    "It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you
    Without a strong rhyme to step to"

    The Zone is back.

    We certainly learned a lot during our summer vacation... which included keeping intact and moving over 2 million posts and 75,000 users from the old location to the new. We always felt it was important to maintain the nearly 15 years worth of history on this site. I wish it would have gone smoother, but here we are.

    You'll see continued work on the site in the coming days and weeks as we fine-tune. If you have complaints or suggestions, I'm happy to hear them.

    All the best,
    Chris

    Better get control of the spam situation ASAP, or the 'new and improved CAA Zone' will die before it gets started!

    wow...really?

    Almost every active caazone board is over at CSNBBS. I suggest everyone come over if you haven't already.

    Sorry guys. Hopefully we have a handle on it now. I've never seen such a flood before.

    I know everyone has already found another board or using this one, but I made a new one like a month ago when this one was down. Check it out if you want http://caa.boards.net

    I can appreciate folks' frustrations of not having the site available for an extended period. Believe me, I hoped that wasn't going to be the case. However, we're now on our own server, for $100 less per month. It was essential for us to downsize - we had grown to a point while VCU/ODU/Mason were still part of the CAA - and without that traffic we had to scale down to a more affordable set up.

    Now that the move is done, I know we've lost some folks. I intend to win them back and new fans with superior service and features that a free board doesn't necessarily provide. We will add new features every few weeks that will make a difference. Other sites spinning off of CAAZone has been happening for years, and we always viewed it as inevitable. I'm happy that fans are able to build boards for themselves, but I do feel that a central hub of fans from all schools will continue to have a place.

    Please join us as we move forward into a new era of the 'Zone! Spread the word that we're back!

    Cool! Being able to pick different themes would nice, too. This bold red/white/blue is kind of hard on the eyes...
