    We're Making Some Changes....Board Will Be Down!

    In case you missed the announcement I put in all the forums, here it is again.

    Hello,

    We're going to be making some rather extensive changes to the forum very soon, and it will require the forum to be closed down for a period of time while we move a lot of things around.

    We're not exactly sure the timeframe of how long it will take to make the changes, but it could take a whole day, so just keep that in mind. You obviously won't be able to check private messages during that time either.

    Just wanted to give you heads up so you are not shocked when you see the forum down. We aren't going anywhere, the board is coming back, and we're hoping the forum changes are for the better.

    The board will be going down on Friday 7/7, at 1:30 PM Pacific Time and will be back up as soon as all the changes are in place. It could be later that night, or it could be sometime Saturday. So just be patient.

    OMG a whole day?? Hope it's not on a workday otherwise I'm gonna have to actually get some work done!

    Does this p'raps have anything to do with a certain reunion or announcement of a certain band we all know and love? And their website will happen to be updated at the same time coincidentally of course. J/K!

    Wow this was posted in all the forums yet I still managed to miss it.

    Probably be over the weekend, since it's quieter. Might happen sometime tomorrow afternoon, I am not sure yet.

    No just some forum changes that needed to be made for organizational purposes and hopefully to encourage some better discussions and get rid of dead forums.

    The main changes are to the VH forums, so hopefully it will encourage better discussion about the band, we'll see. That's a pretty hard ticket these days. I don't think any of us are quite sure how everyone is going to react to them, but might as well try it and find out.

    Thanks for the positive words, always makes me feel better about dealing with the unpleasant aspects of running the place.

    It's a wonderful site even with the unpleasantness. You do a great job that is appreciated more than you will ever know. Glad to know this will be on a weekend since as JC mentioned, I'd have to get more work done if it was during the week. Keep up the awesome work!

    In advance, thanks Brett. Great job! It looks excellent!
    Can we have one of those "Coming Soon" pages like the official website?

    Seriously, thanks for all you do.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
