Eileen Stein Posted June 13, 2018 Report Share Posted June 13, 2018 Hi Everybody, Once again we reached a point where our Boards software was out of date and no longer being supported. We had to do an upgrade, which was supposed to be seamless but as usual was not seamless. I apologize to everyone who tried to log onto the Boards the last couple of days and were unable to do so. The new software is in place now and theoretically there should be no future problems, but we all know how that goes, so please post here to let me know if you do run into problems. There are two significant changes that we had to make. 1) The software no longer has separate entries for username and display name, so we had to pick one or the other to serve for both. We chose display name, on the theory that it is the one most people know. A lot of the people who email me saying they can't get on the Boards are being tripped up because they forget that their username is different from their display name, and they don't remember their username. This will eliminate that problem at least. 2) There is no longer a "friends" feature, instead there is a "followers" feature. We had the choice of making all friends into followers, or dropping the "friends" function altogether. We chose to drop "friends," because on reviewing the way that "followers" would operate, it appeared that it would make formerly confidential information accessible to other people, without warning. Again, if you have any comments, questions or complaints, please post them in this thread or contact me privately. Thank you all for your patience. --Eileen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
