    Question question

    The emails we receive when we are subscribed to a thread, can we reply to them? Will the reply post to the forum like a regular message board? Thanks

    Thanks Lynn. if not this would be an interesting feature, to be able to reply and it posts as if you were in the forum. Would make it a lot easier and then we could always jump on the sight to see what we are missing. I'm sure we will since we all seem to be pretty addicted to this site LOL

    No, they get lost in No Womans Land.

    I actually spent a great deal of time working on implementing this feature when I closed the discussion list (and moved it here). The problem is, this type of feature causes a HUGE load on the server, which is already strained.

    Unless something drastically changes with the Revenue on the site, etc, it's just not something I can afford to implement. I've even thought of doing a membership fee, but that defeats the purpose of the site, how can you get out of debt by getting more bills to pay, lol.

    If things improve financially, I will take a look back into it, but for now, this one is just simmering on the backburner of the b101 stove.

    I was a bit confused when the changeover happened, but have happily figured out things. If it saves Liss money to run things, then I'm all for her new format.

    Thanks for keeping this site running!
