So Close, Yet So Far

Some of you may have seen the new Gamers With Jobs site design up for a brief time the last couple nights. We're close to having it nailed down, but there are a few database issues that continue to plague us. We'll launch as soon as we can, sorry for all the ups and downs.

In the mean time, feel free to send doogiemac cookies and milk for all his hard work on getting this rolling.

*Update* With the holidays fast approaching, you'll be safe from another round of insanity until (at earliest) next week some time. Have a good weekend!

*chuckle* And here I thought I was going nuts when I just saw the new design not more than an hour ago and then back to the old design now. I was clearing cookies, cache and all sorts temporary web files trying to figure out why Mozilla was remembering the old site. Thanks for the update and proving that I'm not as insane as I thought I was. Good luck!

Stupid Internets.

The new design looked awesome guys and it's going to rock many faces when it's done. One thing I also noticed it that the forum list didn't show which forums had new posts in them. That may have been the database issue but I thought I'd pass it along.

I was doing the exact same thing. It was damn nice, best of luck getting it up and running again!

Yep, you got it. Like Certis said... so close, yet so far. We'll get there sometime soon. Thanks for your patience, everybody.

Awwww; come on! I liked what I saw. Now I want the shiny new toy.

I thought I went insane last night.

All I saw was the holder page with Rabbit's article. I never got to see the new design. Any screenshots out there?

Again? Isn't that the third time this month?

Yeah I did the same things, it's crazy I was like thinking my browser went crazy, lol it's just one of those things

Good luck with getting it up, I'll scan and e-mail you some cookies.

I don't think the cookies and milk will survive the flight from New Zealand so I'll just eat them myself, unless theres a way I can email them to you? Some one should get on to that pronto.

Damn, now I'm curious

I just got an e-mail about that!

I kept refreshing over and over again to make sure that their database stayed all lubed up and ready. Load testing is an important part of new site design rollouts.

Just doing my part.

There was a whole thread on the new design which has now disappeared into the Ã…ther.

Yeah, what Jayhawker said.

I'm chomping at the bit to see the new design. Thanks everyone for $#@% mentioning it and not showing any #$%!@ screenshots. Thanks. Just...

By the by, maybe I should nudge back my coffee intake.

The new design is gorgeous, kudos to all those involved. I look forward to seeing it up and running again.

The new design looks great. Many thanks to those involved.

Keep on truckin', gang. I'm sending good vibes your way.

OoooOOOooooOOOoooo (<- vibes)

Sry, I can't rez.

I saw it, shimmering like a beautiful vision, then it passed like a mirage when I approached it again.

Here you go, doogiemac

I wasn't sure I wanted to post it on the front page, so I sent it via PM. I think it was just a Google Analytics one.

It's a frequent occurrence with me.

Forward it to Certis. It will surely help them.

Mmm... delicious.

So, does that mean we'll have a functioning search feature now?

So, no screenshots? Has Certis had anyone viewing the new look "taken care of" already?

I dug myself out of the casket last night. I will not be kept silent!

From what I noticed: YES!
