SORRY, SORRY, TRYING TO REDESIGN IT
Fine, we'll not do the geocities site for the rest of time. I hope you're happy with a background that does not include animated gifs and zero Victors midis in your life, you philistines.
Anyway, this is the New Site. There will inevitably be some hiccups as with any large complicated activity. Please feel free to email or comment about them and we'll look into it. Here is a bolded alter-ego discussion about it.
Why did it take so long?
We missed an aggressive date in August and then I didn't want to upset the apple cart during football season. Then bandwidth got extremely low for us, the MGoBlog half of the equation, with a weird spate of folks being very ill at the same time hockey and basketball went to their respective Final/Frozen Fours. We didn't really pick the project back up until April.
I thought the August date was going to be a miss because this was a bear of a migration from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 for a site with millions of comments and hundreds of thousands of nodes, poorly maintained by a web coding dilettante (that would be me) and using various Drupal 6 alpha modules that never transitioned to 7, let alone 8. Some functionality was lost. (RIP hellbanning.)
So what are the bells and whistles?
Step one was attempting to replicate current features and port the site to 8. There isn't a ton of new functionality. The main new feature is a responsive design that will work on phones and tablets in addition to PCs. This means we don't need to have specialized apps anymore. The new site is also a long term platform that we can build new stuff into; features on the old site stopped happening because I was perpetually hoping to have a new site in the near future. Now diabolical plans can transpire.
One new thing: comment threads are collapsible, so when that guy who fights with that other guy starts fighting with that guy you can just click the collapse button and move on with your life.
So there are no apps?
The apps were just a mobile-friendly way to view the site and are currently discontinued. If we have functionality we want to add that requires an app they might come back.
I have a problem with this!
Yeah, if you click on "read more" it doesn't take you to where you left off. That is a known issue. Voting is also missing from some article types.
Where's the midi?
You'll have to ask HUEL… er, Human Element about that. Human Element develops websites, usually well and sometimes very very badly but on purpose.
