TCN has barely functioned since our server upgrade. Today I noticed that it not only looks so bad it is unusable, but it is throwing occasional but regular database access errors. I've removed it from the system.

Fortunately, our upcoming switch to vBulletin forum software will make a separate program for social interaction unneeded. vBulletin allows members to create social groups with mini-forums and picture galleries, have personal picture albums, and the like. Most of what people were trying to use TCN for.
Darn - I had some group-description type stuff I was gonna retrieve before it went poof.  No matter; I can probably reconstruct it (or just rewrite it) without too much trouble.

Other than that, I'm not mourning; even before the server upgrade, I was disappointed in it - it had looked more useful than it actually was in practice.  What VBulletin includes in that line is much simpler, but covers the stuff we actually have a use for quite well, and I'm confident that its utility is present in function, not just in form.
