At its Feb. 16 meeting, the Friends of White Flint Board of Directors approved changes in the FLOG. Almost all of these will be “behind-the-scenes,” and what readers see will remain largely the same.
But the FLOG will be “migrating” to a higher version of its underlying program software, including more security, and additional features. The change is driven in part by the FLOG’s dramatic expansion in readership over the last two years. The FLOG registered more than 504,000 “page views” in 2010, making it one of the most widely-read local blogs in Maryland, but also attracting pressure by spammers on the technology behind the blog. We hope to be able to re-open public registration once again after additional security measures are implemented; you can still register by sending me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, the shift may also cause some slow-downs in posting (as in the last two weeks), and some other problems. Please bear with us through this up-grade, and thank you for your participation and support.
