I agree with you buddy. Everyone is doing a great job. Glitches are always going to happen but it’s nice to see everyone work hard so we can have our platform to preach from. Thanks guys

I second that Bob! This is an important site to me and I think it is just about ideal for our purposes. I have been worried about it being changed to something not as user friendly.

It does look like things are better. Reality says it would be fixed. So those who said the sky is falling and threatened to leave the site because they couldn’t deal with it can find something else to complain about. From what I see we have a great management team in charge now. Life is good.

Thank you to Cricket and to those working behind the scenes to make these improvements.

Now could you slow things down a bit? I no longer have time to drink my coffee while waiting for a page to load – just kidding!

Don’t mean to be a wet blanket but does that mean that the search function is working for you guys? Or are you just talking about loading speed?

Search is still down for me but I never had the loading issue you guys experienced. Mind I am not complaining. I know fixing software is a complicated and painstaking process.

I am pretty new here but I have found this site to be great! I have gotten great help and advice and learned a ton of stuff from everyone here. So thanks to LJ and Cricket for maintaining an awesome site!

Yup much better!! :o) And it only took a month or so LOL. Hey, at least we’re pretty much back to normal. Thank you!!!

Now how ‘bout them adds. Like getting rid of the pic of the little girl in the pink dress SCREAMING at ya. Kid needs to go stand in the corner for a while. Don’t think the add will induce many members here to go out and by pink dresses for a screaming brat. Maybe replace it with a WW add, or car, motorcycle, hunting/fishing….. or just get rid of it all together :o)

I’m sure there’s a lot involved in keeping a site like this running. Just like your maintenance on your shop equipment, vehicle, motorcycle, whatever. Remember, patience is a virtue. :)

Most of us who have our own websites know we run on a fairly simple program. As the numbers of users grow it takes larger and much more complex programs to manage a website. At the hospital where I work, we have a team of individuals from IT to manage for each of the main programs that we run. Doing upgrades and troubleshooting takes an enormous amount of time. Glitches will happen. Their fixes will also happen.

I just thought we should say thanks not just criticize when there are issues. Thanks to all who joined in thanking them.
