I used my regular bookmark to get to the site.. the one to the fishing forums .. and all I get is a corporate incentives error page... hope others try just going to the main page instead of a forum bookmark cause I wondered for a minute if something was wrong...

(ok.. this maybe should be in not related to fishing but...)

First off, I moved this to unrelated, I hope you don't mind.

And yes, you are right. The old main forum page does not exist anymore. That Corporate Incentives error is one of my servers that spits out a 404 error (page missing). It used to be Minnesota-Fishing-Forums. The forum that is split into the individual forums is http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf (without the s after forums).

To make a long story short, the forum, when there were only 3 forums, was located at http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf. The search engines slurped up a bunch of those pages. About 8 months ago, I decided to put togehter the page that displyed all the forums and the top 5 posts from all the forums. The problem with that was that the old link(http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf) still carried a lot of weight in the search engines and there were references to that page. In fact, it was popping up as a secondary link after most of our returns. When you clicked on that link, it did a redirect to the (s) page. I decided to nix the http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forums.taf page because it carried no weight and was not even showing up in the returns. So now, the whole forum including the main page are all under the http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf page. Is this making sense?

Anyway, the way it breaks down now is...

http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=1
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=2
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=3
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=4
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=5
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=6
http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=7


http://myfishingpals.com/Minnesota-Fishing-Forum.taf?ForumNumber=9

All of them without the s. Easier to manage, easier to sort, better for the search engines.

By the way, sportsnut218...

Did you know the image in your signature file displays as a broken icon? When I try loading it, it says I don't have permission to view it. It has been this way for months. I show it is located here... http://www.clickonthese.com/FishingPictures/fishingwork.jpg
