Hi. Just wanted to mention a few upcoming changes on the forum. Under Construction The big change is that we are going under construction label. That doesn't mean you can't come here, or can't post. Nope, you can do all of that and more. What it does mean, is that under the hood and behind the scenes many members/admins will be working on getting this site moved over to a new server. We will try to get ALL of the messages across and will probably shut down the forum in the interim, so no data is lost. We will, of course, announce the slated time for all of this. Right now, we are still in the research mode but wanted you to be all aware of what's down the pipe. Contingency Not immediately, but perhaps after as successful move, we will be looking in to backing up the site not only with backups but with a hot backup which would mean that if the main server goes down, you will be automatically re-routed to another server which should have up to date forum to go to. Home Page I started out working on it, but honestly, nor do I have the time now nor the talent. The forum's integration is going to be with post-nuke which is a portal site. It's probably one of the top of the line softwares that do wonders. Automatic news feeds, news of the forum, email routing/forwarding/checking, instant chat, ICQ/IM for AOL and the list goes on. What I was thinking about is making a few people responsible for different pieces of it. I've already designated Domhain to do the admin portion of it. If anyone is interested in helping out (the pace is sloooooow for this so don't worry about doing things on time ) please post here or PM me or Domhain. This is low on the priority list. Personnel Changes With me gearing up for a birth with the wife, I will be away from the administrative tasks (although will try to keep up as a member) more so than before. Administrators are the highest forms of members on here and they are mainly responsible for the site itself. Server, database, connectivity, email and most of all forum's content and functionality. For that reason, I've made Biker our backup administrator. I will be promoting a few others as time goes on, but I think we have a good crew right now to go with. Finally, just wanted to thank all of you for the patience and make you aware that the new changes will be worth it.
