Hey Jim & Sunshine... Great to see some old... or maybe not old but familiar faces around here.  My lilacs are thanks to you Jim.  They've always been important to me.  I'm looking forward to seeing the new site.

HELLO BUTTINGOUT2014 I WOULD BE FOREVER GREATFUL IF YOU COULD HELP ME TO MOVE MY AVATAR TO OUR NEW SITE.  MY YELLOW ROSE WITH SUNSHINE UNDER IT WAS CREATED SPECIALLY FOR ME BY CAT LADY AND IT HAS BECOME MY NEW IDENTIFICATION SO I WOULD BE DEVASTATED IF I WERE TO LOSE IT

Wow Jim, I'd love to have an avatar, so once we are into the new system and you have some time, let me know, and I will gladly take you up on your generous offer.  That would be really cool!

Hey everyone!!!
So happy to hear that there's gonna be a makeover given to this aging resource!
(Without this site / and everyone's support, I doubt I could've made it to where I am - but it definitely was in need of a makeover)
 
As for everyone's "avatar" I'd be more than happy to re-create some new avatars for each person in the group that would like it - or even just "backup" those avatars that you have NOW (if that's what you'd like)
 
I know that when I first joined the site, it was one of the little things that kept my mind busy / occupied and not thinking about the demon weed.
 
Cheers to all of you WONDERFUL quitters - and I hope to re-join the site when it's rebuilt!!!  :P
 
Your smoke-free friend, Jim.

Hey Kishu,
 
I love your lilacs and I hope you can figure out how to reload that picture.  I have no idea how to do any stuff like that, but I always admire your flowers when you post!

THANKS SO MUCH KYLE FOR KEEPING OUR PRECIOUS QUIT METERS AND I HAVE COPY/PASTED EVERY BIT OF INFORMATION THAT I CAN KEEP.  I EVEN COPY/PASTED MY HALL OF FAME STORY AS THIS IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW CHANGES AND I MIGHT BE AN OLD DOG BUT I CAN STILL LEARN NEW TRICKS.  MY ONLY HARDSHIP THESE DAYS IS WAITING FOR MY NEW LAPTOP TO COME SO I CAN GET RID OF THIS NOT SO GOOD ONE AND THEN I WILL BE ABLE TO POST IN HERE AGAIN.  HAVE A GREAT DAY

Hi everyone,
 
Kishu - you should have received an e-mail on Thursday afternoon that explained some of the new features and the changeover. We sent it to all members who had logged in at least once in 2017.
 
sunshine - We will absolutely have a quit meter. We know how much you all love and use that feature, so it will be front and centre on the new site with some new features. You will need to re-enter your quit meter details, though. That means your quit date, cigarettes/day, cigarettes/pack, and cost of a pack.
 
There will be some outages today, but the new site will be fully live by tomorrow!

Hi Kishu, You should be getting the email regarding the launch since your post on this forum indicates that your account is still open. However, when the new site launches everyone will need to re-register. Kyle may also have more feedback if there was anything I missed, but hope this helps. Thanks, Sophia Quit Coach

Hi Kyle... who do you consider to be existing clients?  I've been around for a few years now and like to check in and comment occasionally.
Will I fall off the list?

Hey Doyle,
 
Yes, soon we will be posting a notice with our launch date here on the Forums as well as sending an e-mail to existing clients.  There will be one more e-mail sent to clients after the site has launched.
