Editor’s Note:
  • August 31, 2015: MiceChat Discussion Boards to be temporarily offline starting 8/31 -
    • Hello MiceChatters!, we're preparing to move our forums to a new hosting service for the MiceChat Discussion Boards, and they will be offline starting on the evening of 8/31. We can't anticipate how long the total offline period will be, but we estimate it will be for no longer than one week. When we come back, we'll have a fresh new look and the latest version of our forum software.
      Because our Discussion area is now separate from our articles and stories, you can still view, comment, and enjoy our main articles on the front page of MiceChat.com. If you would like to keep the discussion going outside article comments, feel free to join us on our Facebook group, Twitter account, or Google+ community.
    • - MiceChat Knott's Berry Farm Halloween Haunt event tickets are now on sale. Don't miss out on this very special annual event. You can even select an option to meet Elvira!
