Pass the coffee.

    I thought I would give us a place where we can happen to run into each other.  Commence.

      It was already commenced! 

       

      Twice!

       

      Although it is hard to tell, those are links to other RWOL "I am here, are you here?" threads.

       

      Welcome to RA.

        And I missed it?  :*(

          I'm here.  Just transfered my running log.  I hope RWOL eventually settles into something bearable, but it isn'at for now, so ... here I am.

            Check the "New to RA" thread on the Running 101 board.

              That was one of the two things I linked above, but I got too fancy with my link names.  Lo siento mucho.

               

                Oops! I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize they were links. Blush

                    Hi, guys.  Thought of checking how many of us have moved.  Not many, I see.

                    Format not much different, though. Better smileys, though. Joking

                          For those of us clearly ignorant of RWOL, what happened to cause the exodus?  For me back a few years ago I left Coolrunning because Active bought them and they were going to start charging money and I thought it was a total debacle.  Besides, when I got over here I liked it a LOT better anyway.  Did something like this happen at RW?

                          We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.

                            Reasons may vary but two biggies recently were a major reformatting that a lot of people didn't like and a huge deluge of spam threads that RWOL mods/devs either couldn't or wouldn't deal with.

                              Those were the two big reasons.

                               

                              HOWEVER.... RWOL is also in the process of dumping their old log (built by The Great and Powerful eric) in favor of training peaks.  So when the "where else can we go?" question was floated, RA became a natural answer because of the Mack Daddy log.

                               

                                That explains a lot.  I've tried TP, and I find it to be a total user experience disaster.  And as you say, what the Great and Powerful eric has built pretty well rocks.
