Block17 - Reborn

PostFri Dec 21, 2012 1:29 am

Welcome back, and thanks for checking us out again. You don't know how much we appreciate it.

Obviously we've been down for a couple of months, without a great deal of explanation. And we're now in a new place, with new furniture and everyone is wearing new name badges. What gives? Well, we had a minor (major) server crash, resulting in the loss of the old board and everything that went along with it. We tried to recover it and bring it back to life, but lacking the miracle working powers required, it was pronounced dead not so long back. But fear not, we've taken it as an opportunity to rebuild Block17 and bring it back to life, possibly turning it into a greater community in the process. A fresh start if you will. The best thing about the old place was the community, and that'll never disappear - infact I was touched by the number of messages of support whilst we were down, so thankyou! Without the community, this wouldn't be here.

So, after weeks of slog and hard work, we're back. All we ask is that you register again, and get posting. To attract users and grow the community we need two things from each one of you. Firstly, we need you to post, to chat, to discuss and to contribute. Don't lurk in the shadows, comment. About anything, everything. Secondly, spread the word. Get on to everyone who used to use the old place and tell them we're back. Tweet about it. Facebook it. Take a picture and slap it on Instragram. Whatever, just get the word out and encourage people to contribute - but again, they'll only stick around if there's something to contribute to.

Enough of my waffle. Thankyou for coming back. Any questions, suggestions, problems or offers of beer, get in touch.

N.B - Oh yeah, you'll be stuck at the "Caleb Folan" rank until you get posting. If that isn't motivation enough then I don't know what is. Cheers to Shaun71 for coming up with the list.

Though the "Marcus Bent" rank isn't much better, I give you that...
