DISCUSSION BOARD MAINTENANCE STARTING MONDAY!

Postby bruce » Sat Jul 29, 2006 10:00 am

Starting at midnight on Sunday, this discussion board will be going down! This discussion group software has been giving us trouble as I think we have exceeded it's capability, so we are changing discussion group software. I've been wanting to do this for a long time...and I've been warning, but now we are finally going to get this done! Yeah! We will make EVERY attempt to make this conversion painless and we sincerely HOPE to bring over all user information for logins and passwords, posts, etc. This is all new ground for us, so no guarantees, but we will do our best! Keep checking this url (http://www.everythingdulcimer.com/discussion/) and when it's back up, it will be obvious. I'm hoping this takes 2-3 days, but it could take as much as a week. Thanks so much for your patience. If the transition is smooth, I think everyone will be pleased with the end result. Bruce

When finished, will people have access to old info, threads, etc. in the form of an archive? Or will the entire board be starting from ground zero... info and all?

Mizzgnomer, the newsletter I got said just the discussion board will be down, everything else will be intact. I'm assuming that if you bookmark the chat, it'll still work. Bruce... thanks for the heads up ... keeping my fingers crossed Razz

Bruce, best of luck on the forums upgrade. As an Admin for a Flight Simulator website, I know the effort put into keeping forums like this up and going along with the periodic upgrades. See ya on the other side! Willy
