As some of you have experienced, we have been having ongoing technical problems with the message boards.

In a word, we've used this system long enough -- and boy, has it been used! -- that it has basically aged out of its own usefulness, and is breaking down under the strain of trying to keep working.

So, we are going to start the process of creating and running a new board system today.

What does that mean for you?
We may be slower to answer here and to all the things in general because we are working on this, and it's a big job.

You may still run into errors using this board: we are sorry for that, but please don't send email or post notices about problems with this board, because, again, we can't fix it. All we can do now is create and implement a new system, and that's going to take the time it takes.

Once we have the new system ready to go, we will be archiving this one so that no one can post here anymore, but everyone can still read through the archive. Staff and volunteers will also still be able to use it to access your posting history if you have used the same handle, email address or IP. We will link the archives of this board a few places clearly.

If you'd like a fresh start here on the boards once we have the new system, by all means, make one! Maybe it's time to pick a new handle (and for the love of Pete, try and make it something you like that's positive and really about you, rather than something with "scared" in the title or that references your boyfriend or girlfriend). Maybe you have a history on the boards of pushing limits or being very stuck in something: this can be a way to start fresh with things like that, too. Just something to think about. [Smile]

We may have some down time where we have to shut down the site for a few minutes or hours, or times when neither the old board nor the new board are live while we finish. We thank you in advance for your patience with any of that!
