There will be numerous new site enhancements. In fact, we are moving to a new platform. As we've grown over the years our current platform has been unable to meet our scaling needs so this change is necessary. All of the NetPro content including posts, subscriptions, and member recognition will be migrated. The current site will be read-only November 17-19 while the migration is taking place.
This has been in the works for a while hence the reason you haven't seen us act on any of the Idea Center suggestions. A few suggestions that will be in this platform are ability to choose your local time zone, WYSIWYG, Wikis, number of hits against a post, wider text area, and many more. I can't promise it will be perfect, but we've tried to take all the things you've liked about NetPro and build on it. We apologize for brining the site down but hope the new platform will be worth the wait :-)
