Second Life Community Forums Offline

Many of you have probably noticed this, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.  The week before last, Linden Lab announced that they were updating the Forums on the Second Life website for a "new and more user friendly" experience.

That's (maybe) good news...for years, residents have complained about the shortcomings of the current forums (which replaced a set of forums that MOST of us rather liked and were comfortable with.)  Of course, until we actually see and use the new setup, we won't know for sure whether it's really good news or not.

Anyway, the plan was for the forums to be down for just three or four days while the new software was put in place and the old content migrated over to the new platform.  But, as is often the case, that estimate proved to be over-optimistic.  LL posted a notice saying that the switch would be complete by Friday...and that deadline was missed too.

The forums are still down as I write this, with a blog post by LL apologizing for the delay and asking us to be patient...


I wouldn't have believed that I'd miss the opportunity to tell someone, for the umpteenth time, to reboot their router and do a clean install of the viewer.
