Good Morning To All! I hope your holiday is going fantastic on this Christmas morning!

I was going to wait for Chaz to make an announcement, but I didn't want to push you all back any further! The great news is... me and my family are now part of Chazhound! Karl and Lynne were gracious enough to let us take over the helm of this wonderful community! :hail:

So, now your asking:

What does this mean for me?
What does this mean for Chazhound?

Well, I'm sure there are many more questions, but those came to me first! Rest assured that the family, community aspect of Chazhound is very important to me and I don't want to drastically change the place you have all come to know and love! So while there will be some cosmetic changes and some cool new toys, for right now, let's just say the only thing that changed is the man behind the curtain.

Stay tuned for more! Now it's time for me to go play Santa!

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Ugh, please no. There are a lot of forums out there with lots of bells and whistles, so much so that they have become a HUGE bother. Heck, I stopped going to those forums.

IMO... "cool new toys" are a hassle and a bother. I love this forum because it relies on its members, not it's features to make it great.

LOL all I want for Xmas is little to no change of Chaz pls. (unless you are getting rid of the annoying ads)

I too love this forum because it doesn't have a bazillion extras. Its streamlined and simple.

Sold is not good news.

I am on the "keep it the same" bandwagon.

I feel the presence of the Acmepet shadow. Let's hope this does not follow the same dead end path that great place did once it was sold.....

Well, we've always prided ourselves on bucking the trends, so let's continue being who we are and doing what we do best . . . being a tight-knit, ever-growing family :)

I come and go here but have liked the site for years. I've particularly liked reading your advice, Redyre. If things start to go sour here, it would be nice to have a way to stay in touch.

Something for everyone to remember...

CHILL OUT (and have some faith)! :D

We've got a bigger server. We won't have to deal with the dumping glitches and downtime and lag like we used to, because now we've got a way to handle all the traffic Chazhound attracts. We mods are still here. We know how you all feel about change of any sort and MeatyTreats is being very open with wanting to do the best for the forum and not turning it into GlobalPaw.

Give it a chance before you start abandoning ship.

Im still not happy about the change I will say that Im kinda worried I know we have the mods but at the same time we now have a new owner. I hope we stay as close to the same as possible I have been here since I was 16. Whenever things were going bad and still do I know I can come here and its still the same old chaz.

But until this goes full fledge I will still be leary

If you have as much confidence as you say in the new regime, you will allow all who wish to express their feelings, even if they are not so rah-rah about the change.

Up to now, everyone on this board has always had the chance to express how they feel about anything (as long as what they were saying wasn't outright indecent or abusive). I hope that isn't going to change.

If we are a little sad, or apprehensive, we should be able to voice how we feel.
