Ok... so the new site is live... There will be a few teething problems that we'll sort out gradually... but everything should be fully operational... hope you like it!

verenita 05-24-2010 02:34 PM

first of all, thanks a bunch, emmett... for always thiking and working hard to give us the best :D

about the new site... well, as youve probably known already, im a big old minded fashion, hehe, so i rather the old one. but this one looks nice. and i like the idea of lisa having her own page of news, lol.

but i do miss our little eskimo community picture.

anyway... thanks again and cheers!

Hi Verenita,

Thanks - I understand. We're not finished with the styling yet, we'll have a much nicer header for the forum... but the rest of the site is now much more advanced than it was previously...

For the people who will run the site, it's blog-driven, which means it can be updated much more easily and by more people... so there'll be more frequent updates. It's also much easier to customize and add cool new features... We will hopefully be able to keep in touch with everyone a bit more easily now as well, as we have integrated social networking tools like Facebook and Twitter. The site is also on new servers now, with much better customer service should anything go wrong!

For visitors to the site, there will be more frequent updates, a nicer layout (I think), and lots of cool extras that we'll keep adding...

The forum is still pretty much the same as it was... although it's a slightly newer version...

Any questions, just let me know.

Good work Emmett.

Rai 05-24-2010 04:06 PM

Looks great! The only thing I'm missing is a "Vyv news" tab.

Dean C 05-24-2010 04:51 PM

Looks really nice. You must put a big link that says "Forum" somewhere though, as it's not clear what the "Igloo" is.

dboyd 05-24-2010 06:31 PM

wow... looks super fancy.. i like it. my only thing is that i'd like the stories on the front page to be in full length instead of having to click on "read more". that's me just being picky tho :P

great job! <3

trexy 05-24-2010 08:22 PM

maryb21 05-24-2010 10:06 PM

It looks nice so far Em!
I`m still checking all out!

administrator 05-24-2010 10:15 PM

I can bring the tabs back, no problem.

All the other changes sound good too. It's much easier to make changes like those now.

Joyful 05-24-2010 10:22 PM

Thanks so much Emmett! Looks great!

*Killian* 05-24-2010 10:39 PM

Looks good Emmett, good work!

mariaoran 05-24-2010 10:41 PM

I do agree that we need a header for the igloo and a Vyv News tab. That's all. good work Emmet, thanks for giving us a facelift! :)

Vyru 05-25-2010 02:07 PM

Love it!

How about a photo and video/youtube gallery, too, assuming the CMS supports it? Always found those to be popular features on blog-based sites I've set up. :)

Great work!

verenita 05-25-2010 02:43 PM

once again... thank you very much, emmett. you are doing a great job and being so receptive :)
and yay for vyv news tab :D

big hugs, man!

borneoman 05-25-2010 06:21 PM

yes, Vyv needs a news section!!! :smiley31:

malakitt 05-25-2010 08:09 PM

the lyrics section should also be put up again, it was a real treasure. :)

Vienna 05-25-2010 08:11 PM

it's looking good Emmett...big thumbs up! :smiley20::smiley20:

administrator 05-25-2010 10:37 PM


And yes, we should put the lyrics in somewhere... hmmm...

Yetzirah 05-27-2010 12:32 AM

well, everything's said already... well done, lads! (i take it that it was you and mysterious wheels who did it)... if not, well done, em! :D

Wheels 05-27-2010 07:19 AM

I never do anything. It was all the big man.

Moves-My-World 05-27-2010 10:17 AM

cille 05-30-2010 05:31 PM

...and the little star shining for the ones we lost!

verenita 05-30-2010 06:10 PM

^that too :) the star is still shining on the main page.
cille... i LOVE your new avatar (of course, lol)... and i remember you made a good joke about this sort of skirt damien is wearing, hahaha.

Wheels 05-30-2010 06:42 PM

Yeah, the star is still on the main page. The header for the forum will come along in due course.

Dean C 05-30-2010 07:49 PM

Please, please, please add a forum tab next to the others :)

verenita 05-31-2010 02:21 PM

Hey Emmett, sent you a message through your contact form. Would love to help out if there is anything I can do. Although I haven't been super active (in terms of posts or responses). I've lurked on this board for years, and have enjoyed the site and all the awesome Damien resources.

Great work!
