Over the last week or so hundreds of you may have received pending forum membership notices as well as declined for membership notices. This has happened at least twice. Most of those notices went out to folks that are already members and those that have never applied which included subscribers to the magazine. These notices were the result of some testing that was going on with new forum software which interacts with our subscriber base and during those tests we found that inadvertently the software was sending these notices to you. Please understand that this was not intended and the code in the software that was generating these notices has been fixed. Also, this was completely internal so no compromise of your information occurred and the site is still secure.
I had several calls and emails from members and non-members / subscribers that were concerned and confused which confirmed that it would be appropriate to make this announcement. Please accept our apology for any confusion and concern this may have created. We are growing so fast that software updates were necessary to keep up with the increasing needs and services on the forum which will result in it being an even better experience for all of us. Unfortunately, glitches and bumps in the road happen and we had one!
Thanks for your support and understanding!
