    It's on the 'Quick Links' menu button.

    Glad you guys made it over :D. The database transfer was surprisingly smooth... :computer:(famous last words?)

    Yeah as Maurice said it's on the Quick Links menu. The software here is a little different, but I'm working on getting the counter and quick mark button working (having problems with the unread post counter though).

    I was afraid that since I went and made an account last week on Techforumz, it would screw up your merge. Glad to see it went smoothly.

    Welcome Techforumz members. It is good to have you on board as part of the family.

    I have a suggestion, Might it be an idea to rename the Dell Outlet to 'trading post' or something? I know selling/buying items on forums can lead to a minefield of issues, but could be better than limiting ourselves to purely Dell machines / parts

    The problem is the Dell Outlet is the name of the dell cheap section (http://www.dell.co.uk/outlet) which the old forum was designed to discuss. I agree it's not an ideal name, but I think changing it now would confuse the imported members. Once they get used to things in a few months we can re-organise that section (I kept it as-is for now). :)
