Attention On Board
Get it, on Board? On the TVCH Board)

A couple of announcements for everyone. We are going to be making a couple of changes to the website and message board in the next couple of days. Both of these changes are to help the board server performance during this much busier time of year.

Those changes are:

1) Big Brother area will be viewable without membership. Posting will, of course, still require an active account.

Member only areas take a little more processing to serve than an area the general public may read, so this should help keep the board running smoothly.

2) "Recent Active Discussions" from the front page will be disabled until after the Big Brother season is over.

The front page feature for "Recent Active Discussions" has been misused in the past to track when messages in certain threads of Big Brother were posted in rather than the existing 'Search' tool or simply looking into the thread to see. Because of the way this feature works, it takes a considerable amount of server resources every time it runs. By turning this feature off, we should see a little better performance on the board overall. Of course, it isn't really an issue during the 'off' season, but now it is.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause any of you but please know we are really trying to look out for what is best overall for the board.

And while we have your attention.

Reminders about board policy

Keep the following in mind when posting these types of items:

You must provide credit to the source of the material, and a link (if not a live feed/screen cap). If it is a screen cap, please identify it as such.

Do NOT post full articles. Post the headline, the author and the name of the publication, an excerpt only, and a link to the source.

These rules will be *strictly* enforced.

Thank you for your understanding and thank you for being a part of this great community. Now let's get ready to enjoy another season of our favorite reality show.
