Back online, should be for good this time.

Post by VelvetGeorge » Thu May 15, 2014 5:23 pm

May 15th, 2014. We are back up and running. We are on a new server and should be faster. There are automated daily backs ups now, and everything is up to date so we should be fairly safe from malicious attacks. I'm convinced that is what took us down previously, both in January and again in March but I can't prove it.

I have some housecleaning and updates to make in the forum. You'll see some things change as we go. Once re-established I will look into adding value and services to the community. I still think a wiki would be fantastic, but it has to be much more user friendly than the prior attempt. I'm open to suggestions, let me know. Should we have a schematic archive?

Please enjoy the forum and contribute. We've been through hell and back getting this back online, thanks for waiting patiently and a huge thank you for all of the support and offers of donations.

I'll be handling most of moderating myself, so please keep my workload light. I really don't have time to deal with squabbles and name calling. The rules here are very clear, don't attack fellow members verbally - publicly or privately via PM. I'll be quick to hand out temporary or permanent bans for this. There's no place for it here, even when debating EVH! All the negative stuff drags down the entire community and drives away people who might otherwise contribute. I know of at least two famous guitar players who were interested in posting on a regular basis but were driven away by childish bickering and negative attitudes. Let's not let that happen.

Welcome back Metroamp community.

Thank you George. Without this community to help and inspire me, I wouldn't have become an amp builder. Congrats on the re-lauch! Now to starting digging for info on the JTM45/100.

George!

First, glad to see the site back up.

Second, how much of the archived pics did you save? I only had a few tutorials on cab recovers and such, but I probably still have the pics for the threads. Just need to relink them. Anyway, let me know!

Congrats on getting the site going again!
