It will be back up shortly, along with the search feature! Vlad and the coders have worked diligently on bringing the search function back, only this time it will be better than ever. That means we can all meticulously search for any detail our handbag-loving-heart desires! Stay tuned :mrgreen:

In other news, I will be flying back to the States tomorrow. Things will be back to ‘normal’ Monday, which regular posting, new information, mid-month giveaways, and more designer interviews!

      I understand your frustration! It is not just you! But the forum is massive; in fact, one of the top 80 most active forums on the web. So really, it is not that uncommon to have downtime and maintenance time. We do our best to keep it up as much as we can. We are looking to adding more servers also, though we are already at 8 servers.

      Patience, it will be up as soon as possible!!

      I understand your frustration, but with all due respect, you do not understand what it takes to operate a forum of this size. With 6 million posts and counting, we rely on custom solutions which take time to develop and test.

      Please have a little more patience. We’re trying.

    The search function has been missed tremendously. Thank you for keeping us updated as originally it was suppose to be up a week ago. I do understand that this is a major forum, but keeping us happy, keeps us coming back and if we shop through your site I believe you make some good money. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks again!!!

    Thanks for all your hard work, megs and vlad. I hope that everyone reading this knows that any down time the forum has is necessary for better features to be added. To those who are complaining, my only comment is that perhaps it’s time to step away from the computer? Get a breath of fresh air, watch a movie, or better yet, call your MOM since tomorrow is Mother’s Day. :mrgreen:

    Safe and adventurous travels, Megs!
