SG101 2.0 Is Nigh: Site Upgrade Notice

Submitted by Brian on February 20, 2011.

Site News Dear SG101 Peeps -

As we approach the 5 year anniversary of the interactive version of this website, some changes are blowing in with the rising surf. As many of you know, I've been working (on and off) for almost 2 years on a new version of this dear website. The time has come to "go live" with this new software and new design. That time is tentatively going to be this coming weekend, starting on Friday, February 25th.

Most of the content we currently have here will follow us to the new site: user accounts, news stories, our Web links database, and our massive collection of forum posts. You won't need to re-register or anything like that, your current user name and password combination will continue to work.

Stuff I am not bringing over, at least right away: photo of the day, member map, calendar entries, avatars, and private messages. If you have some information in your private messages you want to keep, please save it yourself manually. You have been warned (although I do apologize for the short notice).

Since I'm just an amateur Web developer, and only one man, I have no idea what is going to go wrong during this process. I expect the site to go down sometime Friday morning for two to five hours. Depending on how things go, this may stretch into a day or even days. Please bear with me during this process. Play some guitar or listen to some great surf music. If you'd like to keep up on the progress, please check the @SurfGuitar101 twitter feed, or pop into IRC (I'll be there, swearing and panicking, most likely).

The current site has served us well, but it is very creaky and tedious to keep running. The new site will allow me to provide many more features for the SG101 community. I hope it will be worth the long wait.

Please discuss the upcoming transition in this forum thread.

Thanks in advance for your patience!
--BN
