It looks like tomorrow will be the final day that QuickTopic will accept new posts. The final shutdown will occur in a couple weeks. So, after November 27, we will begin using the new forum as shown in the post below. I hope everyone has signed up by now and will begin posting there starting tomorrow. As I said a few posts back, the new forum is a bit quirky but we should get use to it fairly quickly. The forum as is is not very active but it will completely stop if people do not sign up on the new forum. We really can't afford to loose a single member.

Hello all - helpful info from Jeff's webmaster, Norberto, on the new site:

Most of the QuickTopic users think that their accounts were transferred to the new forum, so, they try to enter with their quicktopic credentials and they can't. They need to register in the new forum. We don't have their user/pass credentials, and forumotion doesn't have import tools to work with QuickTopic

Ergo, you did have to set up a new registration on Forumotion. Here again is the link - the LogIn and Register icons are at the top right of the page:

Julie, sorry - no info on photo. I just grab photos that appeal to me when I come across them. This is from the Mario Lanza greatest tenor of the 21st century site. My first encounter with the Lanza voice was at about 12-13 at the drive-in movie, watching TGC. I was so poor in 1959 I had no radio or tv. Someone told me Lanza died and I went to a neighbor's house and called the public library to confirm.

Diane, great photo. Can you tell us something about it? I hope to try to join the new forum , but if not, won't ever forget all of our friends through the years.

I managed to fill out the first page of the registration at the new site, but the second page didn't let me verify my password...it just wouldn't let me put anything into that field. I tried with 2 browsers, Firefox and Chrome without success.

It would be great if some or all of the many pages of the existing forum could be copied over to the new forum...or if some of the existing forum history could be downloaded before it disappears.

Today I ran into this interesting history of Lanza, "The Mario Lanza Story narrated by Peter Clayton." I don't remember hearing this before, and I don't know if it has been mentioned before here. I haven't listened to it from beginning to end yet, but, jumping through it I found some interesting stories.

Sam, I received the Mario Lanza caricature by Al Kilgore. I like it very much. He did an excellent job of creating it ! Thanks, again.

Stick with it a little longer Diane. I'm leaving town for a couple weeks, maybe some of the quirks will be figured out by the time I return.

Tried a couple times to register on the new site. As I contribute very little, just read, this may be my time to fade into the sunset. I've enjoyed the forum through the years and am a member of a couple other sites that are fairly active. Might try again later when the kinks ae out.

Dennis, I know nothing about this site at all. I have read a few reviews, some bad but mostly favorable. Remember, it is a free forum so the software behind it will not be state of the art. Jeff wants this forum to continue so I appreciate his efforts, even if it takes a while and a little frustration to get use to the new site.

Thanks Martino. Any idea how long this site has been hosting forums? It is remarkably complicated, non-intuitive, and still has dead links and the irritating light blue print on a dark brown background which is terrible on my aging vision.

Dennis, you are shown as a registered member on the new forum. There are only two topics available at this time, classified and administrative (actually, administrative was created by the moderator and is called "Your first subject". Bill and I have both done test posts on the "Your first subject" topic. I checked the FAQ section and it does explain how to present a new topic but clicking on that option does nothing, it is a dead choice. Until further clarification is given or someone stumbles on to a method to present new topics, we will have to use "Your first subject" to write messages.

Trying it on second day. Still believes that I am registered, but insists on sending me to Admin forum. Martino, is that where you are posting? Shouldn't we have a forum called "general" or "current" or "base", etc. Evidently if we want to discuss Jonas Kauffman, for example, we can start a new forum under that name, but I prefer the simpler approach of just chronologically posting.

ANNA FOUND WHAT SHE THINKS IS THE RIGHT PASSWORD BUT IT DIDN'T WORK. ALSO IT DOESN'T LET ME TRY A NEW PASSWORD. THIS MAY BE GOODBYE.

I CANNOT JOIN. IT ACCEPTS MY NAME BUT ASKS FOR MY GOOGLE PASSWORD AND HAVE NO IDEA OF IT. DOESN'T HELP THAT MY OLD FRIEND DEPRESSION IS BACK. AND I FEEL SO BAD I HAVE TO MISS THE BALL WEEKEND.
