My apologies, but in the process of trying to edit a few of the remarks in the now famous thread on "23 Conquest Impressions", I seem to have corrupted the thing to the point where I cannot get it back.
I'll try again to restore it to its former glory. I do have an archive of it just in case I get lucky and figure out how to get it back into the forum software again.

Sorry to put you through so much trouble.
Sorry also that you feel the need to edit a thread. Hosting a site with a forum is a tough job. I totally agree that the original thread subject got off subject, and that is a shame. I admit I contributed to the diverson.
But the comments and replies that were off subject seemed to me to be at least reasonable "civil" without a lot of vulgarity. And I think they raised/stated some reasonable points.
Would it be reasonable to ask that you just "separated" the comments/replies into the original 23 Conquest thread and the "neo-classic/classic difference of opinion" thread.
It is your site, therefore your call, just a thought. If you feel leaving the difference of opinion posts is of no value or determental to the site, edit away.
Thanks again for the great site and all your had work.

I was just doing a little editing on it, but something went awry and now the darn PERL software won't touch it.
If I can get it back I will...
These little skirmishes are OK while they last, but they're kinda silly to archive.

The now infamous thread on Conquest 23 impressions has been restored, however the thread is closed for further comments.
Also, I have edited the thread by removing material not related to the topic.
This process was a bit awkward because I have to edit the various files directly, instead of using the FORUM editor, etc. But it was a learning experience for me (discovering more about how the forum software works).

Thanks, Jim - I needed that! (smell of Mennen skin bracer).
The Conquest thread looks much better than I remembered(been out of town for the weekend).
Keep up the good work-

If this dissappears, then it's gone!
