    That's a wonderful idea, and I wish someone had used the Facebook page to let people know what was going on.

    And I'd completely forgotten there is a BrainTalk Facebook page--even though I signed on it a while ago.

    Rose, I used an old e-mail address too but must have hit it lucky because it worked.

    EDITED TO ADD:

    I found that this was posted on Facebook yesterday:

    BrainTalk was taken down by the host because the bill was "past due". Dr. Hoch's credit card had expired and he forgot to update the new info with the host. He has a ticket in with support because after paying the bill and updating the billing info, BT is still offline. Since it is a billing (or was) issue, only Dan is authorized to "fix it". David will be calling him a little later tonight to get an update.
    This was essentially what was in the e-mail I received.

    I did get on FB but with my schedule it wasn't as soon as it could have been :p

    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    I was in a panic when the board was down. I am terrible about posting but I really depend on the board. I have made some good friends here and I know when I am at my lowest I can come here and there are people who know what it is like. Granted it was better back in the day when the board was really active. But it took time to get that way and hopefully it will return. It is what it is.

    One of the best things about BT is it isn't a clique like some of the others and while I belong to a few others this is the first place I come for the good or the bad.
