    B Site Downtime Coming

    We will be taking BGO offline (we believe, ever-so-briefly) in order to facilitate transition to our new site. Exact timeline for the downtime remains to be determined, but likely between now and Monday. When we come back online again, you'll find yourself in a brand new BGO environment. Many of the features you all asked for months ago have been incorporated, others are in progress. Remember that while we've worked hard to do as much work as possible before opening up the new board to you all, that it will not be a finished product. We have intentionally waited to upgrade several core features (like the Arcade, Chatrooms, Gallery, etc..) until after go-live. We will be launching a new mobile skin at go-live, but customizing that skin will occur over the next several weeks (and of course, you can always utilize one of our favorite apps, Tapatalk, when visiting the site on your portable device).

    We're excited to show you the new digs within the next several days, and to continue improving it over the next couple months. Thanks for your contributions to BGO over the years - it's exciting to launch a new site fresh off the showroom floor - and it's an opportunity to recommit yourself to this great little community.

    Hence the site refresh. ;-)

    I kid, I kid! You were actually a great help and that whole episode is the big reason behind this update. We were just behind the times and that proved it.

    Being IT guys, I suspect if we did call you, you'd just tell us to reboot

    Boone, man, your optimism is charming......now I'm going off in the corner and cry on your behalf for a while. It is impossible to overestimate how much longer things like this will take as opposed to wishful thinking and the most carefully constructed sales pitches of web developers. I'm planning on cutting you a lot of slack here, bud.

    I am seriously looking forward to the gradual emergence of the 2014 S-class BGO with all the new high-tech options and conveniences. Good luck and have fun.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    While the site's down, we should all just hang out at Mike's house for the weekend, since he's already having "Guys Weekend Out" with his boys, and has 2 Kegerators full enough to provide liquid refreshment for all of us.

    I hate this upgrade. I can't find anything. All my favorite features are gone and I don't like the colors.

    You didn't send in enough money. Small money = no voice.

    I don't know if this is the time or place to ask, but is anyone aware of a problem with the Search Function ? I've had trouble with it for a very long time.
    It's not a case of getting an error message, or it not processing at all. It does process, but it always returns zero results....even though I am positive the keyword I typed in was used before.

    It looks like we will be bringing the board down sometime later today/this evening. If all goes well, we'll be on the new upgraded board by later tonight. Fingers crossed
