Hey Everyone,

Obviously, we are having some small technical difficulties - i.e. our front page, articles and interview sections are all down, but we expected that. Please take some time to look around and feel out the new forum until we can get things perfectly running. Honestly, this may take a couple of days.

Cheers and thank you,
James

Thanks, guys. I am about 70% where we need to be. Chanthee and I are working on new front page options as the way they do things is different from what we have done in the past. We are also working on user permissions for the pro forum.

LOL, one step at a time. A lot of work will be done this weekend (when we are not cleaning. We have Helmi and Ken coming over on Tuesday)

Thanks Guys. Traffic is still way down since we shut down (mostly because of the front page where 90% of the traffic is generated), but I am optimistic that it looks right.

If anyone would like to try uploading images onto the server (using the forum as the image bank), that would be very much appreciated. I am trying to get a sense of how people find it.

Cheers
James

I agree, Penny. LOL, it is completely wierd for me. I do like the addition of the Tweet and Facebook buttons at the bottom of every post. That's cool. LOL, now I just need to open a Twitter account, I guess!

James,
hate the color scheme. Hate the way the forum works. Hate the fact that Julie Poole's interview has gotten lost ih the migration. In general, there's not much to like with the changes.

Go back to what made you relevant. This, IMHO, ain't it.

I don't think the forum should be publishing all of our ip addresses.

100% correct and not paranoid. I will fix ASAP.

Hey Jim,

Thanks for the feedback. It is very appreciated. Just a couple of things. Julie's interview was not lost. Part 1 will be published tonight. I have been working with Julie on it. As to the color scheme, at the bottom of the page, there is an alternate scheme that is more similar to what we are used to.

Thanks - please everyone, keep the feedback coming. I am trying to get things right, but it is definitely taking a bit of time.

Hey Preston,

Chanthee fixed the system. Clear your cache and reload. The ip addresses are gone. Thanks for pointing this out.
