Another Update About Absolute Write's Forums

I received an email from Birol, one of Absolute Write's Supermods and the official Town Crier during the board crisis:

First, the board is still down. It is not yet open.

What is happening is Jenna, Charlie, and Scott are attempting to escalate use in order to see when, or if, the board goes "boom." (Gotta love those technical terms, don't you?)

    • First, Jenna and Charlie logged in. The board was fine, so
    • The supermods were introduced to the mix. There were a couple of lags, but nothing major, so
    • The moderators have now been added (yes, if you are a moderator, you can now log in, check on your board, and try to break things.)

There have been a couple of minor issues with the mods in, so where we go from there, I don't know. The error messages were forwarded to Scott. I'll let you know when I know anything new.

On the plus side, all the data appears to be intact and the board is getting healthier all the time.
Please continue to be patient. We'll get everyone home soon. :)

In other news here at Dawno's: I've added a newsletter to my offerings at the CafePress store. I'm working on Vol. I, no. 1 today. If you want to read it please go to the sidebar and enter your email addy in the teal colored newsletter subscription box.

I'm going to start work today on my own webpage at It's scary - I've never tried anything harder than tweaking the html in the templates provided here and on my old blog. But, I've got the tools and both CSS for Dummies and HTML for Dummies - what could go wrong? (that was humor...just in case you thought I'd completely lost it there for a moment)

Thanks for the update, Dawno.
And best of luck on your site. I can't wait to see it!

Thanks for the update! I was drawn to the forums this afternoon when I received a pm from Nancy. I could load the "Sorry, we're still working on it page," and open the PM window . . . but I couldn't read the message. Strange how she could compose and send, but I couldn't read. ::sighs::

Best of luck with your site design! Yes, you're right, it is very scarey!

Hi Dawno, I can't wait for AW to be up and running again. I have so many questions on blogging and I look forward to joining that part of AW. Good luck with your website!

Good luck with your web design, Dawno - I'm also looking forward to seeing it. I'm also doing a complete site redesign, but not on the lmashton site - I'll give you a link when I'm done. :)

I'm no expert, but I know a little bit. If you need a hand, let me know...

(And this comment has been sitting for how many hours now, waiting for me to hit Publish? I thought I did it already...)
