    Major software upgrade next week

    Early next week, we will be performing a major software upgrade on the site. The entire look of the site will be altered somewhere between "slightly" and "significantly".

    In the meantime, we are testing the software and making some changes to it so that the impact to you is minimized, and we can retain some of the special features you know and love.

    We're tentatively planning the upgrade for Tuesday the 9th, but some outside factors may move this day out a day or two.

    I will post some screencaps here soon, to give you an idea of what it's going to look like.

    Thanks!

    I hope this doesn't change the way we insert images, since I just now got the hang of that!

    I love "between slightly and significantly"

    That's like color changes versus entire restructuring! Are trying to avoid litigation, John

    Well, they've made major changes - we're in the process right now of modifying the layout and functionality to be more similar to what you see here. How successful we are will determine what you'll see in the end product

    Obvously we want to maintain the "ease of use" of the site as much as possible.

    I think what John means is the new software upgrade changed a lot of "look/ease of use" things, and John and others are changing some things so that they are more like what we see now. That way you'll get (almost the) same ease-of-use and look you've seen from this site, but with improved features and/or performance.

    Yep, Zaius has it. We've made a lot of changes to this software to make it easier for our users. We realize that a lot of people who are into reality TV aren't necessarily high on the computer-wizard scale. The new version of this software we use has changed a LOT of stuff, and we want to make sure that when we go live with it, it's still just as easy or easier for all our users.
