Postmortem Site Overhaul

Post by Blood of Nightmares » Feb 12th, 2011, 16:26

It's been over a year now since this announcement and here we are now still waiting for this overhaul to come. What is taking this so long?

If it's such a big deal to you, why don't you do it?

What?

I think this is Daedolon's/Daedalus's/Dimebog's responsibility to overhaul this forum and the main site not me.

I've seen some screenshots of the three different themes that will be available for the main site, so work is in progress BON, that I can tell.

Why spread spoilers?

There are few particular issues regarding the forum theme and main site functionality to be dealt with, then there's the problem with a certain lack of internets for Matt. Obviously we can't celebrate without him.

Well, Umnir could probably drink enough for two.

That may well be, but you can't celebrate Posty without its heart present.

Well you had over a year and you could have overhauled the site no more than a couple of months by now. Why is taking this so long?

Also tell me, Daedalon what is the true reason why you didn't overhaul the site over a year ago? Were you originally going to at the time when you made that announcement (at least why did you make it in the first place)? If so, did something unexpected happened?

I think I remember long ago catching a glimpse of a Silver postmortem site when I clicked on the Postmortem logo above but it quickly redirected to this forum.

You know last year 2010 when you announced that site overhaul which you could have done by then (as the site would have been overhauled by now). I'm just asking why there is a long delay since then.
