It's going to take weeks

Postby Dennis Olson » Sun Aug 02, 2015 5:12 am

To get this place fully configured. New forum setup is a huge PITA. Please have patience everyone.

Thanks.

It doesn't have to look pretty, as long as it allows communication when the main TB is down!

Thanks a bunch for doing it guys, even though I don't post often, it was scarey last week when things were going south at good old TB...

It will be nice to have something to relieve the "separation" if the main site goes down. Thanks for all your hard work. Pat

Anything worth doing is worth taking the time to do it right.

Dennis, if the primary purpose of a backup board is to relay info about the main one... sounds like y'all need a stickied thread on main (or subforum) for Admin notices. That way, people will have 1 place to look for "official news".

Actually we have a special announcement module - when this type of thing is needed, the message will be enabled, and a banner appears at the top of the site until the user clicks to acknowledge they have seen it.

And so far, I can't figure out to do sticky threads to save my life. Was looking on Google last night. What the instructions said to do aren't doable in this version of the software. Frustrating.

That's a good idea and one that has been needed for a long time IMO.

Site looks great. They are a LOT of work.

Great idea - complete separation of the two entities!

Now the hard part....getting everyone to setup accounts here.

That has pretty well already been done tech. We have the 'core' group of tb2k's all set up here.
