Most members probably don't know this, but the MNBC site has had a "BC Staff" section lurking and waiting for just this type of thing. It greatly sped us up in organizing and gathering everyone to get the word out. We simply moved from here to there. That simple.
It was great the way things went. For all of us on the "outside looking in" it went very smoothly. I'm sure a major headache for Jeff, the admins, and moderators. The MN group did a great jog at making us feel welcome.
