The old one was being held together with bandaids and its crutches were about to give out.

Seriously, the software platform on the old board was just not built to service as many members as we have or hold all the work we share which was why it was running so slow.

It won't take very long to learn your way around here.

Hope you find the time to save any info from the old board that you need.

Di, we've waited a long time for the upgrade. The response time on the old servers was so poor. I think you'll really like it once you get used to it.

I agree. I never posted on the old board, I was mostly a reader (stalker? Flapper ) but this message board is sooooo much faster that it's 10x more bearable now! Yiippeeee. =)

So why is there a new message board?? I was just getting the hang of the other and then make the post already reaf after Oct 1 so we can't refer back to it. this isn't nice!!



There are dozens of techncial answers ... but the bottom line is that we outgrew the server the old MB was on. Both the total membership and the total posts were HUGE). Give this one a chance, I think you'll like it here too! Smile

I agree that the faster response is worth the move! BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin On the old board, I would click ona new forum, switch to another tab in my browser to look at another new page, check back to see the Cricut forum had loaded, surf some more other web site, then finally come back to Cricut to read the forum.

I actually find this message board to be easier to use then the old one! Plus i can talk to everyone on my iPad. The old message board didn't work on my iPad. I love how much faster it is. I will be using this message board!

No worries you can still read them on the old forum! You just wont be able to post on the old forum after October 1st. And many of the tips you read and reread can be downloaded to a document on your pc so you can have it available even if the forum isn't.BigGrin

I really like this new MB, it's easier and faster. I think the other one just got bogged down. I love how you can upload your pics.

They are closing the vinyl forum on the old MB today. And, I'm afraid if people don't start following the rules for posting, this one may not last very long. Crying

You'll love the format once you get used to it.....Smile - It's great!

usaladydi - that's not very nice to respond to a Circle member (or ANYONE) like that....you have your choice to join just like we did. Remarks like that will only make you look bad to other members.

At the risk of sounding totally dumb, what does it mean to be a "circle member" ?

I also love the new boards I love that they move sooo much faster. I think that everyone should just follow the rules it isn't that hard we are all adults no matter what board you are posting on.
