Actually there is good news and bad news. The good news is we are back up and running. The bad news is the necessity to register in order to post comments. Sadly there are people in the world with nothing better to do than create havoc for websites. We had one of the last websites not requiring registrations and that has now changed.
In order to post a comment, go to the bottom of the comment section and click on the registration site. It isn't necessary to register your true name but you do have to register a valid email address (WHICH WILL NOT BE POSTED ON THE SITE) your comments will be reviewed in the beginning by me and then I am able to mark the accepted comments as a trusted poster and I won't need to check them anymore. Almost all the posters we have now will be "grandmothered and grandfathered" in and will have automatic trusted poster status.
On the registration site you will see (to the left of the page) where you sign up your member name and password and the site will remember you for two weeks if you wish or you can sign in each day. To the right of the page is the registration page. As I have to initially approve each poster, my hope is to get everyone registered this next week before I have to go back to work.
The regular rules will still apply such as; no obscenity, no personal attacks of other posters, and hopefully polite discourse otherwise the offending post will still be deleted but not the "trusted poster" status.
As you can see on the comment page we now have a search engine, hopefully that will be helpful to finding past information.
Morgana, all of Astroworld and myself wish you a very Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or Happy Celebration, or just a good day on the 25th of December, we are not picky.
If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to email me with your questions and we will get this straightened out as we move into an advanced technological world.
The problems we had over Christmas are now resolved and I appreciate your patience I am counting on a great new year. I love the new site and am more than willing to put up with the time consumming glitches we've have to go forward into the New Year with a much improved site, I hope you are too.
