!!! Important Announcement !!!
« on: September 13, 2014, 05:41:06 am »
Dear Friends,

With the continuing technical problems we've had with this board and the inability of the software creators to supply solutions, I've been thinking about moving to different software. We still have those persistent login in failures from time to time and now the email system has started to fail as well. I've installed a new system at a different URL and I'd like you to try it out.

The plus side: It's written in the same code (ASP.NET) that the main site is written in which means that we'll be able to integrate the message board with the main site. That means you won't have to have one set of login credentials for the board and one for the site. It will all be integrated together.

The down side: I probably will not be able to export posts here to the new board. That may have to be done manually, if at all. I will, of course, move the more important ones; the filmographies and such.

I'm hoping that this will cure some of the problems we've had. This is just set up as a trial basis right now to give everyone a chance to play with it and tell me what they think. Better? Worse? Like it? Don't like it? Whatever!

The new board is at http://toonscoop.com/forum/Forum.aspx. Don't get used to that ... if this works out, we'll port everything back over here. But sign up, try it out, play with it a bit ... let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Patrick

This is confusing......does this mean we can't use this board anymore?

No, no! This board is still active. We're just experimenting with another version in case we decide to go in that direction.

I'm liking the new software from looking at it. May have to sign up and play around with it later.

If we do move however, could you please give us some time to move our posts if you can't do this automatically? Thanks!

Yes. Don't worry ... this won't be a sudden thing. I'll give everyone plenty of notice.

It does appear so. I'm still playing with it myself. This is something I may have to get rid of because of the potential for abuse, but let's play around with it and see what happens.

I'm thinking screenshots.  The system we have now works fine, though.
