    Website Maintenance this weekend (downtime expected)

    Advertisements



    Attention Users:

    Those who have been with us a while probably know that ValueMD has been working on upgrading its forums. This process has taken longer than expected, but we hope that you'll agree that the end product will have been worth the wait. Aside from a new look and feel, this upgrade appears to be much more stable, which should significantly reduce the number of glitches. The upgrade also includes many of the feature requests which were made by our users, including things like an Ignore feature, preview post without opening thread, sub-forums, and much more. We've also eliminated some of the less popular features which were compromising our speed.

    The upgrade will require some significant downtime which we have scheduled for late on Saturday evening (approximately 9 PM EDT). Although we tried to pick a time with the least amount of traffic, we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We're hoping the site will be back up and running within a few hours, or by Sunday morning. However, it's possible that it can go well into Sunday. At the very least, you should expect to see several bugs during our transitional period. Please report these bugs in the Tech Support forum or to the valuemd support team via email.

    We understand that some users are not welcome to change with the idea of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". But ValueMD has always been about providing the very best possible experience for it's users, and this upgrade, we believe, will help provide that experience. Thanks for your patience and understanding and, as always, thanks for using ValueMD!

    I hope they keep it the way it is now. It is user friendly now; I am afraid if they install new technology it might turn away some people.

    friends are for losers. I have virtual friends, they share in my addictions and owe just as much as I do.

    Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket...

    Never argue with an idoit, people watching will have trouble tell you apart

    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.
