We need help

First- I am not blaming anyone for our problems.  That said, we need to change or we will lose this resource that I , at least, have depended on forever.  I don't have the skills to even suggest a solution, but with all of our members there must be some of you who can help. 

From my point of view, sometime in the last year or two the forum got F'ed up and suddenly I could no longer log on or access the forum.  I finally called Pat and she somehow got me straightened out, but it took time, it was a long time before I was able to access the forum, It had happened before and I was able to just register again, this time it wouldn't let me.  I think the problems were widespread because I notice that the posts are few and far between.  As a result I, at least don't come here nearly as often as I used to and its not just me, which means that when someone does post with a problem they aren't getting help or sympathy in a timely manner which is causing less use of the the forum.  Its a self perpetuating problem, that keeps getting worse and worse.  I know you people are smart enough to come up with suggestions to help solve this issue. 

This forum has always had its (used to be seasonal) ups and downs,but has always been a dependable source for information and help and it can be again, I just don't know how to help make it so.

The board was down for months last year. I made this one just to save the information with Pat's permission. People just needed their passwords reset because passwords are encrypted and can't be transferred over.

Beyond that I don't post much here any more for personal reasons but I still keep an eye out for trouble and update the board and such as needed so Pat can have something that works since she doesn't know the new board mechanics.

I know my old board was down, I can only guess the files were outdated.  I know Mary meant well, which I appreciate.  I really don't like the format either. I try to post, but been so busy with other stuff.

I plan on putting the original name sybilsden.com/bb/  I started it awhile ago, and found out later my hosting company changed the password on the database.  That is probably the reason I could not get the message board to accept the data on the updated board.

I will post when it is done. Thereafter I will forward this domain to the original one.

@pat.  Thanks, after I posted above it occurred to me that I should have talked to you first.  My intention was not to offend anyone, I just thought we all benefit from having this forum available and hoped to get people involved again-.  I think it was after I talked to you last that I ended up in the hospital and am still trying to get healthy again, so much of delay in being able to access the forum is on me.

Trefoil,  I know you didn't mean to offend anyone.  When I get my bb done, I will email everyone.  I might have a problem converting
the data from this board to the new one.  I will figure it out.  The data one  on Mary's board is a completely different forum than what I had before.
