We've had this upgrade in the works for quite some time now, but it's finally getting close. Our goal is to have the site generally ready by RKO-CON so we can debut it. Getting the new code done has been a challenge, but a fun one. We've learned a lot over the past couple years since 4/7/11 when we launched, and we think we've put that learning to work.
When we launched, one of the comments we got a lot was along the lines of, "Hey, this is great, but let's chat again in two years and see if you're still here." We get that. With a few notable exceptions, quite a majority of volunteer-run community web sites come and go in less than a year. People have great ideas and expectations, but rarely stick it through to see a site grow. Sometimes life happens. Sometimes they take a different path or perhaps just get bored. Well, it's been more than two years, and we're just getting started.
We've upgraded the forum to what we think is a better system and we've also seriously enhanced the blogging system (you're using it now!). We've also upgraded the social framework and made a lot of changes to speed things up and make for a better and more responsive layout. In the coming months we'll be adding some other fun new features, but we didn't want to overwhelm people or try to do too much, too soon. So stick around, have some fun, tell your friends, and enjoy the Internet's largest Rocky Horror Picture Show community as we continue to grow.
Now excuse me, please, I have some last-minute coding to do ;)
