    Hello Family,

    Whew! I really expected all of this to go real smooth! Now that we're back up, and i've browsed around the community with the doors open and yall moving around and stuff ... i'm seeing errors. To be honest with you, i don't know if those are really errors, or my eyes playing tricks on me, or maybe i just need ta reboot! :wink: ... iono ... and i aint finna try to figure it out right now. i iz goin' ta bed.

    Yall move around, click on stuff, and let me know what you think.

    We upgraded the forum software and the chat software. So everything is "brand new."

    The forum upgrade doesn't bring many, new, end-user features, but i've not really looked. The majority of this upgrade was changing the basic foundation of the vbulletin software, it seems.

    Oh yeah ... we got a new "shout box" on the home page ... it's pretty kewl!

    The chat upgrade should allow you to be able to send private messages (this feature wasn't working for us before). You can also mute those on the mic, just click on their name in the "talk box," if they're talking or playing music.

    We usually learn this stuff together, so if you find anything new, or have a problem with anything, receiving errors, etc., please share.

    holla atchall in a few ...

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Hi Sister Queen Abena ... ya know Sister, way back in the day, i remember when i useta hafta open a "shelter" for the Family whenever we were gonna be down for any great length of time (24+ hours). Folk would start hyperventilate'n and stuff! :)

    You can go to your Edit Options and set the time to your own area. Just skooch down that page and you'll see, Date & Time Options. The default is Eastern Time (which is an hour ahead of me too).

    If you see anything else ... let me know.

    :heart:

    Can't log into chat...

    When I log into chat, it says: "you do not have permission to enter the chat" ...does anyone else have this problem?
    If so, please post it here.
    thanks...queentswana
