    Hello everyone… Chris and Kristyn and I are brainstorming on things to get done and in what order and who else is doing to do what, but this is going to take some time.

    We will be posting lists of things to do that need volunteers and other stuff as we think of it.

    Right now, this is the order I think we are doing things in the near term.

    1. Set up staff. This will be a bit fluid until everything is done as volunteers for specific tasks need to be given permissions during this interim time. The specific hierarchies might not be set up right away, i.e., moderators, deans, admins…. We are not going to automatically put everyone back on the list as there was inactive staff. If you were on staff, and you show back up, you are on. This allows us to see our needs. I was kinda out of it for a while in the past few years, and my memory is getting old, so please forgive me if I don't remember what position everyone had.

    2. Set up forum areas. We will weed out the dead forum areas from the past list. This is not a good time to suggest new ones. If someone can get together a list of the forums, with the captions under them, that would be helpful. A volunteer to write the sub forum descriptions and guidelines would be helpful.

    3. Set up the appearance templates. This is an area that may take a while as boom's hard drive crashed right before we did, and he is searching to see what image files he still has. If he doesn't have them, we may be doing a redesign.

      It depends upon whether you have a good memory of what the old ones were, i.e. the forum descriptions and guidelines. Trying to keep things in that area pretty much as they were. It probably will be the area head mods that are going to have the best memory of that.

                  Awesome, IC, that was very helpful. Do you know if any of the forum guidelines were archived? They were stickies inside each forum area that had the topic outlines and forum specific rules.

                  That list will be very helpful to only to put back the active forums…. i.e. such as until we get post of the day set back up, we won't set that area back up.
