      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Sporting a New Look

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

As you might have noticed, I couldn't leave well enough alone and have been dinking around with the look and feel of the forum again.

If you feel like you're getting dull pencils slowly jammed into your eyes, you can easily go back to the old blue theme with just a few clicks. To do so, just click here to edit your preferences. In the Board Theme pull down menu, select "Shades" for the old theme or just leave it set to "default" for the new polished green theme.

I look at this forum so much that I've long ago lost my ability to see it through the eyes of other people. So I value your comments and feedback. You can either reply to this post or PM me. Thanks!

Mana is like respect. You get it from other users. You can give mana to anyone for any reason. It's one of the features of this forum software (WowBB) that I just hadn't enabled. We'll try it and if it seems to be screwy, such as a new grasshopper having maxed out mana, then I'll disable it.

I am liking the new look, although I did log on this morning, and say "Jaysus,what the hell is this?!"

It does modernize the wholesite and drag it out of the early 2005's, and into the future... LOL;)

Me, too! Honestly, at first I wasn't sure I liked it but the more I work in it, the better I like it. Gives the board a more polished look.

Thanks for everyone's comments!
