Rebuilding from Scratch

Under Construction
Written by Ethanh59, Sept. 24, 2015

I look at the previous item in the newsfeed and it seems hard to belive its been over 3 years. It's been over 7 months since anyone has used the forums. None of the games on the games page have worked in who knows how long. Needless to say, the website has grown rather stagnant.

Back around the beginning of this year, I decided it would be best to rewrite the website from scratch, give it a makeover, and all that stuff. This was caused by the hope of getting a SSL certificate from a trusted certificate autority(the scary warning message on registering/logging-in would dissapear). When the date on when the group offering the certificates would start general availability got pushed back, I somewhat quit on the little work I was putting into a new version of the site. Other projects came up that I had more interest in, and updating the site got forgotten.

Now that I've finished up all of the small-in-scope projects I've been working on and have come to a standstill with deciding where to go with larger projects, it seems like a good time to return to working on the site update. Registration was shut down some time ago because all user accounts are getting deleted(sorry to the half a dozen existing users). The games page is getting wiped. So are the forums. And while it looks like there's already been some progress with this new news post, this isn't truely a proper newsfeed as I meant it. A proper newsfeed would have a short summary leading to a larger article. On top of that, there's no way for me to write news articles in a reasonable manner. For this article, I just edited the code for the main page.

The goal for updating is now mid-november to match when I'd hope to get a trusted SSL certificate. Hopefully it will actually happen this time.

edit Nov. 16, 2015 - The update date has been pushed back to Decemeber 3.

edit Nov. 18, 2015 - Make that December 7. A monday makes more sense, and that way, there's time to test stuff ahead of time.
