Not a poster was stirring; it didn't seem right.
Big changes were made with the utmost of care,
But the posters all wept since our forums weren't there.
When we couldn't log in and we trudged to our beds,
The admins stayed up, all scratching their heads.
All through that night and through the next day
They typed and they clicked and they toiled away.
When the site came back up, there arose such a clatter:
"We can finally log in!" Nothing else seemed to matter.
We scrambled to see and logged in with a flash,
(And hey, this new layout does seem pretty fast).
But once I was in, my glee turned to frowns:
"Where the heck are my smilies? Is the Break Room still down?"
We grumbled and groused for the whole site to see,
(Changing stuff on us nurses brings out OCD!)
And then, in a twinkling, I heard from the staff,
They read all our comments, and did not even laugh!
One by one they responded, and worked out the kinks,
They took our ideas with a nod and a wink.
Soon Brian appeared, a right jolly old elf,
And I smiled when he posted, in spite of myself!
He made us feel better about the new stuff,
And assured us that things would be back up to snuff.
And slowly but surely, we saw some good things:
"My posts auto-save? What joy this will bring!"
They even changed backgrounds from white to soft blue,
Which fell on my eyes with a more pleasing hue.
I think, after all, that I'm coming around,
The site may look different, but friends still abound.
And that, in the end, is most precious to me,
'Cause allnurses buddies turn "I" into"we."
I'm glad for you folks and our new AN home,
I'm glad to be back, with forums to roam.
And I heard Brian say, as he surveyed the site,
"Happy posting to all! And to all a good night!"

i have to say though, joe v did most of the work on the upgrade, i must say, he's done a fabulous job, he deserves kudos.... or should that be "like"
all the wonderful users, admins and staff really helped out finding bugs and helping us get them all fixed or at least put on a todo list
thanks to all and to all a good night!Last edit by brian on Jan 5, '12
