Welcome to DiamondGarden!

1 post in this topic

Dear all Diamonds, new or old,

We want to thank you for joining us today in the opening of DiamondGarden. Created on July 20, 2012, as MarinaBoards, the site endured many periods of extreme lack of organization, moderation, and general care for the site over the years. These issues led to many more problems, and even to a point where the moderators themselves stopped visiting the site. Well, almost 1.5 months later after I purchased the site from the previous owner, we are back now, and better than ever before! We have completely updated the interface from Invision Power 3.0 to 4.0. This new update will create an amazing experience for every individual with many new tools and ways for everyone to communicate and have a great time here.
