nice, excited about this. Some of those bullet points already got me hyped up. Are you planning on finalizing the website before mcc release, so when new people join from there on this site will be as good as finished? or will it be a slower, step by step process that would include changes over the years?

I'm very excited for this. Hopefully my thread comes in handy when you start implementing changes. Now let's go add to it folks.

My full intent is to have the site relaunched just prior to, or coinciding with, the launch of the MCC. I'll be starting development immediately.

In terms of the stages between now and that final launch, I'm definitely figuring in a beta period before the sitewide switch. From past experience, I think we're probably looking at a period of at least a month.

The company I work for wrote their own software for this. We're exclusive to real estate and real estate related services. You've got the right idea in MailChimp, though. This will -- more than likely -- be our best bet.

Fuckin' this.

It would be fascinating to see what kind of conversion we can pull sending to our database of inactive users. Of course, it would be fair to assume that a large majority of the emails will simply be inactive but hopefully a lot of these remain as forwarding addresses. Either way, our database and sending to these users should be CAN-SPAM Act compliant since they've opted in. Not so certain there's a timetable for sending to these individuals so long as we include an easy to find unsubscribe link.

Nv1, I haven't read into this too far and/or whether or not we'd fall under its support but this seems to be a solid CAPTCHA. Although now that you have the accessibility, you may have something in mind.

are we keeping the name 'thehaloforum' ?

Are you making any staff changes? Removing inactive mods, VIP's, and a new admin maybe?

Are you doing any work to the site as it currently sits or are you just completely focusing your efforts on the rebuild?

I have more questions but I realize others have questions and you are limited on time, I'll keep it short

To reduce spam you can also make a field that must NOT be filled, hide it in CSS, and when the dumb spam bots fill it, they get b&.
