Thank you, John, for having developed and upheld these timeless and well designed forums in their present form for so long.

When they are lost, swept away by the tide of the current contemporary forum design which will hopefully pass again, some of us shall wish we were back in this golden time.

I am sure you know that those of us not welcoming the changes to be, and what we sincerely see as fundamentally inferior in terms of functionality and efficiency as well as in overall design, are the defenders of your efforts, then and now.

And as you know, the very same we have regularly, as committed forum members, taken the time and effort to try to help improve what were real shortcomings, sometimes possible, sometimes impossible to mend.

And I am sure you know that we appreciate your efforts right now, under the conditions that you know and we do not.

And as you know and we know, those that see us as attackers of progress, and worse, are actually the relentless and incessant attackers of your past and present efforts.

The last part grieves me most.

I wished this to be said before the whole matter is something in the past.

Me too.

Paz

Or, _Paz_ as I'll be known in the new forums, should I participate, because Paz is already taken.

You can fix that by signing-in to the account that now uses "Paz" as a Screen name and changing it to something else.

Wait a little while, and then sign in to your Adobe ID account and enter "Paz" as your screen name there

Ha! It seems that Paz is the login name and not being my 'official' Adobe ID, (P. Boone), which now has _Paz_ as the screen name, Paz does not have a screen name that can be shown.

Confused yet? ;)

I guess I'll wait it out.

It is in your P.Boone account that you should change the Screen name to "Paz" if that's the one with which you will access the New Forums.

You also need to "associate the Accounts" between your account for this Forum and the Adobe ID Account.

>It is your P. Boone account

Yes, but it won't take, because I already have Paz as a user name. My guess is that all unmoved accounts will cease to exist. Then I should be able to change my screen name to plain old Paz.

>You also need to 'Associate the Accounts'

What? Must have missed that. I have no idea what that means. I kind of think I'll wait it out and see what happens. If I can't get into the 'New' forums, I'm not sure it will be any great loss.

At any rate, this thread is about recognizing John's contributions, which have been considerable. As I see it, the highly customized, clean appearance we have enjoyed these many years has been to a great extent the result of his efforts and I commend him.

John, I know that you know that we know, and that you know who we are and how many. However, I agree that we should say it clearly and loudly before this dream we have been dreaming vanishes.

Thank you.

Claudio, from this remote and long corner of the world.
