Well, as many of you know our good friend Bill has parted ways with The Garden Helper website and he's gifted AGF to myself to keep it "in the family" so to speak (as it doesn't really make much sense to keep renting out the old server as it's not really needed).

We experienced a smidgen of downtime last night (2/15) as I moved the domain to my account and moved the site to a new server; it'll take a while to fully propagate for all users all over the world, but if you're seeing this message then you're on the right site.

I'll be around as I always have; generally a more background role, but I'll try to step out of my cave into the realm that is public more :P...

And yes, I renamed the "The Garden Helper" facebook page that was only really there for downtime notices to "A Gardeners Forum" last night while I was shuffling everything around...

Is there anything you guys would like to see added to the site/forum by chance?

Some of you may have noticed that a lot of the Avatars are currently down; I'm working on fixing this (it effects ~2k user accounts). The Avatars affected are located on thegardenhelper so they just ended up getting nuked by the new owners.

Ok, the avatars, for the most part, should be fixed... I need to work on signature buttons and such at some point today but at least the missing images should be dealt with now...

Well, unfortunately, I had to upgrade my server to accommodate this site, so to offset costs I added an ad to the spot between the first and second posts which is generally the most popular spot for advertisements on a forum; if you have any ideas I'd be more than open to hearing suggestions...

well not to worry about the ads james---we had them before, but just on the sides--I should think we will adjust to the changes.

and yes you do have to pay the bills after all.

Thanks Junie; before the majority of the income through ad's for Bill came from TGH; this isn't the case here though, since TGH is under new ownership as well... I'm trying to do my best to not change much around here, but re-cooping new costs on a restricted income unfortunately has to be done and I thank you for your understanding :).

To make Cindy's job easier I've automated the "top poster" images and moved it to below your user name; I'll need to make some coding to take and nuke the ones from the signature lines however...

Perhaps; they'll need to be 100px and below if I do however (which would be increasing the maximum size here)

I'm not entirely sure how to handle signatures; my script for some reason dies on updating them, so I can't automate the editing of all signature lines lol... Will need to revisit this in the future I suppose...

I need to change URLs from TGH on them to AGF and now that post images are handled via the member title system they can be removed from sig lines as well... Hmm...

I've been looking into a "Missing EMail" problem with GMail users; it'd seem that some forum emails are triggering their spam filters and email is being (incorrectly) marked as SPAM... I've gone through and filled out a support request with them and I hope to have it sorted shortly... Which hopefully doesn't mean a prolonged period of time...

Probably just because it's on my server versus the old one where there was little control over the environment...
