Good point -- I'll add my thank you to Richard, Brad and Jim. The only glitch I encountered was not being able to reuse my previous user name - it's marked as reserved. (But that may have been a self-inflicted wound from registering prematurely. When the dust settles maybe we can fix it then.)

Thanks for all the hard work to the Richard and his team at Genii - this had to have been a royal pain in the neck.

Mark Williams, you will always be able to read the Forum, just not post. If you live in Vegas, why not mosey over to one of the many Houdini magic shops and buy a copy each month. Then you can post. :)

Well Done, Richard

..............what a great idea it is to allow only Genii subscribers to post.

You will lose some posters, that is to be expected, but I imagine that you will, or should, gain many new subscriptions.

You and your team are to be congratulated on the smooth transition that this has been.

Cheers, as always, from the Emerald Isle,

Richard got my subscription today. I was also a fence sitter, always meaning to subscribe but never getting around to it. So I hope it works out well for Genii magazine.

Nicely done all the way around.

The whole process of re-registering was very quick and simple. If my memory serves me well, I believe Genii Forum originally asked members to register with their real name, to prevent exactly what had happened. All efforts will be well worth the trouble to restore the integrity of the forum.

Hi All,
I read the forum often, but haven't posted in the past. Perhaps that'll change. Anyhow, it is good to be here.

I am re-registered and it was easy!! Thanks Richard--I am proud to be a subscriber and to have this forum as an additional benefit to my subscription. I found it extremely interesting that some of the folks that talk the most, have the strongest opinions and always have something to sell--were the first ones to run for the hills when told they should subscribe to enjoy this benefit. Go figure!!

It worked just fine for me. No complaint here.

I can't blame you for doing this at all, Richard.

I asked a question that I found the answer to.

To paraphrase a famous philosopher...

Lame, I know...

Here's to many new subscriptions to Genii. Good on you, Richard and crew!

Good to be back! (Only three member numbers behind Steve Snediker...)

I've got a bizarre login name, though. (Not the name you see.) My finger slipped, I typed an extra letter, and then hit "submit." Only when I got my confirmation email did I realize what a doofus I was.

Hope I can remember how to log in! :D

Postby Guest » 01/17/08 07:25 AM

Well kids, for good or for bad, here I is!

Postby David Oliver » 01/17/08 08:34 AM

I've been away for a few days. Anything interesting happen on the Forum while I was gone? ;)

Glad to be back and hope to post atleast once a week.

Postby pduffie » 01/17/08 09:05 AM

The only downside to all of this is that I have lost my "007" membership number. I can longer call myself the James Bond of Magic :)

Does it work? Does it work? It seems so...

Will the avatar work? I see one can be specified in the profile, but I haven't seen any so far...

I'm all for the new posting requirements. Got tired of the mad rush to the forum every time the big green board crashed.

That was an easy process. Good to be back. And glad to see everything made it through the transition relatively unscathed.

Hath not a non-subscriber eyes? Hath not a non-subscriber hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a subscriber is?

NOTE: All new re-registrations were accidentally wiped by Brad. Everyone must re-register again. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience! PLEASE REMEMBER TO FILL IN YOUR REAL NAME UNDER WHICH YOU SUBSCRIBED TO GENII IN THE NEW LINE ON THE REGISTRATION FORM. You are still free to use an alias for your posts.
