First of all, glad you found your way to the new site.

I'm aware many are thinking "WTF, I forking hate this!!" and for that I truly apoligize, however, you'll see as you read on I had little to no choice.


What Happened?
Back in Janurary, we were acussed of sending spam emails. Of course, this pissed me off as I absolutely despise spam. Apparently Monday night, another spam email was sent, reported and Tuesday we were shut down. You can read the email below.





Why Change Site Software?
DragonFly CMS runs on Linux operating system using PHP. With the lack of updates from DF and my limited knowledge in the programming language, we had hit a peak of no more improvements. That's just not kosher for me.

DotNetNuke CMS runs on Windows operating system using ASP.NET and C#, all of which I'm fluent in as I work with these professionally. This means, the sky is the limit for things that I can do. I like that, especially since this is a hobby of mine.


Possible Concerns?
Will I get my Applaud points back?
Answer: Yes, I'll be running a tool to update them within the next two weeks. This will be easy.

Why does it say I only have a few posts if all posts were imported?
Answer: This will be updated around the same time the Applaud points are resolved.

Why am I seeing old topics first?
Answer: This will be another tool I will create to update. It's displaying the old topics first because it doesn't know which post was the last one for each topic.

Why do the messages have no break points or formating?
Answer: When I pulled the data down, I did not retain the formating because it would not import smoothly. This is something I'm going to investigate rectifying because it annoys the piss out of me. No timeline.



How Can You Help?

The Thank (button on the upper right near Quote) is replaced the Applaud points. :)

What if we place all issue post in the site development sub forum.. and use that as a organization method as well and keep the clutter out of the PH info forum. Another thought.

Done and Done. Haha, nothing personal, but I'm gonna be a bit strung out going many days without being able to work on the site. Once I get it stable, I'll throw you in, depending on your references coming through and detail of your resume. ;)
Something funny.

Pretty sure Shawn might be one of the most intune folks into the hell I went through the last 24-36 hours pushing this site to a new platform. Fairly confident, no one wants to take this over, lol.

Let me just say that watching you geek techie types work your magic is almost as fun as dreaming about Jessica Biel.

It's looking better already. Hopefully the top priority at this point is to get rid of all of those Dallas Cowboy stars in front of each topic.
