Default The Good, the Bad, the Future

good news
the forum was completely restored and the template was updated. some minor improvements were made to target search engines (to help increase our exposure).

the bad news
we did lose the 90 or so posts made over the last three weeks and any new accounts generated. we're keeping the old forum online for a couple of weeks here (http://www.als.ca/_forum_old/) for those of you that might want to copy (highlight + ctrl-c) and paste (ctrl-v) any important posts they may have made over the last 3 weeks.

in conclusion
the last few weeks have been very frustrating for everyone involved with the discussion forum.

while i can't guarantee something like this won't happen again in the future (the chances are very unlikely), i can promise that the turn around time will be much more acceptable. the new forum software is much easier to upgrade and maintain (this should help keep the forum stable and up-to-date)

the upgraded forum brings much more security and some new features to the als discussion forum.

please enjoy, have fun, take care and keep on posting !

warm regards,

david wilson
