For those of you who haven't looked at the Announcements...
George has given the forum over to me.  I have added Phishisgroovin as a second admin, and Lithicbeads and Hummingbirdstones are now both Global Moderators.

We will be making some changes here and there to hopefully make your forum experience bright and sunny!  We are looking into cheaper hosting service for the forum, and if we find a cheaper host we will be doing a move.  Right now we pay more a month here to keep things ad free and purchase disk space than some forums pay for almost a half of a year with unlimited disk space for images.  As soon as we find ourselves something suitable, we will let you know.  SMFforfree is not free.  You pay to keep it ad free, you pay for image storing space, and you have to pay for features as important as a database backup.   bricks  That said, we are on the hunt.

Stay tuned for further details and information!

Thank you for taking this on. I learn a lot from this site and would hate if it disappeared.

The new server is up.
The backup here is in progress and anything posted after 11AM Central time today to this forum will not be in the backup and will be lost once the forum has moved.
If you wish to start new topics/postings, go to the new site, grab a membership and post.

I see that the other forum has been running for some time now. Are you going to be able to merge the two smf forums? Are the existing user accounts here going to transfer over to the new forum or do we all have to start over and register again on the new forum?

This forum will be merged in as a subforum according to Randy.
To my knowledge if you have a current membership here, it will transfer.  You can go in ahead of the transfer and create a membership, or you can wait.
Randy knows far more of the particular details of the merger than I do.  He's been handling the code and server ends of things.  I've been handling memberships, building boards and subforums, and very basic things like answering questions.   yes

I do highly suggest going over there and kicking the tires and taking it for a test drive before the merger is final.  This way if there are any weird quirks, or flukes of nature we can get them ironed out ahead of time.
