September 2016 Update

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, it's been a good while since I've posted an update so I figured I would give you one since there are some changes going on around this area.

Software Upgrade
This is going to make me sound bad, but did you know that the Christian Teen Forums software hasn't been updated on this site in 3 years? How embarrassing! This site has been very vulnerable to security issues and if you've noticed, there have been lots of spammers lately. This upgrade will hopefully help with that problem! I understand change can be hard because it's...different.  It'll take some getting used to but I know you'll be there in no time!  If you were around when we did our last major upgrade 3 years ago, there was a lot of confusion and frustrations but we made it!  And we'll survive this upgrade too!

There is still a lot of work going on behind the scenes to get this place back in full working order. Signatures are missing, some other features too... don't worry, we're working to rebuild all of that around the clock.  It could take up to a week to complete this. I initially was going to keep the site closed until we got everything working but I felt that wasn't fair to you all. So thank you for your patience in the days to come!

Staff Changes
It is with much sadness that I have to announce that we have three staff members who will be stepping down from their roles here on the Christian Teen Forums. @T.O.W.R., @JoyfulFleur, and @kb5462 have each decided that they can no longer serve on the staff here due to a world outside the internet, other commitments and personal reasons. I want to thank them all publicly for their contributions over the years and it has truly been a blessing to work with you all. This site surely would have been lacking without them and they will each be missed. Will you please join me and thanking them for their service and wishing them the best?

As you may know, this leaves this community with only three staff members.... myself, @Yoda, and @Nicene Nerd. I have the utmost confidence in this team that we'll be able to handle anything that comes our way while we figure out what we need to do with future staffing. Everybody please be nice so they don't have to work too hard! :)

Thank you, everyone, for your continued involvement on this site. If you have any questions about anything, ask away. I'm here to answers any questions you have!
