Three years in the making! Yes indeed, we knew we needed to upgrade our site a long time ago. So what took so long? Simple. We make a penny scream before we let it go, so we did not go out and buy a pre-made template. Besides, we have skilled volunteers. But, of course, our volunteers are just that: and as you all know, if you want something done, you find the busiest people to do it. But…it’s done!
Now, you will see, of course, that it will take time to migrate the older articles to the new format. One of the reasons it took some time to do the new design is due to the sheer size of our site. We’ve been doing this for over a decade now, and stuff piles up on a website! So you will find some links going back to the old site for now, but we are working diligently to get everything up to speed. Of course, now that this new format is operational, future changes will be a lot easier, thankfully. It was the first “get caught up to modern technology” move that took so long. For those who don’t know, the format we had first appeared in 2000. So old, it had become retro!
So we hope you will find our new website easy to use and helpful. I sure like the way it looks! I would like to extend my thanks to (using their IRC nicks) AOMin, Shamgar, Micah, ENielsen, Spidey and buzz for all their hard work for a very long and extended time period. Enjoy!
