    Good deal!

    Thanks for running this down, Joe.

    If ads would drive some revenue that would help defray the cost of maintaining the board..... are they an option?
    Granted, I have no knowledge of the "how" or even if such a thing is possible. For example: would the act of "selling" ads for the board entail hiring a salesperson.. etc...
    Just trying to see if there is a way WAB users can do something so the WAB maintainers see a revenue generating partner, at least to some extent.
    That's something I intend to bring up with Chris as we plan out the future of the board.

    It's certainly high time that Rochen sees some ROI on the board, through one means or another.

    My sincerest apologies for the lack of attention here. I have just followed up privately with TopHatter.

    I am going to make sure we get everything fully updated here and back on track hopefully within the next week. I will provide a further update in due course.

    Thanks again to everyone for your continued support of WAB while we work to get everything fully back on track again :)

    - Chris
    Many thanks!

    Would not an approach via that get an answer to our question about transferring data (old threads) to a new site - for a fee of course.

    PS I raise this suggestion with some hesitation because it make be they have simply forgotten about us and reminding them we are still here might lead to someone hitting the 'kill switch' prematurely.
    Tried it. WAB is a "special" case, handled by the CEO only.

    How we're still alive and kicking, I have no idea.

    Work around

    It takes if you post as 'Reply to Thread', that blue button at bottom left.

    But 'Reply with Quote' sometimes is 'Not Acceptable'. Will repeatedly reject.

    There is no pattern here. 'Reply with Quote' works in some threads and not others.

    And when it does not work, it keeps rejecting your attempts. As if you got banned from the topic !!

    But no...

    What you do is 'Reply with quote', copy it, cancel, then go to 'Reply to Thread', paste, then type your answer and post.

    Reminds me of Hotel California : )

    You can check in any time you want but you can never leave..
