    Welcome to the new Garden Pond Forums :regular_waving_emot. I'm currently putting the finishing touches to the upgrade (so the site may be a little slow for the next 30 mins), but this is the main part of the upgrade complete.

    Hopefully you'll find that most things are familiar or intuative. I'm sure that there will be lots of questions on how things work, so please ask away if you get stuck or can't figure out how to do something. This learning curve also applies to the admins/mods, as it's a new process for us too :regular_waving_emot.

    ´╗┐Ian, have you noticed the members custom Avatars, Quite a few are way of center I guess you would call it, RebelAngel above hers is coverering her name. My spell check will not work with this layout and I don't see one in the bar above, and is there a way to have the last post made at the top of the page and not the bottom. That is making everything look really backwards to me.

    I'm working on bug squishing for the next couple of days - so I'm making a big list of everything to fix :). I'm currently working on getting the old attachments working again.

    Any luck on the old attachments? Was looking at Addy's bog post and the flowers/blooms posts and they were still missing.

    Homedepot is starting the perennial sales and they had some nice pictures and names to look at. I've already grabbed some blackeyed susans, coneflowers and some butterfly bushes. Most for only 2-3 bucks each!

    I've got the forum software guys looking at this today, so I hope it's fixed soon. I can manually quick fix some topics, so I'll see if I can do it to that one now (if there are any others that would be helpful before the main fix, just PM me the links). :)
