Forum update pending
« on: February 20, 2015, 10:31:32 AM »
The version of forum software that we are operating is out of date and no longer supported. There are updates available that will improve performance and offer better internet safety and virus protection.

In order to implement these, the forum will need to be down for a couple of hours.  It will be going offline at 2:00PM (EDST) and should be back up by 4:00PM (EDST).

Please do not try to logon after 2:00PM and before 4:00PM (EDST) today.

Thank you

Please log out now. I need to back up the database before I apply the update and I cannot do that while you are online.

Thank you

The update is complete. We have lost the Chat room. It was a third-party add in and was very vulnerable.

We have new functionality that gives us something like the "like" button in Facebook. If you look under your name, you will +/- signs, so you can indicate you like (+) a post.

Hi Susan...thanks for all your work!  I am not seeing the +/-. I see an applaud/smite under the member who created the post. (I am  using a smart phone right now so I am not sure if this is the reason)

Hi Mindy,

Look under your profile pic, then below the # of posts. It should something like:

Karma: +/-

Works great, too! :)

Got it but I click "applaud" and your "+" number goes up!

Hmmm, interesting.  The Case of the Missing Karma

would have made a great Nancy Drew book.

I think there's a clue in there. Let me see if I can find my magnifying glass...

Well, Karma is gone for good. It wasn't stable enough and it wasn't performing as anticipated. :(

I'll keep scanning the internet for an add-in that gives "likeability" to posts functionality. :)
