- 1/3/2015: Groups and Forums have been glitchy. If it already exists they seem to work well with each other but for now new Groups for new Forums are not performing correctly; pending solution. – corrected 1/6/15
- 2/15/2015: Image galleries open and there is not visible means of getting out of them. Solution: use the ESC key or click in the surrounding gray space. The shadow box software is flawed and there is no fix for now.
