Can’t stress enough how much I’m enjoying having a new forum. Very thankful and I hope it continues to grow.
The forum plug in does seems to be quite basic though. I know most of these probably won’t be able on the platform but I do miss a few things from the old forum such as

And a general bit of colour really! Like the city lights on the main site.
I mean it in a constructive way, though. I’m just happy to have any discussion at all!
Benj, I agree with a lot on your list. I’m sure running this forum must take a lot of time and effort and I’m extremely grateful for it. I don’t want to be a complainer more if a gentle suggestion that some the ideas Benj suggested be implemented as the forum grows. Keep up the good work and thanks!!!
I feel like A LOT of forumers from the old platform have not joined this one which sucks. I found the older one to be a lot more interactive with other members. This is not a complaint just an observation. Since the old one just sort of disappeared for the longest time before this one launched, I think it should be advertised a little more on their social media. Before the GOTR Stopover in Simcoe ON, I met a girl of the forum from Manitoba and we ended up meeting at the show. I hope the Forum is able to grow and become what is was before.
I do have a suggestion even though not really related to the forum itself, it’s rather to Mumfords. I’m pretty sure there are thousands of fans who would love to learn how to play your songs on guitar/banjo. We live in times of YouTube bloggers so got an idea of Marcus having his YouTube channel where he would learn how to play their songs on a guitar while Winston could do the same with respect to banjo. Have a thought of it please. Thank you.
