TMC is back!

Postby CakeBoy » Sat Jun 06, 2015 12:32 am

People are beginning to notice that we are indeed live again with a new look and some snazzy banners. There are a few technical bits still being attended to before we officially relaunch. In the mean time, the team would like to thank Steve massively. I am sure you will have realised by now that Steve has kindly saved TMC and provided a new home to the community. Hopefully he will share a few words with us once everything is fully up and running.

It is great to see TMC back :D A huge thank you to Steve for hosting the new site and updating the software and to CakeBoy for using his contacts and considerable diplomatic skills in arranging this. We hope everyone likes the new, modern, minimalist look of the site as much as we do 8) We hope you will pop in soon to let us know what you think.

Fantastic news

I have been checking back for days looking to see if there was any life

The great thing about TMC back in the day was the mix of professionals and fanatics. It would be great to get some fresh input from the pros again.

And there was me thinking it was only ever populated by loonantics, some of whom also got paid! Hopefully the mix will return shortly as you say Chris :)

Yah - I'd slowly and subconsciously given up on TMC, as there never seemed to be much new, and any time I did post nobody really came back.

If this means the forum starts to wake from its slumbers and become the fun and engaging place it used to be, then ... GREAT!

It can come back to life but its not going to be overnight. Having Steve and his minions(!) posting is a great start.

I am just happy its back. There is a huge amount of good quality information hidden here amongst the odd bits of humor and general confusion!

Arena tour MK Swing ? I have a heavy rider

Yes I agree that this has been slumbering, but we are all going to have to make a concerted effort to spring it back into life. I know I miss the forum and am having more and more problems with 140 character discussions. I think there is space for both, and hope you all start participating again.

Jelly babies, no yellow ones.
Champagne and strawberries
Couple of decent malts
A golden slayer and a couple of bags of Steve's finest.
Nothing pink, or cakey :-P
That should do it. Simple tastes me...!

Now where did I put my sequined spandex trousers????
This week I are feeling sleepy!

It would be interesting to develop the European aspect of the site - maybe try and get some sign-ups from Barista Guild members. Back in the day it was interesting to have input from the likes of Joey(?) and others.
