So, I never shut this thing down like I promised. For that I’d like to thank everyone that took part in the movement. I had become apathetic toward the site and Niner athletics and pushing this place forward just didn’t feel worth the time anymore. Thanks to everyone for breathing some life back into the program.
That said, here’s what’s happening:
- This weekend (most likely Saturday), I’ll shut down the site by putting it into maintenance mode.
- The new web address to the forums will be given in the message with instruction on how to move over.
- You’ll have to do a password reset on the new site using your email address to gain access. IMPORTANT: IF your email address on the site here is currently not correct, then let me know via PM. DO NOT FOR ANY REASON CHANGE IT IN YOUR SETTINGS HERE. That will affect finishing the import of data into the new DB.
- I’ll re-sync data between the old and new and turn it up.
For now the site will not be SSL encrypted. Once I move the main ninernation.net domain over, I’ll be encrypting things across the board. We will also have a new frontend to the site, but that won’t show itself until the main domain moves.
So, what is it we have in store. Everything on the site is pretty much real time. Chat, quick message/private message, and even forum posts. You can also have up chat and quick messages (private chat between 2 or more people) while navigating the site. Those windows will remain up while you do other things, almost like a workspace for NNN communications.
Adding your own images is as easy as drag and drop. Image and Video urls will automatically embed.
Mobile… Everything scales down great onto mobile. We should have no issues whether it’s iOS or Android like the current site.
The default skin for the site will be dark. For those that prefer the light side, there is an option in your settings to default it to our lighter skin.
There may be some hiccups along the way, but hopefully not.
I’m attaching some sample page images here.
