EFFECTIVE 14 Nov. 2012 PRIVATE MESSAGING HAS BEEN RE-ENABLED. IF YOU RECEIVE A SUSPICIOUS DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS AND PLEASE REPORT TO THE ADMINISTRATOR FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION.
This is the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's Message Board. Wright enthusiasts can post questions and comments, and other people visiting the site can respond.
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, *-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time they see fit.
Why do I have to log on twice every time that I access this message board when I want to post a message? Am I doing something wrong?
Basically this behaviour is attributable to a know-nothing bunch of administrators, who know sweet FA about PHPBB code, or how to configure a Bulletin Board properly. I bet there aren't even any proper backups - so if the server went south, then when it all came back online (probably 3 months later, instead of 3 hours), all the posts would be lost.
Oh - we'd probably all have to register again too.
This is what happens when an owner (presumably "Savewright") won't allow the community access to the nuts and bolts of the site. There are several forum stalwarts who would be more than capable of running this BB correctly, (i.e. actually moderating for a start!) and yet the evidence we see is that the owners really don't seem to give a rat's ass about the place.

Keep in mind, this is not a wealthy organization. The office is overwhelmed with work and unable to afford more hired help. Patience is a virtue.
