We needed to make a change. The old GSMB was broken and by taking it down we had time to fix the site and provide a better forum. 

 

Your username, profile information and post count has been transferred to this forum. Everything else is completely new.

 

We will continue to work to make this the best possible forum experience.

O&BGator, we wanted to keep the design of the board very clean and easy to use. You will find many new customization options that weren't previously available.

Just in time, too.  It's like they knew last week would be cancelled and didn't need to have it up and running yet.   :potstir:

arkygator, We wanted to launch last week but there were lightning strikes within 8 miles of our servers.

Someone was seeing dwindling site traffic, I'm guessing.

Glad to see you at least decided to relaunch and not cancel the launch forever. :) You guys have some work to do to re-earn the trust of the masses. There were a lot of people hurt and pissed that the board was removed, many of us very long-time users.

Doubtful DC. I basically checked the site hourly for them to restart this. A lot of the faithful did this IMO

When the site was shut down, there was a statement that was very clear that it was shut down due to "a disruptive minority". Now it's because the old version was broken?

 

Which is it?

DC, we knew when we took the board down in June exactly how much our overall site traffic would drop. It was a consideration when bringing the forums back, but more importantly we needed to stop using phpBB and build a better forum.

Fair enough, thanks for being honest about the traffic drop-off. The other thing that ticked folks off what the snooty, condescending message about the reason the board was being discontinued. That really rubbed folks the wrong way. I'm not trying to be negative, just telling you what you're up against with rebuilding the board. Good luck.

I'm really excited to hear from Oxrageous. When are you all bringing back the podcasts?
