Website Changes Posted By: SurlyT Posted On 02-27-2015 08:25 AM
Important Update - 4/17/15:

The site cutover is currently in progress, but the folks who are helping us migrate data from the old forum software into the new forum software hit a couple of unexpected snags today. They plan to resume working on it in the morning, and we'll bring the new version of the site up once the forum content has been moved and validated - hopefully sometime Saturday afternoon.

Keep in mind that any forum posts made between this morning and when we cutover to the new software will probably be lost when the migration is finalized.

Thanks again for your patience - we're almost there.

From the previous post:
  • To avoid the possibility of anyone creating new posts or threads during the cutover, the forums will be taken offline during the migration process. This will begin the morning of Thursday, 4/16, and will probably run most of the day. Once completed, we'll then do a lot of functional testing to make sure there are no major problems, and this take even more time. Our current estimate is that the site should be back online by the evening of Friday, 4/17.
  • We can import everyone's usernames from the old software into the new, but not their passwords. So everyone will need to set a new password upon accessing the new site (but it can be the same as your current password if you want). We're not yet sure how we're going to do this securely but will let everyone know before the cutover.
  • Please take a minute to make sure the email address in your profile is current. It's likely that we'll communicate with everyone via email while the cutover is in process, and may also send out instructions for changing passwords via email as well.
The initial rollout will be pretty simplistic. We'll have a new logo, new homepage and header, and the forums will look different, but most functionality will be pretty basic for the time being. After the dust settles and...
2015 Membership Renewals Posted By: SurlyT Posted On 01-30-2015 11:22 PM
Yes, it's that time again!

Thanks to everyone who joined or renewed their membership at the recent FragFest - it was great to see everyone, and we appreciate your support.

For anyone who hasn't renewed yet, you'll be getting an email message from us shortly reminding you about your 2015 membership. If you have any problems with the renewal process or believe our records are in any way in error, please PM me or email me and I'll look into it.

Important note: We'll be removing the "active member" status from accounts who haven't trued up by the first week of March.

So please, help support the club by renewing your membership when you have the chance. It really doesn't cost much, and can more than pay for itself if you leverage some of the events, discounts, and group buys that regularly run through the club.
