Okay, Bob is done with testing and things look pretty good with the new server. What we have decided to do is to launch the new site and forum at a low peak time and since that is normally the weekend, then that is when we will launch. The reason for this is so we can have a gradual transition of traffic come over to the new forum from Delphi instead of flooding it trying to launch at a high peak time. So, early Saturday morning (around 2am or so) we will officially launch! This time it's for real folks...so just hang in there a few more days!

Sweet. So midnight Friday Pacific time? Traffic on the average Friday night is pretty slim, you could probably move that up a few hours if you wanted.

Cool, I should be home around that time! LOL I have to work until about 10pm Friday night and I'm sure I'll be a few beers down by the time we switch. LOL

I deleted the two huge threads. The users remain. Deleting them won't reset the member numbers so it doesn't really matter anyway.

We'll delete all unneccessary threads before launching. As far as purging the member database (such as all of Bob's clones) it will really do no good as it will not reset the member numbers as Bob stated. What we will do is reset the minimum number of posts so those usernames do not show up in the members list.

By the way, what do y'all think we should set the minumum number of posts a user should have before their name shows up in the members list?

25 or so seems reasonable to me. Probably take the average person a month. Slow people 6 months. Most people won't care I'm sure.

It is my recommendation...

Mods, lets try to keep flaming wars to a minimum, especially in the first few days as we try out this server. No need to put extra strain on the system by having people bitching about crap and threads going nowhere.

Also, I would recommend no BUMP thread in this one either. Not yet.

Just my recommendation, do as you wish with it. :)

I have reset the minimum number of posts a user must have to show up in the Members List to 25 posts. So y'all don't freak out when you goto the Members List and only notice a couple of Members listed.

no problem...

in the future, you might want to tell seach engines not to index your site until closer to release.

if you type in tacoma territory in google, the "new" folder is the 2nd thing you see:

It is close to release.

Im aware of the current ranking, im purposely trying to key it up there, I was testing the search engine optimization, worked quite nicely and quick, I was surprised to see it crawl up there so quick, so keywords and content is pretty much perfect. me happy.
