Hey, you've kept this quiet!

Andy, you said it's to be a stand alone site, will it replace SPC entirely or expand on what's already here?

Essentially this will be the new home for SPC, but with much more functionality. We want the members to have a much better experience and to move our community forwards but we are restricted by what we can do on the current Forum alone.

The new site will make it much easier for the Team to update.

We think the members will love the new functionality but we will welcome feedback and suggestions from Members once we are up and running.

Regards

Philip

I think I understand what's happening, thanks Philip.

I guess the new site will basically be a replacement for the now defunct spc.org.uk and the forum will stay as is with maybe some improvements added to make it easier to navigate?

I also assume (now I have had a chance to think about it) that by "stand alone, independant site" you mean that there no longer be an affilliation with Hiroboy or spc.or.uk?

Sounds cool anyway, I'm just interested in what direction the new site will take.

Hi Ryan

What the members will have is a website plus a Forum; you'll be able to access the forum via the website. It's just that the website gives us scope to move forwards and include much more cool stuff. 8)

We still retain our very strong affiliation to Hiroboy as you will be able to see when we go live.

The stuff we have planned is really excellent and we think you will love it, we do. :D

Regards

Philip

We are now running with a 48 hr trial period.. This will be to ensure the new website can operate correctly. If we find issues we cannot resolve promptly we will revert back to the old forum.spc.org.uk.

As you may know it takes a few hours to swap over and Iron out location issues.Because of this we have lost a minimum number of posts that covered the last 26 hours or so.. If you have noticed a post is missing feel free to repost it.

Thanks.
