Now, I probably do not know many if any of you. I do not post at "the other site" (it's okay to just say CC in reference to it), nor do I even go there to read articles or posts.

I do that because I write most of the articles here and I don't want my words to be influenced by anything I see over there. Naturally, that also means I do NOT follow any CC "politics" or know who is who in the forums over there. I was told someone named Mach had left and one of my staff people suggested I invite him to come here. He graciously accepted.

The advantage here is that you are all used to how the boards work, but if you have any technical problems just send me a private message. And lastly, I will not be hovering here, I am sure you all already have good forum etiquette so that part is all up to you.

I just want to mention that we have another area for non-cruise related posts called "chit-chat" here: Chit - Chat for Cruisers - CruiseMates Cruise Community and Forums

We understand people talk, so feel free to chat away here within your posts in the Carnival board - you Crazies you. But we also hope you will be helpful to our other readers who come in looking for honest cruise advice.

That's it - see you on the boards. By the way - we have some of our people on Breeze right now if you want to read their adventures just look for the sticky at the top of the Carnival section.

Thanks so much for the welcome, Paul!

I'm sure we'll be seeing more Crazies here in the near future. You'll learn to enjoy these folks just as I have... these kids are the cream of the crop and a joy to sail with!!!

I can offer whatever it takes to make you happy -

How about a wake up call?

Want me to fill your ice bucket?

Have you seen the pillow menu?

Default I am here!!

Hello all my Crazie friends. anybody know how to add this thread to my CP so that I can bring it up that way. I am really having a hard time getting to know this program.

by the way I added MS. In front of my name for this site.

Looking forward to things getting back to normal, if of course a group of Crazies can be normal.

SIP is too early for me...especially since we're going to see Jimmy Buffett tomorrow night (Fins Up!), but I may catch you all at SAWP!

Well, this is just flat great! So glad to see so many Crazies here! I'm hoping we'll get the whole gang onboard and life will be good again!!

Rob, I'd really appreciate it if you'd start the SIP/SAWP thread Sunday... kinda like tradition...

Smile, folks... it's only gonna get better!!!

Howdy, Teresa!!!

Thanks so much for comin' over to join us!

You have no idea how much I've missed everyone but I simply couldn't continue to post over at CC because of the way that our folks were being treated by the management there.

Don't get me wrong, there were no overt threats but the way she allowed our group to be publicly batter by the cretins was more than I could stand.

I think we're good here... if you know of any of the Crazies who haven't heard about the move please let them know.

Not a problem, Rob! We'll keep SIP in the same thread... like always!

I'll be glad to collect sail away guesses until someone else steps up!!

Hi everyone! Workday is over.. it's happy hours!

Mach, it would probably be better if we started the SIP & SAWP threads in the Chit Chat thread. Instead of having such a long one on the Carnival board??

It's easy to find y'all, in the menu click on "message boards", then on "People" then on "Chit Chat" ...E Z!

so glad to see you posting again!

I thought about that quite a bit, really. What I'm thinkin' is a new thread every SIP/SWAP rather than a huge one that runs continuiously... that needs to be over at chat and I can't wait to see that get goin'!!!
