Good Evening, We are working on an update for the message board, and also a site layout update. The message board program we currently use has served us well but it is no longer being supported. We are therefore changing to a new one. We hope to have the updates completed by tomorrow (December 4th).

**Update: Moving 18 years of posts is taking a bit longer than anticipated. But new message board is coming soon.

Note: Your existing Username will remain the same. Your password will need to be updated. We will send out an email to the email address associated with your username with a new temporary password. You can use it to log in and then select your choice of a password. Alternatively you can use the "forgot password" feature and go through the process that way.

Thank you.

Good Morning, we have completed the bulk of the update. We are working through a few issues. 

Please note: We transferred all usernames. We could not transfer passwords. You will have to choose a new password.

1. You will receive an email with a new temporary password. You can use it to log in and choose a new password. 

2. You can click Log In and then "Forgot Password" and go through the process and choose a new password. 

Thank you.

When we transferred the message board data we lost a couple days of threads/posts; the most recent ones within a 2-3 day window. We are trying to move them manually.

Not to mention older threads on different boards that are not easy to go back and refer to unless you go thru 65 pages.

I am sorry but this new setting got me so lost.... I finally managed to log back in, I am not a high tech wizard (understatement)… will do my best to get used to it, changes are so tough, though sometimes necessary? out of curiosity, what was "wrong" with the previous settings? It 's ok if you don't have to answer 🙂

Just trying to find the old thread to Bee removal person, thank you for your help, anyone:)

It is a great forum, very useful and friendly.
