Mark, just click the blue question mark icon on the top right of the text box you're writing in, and it'll give you the whole range of linking and formatting options.

This morning I completed a move of our database. Apologies for the inconvenience caused. This change should improve stability of the website.

Thanks, Peter. I had never even noticed any instability... You do great work behind the scenes!

I'll be making a few more performance updates over the next few weeks before building the new features as part of our "Milestone 2" update... Stay tuned...

I've just made another wee upgrade. I will make a major upgrade next week.

I will post info about planned downtime soon.

Thanks for your patience!

OK, I apologize for the long period of downtime today. We had a server emergency this morning which required me to move the entire site to a new server. This took longer than I expected, but it has great benefits. I ended up doing next week's major upgrade today!

The server software has been updated to the latest versions and we are using some new and efficient technologies that will speed things along on The D-Word. Enjoy!

Thanks Peter, and though I haven't conducted a poll, this probably mirrors the appreciation of the full stable...! (By the way, it does feel faster).

It does feel much, much faster now, doesn't it? (But maybe that's because those people who usually spend their whole day on The D-Word simply couldn't log on during the downtime.)

well done, peter. thanks for improvising on your feet.

Turns out it takes a bit longer for some people to get back on... This is because the new server for d-word.com needs to be propagated around the net first. No need to worry, and nothing has been lost! Good night...

I haven't been able to connect at all today..Still can't through my own access point.
I'm borrowing a neighbour's wifi in order to write this. Weird.

don't know if this relates to you, joe, but when i typed in "d-word.com", all i got was a page that said "It Works!" when i typed in "www.d-word.com", then i got in without any problem...

Hi, I have noticed that other people have more than one URL listed under website on their profile. I too have several URLs that I think would interest the community. How can I do this?

Ben Kempas

There's a field "Other website" when you're editing your profile.

Also, you can just put URLs into your bio.

I don't get that field – is it only for members? I'm planning to apply to be a member, but wanted to get my profile together first.

I don't actually know... but I can assure you that the number of websites won't determine eligibility for membership... :-)
