I’m getting close to the point where I’ll need to take the site offline to upload all the changes and switch us into the new cart system. I expect everything to be down for at least 24 hours.  That means the message forum will be offline, too.

So I’d really appreciate feedback here. When are you MOST likely to check the forum? Weekends? Weekdays? I’m thinking of shutting down Monday and possibly into Tuesday. Would that be convenient, or are you more likely to be off the forum on a weekend?

Just want to minimize the downtime for everyone, so I appreciate feedback! And I promise the forum will be MUCH easier to use in the new design, as it will fill the screen–no more squashed threads and posts!

Warmly,

Jennie

most likely. 

As can’t get on forum on my non smartphone. Weekdays. Daytime (UK time) which is probably your night time. ;)

Well, I’m in Kenya, which is two hours ahead of London….

But thanks for the feedback!

Cheers,

In London, two hours behind you, but addicted to the computer! So any time will do!

Most likely to be *on* the forum on weekdays and off on weekends; but agreeing that we just appreciate all you do and that whatever you need to do will work.  Looking forward to the new and improved site!

I’m also more likely to be on the forum on weekdays and less on weekends. But whenever you’re able to is fine with me, too! I can’t wait to see the new site :)

Looking forward to the improvements, Jennie! :)

 

I think I’m on more, on weekdays, than weekends, but with the new forum, I’ve been off, lots, so it’s hard to say.  As has already been stated, do what works best for you. :)

 

Will the upgrades allow for smart phone use?wink

Thanks, everyone! I’m going to take the site offline today (Saturday) and hopefully get everything uploaded/moved in one go.

Yes, the new site design works on phones and tablets! I’m trying to test it on several platforms, including my Kenyan Android phone, just to make sure things show up like they should, so I won’t make the site “live” again until everything tests properly.

Thanks for your patience!

Warmly,

Jennie
