We keep getting asked by many people to send them invites to the new FurGather site, please just hold on!
We are trying our best to get everything setup again on a new server. The only reason the site is set to invites only at the moment is for staff, and when we open the site, it will not require any invites
I just wanted to let everyone know that in the next coming months (1 at minimum, but not for sure date yet) I will probably be switching the backend of FurGather to a new system.
If I do decide to do this, there are pros and cons to this.
The site will work a lot better than it does now. ...
A lot of other features will be in place and will work better than they do now.
It would be easier to manage the site from an Administrators stand point.
And it will give me a lot more to work with even with the little time I have to continue developing this site.
The look of the site will change a little bit, but it will still be basically the same, familiar to facebook so that it's easy to use
And the biggest con of all is the fact that I will have to clear out the database and start from scratch.
Meaning, everyone will have to setup their profiles and signup once again.
This can be a big con, however, I can very likely backup the site as it is now and host it off of one of my personal servers, this way users that still want to use this version can... however it will stay like this and be unsupported.
A plus to me hosting on one of my other servers is that if there is anything you want to keep that you've uploaded or shared, you can login to this version and get it (Such as pictures)
Either way, I would love to hear what everyone thinks about this before I decide to go this route or not.
In my opinion I think it would be a much better idea to do this.
(Don't worry to anyone that has any ads currently running with FurGather, I will back them all up and convert them to the new system if we do decide to go that way)
