I've searched around, but if there's already a thread thanking Zoomway for getting the boards up and running again, I can't find it!

So, Zoomway, many thanks for getting us all back online again. I know a lot of people were starting to suffer fanfic withdrawal symptoms, myself included, so I really appreciate the work you've put in to shift the boards over yet again. I heard a rumour that you may have had a helper or two, so many thanks to them as well. smile

Oh, and thanks for keeping us so well informed about the problem, too. smile It's always easier to cope with a breakdown in service if you've been told what's going on.

some of us posted our thanks to Zoom on the 'testing the new boards' thread in the Lois and Clark section which is probably why you can't find it.

I just wanted to add my thanks to Zoom, not only for the mammoth effort over the last few days but also generally in setting up and running the Boards.

When the Boards go down, it reminds us how much we owe for the huge amount of time you put in Zoom.

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you! We'd be lost without you!

Hi,

I'd also like to add a huge thanks to zoom for sorting out the problem so quickly. It must have been a huge task, so I'm very grateful to you and to your helpers. Thanks to you I can now indulge my addiction to reading fanfiction. I'm a very happy reader once more. biggrin

Yours Jenni

Thanks! /me dances a dance for happiness! boogie party

I'll add my thanks, too, Zoom. You always do a terrific job in providing us with this forum, and your work in getting us back on line so quickly is sterling, to say the least. I especially appreciate the new 'review post' section. smile

Aw, thank you, Yvonne blush There are a couple of thank-you threads. Really, fans have been amazing during this whole thing. Extremely patient and supportive.

Georgia, Nekanuq and Jeff Brogden all offered to help with high speed transfer since I only have a dial-up connection, unfortunately it's hard to explain the different file types the board has (cgi, pl, css) and what files should be uploaded and which have to be avoided. Jeff even went to the UBB site to look at the moving instructions for transferring a board to a new site and I was going to meet him on IRC and talk him through which files to move and what FTP settings had to be used, but his daughter injured her foot on the playground. Thankfully her injury turned out to be just a bad bruise and not a break as was originally feared.

Even though Jeff didn't get a chance to help, I really appreciate his offer to try, and I also thank Georgia and Nekanuq and I thank Wendy and many many others who offered donations for the new site. I don't need the money, but just the offer is worth more than money to me.

I was talking to Anita on IRC about how the message board is a little like 'Cheers', the bar of sitcom fame. The patrons of Cheers made it what it was and you guys make the message board what it is. I just sweep up here biggrin

Anyway, here's a Cheers tribute to you and the message board community ...



Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got



Takin' a break from all your worries sure would help a lot



Wouldn't you like to get away?



Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name



And they're always glad you came



You want to be where you can see troubles are all the same



You wanna be where everybody knows your name

Cheers, FoLC

Norm ... uh ... Zoom wink
