Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

NewMarsMember * gmail.com portal is open for business.

There was/were one incoming traffic item(s) at the Portal this morning. No outgoing message(s) was/were sent.

Occasionally vendors send updates on software or new features on offer.  That was NOT the case today. Dropbox is offering to increase free disk storage to 16 Gb in return for enlisting friends to use Dropbox.  That is a hefty increase from current 2 Gb.
If a NewMars member decides to open a DropBox account please let us know so we can apply for the offer of increased storage.

Google announced that they have extended their policy on inactive accounts. Now they will wait two years before deleting an account.

NewMars.com is back online after an unscheduled outage for extended maintenance. Work is under way to maintain the site.

An Email Outreach campaign to former NewMars members is underway. One member will be reviewed per day, for 3+ years.

Recordings of the 25th Anniversary Conference are now available on YouTube.

We are also happy to welcome former members back into the active community.  It has been brought to my attention that a number of former members are marked as "banned".  In many cases, this marking is a limitation of FluxBB, which is the forum software.

Because of the onslaught of thousands upon thousands of spammers over 20+ years, the decision was made to close off access to inactive accounts.  Unfortunately, the only mechanism available is the "banning" tool.  If you are an older member and you find your account has been banned, it may have been locked to prevent hacker access.  You can ask SpaceNut to reactivate the account. See the procedure below.  Those who were banned for inappropriate behavior may also apply.  SpaceNut will then have the opportunity to evaluate your application.

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

***

We have 18,370 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members.

A quality assurance run is finished, to find any posts not accessible upon lookup.
Current stopping point is 217000 - the next scan will be run at 218000
Current active post is 217256

For existing registered members who have lost your password ... If you remember the email address you used to register, you can request a recovery email at that address.  If you no longer have the email available (as could happen over 20+ years) just write to NewMarsMember * gmail.com  email address. Your request will be forwarded to SpaceNut, who has the tools available to assist as needed.

For all ... we really ** are ** looking for members who want to make a difference by helping others with projects, or providing leadership on new projects.  We have a ready supply of folks who can and will make comments and offer suggestions.  We don't need more folks in that specialty.  We ** do ** need folks who can and ** will ** help project leaders already trying to achieve something in the real world.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Because of the onslaught of thousands upon thousands of spammers over 20+ years, the decision was made to close off access to inactive accounts.  Unfortunately, the only mechanism available is the "banning" tool.  If you are an older member and you find your account has been banned, it may have been locked to prevent hacker access.  You can ask SpaceNut to reactivate the account. See the procedure below.  Those who were banned for inappropriate behavior may also apply.  SpaceNut will then have the opportunity to evaluate your application.

Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

NewMarsMember * gmail.com portal is open for business.

There was/were no incoming traffic item(s) at the Portal this morning. No outgoing message(s) was/were sent.

Occasionally vendors send updates on software or new features on offer.  That was NOT the case today. Dropbox is offering to increase free disk storage to 16 Gb in return for enlisting friends to use Dropbox.  That is a hefty increase from current 2 Gb.
If a NewMars member decides to open a DropBox account please let us know so we can apply for the offer of increased storage.

Google announced that they have extended their policy on inactive accounts. Now they will wait two years before deleting an account.

NewMars.com is back online after an unscheduled outage for extended maintenance. Work is under way to maintain the site.

An Email Outreach campaign to former NewMars members is underway. One member will be reviewed per day, for 3+ years.

Recordings of the 25th Anniversary Conference are now available on YouTube.

Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

NewMarsMember * gmail.com portal is open for business.

There was/were no incoming traffic item(s) at the Portal this morning. No outgoing message(s) was/were sent.

Occasionally vendors send updates on software or new features on offer.  That was NOT the case today. Dropbox is offering to increase free disk storage to 16 Gb in return for enlisting friends to use Dropbox.  That is a hefty increase from current 2 Gb.
If a NewMars member decides to open a DropBox account please let us know so we can apply for the offer of increased storage.

Google announced that they have extended their policy on inactive accounts. Now they will wait two years before deleting an account.

NewMars.com is back online after an unscheduled outage for extended maintenance. Work is under way to maintain the site.

An Email Outreach campaign to former NewMars members is underway. One member will be reviewed per day, for 3+ years.

Recordings of the 25th Anniversary Conference are now available on YouTube.

We are also happy to welcome former members back into the active community.  It has been brought to my attention that a number of former members are marked as "banned".  In many cases, this marking is a limitation of FluxBB, which is the forum software.

Because of the onslaught of thousands upon thousands of spammers over 20+ years, the decision was made to close off access to inactive accounts.  Unfortunately, the only mechanism available is the "banning" tool.  If you are an older member and you find your account has been banned, it may have been locked to prevent hacker access.  You can ask SpaceNut to reactivate the account. See the procedure below.  Those who were banned for inappropriate behavior may also apply.  SpaceNut will then have the opportunity to evaluate your application.

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

***

We have 18,370 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members.

A quality assurance run is finished, to find any posts not accessible upon lookup.
Current stopping point is 218000 - the next scan will be run at 219000`
Current active post is 218191

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

For existing registered members who have lost your password ... If you remember the email address you used to register, you can request a recovery email at that address.  If you no longer have the email available (as could happen over 20+ years) just write to NewMarsMember * gmail.com  email address. Your request will be forwarded to SpaceNut, who has the tools available to assist as needed.

For all ... we really ** are ** looking for members who want to make a difference by helping others with projects, or providing leadership on new projects.  We have a ready supply of folks who can and will make comments and offer suggestions.  We don't need more folks in that specialty.  We ** do ** need folks who can and ** will ** help project leaders already trying to achieve something in the real world.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
