Site Under Construction!!!!

Postby gtpforever » Sat Jan 26, 2008 12:26 am

As most of you now know I have taken over Administration rights to the site. I am making this post to inform everyone that the site will be under construction for the next couple months to try to change how everything looks and operates.

The site will also be migrating to a different server for the forum instead of ezboard it will be one called Yuku. Yuku has allot more customizable that what we have at this point. I am not sure how long the transfer will take but I can tell you that they are telling me it should be with in a couple of months. They give this time due to the entire ezboard server is trying to migrate. They are doing the migration by board size.

If there are any questions in regards to this please let me know. I will do my best to make the site what we want and things will be changing for the better or at leased we hope they will.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END-->

Will it look the same?

OQCGP underwent a change to a new Yuku forum and it has the identical layout to the one you started, Troy.

I didn't know that new forums could be started in that main section, you could open up more discussion forums there with better topics....

For example, the main forum we all use already is entitled GTP Talk, it could be renamed to GTP General Discussion, you already have the Announcements and Updates, there could also be many more discussion forums like:

GTP HorsePower Talk -> about modification, how to make your car greater
GTP Exhaust and Wheels -> Discussion about popular wheels and tires
GTP Brakes and Suspension -> Suspension and Brake modification/repair discussion
GTP Appearance -> Discussion how to make your interior/Exterior look better
GTP Classified Adds -> Buy & Sell
Completely Off TOpic Section
Comments & Suggestions

See how OQ is setup for example....
<!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START-->www.oqcgp.net/phpbb3/?f=3...44013f0bb2<!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END-->

We could do the exact same thing here instead of having only the one GTP Talk board. Is this a possiblity?

So if it moves will it still be "gtpworld.com" or will it change to something else?

Also, will it be searchable so we don't have a sudden drop in interest like we did on the GTPworld2?

Sweet, i like the new setup. Now it's like other forums, and should be easier to find topics now that there are sections.

It should remain the same or get even better. I have added search words for the forum so now maybe it will pop up even more when being searched on the net. I am really looking forward to what might happen if we get put on a host site tho cause they can really make your searchability go through the roof. Only time will tell tho.
