RE: A fine announcement
So you're chief now? what's going on? This is a bit too obscure to figure out from the outside...

RE: A fine announcement
Yeti is resigning. *I think it's safe to say, NONE of us mods want him to… but he's made his decision clear and firm.

He's given us a fair amount of time ( October 1st ) to be off his server, and find a new home for ConCen.

The overdue bill was almost entirely paid by the member iC1 mentioned. Thanks again *you know who!!!*

We mods, have been trying to sort out life without paypal. Right now, I can't even guarantee we'll stay with, and keep the Payza, OR Flattr accounts we've opened. Flattr has monthly fees, and only pays you once a month! You also need a money bookers or paypal account to even then receive that money!! ConCen also credits each donator 2GB per $US to their upload…. and the flatter donations appear to be anonymous… which is making crediting donators, or even knowing who they are, impossible. Payza….. hasn't been a walk in the park yet either!

The good news is…. come october-ish, we will no longer have to come up with $150.00 a month to keep this place going…. but probably around $70.00 or so…. which should take a huge weight off the shoulders of ConCen! Bad news is… I think we're anticipating set up fees to make the move(s).

We're also going to be moving from the current torrenttrader software to opentracker… a more tech savvy mod can give you details on that if necessary. *I believe this must be done before october first also.

We're talking about bringing on an extra mod or two… cause we're really going to need the help.

If anything else major happens… we'll keep you posted.

RE: A fine announcement
Thanks April for the updates, although I didn't agree with Yeti on some issues. He did keep Concen going and put up with a lot of bullshit in the process. He did care about the site and did what he could to keep it running despite others hell bent on shutting it down.

Since Yeti is leaving, when appropriate..please post a new snail mail address for those who wish to mail in donations and advise when the new address will go into effect.

One chapter closes and another one opens. Lets all hope we are all here a year from now with this site going and a internet that is still relatively free to exchange ideas, opinions and important information.

Sure thing shortwave...
Hopefully by the end of next week, give or take a few days, we'll have a new snail mail address up. Started working on it this morning... Smile

RE: A fine announcement
You staff people all rock. Thanks for keeping us informed and keeping the ball rolling.

Yeti, thanks for all your hard work over the years, and I hope the reduced workload allows you to proportionally reduce stress in your life. I know its been a long time coming, and even though I'm sure you'll still be around, I wish you all the best. I've got to admit, I'm a bit aprehensive, not because I have a lack of faith in whoever ends up taking up the reins, but because on the tech end, this site has run damn near perfect the entire time I've been here, and has made large improvements during that time.

Is the intention to keep the site running out of CA?

I'm glad this move was made long after our good friend Shithead McFucknutz started his financial terrorism campaign, even though I'm sure he'll see this as a win. I just wish there was a way to unequivically let him know that it isn't one.

and I didn't mean "cheif" in the patriarchal sense - I simply meant chief of tech - sysop. Who is that going to be? do you know yet? will it be a combined effort? The reason I ask is because I've got an invite to a private tracker that I'd like to send to the person who'll take over Yeti's duties. Its one of the only ways I can donate at the moment.

Anyway, good luck to you (and us all,)l on the transition. I'm sure it will go well.

oh well, at least yeti got hismself a new workstation for his efforts, so his efforts were kind of rewarded. Definitely Eppinoia will see this as a win and that is a great shame.

Ha I can reply on closed threads.. that saved some time. Thanks for the efforts. This should be smooth thanks to yeti handing off the ball all nice like but we do have a bit of work to do. New server is cheaper but crappier, same goes for the technical team (icosaface* and I) but we'll trudge through and equestrian over any hurdles presented us or kill a few horses trying.

* methinks
There are no others, there is only us.

Yes, have we decided on who we are going with server wise?

Well folks…. we made it !!! Grin

We have successfully moved to a new server ! Most of the bugs have been plucked out, and things seem to be running smoothly.

Wanted to thank those who've been donating at our ConCen Flattr account and using the snail mail!! We couldn't be alive and well without you… thanks for stepping up to the plate and helping us pay the rent!

Donations are added up once a month on Flattr, before we can access them, and more then half of the donations have been anonymous…. but, we pulled in $111.00 during the month of September… which is in route to FastTadpole as i type… and will then pay for October's bill!

So we're actually ahead !!! Crazy

*For the few mods that have been breaking their backs the last two months to make this happen… wonderful you are !! [Image: happy0062.gif]
I know it was stressful, gut wrenching, and at times, depressing… yet also exciting, a little fun, and hey…. this really starts a new chapter in the history of ConCen. Glad to have been there! [Image: winking0070.gif]

Onward and upward ! [Image: sign0200.gif]
