You have a lot of love for this forum and you are not afriad to show it.
I went to the little box that says show topics for the last 20 days. I clicked on it and came to a place that says ALL topics.
Now, that may have happened because I am a member and this darned thing is able to recognize that.
I will try to find out whether or not it is a fluke that you could not get to the archives. As you say, there is a lot of wisedom there.
Truly Muldoon, I am convinced that MS is not trying to make a huge divide between members and guests. Some guys treasure their privacy and the members forum give them a more secure place to be. But MS would not want to make the site nearly useless for the quests and visitors.
I'll look into it and get back to you asap.
Peace to you!
