Hi all, my name is Michael Gresham, and this is my site to give people a chance to connect in, and about, Michigan City Indiana. My vision is to give people a place to talk about their City through a well-moderated, open access forum. Initially I have areas set up for local news, sports, business, and an off topic area. This will give people a chance to talk about what is going on in their town, and exchange information with other people.

If people have ideas, questions, comments or anything else feel free to post them here, to send me an emai,l or a private message.

As you may know, I am trying to get people to send the link to everyone on their e-ddress list.

Do you think it would be better to have the posts in the threads in newest-to-oldest order? I do, because when you click on a topic, you don't want to see the original posts all the time, you want the new stuff. That is how most MBs are, I think.

Oldest to newest makes it easiest to read if they haven't seen that particular thread before... That's the way I have always seen it done.

Roger, keyboard tip: If you want to jump to the end of the page to see the last post without having to scroll through all the old stuff, hit Ctrl + End and you will jump to the bottom. To get back to the top, hit Ctrl + Home and poof! You're back to the top.

I have always seen these things oldest on top, but many have a short cut button at the top that will take you to the bottom. As a matter of fact, Feedback is the only place I've seen newest at the top.

Yeah some of the old bulletin boards had the new to old format, but I help run about a half dozen other message board, the largest with over 3500 members and 1.3 million posts, and I have yet to hear anyone else say it was backwards from what they were used to.

Ohmigod! It's happened again--I'm right, and 3,502 people are wrong!


I used to go on the Left behind boards years ago before they changed it, runner's world, and a few others, and they all went new to old. If your experience is different, was it because you run all yours the same way? What is your experience with boards other people run?

I have hung out on ABC/LOST!, ESPN.com, Snopes, PaulMcCartney.com, NTN.com, and a few others off of the top of my head, at different times, and they are all formated the same way.

Well, ok, but it still is harder and less elegant (in the math proof sense) to do it your way. Too bad there is not an option to do either.

It would be nice if Invision gave us the option to do it either way, but they don't unfortunately.

It does help to know how to move around faster using keyboards tips--thanks!

Regarding the letter to outline what MC needs in a mayor, I would be glad to proof it. I would suggest perhaps emailing it rather than doing it in the mb.

Sorry guys, I am running a little behind on the news! I had a long weekend, and did a whole lot of relaxing. I will try to get caught up tonight or tomorrow.

Sorry its been a little quiet around here... I got picked for jury duty, so I haven't been able to get the board updated like I usually would. I should be done tomorrow.
