    Is there a way to see other members Gots/Wants right now?

    If you are in the Conversation thread, at the top there is a link that says "Leave Conversation" That will delete it, and then you can choose to receive more posts or not from there.

    I actually like the set up of this forum better than the other, its certainly more advanced.

    I would be down for this also. Even if it's not the homepage, maybe just a "rundown" link or "top threads" page.

    Great work so far! Are we getting our "stats" back? I.E. the number of Breweries, styles, states etc.?

    Whew! I feel less anxious now about this transition. Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious to me.

    There is a Whats New hyperlink at top of page so you can see all recent threads, giving same functionality old site with being able to see all threads without going into each forum

    As a web developer, I know how much work this is so thank you!

    Currently I am unable to add beers. Any thoughts? It currently says I need 20 reviews (which I meet).

    What about old posts I have entered? I want to go back to one of my old forum posts, but don't know how to get there.

    Still having some trouble getting used to this new stuff but i'm trying to stay optimistic about it, I don't see my hads anywhere i've looked though.

    As of right now, I liked the simplicity of the old BA much more.

    Since things are changing here anyway, perhaps now would be a good time to suggest an easy addition which would probably be appreciated: an RSS feed of one's recent beer reviews. I was able to create one from the old profile page with the help of feed43, but obviously that doesn't work anymore... I think many people would like to share their beer reviews on facebook, on their on webpages etc., so an RSS feed including links to the review, beer, brewery, style, rating would be great.

    Looking forward to seeing how the new site will look.

    I'm hoping these eventually comes back, too. There's so much information in the old forums that I miss having access to, even as an archive.

    As stated in the updates ... we'll eventually be archiving them, but it's not a priority at the moment.

    If you search Google you can view a cached version of the old forums if you need.

    As another developer, yes, I appreciate the effort, but (not wanting to sound harsh) I don't think it has as good info as the old layout and it is no more useable. I hope I see some benefit but so far I have not.

    Hi. Any way to search for fellow BA's by my area, such as type in a city under search and all BA's in that city are shown? Thank you, Brian

    There isn't. There wasn't before either. Well, at one point there was, but we removed it due to too many stores/bars using it to spam.

    Yeah it's certainly missing the integrated feeling. On one account it's more usable on the iPad and the server is much faster.

    Is the integration coming back? The rewards aka beer karma kept me coming back and participating so heavily. The next step seems unclear. The forums are still fun though. Good discussion.

    Yes. As per the updates we're working on it. We'll update everyone once it's complete.

    Would LOVE an RSS feed for reviews...or otherwise have the "share" function for Facebook, Twitter, whatever. That would be outstanding.
