Since I know we all look at various sites both when trying to find answers for our own problems and referring others to specific help, I thought I'd mention that this is now proving a bit problematic as far as androidforums.com goes.


A few days ago they went through a huge restructuring, see IMPORTANT: HUGE Update to AndroidForums.com.  One thing this has done, though is to break a huge number of links between existing threads that were moved around during the update.  There was apparently no effort to go through message text and replace links within the site with their "new and improved" equivalents, so almost all links that you don't snag from something you find yourself since the change lead to non-existent pages.  The material appears to still be available, but you have to do quite a bit of searching to find its new location.


Also, in case anyone here is already a member on AndroidForums.com, it appears there's a problem with their confirmation e-mails going out, too.  I registered this evening and not only did the original confirmation e-mail make it to me, neither did any of the three resend requests I tried, too.  If someone is able to pass this on to "officialdom" over there I have to presume this situation is not limited to me.
