Hello fellow A.A. members! I have a pleasant surprise for you!
We are in the process of revamping and updating the website! It will be sleeker, prettier, newer, and shinier all around! I've already seen bits and pieces of it, and I'm quite excited.
What does this mean for you? With the switch there will be less than awesome things happening. For instance, our forum content is huge. There's just no way to copy it all over. If you really like a particular thread, it will be your responsibility to save it, store it, and then repost it in our new design.
Also, we're all going to have to recreate our profiles! I know, it's a bummer. I'm going to have to do it too though.
Lastly, this does not come cheap. While we're getting a serious discount from Keely, partly because anime4christ is helping and partly out of the goodness of her soul, she still needs to be reimbursed for her work. The current cost for the whole change is $450. (Which only seems like a lot if you didn't see the original estimate!) I am paying for all of it. As I do with everything concerning Anime Angels.
I'm asking that if you have money, please consider donating. Any amount will help! Even if all you got is $5 to give. If you don't have any money, THAT'S OK. Don't feel guilty that you can't help financially. You just being a member is enough! :)
We are going to be using something called BUDDYPRESS
to make our new design. There are all sorts of plug-ins and extras that go along with BuddyPress. Take a look through what they have. If you see an interesting Plug-in PLEASE TELL ME! We might be able to implement it.
Lastly, we are thinking of adding ADs to the website. Like I said, I pay for everything. And in some cases running this website amounts to quite a bit more than pocket change. Be rest assured we will not allow any ol' ad company to come in. These ads will be family friendly and non-obtrusive. (If we can find a really good company, we might even find INTERESTING ads. How about that?)
Any questions? Comments? Now's the time! :)
