Cecilia 04/21/04 01:42 pm Just trying to see if I can post now...have not been able to since this morning. I keep getting a message that says "could not connect to DB". Also, frozen picture again, at 1:43.

RonS 04/21/04 05:02 pm Thanks, Tom.
The new message board should work out just fine. My only concern with the "chat style" room is one of timing. With the message board, a person can add to a discussion topic at any time but with a chat room, if you are not there when the topic is raised, you miss it. This would be frustrating to those who miss out because of work or a trip to the "refuge", etc.
Celeste 04/21/04 05:35 pm I agree with you Ron.....right now my schedule is really tight and I seem to be missing out on all the highlights and the happenings when they are actually happening. I would really be frustrated if I couldn't post a message any time I had some extra time. Also, for any newcomers who may join the sight as time went on, chat rooms might be intimidating. I know for me last year it took me a bit to participate fully. I was wary at first as I had never had any experience with message boards, talking to people I didn't know, (feel much differently now as I feel we have all become a "community"!) We had no problems last year with posting whatsoever. In fact on the fourth of July last year, it was the message board between Mickey, Kathy and myself that we chose the names of Freedom and Liberty for the two chicks. Many of us are not as computer literate as others, and keeping things very user friendly as it was last year is key to the success of this website not only in the present, but have long term benefits for the DPOF Board in general. (the more people who are aware of this website, the more people might become regular contributors, beside the heightened awarenes off this bird.

Celeste 04/21/04 05:38 pm SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST, IT IS THE RESULT OF A "GLITCH" IN THIS PROGRAM. (HITTING THE POST THE FOLLOWUP MESSAGE A SECOND TIME, BECAUSE OF THE "COULD NOT CONNECT" MESSAGE AFTER THE FIRST!!!!
