Intermittent Downtime / Error Messages

    Hello PurpleFlock Users. Some very big changes will be coming shortly, and will most likely be fully made available tomorrow. However, while these changes are taking place, users may experience intermittent downtime or error messages on PurpleFlock starting in about half an hour or so. This should last around four hours at most.

    We are currently working on adding a functional news and articles page to make PurpleFlock look a lot more professional. This is incorporating a different software, however not to worry, the message board will remain, and all of your user accounts will be untouched. You will be able to also comment and enjoy the use of the new addition with your current accounts tomorrow, without having to sign up again.

    Here is a quick screenshot of how this new home page looks so far.

    Update:

    All of the technical things are done, so there won't be any more downtime or error messages.
    The new home page is currently usable, for the most part. There are a few things that need fixing, such as colors for easier reading, comments need to be fixed so they can actually work, needs to be made more mobile friendly, etc.

    I also need to finish transferring the rest of the articles over. I've already done a few of them.
    It's currently 2 in the morning though, so I'm going to head off to bed. It'll be finished tomorrow!

    Thanks everyone.
    An announcement will be posted sometime soon about this.

    Love the home page but it might be good to have some of the things on it be less than 3 months old just for the sake of updatedness (Its close enough to a word)

    Haha yea that’ll be fixed by tomorrow for some reason all of the articles got ranked in a random order (I think it’s by popularity) but there are filters.

    Thanks guys!

    About the articles being in random orders, I haven't finished moving all of the articles over yet as I have to manually re-create them. I'll have all of them moved over by the end of the weekend and it will all look a lot nicer.

    Yeah, this is looking better than our old boards at br.com

    It has surpassed the old boards, imo. I just wish I could bring over my 600+ comments from there too.

    and a few more of the members - 200 people is pretty neat but this board has so much potential that i wanna share it with everyone (as long as they dont comment on ravens fb posts)

    The first thing to do is scratch the week 17 thread. The Bengals victory still upsets my stomach.
