Figure I start a thread to let you all know what's going on with the new site. Right now, not much. Real world work is in the way. I do have a new server purchased, got a basic website loaded and right now i'm working on the mechanics of the site. After that's working we'll start on the artwork to make it look pretty and functional.

One of the task we have to do is transfer the content of this site into the new platform. For the sake of my sanity we've decided to engage a software that will do the work for us. This software is not free, don't worry, not hitting y'all up for more money but, the more we transfer the more it cost. So we're going to go over the 6+years of forums and post and we're going to delete some very old things, old campaigns that have really low participation or completions. No one's completed campaign badges will be removed, you earned it, you keep it. But..your post count may go down.

I really hope no one is worried about post counts here. There is some debate on having them at all, that's for another discussion if we need to talk about it.

So hang on guys, if you see the forum topics move around or disappear just hang tight. None of our current campaigns will be affected, we're just looking at the really old stuff, things that didn't take off, that sort of thing.

Just want to get y'all in the loop. :tomato
I told you photobucket sucks...

Thanks for the update. I think the post count is interesting, but in no way indicative of the person, their work, or thier contributions/skill level, so yeah, it's neat, but not neccessary.

You just keep up the good work, Sir-Pup, we are behind ya! :beer


PS....just for the info, I promise to quit aksing when do we get the new site/yatta-yatta

Chatted with my WordPress Guru and he feels like he'll have the new site up and running before we kick off CTA3. Look for news here soon.
