What the hell did the admins do

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I thought I'd post a message on the status of the main page.

The reason we did the switch to these new servers 2 days ago is because we canceled 2 of our servers at thePlanet. So we were forced to move over to forums that were completed (in terms of upgrading and theme porting).

The news system is a different story, we had to import news from the old setup, and Marcel is now making it work with the new system we have in place, the news system wasn't as far as the forums because basically its been built from the ground up. Its a whole new system.

The plan is to have the main page back up today, this will be a skeleton setup with the basics we had at neowin.net in working order, and the rest will be added over the course of the coming weeks.

Sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to sort this and other problems (we are also having 'teething' problems with the new servers and are working hard to find a suitable configuration setup).

I'm glad you guys put the link to the forums on the main page, I think people got a little confused about if the forums were up or not because the main site was down.

(Y) Thanks for the update :D

Dang, after seeing the progress on v5, I assumed that you guys were delaying to launch with Finity. Oh well, I'm sure it's right around the corner. Swift is better then no neowin. Thanks guys.

What is "Swift" and "Infinity"? I'm so out of the loop :)

BTW, glad the forums are here.

I think its:

"Swift" - An updated version on Neowin 3 skin.

"Infinity" - Neowin 5 still to come, Swift will come along for the ride as well for people that want to still use the 3 style skin.

This right?
