Dear John! Or should that be 'Dearest John'?! :)

I very much appreciate all the hard work that must have gone on behind the scenes over the last months in order to create this new site. Thank you very much!

Just one plea from an average quilter in her 60s, with average intelligence, and some basic knowledge of computing: Please, keep it simple!

For me personally, the Forum is most important. And linked to that, the ability to privately contact members quickly and easily.

If you are ever in the UK (and that goes for Bob as well), the drinks are on me.

And now I better go and struggle a little more with this new site. :)

Even one newsletter a week would be okay with me as I don't receive any and haven't for some time despite ticking the box I was supposed to. Is it because I is Irish? :(

Also, I tried to post a photo to the 2014 BOM Show and Tell but there is no way to do it. I guess that's going to get sorted pretty soon too?

Renata, I agree with you about the privacy settings, I am not happy to have everything viewable by the public even though I have adjusted all my settings to members of TQS only.

John, I really appreciate your corresponding with us, it makes a big difference. Thank you. :cheer: :cheer:

Three newsletters is fine with me and I like the M W and F pace.

tech support must have gotten quite a few emails from unhappy members, but I got a reply very quickly and is now resolved.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do some tutorials on how and why to navigate this site. I am sure I'm not the only one having trouble, it would be very helpful.

P.S. Will be going to the TQS taping on Monday with Nancy Rehak, woohoo.

I checked online and uploading pictures with an iPad is an issue. I will have our new moderator help with this.

John, while on the FORUM, I just asked a question about the role of the moderator under the topic of where are the blogs. Because I found your response, I deleted my question. However, when I went over to TQS COMMUNITY, my question was still there! That's not right.. a DELETE should be a DELETE! Looks like a glitch to me...

Also, my settings are set up to MEMBERS ONLY, yet anyone can see anything I write on the FORUM even though I've intended it for members, not the general public. Even if you don't have a membership (even a free one), anyone can read the FORUM entries. Is there somewhere in the Terms and Conditions that says that's okay? Why have privacy settings if they can't be used? I love to share information and be free with my words with other members; this is a great place to do it. But if the Forum is completely available to non-members, I just as soon participate a whole lot less. I'm sure I am not the only one who feels this way. A simple google search brings up EVERYTHING we say on the FORUM. BTW, after I write something on the FORUM, when I switch over to TQS COMMUNITY, I noticed that, despite my settings, everything attributed to me is "public" not "members only" as I have my preferences set to...

I'd appreciate it, if at some time, when convenient, you could address some of these issues with your members. I understand how busy everyone must be in trying to address the various issues you might not have anticipated in the transition. They can wait, but they are important underlying issues.

John, under the old system you could either send an email or private message. If the member receiving the email did not mind sharing their email address, all they had to do was respond to that email. Will that still be available? It is very useful. Thanks!
