Communications between staff and members/ guests; site and forums "administrative" issues

Welcome to the BuildTheEnterprise Forums.

The forums are currently in a transitional phase and as such the old forums are now locked and located at the bottom of the forums list. The staff is working on refining the information contained within the old forums for placement in the new forums. How long this procress will take depends on too many factors to say at this point. In the meantime, all members of the site are encouraged to create new, meaningful topics to help fill up the forums.

For posting new topics it is recommended to use the Forum Index.
