I wish I hadn't read this thread. I was feeling happy about finding this forum. Now, I have reservations about participating here. Please tell me everything is great so as to contradict my overall assessment of this web-presence as it stands today!

I ran a large international gaming community when forums were calls BBS. My general conclusion is most corporate driven entities consider communications between customers to be a sideline, whereas in reality it becomes increasingly a medium for customer referral, and an indicator of internal customer services. Most error by means of failure to embrace the resources available via member participants. This has improved somewhat over the years, but it stands to reason many active participants know more solutions than the IT folk trying to figure out new software- if only they would provide updates and ask for help.

I'm not sure what is going on at F & W in that when I did business with them they were an excellent group of professionals. So, I'd guess this modification to newer software spans all of their publication websites, which makes it more difficult to curtail to a writer's venue. It also complicates SOP when it comes to volunteer moderators and levels of access/status required to fend off the evil spammers.

Thanks for your efforts moderators! Best of luck there, IT folk!

We're making progress, Mac. phpBB is very stable and useful, but like most BB software, it is not intuitive. Luckily, the phpBB forums themselves are chock full of solutions, but as we teachers well know, answers are useless unless you know the questions first. (And teachers who are chained to NCLB philosophy are pretty much useless, too, but don't get me started …)

I agree, communication could be improved between those in charge and peons, although I've seen some improvement. There's only so much a person can do in the time given him/her, however. But some of us are indeed helping out with what limited powers and knowledge we have.

So feel free to chime in when you see something that needs to be fixed, and if I can't fix it, I'll help you formulate the questions that need to be asked and then point you towards the right person to ask.

Ok I think you guys just answered my question. I was wondering what had happened to the old format and to all the old friends I'd made. Am i right in thinking that the spammers wrecked it all and that the admins had to reset it?
Looks like the admins have finally taken care of it.... or have they?

Thanks pls, its good to be back. Took some time off (having a baby, working on finding an agent for my novel). Anyway it's good to be back. I have recognised some of the old crew, and it's fun reconnecting. Here's hoping the new format proves successful for everyone.

pls: Can you please delete my post under the Ninety Years of WD thread? It's over a year old. I'm sure its providing a home for online bugs - probably smothered in spiders - and it's not doing my morale any good having it stare at me every time I log on. Please? Pretty please? :oops:
