If you all are looking for a quick home for your cubits, I'd suggest temporarily setting up a board at http://www.proboards.com. It's free and really simple to create and maintain. I've owned a board there for the past several years. I have no interest financial or other interest in Proboards, I suggest it because I am familiar with it.

It may not be the best permanent home but will at least buy you some breathing space. There are a number of other forum hosting sites that may have features you'd want eventually, but I know this one is easy and free.

Looks like a board's been set up at Proboards!

I like a bulletin board format better than the Yahoo Groups format, myself. Yahoo Groups has a terrible spam problem, especially when groups are open and don't require moderator approval and moderation.

I just can't figure out yahoo groups. I was in one before and dropped out. I signed up there though, and then found the proboards group, and it is soooo much easier. You just post and chat, like here.

Yahoo needs to work on that format!

I agree I don't love yahoo groups either and proboards is so much easier to figure out!

Okay, I just thought it would be fun to bug you when I get bored because I am going to be very bored shortly. I am so use to clicking my way around Cubits that I will need a few new places to hang out. I am also trying to stay away from DG

I haven't been back to DG since someone pointed out that just clicking there improves their numbers. When I go back, it will be to officially cancel my membership.

Relax. It's only a small setback.
I spent 4 tedious hours the other night trying for a world record in developing carpal tunnel syndrome by deleting each and every of my Plantfiles ratings and personal comments I could edit out in the dahlias section. A to Z. If they can push a magic button and restore it all, let them. It was my silent little protest that they can't have my intellectual property without having to push the magic button!

I left my email to those few that needed it and the rest of DG can fester. I did not waste one click reading the 'conflict' forum posts nor will I return to DG unless I hear the IB team got their act together. I fear they won't and I hope it bites you-know-where them over time.

The real sadness, to me, is that Dave and the garden inhabitants built such a beautiful, informative and enjoyable refuge and now corporate greedsters who probably don't know a hoe from a hangnail are slowly going to destroy the place. On top of all the work Dave and Trish have done there and here at Cubits, that is the saddest thing to me.

On a bright note, if Cubits' death knell falls in 75 minutes or so, we'll all have some time to come up with new ideas and content for our sites should the opportunity reappear.

On a hilarious note- Starlight/Ella thought she was the most technology- challenged. Huh uhh- it's me! This whole time I've been wondering what secret handshake I missed out on and why people were typing : group hug :, : biggrin : etc etc. I thought it was just a waste of keystrokes, but must have some meaning to y'all LOL! This a.m. I found and turned on my emoticons control. Big Grin
Good luck to all Cubiteers no matter what unfolds.
