Over the next several weeks we will be making small changes to the message board administration tools as we bring them up to date with the rest of the message board technology and code. The admin tools will work the same as they do today with only a few minor changes aimed at streamlining processes and making the tools more efficient.
We don't anticipate encountering issues as we launch each updated tool but should you run across something that appears to be broken we encourage you to report it to the Rootsweb HelpDesk, http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/form1.html
We also added a link to a new board administration resource-the Message Board Administration Information page, http://boards.rootsweb.com/admin/admininfo.aspx
. This page provides a guide to help you know what resources are available to you, and how you can best administer your boards.
The Message Board Administrator Information pages also include Board Administration Guidelines that you are required to abide by to remain an admin in good standing. We encourage you to review the Board Admin Info pages frequently.
I appreciate your patience as we work to bring the administrator tools up-to-date and want to thank you for the time and effort you put in to help the message boards be a valuable and effective research tool!
