    And it absolutely sucks.

    • Rochen must have a public internet website.
      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.
      If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.

        Tried it. WAB is a "special" case, handled by the CEO only.

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

        • Hi Everyone,

          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

                We all appreciate the good will Rochen has exhibited and it is exciting to see some communication from them.
                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.

                      • Minor (belated) update: As Chris mentioned, we've been in communication and there should be some changes/stability to the board sometime next week or shortly thereafter.

                          Good deal!

                          Thanks for running this down, Joe.

                            Wonderful!
                            The BOLD button works! (apropos of nothing except a small test to see if a button works)
                            The thumbs up button works!! (see TopHatter original post for demonstration)

                            Rochen, Chris, TopHatter, all involved in this update/upgrade... Thank you!

                            • Oh! WOW, talk about a new look.

                              Kinda prefer the older one since that's how its always been. Can't see any skinning options to do that.

                              A bit miffed my posts were being rejected earlier so took a break

                              :confu:

                                The new look is definitely an eye-opener lol. We'll definitely tweak that as time goes by.
