  5. Salam Alaikum, It is always such a hard hit when a member of ShiaChat passes away, almost feels like a family member has left us and really puts things into perspective regarding how real the people behind these comments really are. Ina lilla wa ina ilaihi raji3oon

    Salams.. Just upgraded to the latest forum software and we're trying one more trick up our sleeves tonight. If that doesnt work, we're going to purchase a new server and migrate.
  13. What just happened :O!?

    Salams All. So I've been on this forum since.. um.. 1998 and although I'm just in the background, I support, salute and commend the hard work of the few who have taken on the job to sustain this site after the founder have essentially "left". Its is not an easy job. Funny, change since day one has always been controversial and since day 1, no one ever left a site due to "change". It is the LACK of change that makes this site stale and makes people shut it down from their lives. I see people bringing up the notion of change management and user acceptance and what not, relating this site to some sort of an enterprise or COTS or a paid service. It is not. We're a group of administrators and moderators that provide countless hours for free in the service of this community. Do we make mistakes? sure. Are there shortcomings? Sure. Can we do a better job communicating, testing and support the site? Of course, but this is best effort and the quality you're getting is just that. Although I as the founder do not agree with some of the changes, be it color or forum merging that happened lately, I still support the effort and applaud all the volunteers. 20 years later, this site is still a work in progress and it is only with the efforts of the hard working volunteers and the feedback of our valued members that this site continued to be serving today.
  14. Salams.. New chat is up. Still testing but look promising for sure.
