This is an idea that I came up with, and with the help of others that post here, just maybe we can make a difference. As we all know the fate of this board (the old board), is in doubt. The powers that be would like for us to migrate to the new board, which most of us prefer not to do. Also, Sears and *** **** and working on a new website, so this further raises the future of this board. So here's my idea, if everyone would post replies stating what they like/dislike with regards to both boards, state possible concessions that would be tolerable for a new board, etc. Then with everyone's input we could alert Handyman of the posts, and hopefully they would take into account our concerns/preferrences/etc, when designing the new website, and most likely a new message board. Anyway it's a thought that may allow US to be heard and considered when they bring the new website online.
I'll wait to post my observations as a response to this after a few others have responded.
