    Here are few updates to keep everyone in the loop with what's happening with DN Trade.

    Maintenance
    The site will be down for approximately 30 minutes on Monday night around 9pm-10pm for scheduled maintenance. I'll make a post 15 minutes before and send out a push announcement via Tapatalk.

    Mods/Admins
    FPR and Ned have been helping me with the transition but it's time to let them off the hook :) Likewise, findtim has been kindly helping out with moderation until my friend and colleague (Atom/Andrew) got up to speed with the backend of the site. I've also arranged things at my end so I can now spend more time on DNT and Atom is going to become an Admin and help out where needed. Now that has happened, Tim can just be Tim! I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their help and they're always welcome back.

    New Site
    Nothing fancy, just updating the forum software and making a few tweaks, but I'd also like to compile lots of the good resources discussed here in a more accessible fashion. Ned and FPR had already started this and given me lots of ideas, so I'll be chipping away at this. I'm aiming to have the new site ready early 2013 but I'll keep everyone posted. I'd definitely appreciate some testers so let me know if you're interested in helping.

    DN Trade Meetups
    I've created an account on http://meetup.com/dntrade where we'll be scheduling workshops and meetups in the future. Initially they'll be covering the basics to help newcomers get started. I'll post more about this when I have more info.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Thanks chris, its been a great experience and i was glad to help out, i'm thrilled you have had a smooth as possible transition and i am excited for the NEW DNtrade , i'm also thankful to Ned and FPR for their support as well as the other members who have stated " give the guys a go" , atom taking on a new roll with his experience is also exciting for the future of DNT.


    As i have said in past posts DNT members mostly moderate each other which is what i REALLY like about DNT, the banter is great and very few times does it step outside the rules, i'm going to enjoy going back to "findtim member" , its a tough gig as a admin/mod and all members should respect what DNT is providing for us.

    We didn't have to take the forum offline tonight as expected.

    Tapatalk has been updated.

    The problem of Tapatalk on iOS crashing when there are no new messages still exists from what I can see.

    Cheers,
    Chris
