    I remember the last time I darkened the door of the Dark Side. it was the day i was Banneddd...... forrrrr..... liiiffffe. I have changed IP addresses many times (and I travel a lot) and have NEVER lurked over there since "The Incident."

    but, truly, why would I want to? MY family is here.

    Rafi and Lisa, this is interesting because our DLC family (and the decline of posts and traffic on the board) were the subject of much of Kim's and my conversation yesterday.

    We don't WANT all of our crazy dog lady stuff on FB, and I LIKE my DLC just the way it is, thank you VERY much. We are afraid that it may go away. And we don't want it to.

    I am sorry to hear DBB is going away, because as has been said, there is a lot of knowledge there. And here.

    I've been making an effort to post here more often, and Savannah has been VERY obliging by being into something or doing something entertaining on a consistent basis.

    Assuming P'nut gets better quickly. And I am confident she will. We are going to go for the upgrade. So the DLC will be down over Christmas, but then we will aim to be up and better than ever We can start recruiting and hopefully grow the board to a good size.

    Totally, NDR, Rafi made a video for Guild Wars 2 over the weekend. He had over 2000 views just for a 60 second video. People are out there and want content. We just need to get them here and participating.

    Plus, we need search engines to work a bit better for us. Hoping the upgrade will help with that too!

    Here is what I found

    DBB Not Going Away, But Some Changes Are Coming.

    The DBB will not be closing, but there will be a few changes. The biggest one will be a change in domain. More info on that very soon.

    Sorry to alarm everyone, but we decided we couldn't let the DBB go.

    Please check back shortly for more info.

    So how much does the upgrade cost, financially?

    There is no way we members could EVER repay you, Lisa and Rafi, for the time that you put in on DLC, and I know that you do what you do for the love of the breed and the love of the family that has been created here for the love of the breed...

    I know of several members here who would be happy to chip in for the upgrade, myself included. I know that Patrice and I have talked about doing so, and Kim and I just yesterday.

    Spill it. How much is needed, and what's the best way to chip in? PayPal?

    and if this part of the conversation needs to move to Members Only, that's cool with me.

    If the DLC ever disappeared, I'd go into a serious decline. And I mean serious. I've been so insanely busy the last while between house and work and moving and work and teaching and work that I've just not had much time to post. But I'm around many many times a day. (I've got a bunch of pics on my camera of the kids doing various stuff including being introduced to their new digs that I just haven't had time to put up yet .)

    I refuse to put anything personal up on FB...you'll note that I'll share a lot of existing stuff, but there is virtually nothing up there re: me or the kids. I hate FB because of its attempts at world domination and lack of privacy. I'm on there because most of the rescue stuff I do/belong to is on there, but I kinda resent it . Still......

    (And why didn't someone just say that the DBB was the Darkside? THAT I get )

    DLC forever, and I'm happy to chip in financially too. This is family. Pure and simple.

    It's all good guys. Rafi sold some stuff on ebay. I purchased the upgrade today, using his paypal I was nice enough to send him a confirmation email of the purchase. LOL

    It's coming....It is just going to be a HUGE project. Seriously, upgrading is worse than starting from scratch because our databases are ummm....vast.

    Money part is taken care of...just need more rayz for Miss Nut.

    Rayz for the Nut are a given, my sweet friend.
