Hi WhatBirders! Admin has restored my previous role as a site moderator. I will be adding back in some information and features we used to have, and I can help with editing, moving, and merging posts

I'm posting a response to the request for a separate sub-forum for gulls that was mentioned in another thread. I thought it better to put it here so more people will see it and be able to comment if t

I encourage everyone to use a 'Like' to educate agreement with someone else's identification, esp if you only want to agree without adding information.  We can make these 'Reputation' ratings mean som

Is anyone else having a problem with what the screen looks like? It appears that almost all the buttons have transformed into little rectangles. I don't know if this is happening with other devices but this is what it looks like on my kindle fire.

On my MacBook yeah it’s wacky, but on my phone it’s fine.

Guess I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t get on here yesterday?

Yep, I couldn't open the forums either

Yeah I wasn’t able to get on either last night. I got worried.

Yes, there was a problem that I reported and was fixed by this morning. Can you tell me what posts are missing? Thanks!

I haven’t noticed anything missing, but thanks for reporting it!

The administrator has asked me to share the following information with you: "Yesterday we moved the forum to a new, more reliable and less hackable server." Some posts may have been lost during the transition since backups take some time, and some could have been missed in the last backup. The administrator and programmer are looking into any other problems that may have occurred so please report them here. Clearning cache may be necessary to make the site work properly, so that's a good place to start if things are looking odd (also if others still can't get into the site). We apologize for the inconvenience and hope the new server will be more stable.

Interesting. Thanks for creating it less hackable. I like that. Now I have noticed that lots of posts have been lost, but no topics have been lost. No problem about losing it, as long as these great forums are still available  to the public. 😎🥳

Actually the programmer fixed it but I'm glad it's back to normal now!

Yes, yesterday morning I came on, everything was how @Aidan Bshowed, and I was confused. Last night, I came on and the forums would not open. I got worried that the site would crash like I’d did a few years ago before I joined. Now that it’s back, I am happy

The admin has also let me know that they will increase the upload limit, so hopefully you won't run into problems with running out of space.

Awesome, I can stop having nightmares at night about this 😛

Um, is it just me or do we have unlimited reactions now!?

Probably just seems like it because you haven't used any all day and your full quota is available.  But toss 'em around like crackers at the duck pond and let us know!

Well, I just used over 10 in older share your best photo of the day posts, and I had reacted to a few before that, and I just liked your post so it seems like somethings different. Is it normal to toss around firecrackers at the duck pond? I’ll have to bring some to my birders walk tomorrow.

Not just you! Didn't take you long to figure it out. Everyone has unlimited reactions now. (No need to bomb the ducks!)

It will also make the forums more streamlined and reduce the "agreed" posts. I personally don't pay attention to the reputation ratings and don't plan to even now.
