Forum Updates and Planned Maintenance

Here’s a quick update regarding a couple of changes that we have made on the Chronocentric forums, as well as a “heads up” regarding some maintenance planned for this coming Thursday evening (Eastern time) / Friday morning (in Europe).

Changes in the Forums. As some of you have noticed, we have changed some features of the forums over the last couple of days, in response to some misconduct on the forums. For the record, there was no hacking of accounts, but we did have bad guys (or probably one bad guy) using the names of some of our regular contributors.

Some of the changes are as follows:

  • Email addresses will only be visible to our registered users (i.e., those users who have registered by creating profiles). So if you want to post a For Sale or Want to Buy message, and you want people to have your email address, then you should either register (create a profile) or include your email address in the body of the message.
  • Only registered users will be able to use HTML in their postings.

Scheduled Maintenance. Apart from these changes, we will be doing some scheduled maintenance on the forums, late Thursday evening (Eastern time, here in the US) / early Friday morning (in Europe). While we hope that there will be no interruptions in our service, please plan accordingly. For example, if there are photos, messages, or other information that you want – on the forums or OnTheDash – grab them before we begin this maintenance.

Thanks to everyone for their patience, and let’s just hang on for a few more months, at which time we are hoping to be able to move all the forums onto a modern, new software platform.
