Exclamation SNOWEST FORUMS: Coming Attractions on SnoWest.

With Fall comes change, and now that everyone knows that change is blowing in the wind for the SnoWest Forums, I thought I would offer everyone a little more insight into some of the goodies you can be looking forward in the future....

NOTE:
What you see will take some time to get installed.
Likely we are talking MONTHS here, just so you understand the time frame. My goal is to have all of this up and running THIS YEAR though. So there should be a nice steady trickle of new features coming into SnoWest week after week as the upgrade to the forums progresses.

Also note, that the order I have listed these is NOT indicative of how I will get them installed. This is my MASTER list as of TODAY. And you can count on it CHANGING over time!!

When I said I wanted to catipult SnoWest into the #1 "Premier" position as the best Snowmobile forum on the Internet, I wasn't kidding.

Having done this before, I have a REALLY good idea of what it takes to move a good forum into "Greatness".

And a whole lot of what makes a forum great, is the User Experience. The technology is out there, its just a bear for most sites to implement and support, as it requires a real full time admin to watch over it all the time.

Sounds like a lot of good new features. Thanks for working on it!

Let make sure it stays fast and stable! Slowdowns were the worst on the old forum.

My only request is can we appoint some of the more active and reputable users as moderators? There are always the losers that help to ruin the forum and an active moderator list would help a lot. Of course there is a fine line between censorship and keeping the idiots at bay.

AGREED.
All this week we are load testing the SnoWest server to see exactly what is being asked of it, and just how much headroom we have to work with in implimenting these upgrades.

AGREED AGAIN.
New Moderators will be forthcoming!!
There is simply NO WAY I can do everything we have in mind without the help of a PILE of SnoWesters!!

There will be an annoucement on Moderators coming in the near future.
