I am literally speechless... I logged on and checked the site (as I do every morning) and my jaw just dropped. It seems we had a tama angel swoop in and get us up to our goal... So...

TAMATALK IS UPGRADING!!!

I really can't thank those who helped with this enough. I am just overwhelmed with the generosity you all have shown to this community. We have a great place here and I have all of you to thank for it. Now, hopefully, we can make this a way cooler place too! I will buy the upgrade today. It will take a little bit of time for me to do some testing to make sure things will work right so that everything moves in to the new software correctly. I am ging to go full steam on this to get this working as soon as possible. Give me a week or so... Then get ready for some new goodies at TamaTalk!

Thank you all... You rock!

Strange, my widget still says 37%... :/

Regardless, I'm beyond happy that TamaTalk was able to raise the money! Thanks for everyone that contributed to upgrading the forum - it appears I'm a little late for that. ^_^

Won't stop me from buying a Membership, however. :ichigotchi:

Will the forums/chat be up while the update is being purchased/worked on?

Hey, Admin, you may or may not have answered this before without my knowledge [I've read throughout the topic, but I could've easily missed something], but do you know what program the new Chat is going to be running on? I spend a great majority of my time on TamaTalk in the Chat moreso than the forums-- I still post, just not very often, and I was asking out of curiosity, as earlier me and some other Chatters were questioning this.
We were assuming maybe the 'old' Java Chat, but possibly a better version of that one, as well, seeing as we haven't had it in a while? This being because of the money issues that made the site switch back to the original Flash about a year ago.
Also, is there a way of merging old accounts with new ones? ie; the account I was known best on and posted the most on was ~Pokemon*Mew~ back a while ago, before I registered under this name. I'd prefer that maybe my old posts from my ~Pokemon*Mew~ account be transferred here, but keep the account name Ocean.A v e n u e? [so one could go to my account and see the merged amount of posts from both accounts, and tell them that I was formerly ~Pokemon*Mew~, treating it as if my name had simply been changed, not a full-on new account.] Would that be possible under the new system? And the same going for my register date-- For it to say I registered on February Eighteenth, 2008 instead of March Thirteenth, 2010?
Basically, keep all the account info from my former account and new account under the same name.
Thanks. (:


~Mew

The forums will stay open while I am testing things out. Which ever day I actually do the big upgrade I will have to turn the forums off for a couple hours or something as everything upgrades and stuff. I am going to do my best to make this a smooth transition. I am excited to get started. The software has been purchased and I am just waiting for them to do approval or whatever so I can download the software and start testing.

As far as the chat system goes... IP.Board bas their own version of chat. It is not the old java chat or the current flash one. I am going to see how good it is compared to the current one and we can just see which works best.

I wonder, will the upgrades be, absolutely noticeable regardless of how "blind" you are?
The funding zipped by pretty fast, I'm really surprised.
