Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am sure you are aware of this, but thought I would mention it just in case. The forums, and the site in general have been very slow, and pages even time out. I have been on regularly in the past week. I have no doubt it has a lot to do with the fact that there is anywhere from 130 -300 people on at any given time.
