Important Announcements

Beauties -

Most obviously, we have finally upgraded and we have a new look! There is work to be done yet but that's what a forum is - a work in progress with the members doing most of the work. Right away we are going to be putting some "how-to" guides together so that the use of our new avatars, changing themes, and a few other new things are easier to understand. Look for these posts in Tips, Tricks, & Help. Don't hesitate to ask questions there either. While we work on that please remember:  It's the content that matters, not the pretty bells and whistles.

Less obviously but even more important, I invited Canie to become an administrator and she graciously accepted! I can't sing Canie's praises loudly enough. Since she started working with me at the very beginning of The Timeless Beauty she has been the single most invaluable member of the team. During my extended illness it was Canie who kept TTB moving and she also kept me in the loop in the kindest, gentlest way. Her talents and skills may not be as visible to you as to me but they are formidable. I have utter and complete trust in her to act in ways that are in the best interests of the forum, always setting aside her own personal feelings.

Please take a moment to congratulate her on her well-deserved promotion!

New Announcement

I just received word from the company that hosts TTB on its servers that they will be moving TTB to an upgraded server. They did not specify when but did mention that I would be notified within 48 hours of when the process begins. I will keep you informed as I am able. Of course they are trying to do this "seamlessly" but they mention the possibility of brief outages. In my experience with server shifts of this nature, such outages usually are quite brief -- say 5-30 minutes. Sometimes there are multiple brief outages.  On rare occasions I've seen a transition go completely awry and require many hours to recover.

We'll hope for the best but if you are unable to log in normally in the near future you now know that you can attribute it to a temporary hardware issue and that TTB will be back up as soon as the transition is completed.

Update on 6/6 at 1:30PM

I am able to access TTB. SilverCrown is not so I suspect others are not able to as well.

The site will come fully back online but it might take some time. If those who are able to log in hear from friends who cannot, please let them know that they should keep trying.

Thanks.

New Update - 6/6 at 2:15PM

I am at last able to access TTB so I hope that means that everyone else can as well.

If anyone hears of someone with problems, have them write to me at silvercrown (at) thetimelessbeauty.com.

Thanks for your patience.

Thank you very much, milla!  Honestly, it takes both of us (SilverCrown and I) working together to get everything done.  Of course, it helps having the nicest members to work with, too. :)
