Welcome to the new and improved BB!!
After nearly 1 million posts and 9 1/2 years on the ezboard/Yuku system, we have decided to move BB to our own servers. Sorry for the surprise, but we couldn't discuss the move publicly without risking the board's deletion.
The vast majority of posts (over 600,000!) have been copied over along with your username and post count. In order to be reunited with your account, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will issue you a temporary password.
Your private messages, photos, etc. have not been moved, as those are tied to your account, not the board. Your Yuku account is still accessible on Yuku.com. You can login there to save your pms and move any photos or avatars.
Most posts appear fine, but posts in a few other languages (such as some topics in J. World) couldn't be transferred properly. You can start fresh or copy posts you want to keep from the original board on Yuku. The original posts are still available on Yuku (beautiful962.yuku.com), but they may not be for long. We suspect that once they realize we have moved, the board will be deleted.
We ultimately decided to move because of Yuku's lack of stability. We are sure you've encountered the white pages, gateway errors, issues logging in, etc. It had become a huge source of frustration for us and we had no control over it. That along with the unresolved bugs, frequent acquisitions, more and more ads, etc, we just were not comfortable leaving BB's fate in Yuku's hands.
Please bear with us because we are getting used to the new setup, as well, so there will be some growing pains as we all get settled, but we will do our best to make it as easy as possible! We are looking forward to all the new features we can implement and make use of here and we know it'll be a great new chapter for BB!
If you have any issues, questions or comments, feel free to post, and we'll try to resolve them ASAP.
