Site Ideas for Change...

Recommended Posts

Good,  IPS board was zippo help on that one.   Effectively there we 2 choices for a database search engine in the background.  We were using the one classified as more efficent given the amount of articles we have, but they apparently did not test the unread stream with the other search engine resulting in the issue.  

 

We reverted back to the default and now the issue is solved.

@AH64ID and others, can you verify that the unread content stream is now fixed?   

Looks good! Thank you!

I forget if this was mentioned earlier, but is there an automatic reminder to "re-up"  when your year subscription is almost over? 

 

If not, this would be greatly appreciated by myself and probably others. :spend:

 

Not sure. I don't see an email notification in the system. I'm really not sure what it will do. :shrug:

 

Door is now closed on the "Expired Members". We are now on the subscription system now.

@Mopar1973Man  I am going to mark it on the reporting so we can see what effect it has on traffic.

 

I'm pretty sure it going to sink pretty darn good.

 

If it fails I guess it will be time to just close up the site permanently. It's totally up to the members at this point if they want to see it live on they will pay the fees. If not well that will be the end of the website. No, I will not sell the information, and no I will not give it to anyone. It's up to all you the members.

 

The old donation system is more like Socialist ideas. Praying that the small percentage (less than 2%) of people will hold it up. Now its completely fair where everyone chips in a small amount to keep it going. 

 

Like I said if it doesn't survive after this I will be closed down for good.

@Mopar1973Man it would prob be a good idea to give everyone that hasn't donated the test drive profile rather than expired so everyone has 30 days to adjust before being limited.

 

IE all expired members get pushed to test drive then let the 30 day count start.

Ummm... There isn't any way to do that. If I did then as soon as they login the software would see the join date is past 30 days and automatically kick them to the expired member. If I lift that filter then they are stuck there permanently getting a free ride for life. 

 

I could move all 5,000 plus members but as soon they login they get booted back out to Expired if there join date is 30 day or more.

Just not a good day for me. I'm extremely tired. Frustrated and stressed out... If it runs and there is good income its stays up. If no one buys into the system then I'm closing the doors. 

 

Last month running completely in the red, not even enough to pay the bills. Let alone pay me or anyone else. This can't continue.

Ponied up and subscribed the full deal.... me thinks that's cheap considering I had another slack day today at work and read all 10 pages of Quad posts before I jump.... priceless info.

I noticed though that before subscribing my account said I was platinum anyway I figured that previous donations had meant I was in already for the year but I went ahead anyway and renewed as it felt like cheating

I figured I didn't but this site is a big help in keeping the wheels turning on the truck and I see it also as info that saves costly mistakes and wrong purchases, bearing in mind there is a lot of BS on this old interweb thingy but here it's more fact and experience

we will have to wait a few weeks to a month to see honestly.   The test drive account is a good idea as it gives people time to look around.  

 

 

We have a ~%80 bounce rate, as in people come then leave and never come back.  These changes dont effect that number so traffic and ad money stays pretty similar. 

 

active members are what we need to keep track of over time.  That 1 post per day thing may make people not want to visit over and over, but only time will tell.  

 

I think we will have to play with the $$ for subscription to find the happy spot, it might be $20 a year average or $5 a year average to capture the highest % of people paying.  %5 of the site paying $5 a year is a lot more money than %.05 of the site paing $20 a year.
