Its hard to take in that today the 1st of September marks the 18 year point since day one of Soul Source. Long time readers may recall that over the years there has always been a sort of failure to mark these landmarks with any memorable events or indeed words.
This time its going to be a bit different, 18 years is a good point, both site wise and real world life wise to take some time to regroup, look at things and then move onwards, That's what have been doing over the last few weeks and here's my take.
The recent major upgrade puts the site in a very good place technical wise
On the admin side (as in the way the site was being run), the customer friendly service mainstream type approach of the last couple of years was a bit of a mistake, maybe needed, but maybe still a mistake. Sure it kept some moaning types happy but overall it hasn't worked that well and more importantly for me has sucked some of the enjoyment out of running this place. So there will be a few changes on that site both on how things are run, how problems are dealt with and the overall approach I have to looking after Soul Source
As always thanks to all the mods past and present who have got us to this point, it's always appreciated.
Of course big thanks to all the members who have made this place what it is, without you as they say it be squat
Thats it - the most major landmark yet, 18 years now since day one - blimey
