Well, we've been threatening for a while to get better bulletin board software...so here it is! [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img] I think this should last us quite a while, as it's pretty fancy (and I've used it on other forums in which I participate).

We're working on an archive solution for the old bulletin board, so that old messages will still be searchable. In the meantime, I hope everyone will start using this board instead.

As always, warmest regards,
Laura

speaking of archiving...

I'm not sure yet what we're going to do to archive the messages on the old bulletin board. If you want to get to the old bulletin board, go to: http://www.ichthyosis.com/wwwboard/wwwboard.html

One of the things that I LOVE about this software is that it automatically creates an archive (or said differently, it never needs to be archived). Because of the way it's organized, it can just grow bigger and bigger the way it is, and still be very manageable.

Hey everybody!! [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/eek.gif[/img] Thanks to everyone who has registered to use the board. I hope you found it easy and straightforward. BUT...

Nobody has posted anything yet!! We were starting to get quite a few messages every day on the old bulletin board, so I was expecting some posts right away to this board. This board is so much nicer, and easier to control. Please DO NOT be afraid that you're going to mess it up, or that what you have to say isn't important enough. As a registered user, you can edit messages after you've posted them (even DAYS after you posted them). Anytime you change your mind, or want to modify something, it's available to you.

Anyway...we were very excited to be able to make this board available. We thought it was a HUGE improvement. But now we're REALLY ANXIOUS for someone other than us to start using it!

Hi Laura & Chris,

The new board looks great! [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] I was shocked at first when it popped up because I was just on here earlier this afternoon and it didn't look like this!!! It was great meeting you guys in Philly. Talk to you soon!

Thanks Denise. And thanks for posting! We're absolutely dying for people to start using the board. At this point, 25 people have registered to use the board in 48 hours (which is good [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]) but you're the only one besides us that has posted [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/frown.gif[/img] We're impatient!

Hi Guys from your friends in Bermuda.
This site is really great. I am just getting used to search for my own information. Good Job! Chris, James wants to hang out with you at the next conference. You two can organize a dance or something. He will like that (He is "The Entertainer" you know!! [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif[/img]
