It's been a while since there's been anything to post in here, so I'll start off with an update on what's been going on behind the scenes.
I've been talking with the folks at VerticalScope about giving us some more access to the site and effectively letting us do our own thing again like we used to, and whilst progress has been slow, we're definitely getting somewhere with it. So, what're we gonna do?
Well, here's a few things for starters to get things back in gear:
- Get Staff set back up with the right permissions and the ability to do what they need to once again. De-nerfing the forums from the various takeovers/changes of ownership that haven't fared it well.
- Fixing the broken links. That portal Link at the top that's been broken for waaaaay too long is going to be chased until it's all sorted.
- Getting the spam under control. We all hate Spam, therefore it must die. Simple.
- Giving us control of the site & Features. I'm working with VerticalScope to have this stuff re-added to the forums. Things like our old chat module have all been removed and would be really handy when events are running.
- Email Sendouts. As you might expect, once the essentials are out of the way, we'll be emailing everyone to tell them what's going on and what we're doing over here.
- Tidy up and revamp. I know we all liked the old site the way it used to be. Fast, responsive, nice to look at and above all, ours. That's what I'm going to try and bring back.
- Far more stuff! But let's get the show on the road first!
Rest assured, I will be completely transparent about anything going on and you'll all be informed if anything changes.
