Your fearless Mod Team has added some new special interest hobby topics, and shifted around some of the old fourms.

The biggest difference you may notice is that the Shaving Den has become the Haberdashery (still shaving, but also clothes and other grooming) and The Speakeasy has been combined with The Kitchen (not just drink, but also food.)

The Humidor and Snuff Box are now under Tobacco, because... well, you know.

Feel free to jump right in, but you should expect some more shifting in the next few days.

Your pal,
Doc

Update on the Upgrade:

All of the new interest topics are in place. Some of you are already diving right in, cool beans.

There is a temporary holding are for fourms that have been emptied when we combined two or more. The descriptions will indicate where to find old posts. (The 'Search' and 'Show My Posts' features still work for that, too.)

After a little time for you to get used to it, we'll deleted the old topics take them upstate to a big sunny farm where they can frolic with other retired topics.

A few more changes are on the way... we'll keep you posted.

A guide to the new-and-improved BoB categories:

NEW & UPDATED PIPE & TOBACCO CATEGORIES

Tobacciana & Accessories - Anything to do with smoking that isn't a pipe or a tobacco: tampers, racks, collectible tins, old ads, lighters, cleaners, etc.

Tobacco Cellars & Smoking Rooms - Expanded from just Tobacco Cellars. All about collections and the rooms that house them.

Ye Olde Pipe Rack - Absorbs Perfect Straightgrain and Pipe Reviews. All talk about pipes, regardless of grade or opinion.

Tobacco Jar - Absorbs Tobacco Reviews. Half of all tobacco talk is some kind of review or recommendation anyway.

NEW & UPDATED COMMUNITY CATEGORIES

Community in Action - Absorbs Mile Marker & Community Calendar. Anything about the BoB community, online or in the real world (including technical news/questions/suggestions about the board.)

Life Events - Birthdays, holidays, moves, travels, and other big, personal news. Keep us posted. This is also where career/job talk should go, so it absorbs Help Wanted.

NEW & UPDATED "RELATED PURSUITS"

The Haberdashery - Absorbs the Shaving Den. All discussion of clothing, accessories, and grooming.

The Kitchen & The Speakeasy - Talk about food and cooking, as well as booze.

Technology - Talk about computers, gadgets, and engineering. (Tech problems with the board should go in Community in Action or better yet, PM a Moderator.)

The Motorway - Discussion of cars, trucks... anything with wheels or an engine.

Field & Stream - Outdoorsmanship talk: hunting, fishing, camping, sport shooting, and all the gear that goes with.

Arts & Entertainment - Discussion of the fine and popular arts. TV, cinema, theatre, painting, sculpture, etc. (Music talk can still go in the Music Hall.)

Stay tuned... a few more handy changes are in The Works.

Hope you're enjoying the new forums.

The retired forums have been removed, which should make it easier for you to see the ChatBox feature (which still lives on the front page for any Brothers who wish to use it.)

One new forum in the P&T category: Pipe Techniques. All your questions and discoveries about preparation, smoking, cleaning, and repair techniques can go there. Should be a helpful space for any BoB eager to learn something new.

Gents,

In hopes of gathering some of the great ideas scattered throughout the board, there's a new forum for DIY Pipe & Tobacco topics. Any amateur or semi-pro growing, blending, carving, accessory making, etc. can go there. (Obviously, pros are very welcome to share tips & tricks.)

I may try and move some relevant threads from elsewhere into the new space, so if you can't find something you've posted elsewhere, check there.

Bros: Depending on which browser you use, you may be noticing some changes to the formatting tools when you post or reply to a topic.

It now has more rich text features and can embed more kinds of media. As for the most important techology on all the Web, the emoticons ("smileys") have moved to a menu above, rather than beside the entry box.

I want to stress that this is a HOST UPGRADE. The mods did not ask for it, could not veto nor approve it, and cannot "put it back the way you're used to." It's actually not a bad little upgrade. You'll get used to it, and you'll be glad to hear that the cost of membership here remains, as ever, $0/year.

Sincerely,
Doc
