Are we all new members now?

I had to sign up to keep the user name I have had for over six years? I'm not a NEW member!

Also, where are my pms?

I've been here since the site started. :-/

I'm just glad I got my old name back. I can totally see some troll taking it and pretending to be me.

Not a fan of the verification thingie that made me watch a progressive ad in order to start my account though.

Its not the first time we've lost our PMs but I think we lost more this time than last.

Interestingly, a private message from the Administrator indicates that he/she has been a member since 2010, with 62 posts, while our membership and history are non-existent.

HolyCow, the site is now owned by Vertical Scope, a Toronto company. It operates the site through a US subsidiary.

VS owns and operates over 900 forum sites. I would imagine your user name is valid across all of their sites, thus the 2010 history for the administrator.

Same place as your Saved Doctors list, probably some or many doctor ratings, and the user database.

Welcome to a Web 2.0 supported Web 1.0 site!

Is that a good or bad thing?

Truthfully that remains to be seen. I mean, Mic can recite factoids that he's found through google until the cows come home, but the truth is that nobody but the new owners know where we are headed until we get there.

For myself, I am a bit concerned about the site being owned by a Canadian owned since Canada's libel and slander laws are less forgiving than those of the US.
