Just curious...seems like activity on the site has been down, lately. Was wondering how many active users we have, and how many are visiting the site, and contributing to forums.

I'm here!  I've been so busy lately that I do more quick looking than posting.  Junior, you're right though. Activity does seem to be down lately.  I just assumed that it was summer and everyone is very busy.

I got super busy this week. Hopefully it will clear up by the weekend.

I think I'm almost done with the new site changes. A lot of what's left is just moving content over to the new system. Might be able to start rolling it out next week.

Probably right...I noticed in the past on weekdays when people get up, they check in...at work, they check in...and when they come home in the evening, activity picks up again, then, once more before bedtime. Just an observation. I noticed on weekends traffic usually gets real light.

Got everything just about ready now. Changes will go live this week whenever I get enough content moved over.

I was more distracted this week than I originally thought I would be, so I didn't get much progress done on moving things over. There's still one fairly small thing I need to code to get the galleries to display, and then there's just so much re-uploading and copying things over. Plus a lot of little things. Next weekend I should have a fair bit of time to myself. Hopefully I can get the first phase done by then.

You should be able to see the new site now. There's still plenty to fix and change, but I wanted to go ahead and push something live. I haven't gotten all the content transferred over yet because I've been busy fixing bugs and finding plugins that actually work. I'll be moving galleries over starting tonight.

It looks great:  simple and clean.  Just to clarify, the Wiki is not really a wiki anymore, is it?

^Nope, but I'm not sure what else to call it at the moment. I looked at some options for making a new wiki system using 3rd party plugins though. I might pursue that later on if there's interest.

^Thanks, got it fixed

Finally getting some work done on the content transition. I'll be working on it a little each night, and should be done by the weekend. I'm also working on aggregating some stuff for some new content pages.
