This all happened over a week or two.  The #1 reason for moving was so I'd have 100% control over the forum.  The old froum was nice but when someone had a problem I was unable to do anything to help.  Now, I've got full control.







The forum was going to stay hidden until a certain person leaked a thread on the list.  It just moved up the timeline by a week so it wasn't a big deal.

I'm hoping, people will be more inclined to donate to the new site.

Is there a particular reason that the FAQ section tells me it's only allowed to be viewd by moderators?

Cool!  I'm glad I learned about it now instead of later.  I'm moving in the next month myself, so this is one less thing to get lost in the shuffle.

All the articles have been integrated into the forum.  I'm sure I've mentioned this before but getting the articles up through the forum is much easier then on the website.

True, but you had a nice looking website going.  The info is much more appealing in the website format, the forum format is just to laborous to read and blah to look at.  Can't you have both with just a link on www.4bangerjp.com to the forum?

Well, like I said the website is very labor intensive, especially when not that many people use the website.  It's very static because there's no way to get feedback.  The old forum and mailing lists were almost seperate from the website which was also a problem.  Not to mention product reviews, and how-to's are now dynamic.  All of the people who game me feedback also thought this was for the better.
