Hello, been a long while.

@  Ishapar : (21 March 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I guess people are complaining about the site being dead. Can't help too much since I no longer have a computer, but I will check up with y'all here and there.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 March 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Both really, though she added more to the latter one over the past weekend

@  Shadow : (20 March 2019 - 08:22 AM)

You mean with the Hermione was black all along, or the Dumbledore was secretly gay?

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2019 - 08:14 PM)

I am absoultely convinced JK Rowling is trying hard to stay relevant.

@  furrykef : (17 March 2019 - 02:30 PM)

I mostly just check in to validate new users and to zap spambots. Obviously, we get far, far more spambots.

@  randomizer : (17 March 2019 - 12:08 AM)

I pop in every couple of days but I don't really have much to say so I mostly just lurk.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 11:33 PM)

Not looking for anything particular here, but since we got people checking daily, I thought I'd point out that I posted a new topic in SatAM Chat. Show a guy some love and check it out.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 10:56 PM)

bout the same for me too. I honestly don't remember at this point.

@  Shadow : (14 March 2019 - 01:50 PM)

I been here since I was 14 years old.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:39 AM)

I lurk, too. Sometimes. Maybe us seniors should just meet up at a retirement village.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Hiho Wildfire!

@  wildfire : (13 March 2019 - 10:39 PM)

It doesn't help that everything i post on dies. But seriously, I do try and poke my head in from time to time. FUS was family to me for several years. I doubt I'll ever truly leave.

@  Shadow : (11 March 2019 - 04:43 PM)

I did mention before on the idea of a monthly podcast channel.

@  ShenFNWoo : (11 March 2019 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah, it's that kind of thinking that keeps this place dead, mang :\

@  wildfire : (10 March 2019 - 07:42 PM)

I still pop in from time to time. I'm like a professional lurker. As a senior member I think its fair to say I've earned that right. ;) Miss you guys.

@  ShenFNWoo : (10 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

Rereading that, a lot of that came out completely wrong. But then again, it is a shoutbox, I don't know what the max word count is on the thing.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:25 AM)

As I've said many times before... IF the problem is that they themselves can't do it, then the guys running this place could possibly outsource in some form or fashion to people with more time to help work on this comic here. There's clearly people willing to pay for it, and even crowdfunding might be an option.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:23 AM)

There's really nothing stopping us. All we have to do is want to do this stuff.

 

Dr. Phil once said bored people are boring. Why a clinical psychologist who admits that most of the problem is of a functional nature within a patient's brain would believe this, I don't know, but there IS truth to that. Those who can't find something to try to work with to have or make a good time are usually just devoid of character themselves.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:21 AM)

I have a friend that's working on our game concept ideas who has major depression and horrible anxiety, 3 kids and a horrible job that takes up most of his day. He constantly gets on some of our team member's cases (even mine) about how there's 24 hours a day, and how Schwartzenegger's motivational speech can do wonders for us.

Alright so after a week we are finally up and running. I know our original down time was estimated at 12 hours but.. a lot happened. We had some issues with the first attempt at the upgrade, then we found out our server didn't have enough memory for the new software and.. yeah. So this past week we have spent a lot of time setting up our new server, contacting our hosts at hostgator to help us out where needed, as well as checking in with IPB so we could get this upgrade finally up.

First off I would like to thank Bakuda for all his hard work this past week. Everything you see here is from his hard work. He worked hard each day, doing stuff, reading up on stuff, and testing things out to get everything done properly. I couldn't have asked for a better webmaster. He even would text me while I was working giving me updates. Great guy and I enjoy working with him.

Secondly I would like to thank hostgator. If you need a website these guys are great hosts. Their technical support is fantastic in their live chat, and helped us out a lot. Their help is what made our move from shared hosting to our dedicated server so much easier. We still had some issues, mostly with missing the domain password etc.. But they even helped us out with a quick fix for that. Great guys to work with.



Now onto all this new fancy stuff. Its going to have some bugs we haven't yet caught. New stuff always does. So if you see some bugs please let us know by posting here in this dedicated topic to bugs, or if you aren't a member of the forums (which you should be) you can email me at Paul@SonicSatAM.com.

Anyways hope you all enjoy the new forums. Take a bit and look around. We will have facebook and twitter integration soon (if not now..Just gotta set it up), as well as a arcade we plan on installing sometime tomorrow. We even have a Sonic game ready to go in it.

Enjoy,

Paul

The board looks awesome! Thanks to Bakuda and hostgator. :nods: I still say Bakuda deserves a cookie! Do I get something for finding that Sonic game? :awesome: Nothing dairy please. And no NAVI!!! :aaarrrgh:

Anyway, the board's got really cool new features. Definitely don't miss the old one at all. I'm especially digging the orange theme. :biggrin:

Welcome back, everybody. :D Glad to finally see tihs place up and running again, good job to chief 'n' Bakuda for taking care of things so quickly. The new aesthetic is going to take some getting used to for me, but I doubt it'll be a difficult transition. Here's to the new FUS. :D

Awesome update is awesome! Would have checked it out sooner, but I was setting up a new-ish computer yesterday.

Oh wow this Irsist one is nice.

Let me know how IPB 3.0 treats you since I might upgrade one day :P

I just wanted to tell you that the hardest thing I've faced
Wasn't the teasing or the pain
It was convincing myself I wasn't stupid, strange, or lame
And helping others do the same.
