Ok everyone, there will be an upgrade going through tonight.  Please be patient if you're unable to access the board at times.

We've worked out a few things, and I will be doing an upgrade to the latest available version of the board (not quite the total overhaul we were originally planning).

The default skin will be the only one available for a while this evening, but I will change that as soon as possible.

Also, don't worry: Jim has a backup of the board in case things go completely wonky.  They haven't on me yet, but anything is possible!
I fully believe that not everyone is meant to see things; some things you just aren't meant to know.

We appear to have hit a snag once again.

Patience is a virtue.  (albeit one I'm starting to lose control of)

No worries :no:

People know the board upgrade is in the works so take it slow and don't set any deadlines for yourself or worry about giving people advanced notice ... it will get done when it's done. :yes:

Just drop the obligatory "sorry for any inconvenience" in the first post on the new board and yer good to go :D

Also thanxz for all the time and effort :yes:

Siguie, Just wanted you to know publicly that we appreciate your guidance in the background with all of this.

No timeline on when it will get done... but it will get done as soon as possible.

I think I'm going to have to hire someone to do it... so can't do it this month. I may try some additional advertising here to raise funds. There are a few other things I want to do as well with ParanormalSoup. So should have the ball rolling next month. For now I'm going to work on getting some additional help to protect this board and keep it flowing. That announcement coming soon.

Hey Jim, regarding funding sources take a look at the Amazon Associates Program. It wont be a sudden influx of monies BUT it is very helpful :yes: It doesn't add any costs to orders so forum members can order products they would buy normally and jus use your associates ID and it will automagically sends a few percent your way. :yes:

Who buys what is not part of the logs :no: so there are no privacy concerns PLUS you can post associate links to anything that you recommend for ghost hunting in forum threads so visitors can also add to site funds :)

My associate account pays for my public play sites and has managed to cover expenses for the past few years. It's free to join, and doesn't cost anybody anything to use {except Amazon}. Also the big money comes in from Christmas orders ... atleast for me it has.

Just wanted to throw this out there :D

Thank you Siguie.... I used to try an amazon book store but didn't have much luck. But I do like where I could post associate links to things that I recommend for ghost hunting, and do it in forum threads. ..........I'll look into that.  :)
