffee. I’ve got a Teams meeting in quarter of an hour for the MVP that I’m a member of (that’s Maternity Voices Partnership – a committee of parents (currently all mothers), parents-to-be (again, just mothers-to-be, it’s tricky getting the other halves involved!), and midwives and other maternity support professionals working to ensure that new parents and parents-to-be receive the best care possible from our local services).

    It’s our first catch up in a while, so should be good. It’s been an interesting year – we had lots of great plans in place for 2020, but needless to say, they all went down the proverbial plughole!

    Today it snowed in London for the first time in a couple of years so I went for a socially distant walk around the nearest park with a neighbour and her dog. I am wrapped up in a snuggly blanket on the couch, having spent the afternoon watching the film The Fall on DVD.

    I admit, I haven’t been to this site for a long time … however, This is an important topic that has helped to make people more aware of these issues.

    I have to watch so I can let the driver in. Otherwise he (or she) will just leave it by the door, (in all the snow) and go.

    As part of the delivery instructions, I’ve ask that the drivers call of text me when they get here, but they never do.

    Today, I returned to TORC after several weeks – and found it quite different than how I remembered! 😂

    I used to be Thor ‘n’ Oakenshield on the previous forums (quite liked that username, too, but had no recollection whatsoever of the password I originally used), but I hope I’ll be able to fit in comfortably here on these brand-new forums – everything seems so sleek and modern! As for my absence, that had to do with a ruptured appendix and emergency surgery that left me feeling pretty awful for a few weeks: but I’m pretty much fully recovered now, no longer feel like my insides are trying to strangle me alive, and I can’t wait to explore these new forums fully!
