I'll be moving the site the first weekend of April ( April 2-4) so be sure to save any threads, info, etc etc that you want to save before then.

I will be taking down my contact form at the site next week. If you do not want any emails to get lost, I suggest you hold on to your questions until after April. That means no contacting me directly to my email too, btw. Also, do not contact me using the form at the temporary new site. That email is just there for testing purposes. I will not email you back if you use any form at that site.


======================================
If you haven't paying attention to the front page of this site, I am working on a MangaTutorials.com v2.0. And if you missed it, I've mentioned now and then that I am looking into a new hosting site for us.

What does this mean?

New look for the site
New tutorial pages, such as video tutorials, and an official downloads page with nice PDFs
New forum
And so on.

Yup, new forum! Everyone will start from scratch. Save your favorite threads and posts now.

I'm looking for another Oekaki program to replace the current one we have now. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear it.

If you would like to see any features in the new site, reply here and make your request. I may or may not implement it in the new site but I'll consider it at least.

[UPDATE] If you missed the preview I posted at the site earlier this month, here's a preview of what the new site looks like:


[UPDATE - March 1, 2010]
I am aiming to get the new site up by the end of this month. I suggest you save any threads that is important to you now.

As I previously mentioned here, I will try to keep the current forum when the new site is made but with Murphy's Law in mind, it may not happen so save your stuff!!

[UPDATE - March 22, 2010]
See the huge text at the top of this post.

New forum from scratch? Will it have the same layout as before or will we be able to customize the look like on those newer forums?

It'll be phpbb3. You'll take to it like a duck takes to water. It'll be pretty much the same as the forum now except there will be more features like keeping threads as new and marking friends and enemies and so on.

Oh, and no debug error messages and all that.

Ok, so no more exploding forums. And wasn't phpbb3 the thing that cliff was pushing for a while back?

It would be cool if we could have archives like we used to.

I'm shooting for early next year. So far it's pretty much on track.

Yeah, I'm looking for hosting where I can have enough room to archive threads for a looooooong time.

Is the ranking system going to be the same or do you think you'll change it up a bit?

Don't know. Maybe I will. It is a new site after all....
Any suggestions for what kind of ranks I should make?

Maybe change the beggar rank to newbie?

Oh and how would this affect the groupboard?

It's a new site so you'll have to create new accounts. For Rio, this will probably mean none of those pesky "change my name! D:" emails for a while.

Typically, I believe, you reserve names.

So far, the groupboard will stay. I already paid for the whole year. I would like to get something though that I can directly put into the site. You supposedly can do that right now with GB but it hasn't worked for me when I tried to set it up for the current site... :\

I'd say there'd be a sticky in the new Welcome Wagon made for old MT'ites to re-introduce themselves. This means people won't make stupid "hey it's me!" threads and clog up the forum.

Sounds like a good idea.

Btw, The YouTube channel you guys set up for MT.com awhile back is what I will be using to post video tutorials. If you want to bookmark it now, it is here.

Just curious, will we be getting signatures back, or will it stay the same?
