So who pushed the group delete button and wiped out Muskies Bar?

    Man, that must have been some christmas party SKMB had last month. I wanna know who thought it a great idea to knock down muskies "Bar & Grill" and erect a big fence around the group site. Ghee, i mean i'm all for progress but blokes....THE BAR & GRILL !

    ...are the Tet corporation alive and kicking and now at the helm of good ship SKMB?

    Gonna see what the reason for this shut down was, and it better be because termites invaded, or you had a "bring your kid to work day" and they inadvertently pressed the big red DO NOT PRESS button, rebooting the system and putting Spock in charge of the enterprise!

    No more live writing- is it all gone? And the poetry corner? What about mylifeforyou and her quiz group? And I never did reread ???????? So What do we do now - is there an underground group of poets and fanboys scheming somewhere on here- secret knock and trousers rolled up at the knee with sweaty club handshakes and winks?

    boy, is Mark:belial: Gonna be pi$$ed when he finds his nudey pervy group gone. I mean i wiped a chapter he wrote and he nearly exploded- but his whole group wiped!!!!!!

    Tell me we can still meet in a secret room somewhere- pleeeeeeeeease!!!

    Going for a walk, see whats on offer here.

    Hi Sheemiee, we moved to the new software on Halloween, it was a necessary move because of the increasing number of bugs in vBulletin with each new upgrade. XenForo is a much better (and faster) option for us, though unfortunately it does not support the social groups.
    Messages on the old MB have been archived and although the groups are not currently accessible, all of the content is still there.

    This board is a bit different, but the feedback from people has largely been positive, folks seem to be enjoying it very much. :)

    Thanks flake, hoping that when you bring the box of Christmas decorations down from the loft you can also bring the live writing box down with dwaynehoovers dusty back catalogue . I will micro dot them - and file them in my rolladeck.

    Good to be back, after my anger management rehab - and in the words of 80s gods ABC "...everything's good in the world tonight" 'cos smokey is singing!

    Merry chrimbo flake.

    Probably not something we'll be able to do on this site in order to keep Stephen's lawyers happy. It could potentially cause a problem if he independently came up with an idea that was being written about here. He does come to the Board now and again to read posts which he can do as a Guest, but he never went into the Social Groups before so it wasn't an issue.

    You could do a Conversation--this Board's term for PMs--and invited members could participate in any live writing you'd like to do. It would be a roundabout way of creating your own Social Group but the down side would be that no one other than the invited members would be aware of it.

    We did take losing the Social Groups into consideration when switching but other than losing that and the Spoiler Button, for the most part this board's software is much easier to use and we had outgrown vBulletin's software plus they were no longer going to be supporting a crucial software coding that would have made it impossible to use to integrate this with the rest of stephenking.com.

    Thanks guys , Vulture left me some breadcrumbs to follow back through the Drawers. It's taken a while but it's good to see the door still open for me after my break.

    So what's been happening ??

    I'm not so sure mine does either--it's too busy pushing the shiver/teeth chattering button. :)

    Hmmmm - user friendly- I dunno- how the heck do you write in someone's page . I swear I'm not stoopid - I just tried to drop a note to sundrop but all I succeeded in doing was following her. Is this designed for generation z and the window 8 lovers - because I'm having a confused moment.

    Perhaps she has some settings allowing/not allowing certain things(?) If she notices your message here, she may be able to fix that.
    (Did you click on her avatar and did that take you to her profile area? In her profile area there should be a button that says Information, if you click this it will show you a link below where you can Start a Conversation... give that one a go. :)

    Yeh flake, found info button but no conversation . It's gonna take me a while - like finally throwing away them old comfy sneakers that finally fell apart, and wearing the ones you bought but never really wanted to wear.

    So we can't just post on people's pages and run anymore- I have to converse with them now? Oh man, the world is moving on too fast for me.

    Exchanging pleasantries is not my strong point- but hey ,I'll give it a go .

    Good day to you madam.

    You can still post messages into the profile area, but I'm not sure if you both have to be 'following' each other to do this? (somebody else know if this is so?)

    You may be right about Windows 8 - I find it easier on here on my desktop computer which has Windows 8 and much slower on my laptop which has Windows 7. As far as Generation Z goes - I am in my 50s so almost a Baby Boomer (I don't even know what Generation Z means so I guess I will go Google it!) :very_confused:

    I have heard that Windows 8 sucks the fa.... isn't very user-friendly, unless you have a touch-screen--I don't.

    Plus you are only allowed 140 characters in a profile message, so it is better to have a private 'conversation' with someone. You can also invite up to five people total (I think that includes yourself) in a 'conversation'.

    Oh yeah - got to have the whole she-bang - cordless keyboard and mouse, touch screen, etc. But we did manage to hook up our old printer, at least!
