Hi everybody,

First of all, I hope you are all safe and well in this awful, uncertain time.

As I'm sure many of you will be aware, WBB has become much quieter in recent years. This is perhaps down to the increase in social media being used for recovery support, or people seeking help elsewhere, or - I hope - members recovering and moving on. In any event, over time the WBB site has become increasingly unstable and neither Spender nor I have the coding skills to fix it.

We are considering rebuilding the site on a new platform, using modern forum tech which will resolve these problems. We intend to leave this site archived, so members can return to look at threads and journals, and can copy and paste posts to the new site if they feel they want to replicate them. Unfortunately, given the type of platform we're on and the sheer quantity of posts amassed over the years, we will not be able to move entire threads over.

I speak for myself when I say I am immensely grateful for WBB. I genuinely believe it saved my life. I owe huge amounts to the members, the admins and mods, and especially to Sharon for founding the site.

WBB has always been a sum of its members. As such, we want your thoughts and comments on this suggested course of action. WBB was a huge part of many of our lives, so please do share what you think and any questions you may have.


Are you going to show up for duty, serve this woman and honour her beauty?

Hi VeGa,

Thank you for the work you have put in here. I am glad your life exists and share your gratitude for what this place has been.

Are you able to clarify what archiving the site means?
