SHC IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

Post by Ratiocinator on Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:43 pm

April 15: TRANSFER IS COMPLETE. CARRY ON, YOU SEXY PEOPLE.

-------------------

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that some changes will be happening around Silent Hill Community. These changes are nothing major or critical--so no worries!--and hopefully there will be little downtime during the process so it can be quick and easy.

The announcement is that I am no longer going to manage the forums. Let me ease your mind with the first thought that most likely came to your mind: The forums ARE NOT shutting down. What this actually means is that I'm giving the domain name (silenthillcommunity.com) and forum database over to our very own nur_ein_tier. For those that don't know, nur is the web owner of the long-standing, fan favorite Alchemilla Hospital (formerly Valtiel's SH Site).

nur also ran her own forums, located within her site, using the same software this forum uses before merging with Silent Hill Community. It's funny, if you think about it, that the whole process has come full circle. :P What I'm getting at though is that nur is fully capable of running the boards and is one of the "Silent Hill Vets" in terms of online presence.

So why am I resigning my lead role from the boards? Well, I just don't have the time. A lot of things have changed over the years and take a higher priority for my time. My wonderful girlfriend and I bought a house (I can't overstate how much time/money goes into this), my job keeps me on my toes, plus I am pursuing my free time for web design elsewhere (I can only do/be at so many sites at once).

My presence and administration at this board has plummeted for those reasons, among others. I knew for a while now that I should (probably need) to put up my hat. One thing I knew for certain though, is that I WILL NOT just shut down the site just because I don't have the time for it. That would be beyond unfair for you guys. But, at the same time, I can't just keep running these boards without actually "running" it. The moderators (what and Xuch) have been doing a fine-ass, kick-ass job with maintenance but it is also unfair of me to ask them to do this when I myself don't. So the best solution was to contact a close SH friend of mine, whom has plenty of experience running SH sites, and offer her the site... which she happily accepted!

So with that, I want to thank you all very much for making this place what it is. Silent Hill forums, by and large, are relatively not-popular by nature. And when this place first started it was practically dead. But over the months and years we've certainly grown. Very rarely do I come by and see no one online these days and that's a feat in and of itself. I dare say we match and rival the activity seen over at the OG forum Silent Hill Heaven Forum.

Because of that, you guys will always have my thanks. I'm VERY proud of what this place has become. We are a close-knit, level-headed, mature forum; the BEST kind of forum if you ask me. And it's all thanks to you guys.

I will still be around. Probably lurking more than posting but I'll be here. I'll still be a member and retain my "Partner" rank (via my site Letter From Silent Heaven). It's just my yellow gradient border and administrative position will be given to nur_ein_tier instead. And one more time guys: nur will do you guys just as good if not better than I did running the place. :)

When will the transfer take place?
Within 5-7 business days from now.

Will there be any downtime when this happens?
Edit: Yes. The transfer should only take a day or two but I will also need to prep the transition over the weekend. This means locking down the boards (so no new members/posts are made between these times which would be lost after the transfer completes) starting tomorrow up until the process is complete. Sorry guys, but it's the nature of the beast.

Can I still contact you with board questions/issues?
Not anymore. Contact nur_ein_tier, Whitney, what or Purramid_Head

So no help after the transition?
Yes and no. I will assist nur_ein_tier with the entire transfer process and give her tips and tricks afterwards with maintaining the boards. I'll answer any questions she has until she feels comfortable and continue to do so as time goes on. What I won't be doing is adding/changing board features, making/adding new styles, moderating posts/members, etc.

But I love you
You hate to see me go but love to watch me leave. I know. But seriously, I'll still be around as a regular old schmuck. :)

Everything transferred now, just waiting for the name servers to propagate worldwide so it's pointing to the correct server. Things should be back to normal soon. =0) :health:
