Are Apple Discussions Finally Getting the Upgrade?

The Apple discussions site has ben unavailable since last night (EST). The message is that We are busy updating Apple Discussions for you and will be back shortly.

An upgrade to the site has ben talked about for a long time now. The current software lacks a number of features more modern discussion software has.

One of the chief complaints agains the current software was the inability to modify your alias. There was also talk of revising the way points are given to posts that are helpful or answer a question.

We'll see what happens!
