Title: The Old Thyme Machines Forum has Closed
Post by: The Wizard on 29 September 2018, 22:08:05
The Thyme Machines forum ceased to exist on Wednesday 26 September 2018 at about 15:30 hours. There were over 141,000 posts (over 25% were by Dawn and Gaz), and over 2GB of attachments to the forum.

The Thyme Machines Facebook Group is closed group that was started by ex-thyme machines forum administrators, Gaz (DragonLord) and Lucy (Loopylass). Only members of the Thyme Machines forum can join the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2146406898950614/, you will need to provide your forum name.

Iíve added the board ĎThyme Machines Forumí, for those of you that donít do Facebook. The forum is not as good as the old Thyme Machines forum, but it is still usable.

The Ideas R Us Software forum is publicly available for anyone to see whatís posted, unlike the Thyme Machines forum where you had to register before you could see anything, and be an Approved Member before you could see all the forum posts.

You only need to join/register if you want to post or reply to something or someone.

Thank you Ian.  It will give quite a few of us a chance to communicate and share files if we wish.  I have a whole raft of freebies that were on TG.  Do you think it would be worth uploading some to this forum for members to download?

No problem Hazel.

You can upload some files if you want to Mary, all I have to do is to create a category for them, when I thought of a name for it  ;D .

Hello Ian and Old Thyme friends,

I have only recently returned home only to hear the sad news about Thyme Graphics.  I was at a loss hearing this because I suddenly found I'd lost contact with quite a few friends who have been helping and advising me on how to get the best from my SB.

Fortunately, I did find a reference to Mary P. and was able to learn about your forum.  Well, here I am and I hope to rekindle the contacts in order that I can continue learning and progressing with my lovely SB.

All the best

Mike

Hi Hazel, good to see you here.   We are a bit thin on the ground at the moment but it is early days.  I shall be posting some freebies as per usual.

Hello Mike

There are about at least 7 of us from the old Thyme Machines forums, Dawn (Thyme) and Gaz (Dragon Lord) are here. The Thyme Machines Facebook group has currently 102 members, and a lot of the names I don't recoginise.

If any questions posted on here can't be answered, I'll post them on the Thyme Machines Facebook page, and someone should be able to answer them.


Ian

Hello Ian,

thank you for that.  I don't use FB so wouldn't know what is going on over there.

Best Wishes

Mike

It's difficult to search Facebook pages, so it's not much good for sharing files, and makes technical support more difficult.
 
There's not much going on in the Facebook group at the moment, so here's a brief summary: -

Someone asking for help who purchased a Silver Bullet 18-months ago and it's still in the box! I thought it was only Brother ScanNCut owners who did that.

  • A reminder that blades, mats and accessories are still stocked by Dawn and Tony
  • A number of messages about how sad they were to hear about Dawn's illness, and wishing her well
  • Help about Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) from Sandra in Spain via her YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC79-vHDfB3Bi6vrkBL2f_ig

Thanks Ian for the update.  The TG forum was very under used before its demise.  I guess most of us had learned much of what we needed to know.

Ian would it be out of order to suggest they have the occasional look for files here?  Whilst I have only added a few so as not to crowd the forum and most of them have already been posted on the old TG site as freebies, I do have plenty more I could upload.  I don't want to create a lot of work for you though.

I did intend to post a link on the Facebook group page Mary.
 
I've moved the forum to another server, and I'm still testing it to make sure everything is alright.

the FB group was really set up just for people to keep in contact and to ask the odd question,  like those that we know but it just escapes us when we need it ;)
sadly there is no easy way to filter only old forum members

Hi Gaz,

If you do contact the old team on FB then I would be grateful if you could pass on my best wishes, and heartfelt thanks, to all those lovely people who've helped me with queries about my SB over the years.  That includes you!

cheers

Mike
