In Response to Re: brownie points:
I am beginning to agree with everyone's complaints now. Before this, I have stuck up for VBB all the way. Didn't worry about not staying signed in (I shut down my computer every night), was getting at least some points regularly, and firmly believed VBB would do the right thing and take care of its readers. Hopefully I am not wrong and these things will eventually come to pass, but one would like to think that VBB would post a notice to its faithful followers and say they are in the midst of revamping its website and at the very least, apologize for brownie points not being regularly credited to our accounts like they should be. If VBB was really smart they would award all regular readers an award of at least a token amount of points to show their appreciation. I don't see, or cannot find anything like that here. I also can't seem to find several things I used to like about VBB anymore. It is a bit frustrating but I am a very positive minded person and I am assuming that VBB is working on the website and that is why it seems like all you do is go in circles when you do searches on the VBB portion of the website. I will give it some time before I start to make any major complaints

How much time do you think they need? It has taken a month just to get the sign in fixed!! Shutting down your computer every night should not effect whether you are still signed in or not. The site uses your IP address to keep you signed in.
I still get knocked off/out of the site and even though I do not care about the points, I have noticed they go up and down worse than the price of gas. Too many things do not work and you can only add so many patches before they begin to overlap and mess up other things. Even the recently uploaded recipes stayed for almost a month and two of them are still the same.
I would like to know what type of survey was given before this new site was put up. All I saw was a notice on the old boards the week before they disappeared. I managed to get a few things saved but, not enough time to do all of my favorite recipes. I don't think I will get them back.
