|It's about time... |
Thursday, 22nd of October 2015 - IronSinew
To borrow Starcraft 2's catch phrase, it IS about time, isn't it? What's about time? That NetNexus got a new layout, look, and some sorely-needed upgrades (mobile-friendly? responsive design? much easier to manage/update?).
We will be re-launching the main site soon and with it will come a lot of platform upgrades. If we've done our job well, it should feel like the site you've always used and loved. We would appreciate it if the users could help us test out the dev site for the nearly-completed main site and its forums. We'd love any feedback about it, or if you find any issues, submit a help ticket on that site. Any feedback is welcomed on this thread or you can post to the new forum as well if you'd like.

(side note, they are running on two different databases so any forum posts made there and/or account changes will not be reflected on the live site)

I just wanted to post to tell you all how much I appreciate the community here. Thank you. I know we're small. I know there's not been a lot of new content here. Regardless, I'm committed to keeping the site running.
I saw a forum post that was interested in my family, so here goes: My oldest (Ben) started 6th grade this year. Isaac started 4th, Leah started 2nd, and Simon started Kindergarten. This is the only year when they'll be in the same school. Having a kid in 4/7 grades makes all the school events (concerts, dances, etc) that much more exciting.
I currently work for SlingTV. Aimee stays at home with the kids. I love my work. Aimee is excitedly awaiting next year when Simon starts school full time so she can go back to work.
As far as the site is concerned, we just moved the server. There may have been a few glitches, but I think it went well overall. There's always things in the works, but since our track record is so terrible, I wouldn't want to announce anything yet. As my kids get older, I get more free time-- and at least some of that will go into this site (As far as hobbies are concerned, this site is it. I don't have any other hobbies. Nothing.)
Here's another big thank you to all the people who still come to this site, and an especially big thank you to those of you who support us via subscription.
Phat Lewt!... also.. other stuff.

Ok, here's the deal. The staff here at netnexus... we haven't been all that active. I know. We've made the site, and the games, but we haven't kept our end. We haven't been here and providing updates. We haven't been in the chat, on the forums, checking help tickets. We know, bad Admin status. We're sorry.
This site has always been a project. An outlet. A stone with which, we, the admins have honed our skills. But it has also been an outlet for you, the users. I've been a part of this site since the beginning. I was a beta account for nations. I played D+ and TL in it's infancy. Many of you have done these things as well.
I somehow, through luck or skill, maybe a combo found myself being a dev for this site. I'm grateful to this day. Unbeknownst to me, this site, this COMMUNITY set me on the path I'm currently on. I started as a young, bright eyed child. I say child because it's true. 1998. that's when I got to NN. That's when it started. My obsession. creating an entertainment product that provided joy to others. That's what I wanted. That's what it did. It took me years, YEARS to get to a point that I could dev for NN. It happened though, and maybe I've squandered the opportunity... maybe. I have, however, learned a lot. I went from a young teen, to a young man, to a father, to a husband, all with this place in mind, or as a past time. I've changed a lot, and so has this community.
I know we get a lot of flak, from you, the community. We get it for a lot of things. Let's be real, we deserve most of it in a lot of cases. Let's shift gears though... Let's try something new.
We love you, the community. We love what we are because of you, and yes... even in spite of you, sometimes. We've thrived, floundered, skated by, and existed, on the whims of the dedicated users we have had.
This community, has and always will be, a project of passion, entertainment, and experimentation. Our Vip service exists merely as a method of offsetting our server costs. Even at our peak, we've never seen a profit on NN. Honestly, our resident Admin: Tom has footed the bill himself to keep this place alive.
With that in mind, I'm proud to announce that I have granted to as of today active nations accounts, 30 days of Vip privileges. This is a small gesture to the active community that we do, in fact care.
I would also like to take the time to announce this: My indepentent studio(InAnotherCastleGuys) Will be releasing the Technical Alpha of our in development game (WaR3: Rebirth) to all registered NN users. The alpha date is yet to be set. However, over the next few weeks, we will be releasing content, and eventually the alpha client to NN users first. Please check NN daily for updates to this program.
Users granted 1 month of Vip are as follows:
