Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

SSC and 2017

Hi Everyone

Sorry for my absence for the majority of the year. I have had lots of personal things going on and heck never thought being a single dad would take up so much time.... but it does :) Plus I have been working a new job as well.

I know the forum are and site design kinda suck and I will be remedying the forums soon, I was hoping for bbpress to release 2.6 but they have been dragging their feet and I may just upgrade to the the RC4 version since I believe it is the last version. The bridge for the vanilla forums which I am using currently isn't really being patched and worked on so there is some issues with it as you can probably notice.

I will still stick with workpress and I will only being upgrading the forums to bbpress since it is more tightly integrated to wordpress and it uses the same user table. So no more bridges or login issues. I will probably do this once my kid is back in school in Sept. between now and then I will be making small changes to the site and updating plugins and hopefully template changes to make site look and act better.

Generally there has been zero spam. But I have taken a hit a little on the SEO side because of the bridge with the forums. So I need to fix some things. Thank you so much for your patience and continuing visits. I didn't forget about everyone. I just been busy :( my pc is showing its age and I should be getting a new one for Xmas so I can start reviewing games again and maybe I might dabble in YouTube :open_mouth:

So thanks again everyone and I am still here.

    Hey D1! o/
    No worries, real life must always come first. ;) The main thing is the forum itself is still here and even tho, truth be told, I do miss the old forums but those damn spammers had to be stopped. So you did the right thing. :)

    Thanks Geraldine. Oh the site will always be here as long as I am :) I just have to figure out a way to make these technology updates to go smoother. Because if I pay for services like IPB or VB I don't usually like the direction of the product and they charge a lot since you constantly need to stay subscribed to get patches or upgrades. Then with open-source products its hopefully picking the right one that is going to always have active enough community to keep it going. Thats why the move to WordPress. :)

    Now my life has calmed down a bit more I can try to rebuild the community and put it back into shape again. I will do it slowly because of my free time is limited to weekends most weeks. Can't wait to get a new PC mine needs upgrading of gfx and I will hand it down to the kid. Then I will be able to play anything for now :)

    That's the way D1! One step at a time and remember, the SSC will one day be included in all real starship databases! ;)

    I still have my game listing I just need to add a few more games to it and figure out how to integrate it into the site so it looks good :) But changes are coming slowly, when winter comes and its cold and snowy there should be more work getting done.
