    Forum issues today

    Hi Sox fans,

    I wanted to let you know what went on today with the forums.

    We've decided to build our own forums and article comments instead of using those provided by another company. We believe that having that software on our own servers will give us more flexibility and control.

    As part of that process, we are moving all of the data from the company we're using now to our servers. In order to make it easier for us to get that data, the company upgraded its software today.

    Unfortunately, the upgrade caused problems: It messed up article comments on BostonGlobe.com, it took many of the forums offline, and it caused a few threads to disappear. After working all day to rectify it, this evening we told the company to go back to the earlier version before the upgrade.

    It worked; On the Front Burner is back. Unfortunately, in reverting, all discussions started and posts added today are gone.

    So, a sincere apology. I can't promise that more weird things won't happen as we make this massive transition, but our developers are working diligently to minimize the disruptions.

    Thanks.

    Finally some one in a RS forum that says what they did wrong instead of making no comment or changing the thread.
    THANK YOU FOR SHOWING THE RIGHT WAY
