    Hey all, just curious if this forum has been purged somehow? I joined a few years back after meeting Jeff Randall a couple times at Shot Show in Vegas. That, and I love ESEE knives.
    Long story short, I haven't been here in a while due to a move, and when I came back I couldn't sign in, so had to rejoin. Amazingly I got to use my old user name though.
    Anybody have any input on this?

    They changed the platform they were using for the forum and we all had to re-up last September. Biggest disappointment was when they shut down the other forum and we are unable to go back and retrieve any wisdom/humor/advice from that other setup. Not often you get a chance to start over.

    Your login was available because nobody else used it. Many members changed their logins in the changeover. Also some that had been banned on the other forum have been allowed to join again. It is good to have them back. There have also been some long time members that made the move, only to then leave on their own.

    Thanks for the info. PS, do they have any smileys hidden in the posting here?

    Yes on the smileys.

    :);):(:mad::confused::cool::p:D:eek::oops::rolleyes:o_O

    On format line at the top of the "box" where you type in your post is a smiling face. It is where you choose B for bold, I for italics, U for underline, etc. Click on it and these show up. Click on the one or more that you want to use.
