Posted Thu Jul 12, 2007, 6:04pm Subject: The New Espresso Machine Modifications and Restorations Forum
Hey folks. Today's the day we launch and restructure some of the forums here on CoffeeGeek, in the espresso section.
The Espresso Forum "Machines and Grinders" is by far and away the most popular forum on CoffeeGeek, and has become so huge that it's almost unwieldy. As a result, The "Machines and Grinders" forum has been renamed to "Pump Espresso Machines" and can still be found at it's normal url.
This forum is specifically for any discussions on espresso machine modifications or restorations. You're not forced to post your machine mods here - you can post them in the Lever Espresso Machines forum, or the Pump Espresso machines forum, or if it's a grinder mod, in the new Espresso Grinders forum. But I do ask that you do not crosspost - pick the forum where you feel your post is most suited, and roll with that.
Also, I am in the midst of moving some threads from the original Machines and Grinders forums into these new forums, but I need your help.
Please take a moment to post a list of threads from the Machines and Grindersl forum (now named Pump Espresso Machines) that you think should be moved to this forum. You can't reply to this Announcement, but I am starting a new thread in this forum where you can reply and provide links to the threads you think should be moved into the Lever Espresso Machines forum.
When you post, please provide the full url starting the thread in question, one per line. Post as many as you want.
