Default New "Things" at The Hunter's Life

I had a long conversation with RaveBeauty last week. Her health is better, but she has a lot to deal with in that regard.

She assured me that she has had no intentions of 'shutting anyone out', and that RockinBBar's. Daryl's, and my efforts to access the "Administrative" section of THL are not being restricted by her. The last crash, about a year ago, lead to some fairly draconian security measures, and apparently, those security measures are keeping anyone but RavenBeauty out of the deepest levels of Administrative area where new members are vetted. We're working our way through the problems slowly.

In the 'grand scheme of things', it appears that a whole new database will be required. What that means is that the existing 'old and corrupted' database will have to be archived in a fashion that will not allow any changes. In other words, it will be available for reading, copying and pasting, but it will not be a "live" forum allowing new posts. Instead, an entirely new database will be initiated, and posting and new memberships will continue as it has in the past.

I think is a VERY GOOD step forward. Our greatest concern has been preservation of the historical database. This preserves that database, sequesters it from causing administrative problems, and allows THL to move ahead.

This process will require some 'juggling' while everything gets sorted out. I'm pretty sure Biopar will be able to handle that. Once a copy of the current database is archived, THL will undergo a complete upgrade including wiping the existing database and starting anew. The membership will be preserved, and all of the currently existing threads will be preserved in the archive for viewing by anyone at any time. Those threads that we want moved to the new database will have to be copied and pasted to the new one.

Sharon and I discussed making changes at the time the new version gets implemented. While nothing is written in stone, I can assure you that it is my intent to keep it as close to what exists right now as is possible. We MAY consolidate a couple of sub-sites that don't get too much attention. That consolidation would be to get them to places where they would get more viewing, not to make them "go away".

As soon as I have any more info on when what is going to happen, I'll let you know.

Most importantly, you should know that there is a real effort being made to get THL back to the place it once was.

Be nicer than necessary.
