Dave,

I really like the forum setup. It's SO nice being able to subscribe only to platforms that interest me. It was a bit confusing. If you see a Checkbox and "Subscribe" that means you aren't subscribed. It sort of reminded me of the Word Press Phenomenon where people see a post with "No Comments" under it and they think that means "No, You are not allowed to comment". But it really means "There are no comments yet."

And don't be surprised if the majority of people don't "move over" until AFTER the day you say you are pulling the plug on the "OLD"

Again, thanks for doing this.

I know exactly what you mean. I have had some trouble when doing options on various mobile devices for this very reason. For example, on the iPhone, if I have an option like:

Field is Visible

I wondered- should I show a check box next to it if set? but then what if it's not set, an x next to Field is Visible? Or should I say Field is Not Visible and then when they select it says Field is Visible? I opted for the latter choice, but always wonder what's the best way!
