You may not have noticed it with all the parades and picnics and fireworks, but a new version of Y4Y was rolled out for you over July Fourth weekend!
This upgrade was mainly to the backend infrastructure that powers the Y4Y portal. What this means for you, the frontend user, is faster load times and a portal that’s generally quicker and easier to use.
One thing you’ll surely notice is the completely redesigned Discussion Boards. All your favorite topics are still there, and all previously existing conversation threads and uploads were successfully converted to the new format. The new design will make it easier for you to navigate and participate. Now you can also Subscribe to your favorite topics, so when someone posts something new on topic of interest you’ll automatically get an email letting you know. As always, if you want to do more than just read the posts, you have to be registered and signed in to participate in the Discussions!
The new site is also more secure than ever before, thanks to the addition of a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate similar to those found on your favorite e-commerce sites. You can never be too careful in this day and age, so a little added security will keep everyone’s information that much safer.
