Sup! glad to see this place is still alive for now! Figures when I'm considering dipping my toes back into the hobby EB is in danger of taking a crap. Props to all those trying to keep it together.
Oh snap, whatup Mert!

The site is running better today than I've seen in many, many months (years?). Whatever the Russians did, keep it. :clap:

Sorry about the slight outage last night. That was on our side, not the old flakiness. Just the team working through some stuff in preparation for the move and it took a wrong turn. But we've taken steps so that that doesn't happen again.
As an update of sorts, we're making progress on getting the site moved. Finally was able to get good backups of everything, which was hard before since we didn't have access to anything. But we've managed to get that now, and work through all the complications of moving the site. As you might expect, this patchwork of a site has a lot of moving pieces and turning wheels and we're working through the setup. Won't be long, though, until we're off in greener pastures, and can then properly focus on and assess the site updates.
Again, sorry for the blip last night.
So it goes...

Does successful completion of the trainee program look good on college applications?

It has been a while since I posted on EB. Hell, I rarely posted in the first place but I visited the site daily for years and it has been disheartening to experience the decline of EB in recent years. Very happy to see that folks are stepping up to make some positive changes and thank you for that! The site at least resembles its former self from 10 years ago and that is saying something compared to the last year or so. Thanks to all that are dedicating their time and effort.
