The Blueboard will be DOWN!

The Blueboard will be DOWN March 28th!
On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Blueboard will be down beginning at 10:00 AM Pacific time in order to change it over to a fully responsive theme. This means the entire look of the board will change somewhat. This new theme will allow much easier access to everyone on mobile devices. The Blueboard will be down for up to 24 hours on March 28, 2017, to allow for all of the changes that need to take place.

Please do not panic if you can't find all of your usual features on the new theme. Almost everything you are used to using will still be there, some things will just be in a different place. We realize it will take a little getting used to, but making the Blueboard more secure against spammers and hackers and also making it easier to use on mobile devices will be worth the small inconvenience of learning a few new "tricks" on the board.

Feel free to ask here, in this thread, or on the FAQ board "HELP! How to Use the Blueboard" if you have any questions about this new theme upgrade, either before it goes live or after it has been installed on March 28, 2017.

Note: You may have seen this notice before. We had originally planned to install this new theme in January, but because of some glitches in the theme (it didn't want to play nice with our database) we made the decision to postpone its installation until all the bugs were eradicated. That has now been accomplished, and we feel confident that you will find this new, fully responsive theme to be a great improvement - especially for those who use tablets and phones to access the Blueboard.
