So....change is hard.  But change is good....it really, really is.  I've made this announcement twice before in this community and each time it hasn't gone that well, but eventually everyone agrees that the change was a good thing.  It really, really was.

We have a new message board!  (cue the crickets)

I know, I know.  You don't think there is anything wrong with this one.  And technically, it is OK.  It works, it posts our messages, it archives.  But is built on an ancient framework that doesn't even offer support anymore.  Which again wouldn't be a huge deal, except for that one nasty little thing.

SPAM.

We don't use our message board enough and a lot of people have either stopped using it or never gotten registered due to spammers.  In the last week alone 163 spammers have requested membership in the board.  If we allowed them in, you'd see so much porn here that you'd never realize what Kyle was up to these days.  And while that might be OK with some of you, it really does stop Kyle from getting the most out of communicating with his fans. 

So we have decided to go with a new message board that integrates with the new site.  The great thing about it is that you can log into it via your Google ID, your FB or Twitter ID, Yahoo....any of one of the zillions of log ins you already have.  You don't have to register; you just log in with one of your OTHER log ins.  This will be easier for you and it will help us keep the spammers away. 

What will happen to this message board and all of the great content here from the last five years?  Not a thing.  I did try to pull the data and plug it into the new service, but it didn't work.  Still, there's nothing stopping us from just keeping this board as a great historical archive; thousands of posts are here and nothing will happen to them.  We'll stop registrations here, so we don't get overtaken by spam, and we can just enjoy a trip down memory lane now and then. 

Sound good?  We're all on board?  Hope so. 

So without further ado (gee, could I make this any more wordy?), here's the link to the new forum.  As avid members of this old forum, you'll get a special exclusive preview of the new forum for a few days before I link the main forum link to the new site.  And because I'm a KV fan too, I put a special treat over there (had to get extra special permission from The Talent) for those who stop on by and check out the new digs.  See if you can find it.   ;D

I don't much like change, but if it's a better way to go, so be it! I will get used to it. Aimster, I found the "treat," but unfortunately it didn't work for me. It came up as unavailable. Can you help me with it?
