I'm an old bastard and I like my coffee in the morning. I like my coffee cup where I left it, the coffee pot in the same place on the counter, the coffee filters in the right level of the right cabinet. I like the creamer left next to the coffee pot. Now, someone went and rearranged the kitchen. Hell, it doesn't even look like the same house any more. And they went and hid the coffee to boot. I might just try the coffee shop across the street.

I seem to have less problems at home (Mac G5/ OS X/ Safari/ cable modem)than I do at work (WinTel box through a Barracuda network filter - probably the culprit). But who's got time when they're home - that's when I'm busy.

Honestly, I am so frustrated trying to get from point A to point B I may just come back in a few weeks and see if things are any better then.

There's no SEARCH function in any section other than the Forums. If I wanted to lookup "Dainese" to see if you reviewed a jacket, for example, I'd be screwed. All that wonderful content and no way to access it...
We're working on that, guys! There are literally hundreds of tweaks we're making to MO 2.0 that are going to address many of the issues you are having.

As for the differentiation between levels of members in the Forum, it's like this:

Founding Member: Was at one point a MO subscriber.
Premium Founding Member: Was a current MO subscriber at the time of MO 2 launch.
Premium Member: Someone who subscribed post-MO 2 launch.

Past subscribers (Founding Members) receive a Founding Member tag/medallion, a large avatar, a signature image, a custom user title and a private storage space where they can store up to 500 messages.

Existing subscribers (whether Premium Founding Member or Premium Member) get the all the stuff above plus a bunch of other goodies:

- Unique MO Member Name
- Higher res pics and video
- Exclusive content features
- MO vendor and merchandise discounts
- MO newsletter with special offers
- Premium Member tag
- Premium Member forum access
- Soon, a motorcycle.com email address

The only difference in status between a Premium Founding Member and a Premium Member is that a non-Founding reader doesn't get the Founding Member forum tag.

As for the problems some of you are having with your forum status, I've passed these issues on so they can be resolved as soon as possible.

Sorry for this tardy response, but rest assured it's only because we've got our hands full while we address the major issues with the site. Hang in there! -Kevin

Regarding the forum status of some of you, I've been advised to direct you to the Contact Us link at the bottom-right corner of every MO editorial page. That way each issue can be logged so we can better address your individual concerns. I've also pointed our ace forum tech head, Steve, in the direction of this thread.

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this transitional period.

"Premium Founding Member: Was a current MO subscriber at the time of MO 2 launch." This is me - I subscribed a few weeks before the MO 2.0 launch, but it lists me as a "Founding Member", so I don't have access to the high res photos, etc. I guess I'll do the "Contact Us" thing in case there is an admin glitch with my account status.

Thanks;

But yeah I agree with the rest of it. We should have news topics in chronological order so we can all fight in the same room.
That works slightly acceptably - until new "Old Topics" are brought online; then you're left with 27 pages of "New" Topics.................
