With the presents unwrapped, egg nog poured and brunch being had, we at Soap Opera Network wish all of our readers and SON Community members the merriest christmas. In light of the holiday, we share with you a holiday pose by the departed boys of “One Life to Live” – the Ford Brothers!


UPDATE Sunday, December 22, 2013 4:30 AM ET: It’s taken some time, but it’s finally arrived! The SON Community Message Boards have been upgraded to the latest software and this time, we weren’t accepting the tired default theme that comes with it.

Over the course of 3 hours, I was able to customize the MB’s to keep some of the elements of the default theme, but also add new tools and abilities while making the community more sociable and cleaner at the same time. At faster speeds (based on several browser tests), the community is the fastest it has ever been, while maintaining the integrity of the place and keeping member issues and concerns at the top of the list.

As a result of the update:

  • Blogs are back! They are fully functioning and ready for new rants, raves and fanfics
  • Gallery is fully operational and usable for uploading images without having to utilize a third party, such as flickr, tumblr, twitter, etc.
  • There is now a floating menu bar that will help you navigate from one area of the community to another (forums to members, calendars, etc) without having to scroll
  • The registration page no longer asks what your favorite soap is (this feature had not been updated since 2005!) – member registrations should run a lot smoother
  • Social icons to allow members to interact with the website outside of the community is now possible

Let us know if you encounter any problems or if you have any issues with the update. Without your comments, we wouldn’t know what works and what doesn’t.

PREVIOUS: Beginning Saturday, December 21 at 11:59 PM ET and until Sunday, December 22 at 3:00 AM ET, the SON Community message boards will be offline due to scheduled maintenance that will hopefully resolve several long standing issues, including membership verification problems and accessing blogs/mySONTV.

Although we didn’t get a chance to do one for 2011, I’m pleased to announce that with the assistance of those who’ve been following your favorite daytime soaps and their episode counts through out 2012, Soap Opera Network will resume its annual Airhog Awards in which daytime soap stars are ranked in order of who hogged the most airtime in daytime during each calendar year.

While the term hog infers pig, which is perceived by the term “pigging out,” our usage is a term of endearment to those who’ve appeared the most on your favorite daytime shows.

After a brief downtime, the SON Community Message Boards are back online. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
