Hey there

 

As you may be aware, Thing and I are currently in the process of getting the latest version of the site ready for prime time.

 

The switchover will likely happen before Christmas and this causes some logistical issues with the Bulging Bag (our Secret Santa).

 

I was wanting to gauge how much interest there was in doing that this year and perhaps thought we may be able to run it over on the FB page while things are getting moved over.

 

What say you all?

In the same pile as Cob for the same reasons. Empty pockets. Have fun!

Boooooo - I guess we can skip a year as we transition.

Shockingly, forum activity had decreased in direct correlation to lack of site activity :P

 

Perhaps if the transition were completed, Santa might deliver more ;-)

This is true - there has been a lot of background stuff going on that is not related to the site.

 

But you are correct. We are working to move it. It has been difficult to migrate such a large site with only two pairs of hands while working full time :(

 

Hopefully we will be done shortly...

Clearly, time to quit the job and revel in the vast fortune that comes of owning RPGMP3.com. Tropical islands, cocktails, dancing girls... it can all be yours!

 

I'm sure copious nagging and obnoxious poking by certain users is of great assistance in helping motivate you :P

Ha ha - I know what needs to be done to get this complete. This will be the 5th version of the site since we started this and each time it seems to take longer.

 

But please, do poke and prod me. I need to know there are people out there that are still wanting this site to come back and work again.

Poke and Prod @Hal and @Thing

Really enjoy the audio that is already available .. but new things to listen to would be good too.

We are getting there - it has been a massive slog to get the audio moved over to a new site. There has been a lot of manual work but when it goes live there will be a selection of new audio and more to come. :)

 

We are just working out the security kinks (well @Thing is)  in the upload form for the contributors and we should be good to go live and add other things once we are running.

 

On the Secret Santa front, it pains me to do it but I think we are going to skip it this year due to the fact we have basically had a year-long hiatus trying to get things moving with the new site space.

 

Cheers

Looking forward to the reanimation of RPGMP3.  I've missed your audio offerings.

I've missed doing them for you guys - I am thinking about getting things live ASAP and then fixing and adding features as we roll forward.

 

Cheers

I've been lurking and listening for most of a decade, so I thought I owed you at least a poke/prod to let you know that there are more people out there who care than, perhaps, you realise.

 

Merry Christmas, etc.

Hope everyone out there is doing well.

 

I just wanted to chime in and say that I'm with @EvilArdvark on this. I've been lurking around since the early days of WFRP 1e and WLD, and still check in fairly regularly when I re-listen to the audio stockpile I've got squirrelled away. So @Hal, if there is any way I can help with what's going on with the forum, or RPGMP3, please don't hesitate to ask. Its the least I can do.

 

Seasonal tidings to all.

 

Alexandrian

Hope all's working well for a go-live at some point in the new year.

 

For those on the lookout for new audio, the Sugar Fuelled Gamers have around 125 new episodes of this, that and the other for the new site :)

And they are all in there :) Hoping to go live very very soon - just dealing with some pages that come up 404 and need some TLC.

 

@Thing has been a rockstar with the upload forms and stuff so look for an email in the next few weeks about how the site is going to change with regards to upload and content and such. :)

 

SOON!
