1. Level 2 is the condition in which everyone with a screen name beginning with letters A-N
are systematically hunted down and their programs are derezzed.

2. I'd like to remind everyone that my actual screen name is StrangeDu.
Please make a note of that!

3. Got enough plastic sheeting, duct tape and bottled water?
If so, don't worry. You should be fine.

6. My dear nadine_mn!
This is Level 2:

Some forum features are currently unavailable (Level 2) (Jan 21st 2008)
You may have noticed that some features of Democratic Underground are currently not working. This is intentional and a result of the website experiencing an unusually high level of traffic currently.

Democratic Underground has dozens of features that we've programmed into our software over the years that, while important, are considered extras because they are not required for DU to run smoothly. We are very proud of all these extra features we provide to our members, but when our servers get backed up with heavy traffic we have to make difficult decisions and progressively turn off certain extra features to reduce the stress on our servers. The alternative is a DU that is very difficult at best to navigate due to overwhelmed servers slowing everything down.

These features will only remain turned off temporarily until our traffic dies back down to a normal level. Currently, we are on Level 2. The features that are turned off at Level 2 are the following:

* Advanced search
* Hide thread feature
* Signature lines
* Avatars
* RSS/XML feed for Latest Breaking News
* Forum hiding on the Latest page
* Expanded threads mode
* Ignoring new threads by author

Again, we apologize for having to do this, but it is necessary and much better than the alternative.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,
The DU Administrators

10. These are normally shown on the Discuss Page...
The page that lists all the newest threads in the discussion forums...

It's in a little box with red letters over on the right side, near the top...

If you look, you'll see it!

:hi:

8. Concern is unwarranted, really
until you actually hear the bombs falling.

9. If someone writes to you whom you've had on ignore since April
(just an example)...be sure to alert on it. That is the concern I have. Oh, and I will... I really will.
