To all users:

There are some items that will not carry over to the new board. This will happen in just under a week. We, as the moderators, want to make sure you have an opportunity to save whatever is important to you.

1. Feedback. Any feedback left on stories will not carry over. If you want to save anything...whether it be because you are an author and want to remember what readers have said...or because you are a reader and left some feedback that you thought really contributed to the story.......Please take the time to copy and paste whatever you want to keep into a document on your computer. NONE of this is programmed to carry over to the new board. If you have any questions, please let me know. I'm extremely familiar with copying and pasting items from the board onto my hard drive.

2. Bmail. Any items in your inbox (or outbox) will not carry over to the new board. If you have anything you need to keep, please make sure you get it copied.

V E R Y I M P O R T A N T The program will be copying in a set way. Any posts done by the person who started the thread will be subject to being carried over to the new board. This creates a minor problem....Stories such as "A Farewell to Arms" where there is more than one author posting updates. If you are an author on such a story, PLEASE let a moderator or administrator know. Those stories will be moved in a different way (that is more time consuming, so we only want to do it when needed). We don't want to lose any parts of stories. If a story doesn't fit into the "norm" of one author updating under one log in name, please let a mod or admin know -- you can also just reply to this post. That way we can make every effort to make sure no parts are lost.

To my knowledge, your member account will carry over. It should also carry over the number of posts you've had here. One of the other mods can correct me if I am wrong in this, but that is what we have discussed.

Thanks Darth...I hadn't thought about that.
