Hi Everyone,
We apologize for the downtime this afternoon. We decided to switch to a new forum software which required downtime to process the data transfer. We switched software for 2 reasons:
#1 a bug in the mybb software was causing an issue with pagination which was the reason some users were unable to see new posts.
#2 as the community grows we feel that its better to have a quality software in place versus a free software.

We hope that you enjoy the new look and feel of this new board. We may make a few minor changes here and there over the coming few days but we expect no more significant downtime unless upgrades are pushed for the software itself.

Thanks!

For users on tapa you will need to sign out and back in.

For users on the board you will have to log in if you don't know your password find us on FB twitter or email support and we will get you fixed up right away.

Quick question - not a problem - How do you delete conversations? We exchanged some today and I don't need them now but I don't see a delete option when I check the check boxes.

"Conversations are automatically deleted when every participant has left the conversation."

Basically, you can just "leave" the conversation by clicking the link that says that. ;)

I thought about deleting the old convos, but I thought people might have wanted to keep them.
Some I did but a bunch were with Shawn about today and no need to keep those - so I did what you suggested and they are gone and the ones I wanted to keep stayed! Very nice transition folks!

All you have to do is convince her that this is your stress relief and it's for health reasons. You would be shocked how much money I've spent over the years on running shoes apparel and signing up for races not to mention the trips but the wife has agreed because it is keeping my blood pressure down and saving my life. It works!

Speak for yourself. This site has caused my blood pressure to increase 300% in the course of the last week.
