You might have noticed a new link on the top menu – the BBS Zone – which is now open for business and your postings.

One of the reasons for transitioning to the new All Spin Zone home was to enhance the interactivity of the community. I considered several options, such as diaries / sub-blogs for ASZ members (ala dKos, MyDD, etc.), and ended up deciding that the diary model was not the easiest way to give members the ability to post their own thoughts on topics of their choosing.

Over the past month, I’™ve been putting together a BBS system using phpBB, and it’™s finally come fully together in the last few days. The ASZ writers will still be posting primarily on the ASZ Blog, but the addition of the BBS gives all of us a lot of flexibility that we didn’™t have previously.

So, take the BBS Zone for a spin – it’™s a great way to post your own articles and thoughts, and share interactive discussions with other ZoneBots on topics of interest to you. Please note that you have to create a new registration at the BBS Zone to participate – your ASZ Blog membership does not carry over to the BBS Zone.

Above all, enjoy the new toy!
