META: site update? Press the button?

Submitted by soupsnake on May 26th, 2018 at 9:06 AM
Several weeks ago there was a similar thread asking about when the new site would be going live. A mod said that the site was done and they just needed to hit the button to send the it to the matrix or the nexus or some other futuristic sounding place. Has the button been pressed? Are we in the Netrix? Is the new site shockingly similar to the old site?

Agree wholeheartedly. I engaged with the site (both app and web) much more when the iOS HD app existed. I hate the current app so much I deleted it off my phone. And now visit the site much, much less frequently than I used to.
I would actually buy the HD app for like $20...that’s how bad current state is.

When Brian killed HD, he said he gave every opportunity for the developer to save it and keep it active. But they couldn't work something out. Don't know the details, but I'll give some credit to, at least, trying. Because yeah, the site app sucks. Though I'm posting on it now, it rarely actually posts the post for me.

Well, I hope no one was asking the mods because we're as in the dark on this question as everyone else, or at least I am anyway. I am sure Brian or Seth will eventually ring in, if not in this thread then in one of the next few. 

I just hope I still have the ability to delete my own shitposting, because that above everything else is the ability that I enjoy the most.

There are several people that have retained their powers and occasionally even exercise them, but those are folks that are overall far less active here than I tend to be. 

It's part of what makes me chuckle whenever someone asks for moderator action on something and I don't see it for days because....well.....I guess it was missed. After all, I only read a "statistically significant" sample of posts.

I posted this same info with a specific date in a post yesterday. Brian said the new site was a few weeks away on April 13th and then a few weeks later Seth indicated it was a flip of a switch and ........ nothing.

We are in limbo right now because everyone needs to be on hand when we launch, and one of the key guys just had a baby and I have been out of town. In the meantime we are doing some tweaks to the ads. Believe me I want to get going on this too but I need to be there for it, not working off my phone.

So, you all need to be there because you want to party together celebrating an event that has been long in the making?  Or is it a situation where people need to be at their "stations" slowly turning on the power and activationg functions? /s

Regardless, when (if) this event happens and the new site launches, I may find religion.

"There for it"?

If only we had a world-wide network interconnecting billions of devices so that humans could coordinate and interact despite disparate geography, a sort of "Internet" if you will.

Hang on, I'm gonna call Al Gore and let him know about this idea.
