Site Upgrade - Latest Status
Thu Dec 6, 5AM Eastern
(For anyone who is confused - we have a brand new version of the site going live over the next few days)
Latest: Logins are ready to go - unfortunately I ran into a small bug during the quick live test this morning, but that's been fixed and I'll re-open logins again tonight.
More: When logins are re-enabled, you will have access to a new forum setup where we can at least hang out for the first couple of days while I confirm that logins are working properly for everyone. Once I'm certain things are running smoothly, I'll turn on the account dashboard, which will give access to all of the regular functionality (albums, costumes, photos, etc.) The new dashboard is really nice, you can pretty much do everything from one main navigation page rather than have to jump around like it was before.
Two questions I've had that I can answer here - the photo/costume view counts are not increasing because it would skew heavily toward whoever was lucky enough to add photos/costumes during the last day of activity. Those will start updating once we're 100% live again. Also, as for what will happen with the front page of the new site - it will be changing over into an aggregated feed of user activity (latest photo uploads, updated costumes, new forum threads, etc). In other words, it'll actually be useful for once.
Please note that the final user interface and layout will not be active until everything else has been re-opened across the site. This is because some sections are going on/offline for testing, and I'd rather not have a bunch of broken links for now.
Thank you very much for your patience during this time. - Admin
