Title: Way to go!
Post by: denny on October 15, 2009, 10:27:43 PM
Gary, Cindy, Lindsay, everybody.....this is a great day!  We're on our way to the kind of website we've all been waiting for.  THANK YOU so much for all your hard work!

Nicely done! This is a far more inviting site than before. It is obvoius that a lot of hard work has gone into this, and I can see the day when hundreds, nay, thousands of AHA members come to this site and tap into it, both providing their knowledge and finding out things they never knew before.

Fiftenn years ago or so when the Internet began to become more mainstream with the advent of user-friendly browsers, homebrewers as a whole jumped in to share and find knowledge. And even before browsers, there was a healthy community sharing though the Homebrew Digest and other boards.

Now we have the capability to share in a much more "robust" way, to a larger population. And in the end, grow this into the onternational community of homebrews. Tres cool guys and gals!

Hey PP and Matt!  Welcome!  It's great to see you both here.  Actually, it's great to see everybody here!  I think we should all raise a toast to Gary and the AHA staff and web team!

Heh, luckily I use this same exact forum style "SMF 1.1.10" on another forum and I'm already used to it.

Nice to see the AHA coming into the INTERNET age finally

Scott, it's a pleasure to have you here!  Hope to see you more often.

Post by: Brew.Drink.Repeat. on November 04, 2009, 10:27:46 PM
Congrats! Glad to see an official forum for the AHA. (TechTalk is OK, but the digest format just got to be too cumbersome to use and I found myself not participating as much as I'd have liked to. I'm just more of a forum guy, easier to view, definitely easier to search.)

Good to see some familiar faces around here, too...

Hi Denny!!!

It is always a pleasure to see an old hippie!
Title: Re: Way to go!

You wouldn't recognize me, man....I shaved off my beard!
Title: Re: Way to go!
Post by: dbeechum on November 04, 2009, 10:31:20 PM
I shaved off my beard!

Is a hippie without his beard still a hippie? Hmm....

Does look great, and you're already getting linked to!  I just found it via http://www.examiner.com/x-241-Beer-Examiner~y2009m11d4-New-website-for-homebrewers-unveiled (http://www.examiner.com/x-241-Beer-Examiner~y2009m11d4-New-website-for-homebrewers-unveiled)

As far as figuring out formatting... it really confused me when I clicked the "Next" link at the bottom of this page and it took me to another post instead of page 2 of this post... now I realize it means "next post in this forum," but that wasn't clear.  Other than that, the site is awesome!  Congrats on getting it launched.

Looks like I recognize a few people here already! Grats for getting the new site up AHA. This will be great for exchanging ideas.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This new forum is what I have been waiting for since I became a member.  AHA TechTalk was clunky at best, though did provide some good information.  Now we'll have something that we can search and get more immediate help on.

Great job.   :D

Kudos to all at the AHA who worked on this site. It is going to be a new home on the net for many of us.

This is all looking good.  One question though.  Are you going to provide me with some extra time to devote to this forum and website content, time that I might not currently have?  ;)

cheers

I'm going to share this forum with members of my local brew club in Central IL. We have our monthly meeting next Monday, I'll bring it up during our business meeting before the drinking begins. Hopefully, it will help others learn more about this awesome hobby.

Also, this site looks great. I am looking forward to exploring it in detail.

Please, everybody, keep in mind that this site represents the AHA, which is not just a boy's club like some of the forums can be.  The AHA consists of women and families, too.  Please respect all AHA members in your choice of topics, language, and even avatars.  Not that I see anything out of line right now, but I'm tryin' to head off any potential problems.
