    Peace and Blessings Family,

    The site will be closed beginning Saturday morning @ 12 am ET.

    We'll be closed for 24 hours. I'm hoping to have a shelter of sorts for us (see image).

    It is a chat room that will allow us to keep in touch with each other ... :desteelive:

    It's my intention to have it available soon after the site is closed, on our home page.

    Thanks everyone for your love, patience, support, and encouragement.

    Of course if i'm able to get us back open sooner, i will.

    Closing the doors 03/01/14 @ 12 am ET - reopening 03/02/14 @ 12 am ET.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Right Kemetstry ... sorta ... our regular chat room won't be open, but the "shelter" version shown above will.

    Let me know if you have more questions.

    Love You!

    Sorry it took so long Family ... longer than I had planned for.

    Premium Members ... i'll be adding an extra week to your subscriptions for these hours away.

    I still have quite a bit of work to do, but i couldn't keep us down any longer.

    So i just worked really fast and hard to get the main things operable, with the intent of catching up later.

    Thank you all so much for your love, patience, support, and confidence ... :blush:

    I Love Yall ... Thank You!

    Welcome Back!

    :heart:

    There are quite a few changes Family ... my mind is still reeling ... but let me see if i can name a few :

    1. Signatures have been removed from anyone who is not currently a Premium Member. In the past, everyone who was ever Premium, got to keep the signature forever ... but that's changed now. I want to make the Premium Membership service count, be worthy of your consideration ... so I can't give everything away to everyone ... only to hope others will buy it.

    2. You can all still browse invisble if you want, but you won't be able to see who else is on (and visible). If you make yourself visible, then you can see who else is visible. If you are a Premium Member, you can be invisible, and still see who is visible. At least that's how it's suppose to work, we shall see.

    That's all i can think of right now ... but i know there's more ... my brain is fried.

    I'll add more as i think on them ... or if you have a question about a feature ... just ask.

    I'll be working on documenting things better as time passes ... it's just so much to do ... i need a team ... :cry:

    Love You!

    :heart:

    3. Adding videos is different now ... they will no longer make a new thread, that shows up on the home page ... so feel free to add as many as you'd like without worrying about "overwhelming the discussions." I've got to figure out a way to better showcase them though ... on the home page and other pages ... and i will do that.

    So be sure to check out the new Gallery! Link at the top of the page!

    All of your videos and images you've added in the past, are there!

    Much Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    5. I merged all of the poetry forums into one. I have maintained their integrity though, with each thread having a "thread prefix" that matched the forum they use to live in. For example, the haiku poetry has a "haiku" prefix on it. Likewise, "quiet poetry" all came from the Quiet Lounge, with critiques having a "critique" prefix.

    So now when you post poetry, just pick which prefix you want on your poetry, allowing them to all live in the same forum, but having the distinctions that we've come to know.

    6. I did the same with the recipes forum too. Combined all of them, but you can pick if your recipe is "meat", "vegetable", "pasta", etc. You can even choose "food discussion" for all of the food topics, will go in that same forum.

    I combined quite a few forums, got rid of some (by moving threads to other places), and I may be combining them even further, as some get so little activity it just doesn't make sense for them to be a whole forum by theirselves.

    For example ... the Budhism Study Group and the Judaic Study Group are now gone. Combined they might have had 10 threads in them ... so i moved those few threads to the Main Spirituality Forum, and deleted those forums. Same with "The Old Testament Study Group" ... it's gone too.

    There are others that have been combined, deleted, etc., ... if you miss seeing something, just ask.

    Much Love and Peace.
