Topic: New Forum Coming Soon  Number of Responses: 0

Hi Everyone.

As you are aware we have upgraded the FEGA web site and very soon we will be updating the FEGA forum to the V-Bulletin software. Again we have Bill Gamradt to thank for this. We've been working hard behind the scenes setting it up and testing it.

This will be in line with all the other forums out there and have a lot of features that other forums provide.

You will be able to upload photos directly from your computer as well as your web site/photo hosting service.

This is going to be a great feature for those that are computer challenged because you can load a photo directly from your computer and the forum will automatically crunch it down to a manageable size. No special programs required.

The exciting part about this is that it makes it real easy to set up your web page (Regular members or FEGA Master Engraver) on the FEGA web site and add photos to it. Full instructions will be available on the new forum when it goes live.

So keep an eye out for the change..........You will have to register again on the new forum because we can't utilize your existing information. So please take the time to re-register and post. You can use all your old "log-In" information to register if you want..............or you can use a new name and log-in information. All I ask is that you please sign up with your real name if possible. That way we know who everyone is. It's not compulsory but would be nice.

Rex and Barry will be the moderators so be gentle on them because they haven't done it before. The new forum will be a work in progress so any problems or hassles let the moderators know about it and it'll be fixed as best we can. Undoubtedly there will be a few initial bugs in the system.

So watch this space :-) :-)

Topic: New FEGA Web Site  Number of Responses: 6

Hi Everyone

As you may have noticed...............the web site has changed. And for the better!!!

It has new graphics/photos and all the pages have been completely rewritten. You should also find that the navigation is a lot better and things are a lot easier to find.

There are several changes to the way you can upload photos onto your members page

Forgotten your password information when you log in................There is a new look log in box that has a button for those that have forgotten their password information. The web site will automatically send you an e-mail reminder if you follow the steps correctly. Try it out

Speaking of which...................e-mails. Most members change their e-mail addresses from time to time. Approximately 80% of your e-mail addresses on our data base are wrong. So please take the time to update your contact information in the "your account" section.

If you find any bugs or things not working properly, please contact Rex or myself (or post on this forum) so we can make the necessary fixes and changes.

We owe FEGA member Bill Gamradt a huge round of applause for this. He has taken on, and done, what the professionals wouldn't touch. Not only is the front end (what you see) completely revamped but also the back end (what you can't see) so that the administration of the web site is vastly improved.

Topic: W. W. Marston engraved cup, inscription, 1862 for sale  Number of Responses: 4

I am selling a silver presentation cup given to William Walker Marston by his workmen, Dec. 2nd, 1862. Most likely, the occassion of his 40th birthday. The cup will be auctioned on ebay beginning Sunday night, February 5th, 2006. The auction will end February 12th, 2006 around 9:00 PM EST. The cup features and inscription and gun style floral engraving. For those unfamiliar with Marston he is best known as a maker of percussion pistols. He was involved in at least 9 different companies throughout his career. This cup is a one of a kind collector's item for the gun engraving enthusiast, or Civil War era gun maker collector. I will post a close up of the engraved section. A full description and other pics will appear on ebay. Thanks, C.H.

Topic: The Engraver  Number of Responses: 1

I received my new copy of The Engraver yesterday and once again (sounds like a broken record) it is another outstanding issue. Great articles and a wonderful tribute to Rene Delcour in the form of an email from RL Wilson to Phil Grifnee. Sure wish I had had the chance to meet Rene! Absolutely Well Done Andrew!

PS...for those of you too young to know what a record is it is round, flat and thin and way earlier than dvds.
