And I agree, the site is much slower. Especially just refreshing the main page in the Lounge takes 10-30 seconds where it used to be near instant.

The board is in sad, sad shape.

Someone had to say it.
I did not miss it.

Re: Welcome back everyone

First of all, its kinda sad how much a website being down for 2 hours affects YOUR LIFE.

I only tried to get on here about 14 times during that period...

Yeah... its interesting how I can list a quick few facts about most regulars here... some I could write paragraphs on

I don't think it was the money, it was the time consumed by running the business side of the site. And I totally understand and support why they did it, they have families and full time jobs, and they have made considerable sacrifices to keep this site as awesome as it is/was. I'm still hopeful that the current issues are just "growing pains" from moving to IB... but honestly I don't think it'll get better. Especially because of how much crap I've read about IB. But I will give it some time before I reserve final judgement and make any decisions about leaving.

Oh, I don't fault them for selling the site either. I have no problem with that, it's their life, their decision.
