We are doing a software security upgrade.

As you can see there is lots of formatting that has been lost. This will cause outages from time to time. Please be patient with us.

As you can probably see by now, this was a major software revision upgrade (unlike the previous upgrades that have been relatively minor revisions). We are having some functionality issues that will need attention. Mike and the admin staff are continuing to work through them, but there appear to be more of them than we originally anticipated. So... please continue to bear with us for the next few days as we work to identify and bring these features and functions back up to full functioning status.

Mike,

I know you are working hard on the upgrade. I'm not sure how you are able to find all the glitches, but I've come across one that I thought I should share with you. When I click on "reply", the response window comes up (of course) but it is a gazzillion spaces long. So I just type my entire response in one line. When it is posted, all is well. Just thought I'd mention it.

Thanks Chris, we're noticing a big difference between what members might see using Internet Explorer and those using FireFox. Right now, FireFox is doing a much better job, but we're working fast and furious to fix all the irritating things.

Just an update. As you can see, we took a step back to look at the overall picture. Last night we were fast and furiously trying to do the fixes... and found out it would be best to start over with the Look 'n Feel and to just keep patching. So, although what you're seeing right now is NOT what you are used to seeing, it will be repaired as soon as possible. In the meantime, keep on posting and enjoying yourselves.

And if you get lonesome for our old look and feel, visit the Home Page. It's still there, like always.

We were able to get our “Look N Feel” back, but some Windows IE users have reported problems. So as you can see we went back to the default.

We are working hard to find the conflict. So, you will see the screens change back and forth while we test and track down the pesky errors.

It’s like trying to rebuild an engine while the car is in a race. Pit stops just don’t give enough time.

We have about a dozen Moderators with all sorts of computers and browsers who are giving me feed back, so we probably are seeing what you see plus more as the functionality screens some times break.

I appreciate all your patience and understanding.

I don't envy you this job. Another board I follow regularly went through a similar upgrade - and gave up in favor of a "major redesign at a future date". Basically - customizing this stuff can byte you in the end when an upgrade breaks the customizations.

Anyway - don't worry, I doubt you'll loose any posters for something as silly as "formatting".

Thanks for the hard work!

-Kyle
