State of the Site adress Q4 2020
« on: January 28, 2021, 05:25:08 AM »
I;m going to try and do this at the end of each Month after the quarter ends.

So for the last 3 months of 2020:

What was accomplished

1. Migration to a host and multiple years of hosting set up.
2. Maintenance page up, and site plan made.
3. Fixing (replacing) the database errors caused by Rowan's deletion of the database (Which actually started like in July upon review of the admin logs....)
4. reserving as many names as possible for returning members.

What was NOT accomplished yet

1. Site Base redesign.
2. re-implementation of the GU reporter code and GUR.
3. Migration from SMF to a platform that can handle being a one stop shop.
4. The GU app
5. New Logo

What has been accomplished in the first month of 2021

1. Domain name secured for years to come.

Q1 2021 goals

1. Finish basic redesign of main site
2. Get GUR back up and running correctly in new design
3. New Logo finished and New GU banner Done
4. Get Zel's svc repository running.

Q2 2021 Goals.

1. Get racing subsystem operational and in beta
2. Get blogger/Writing system operation and in Beta
3. Get art gallery into operational and into Beta
4. Set up Cafe Press.
5. Finish any outstanding Q1 goals

Q3 goals

1. Finish Q2 goals and get at least once system into Release format.
2. Have saved enough money to hire an App developer to help make the GU app.

Q4 goals,
1. Get the site back to at least 1000 members, with 100 actives.
2. start forming affiliations with other websites.
3. Get non obtrusive advertising set up. (see the buttons on the bottom SMF/Helios puts on there? stuff like that.)

Ideally by the end of 2021 I want everything back up and running.  probably not going to happen given my job, but we'll see.  These goals are site wide only, and do not include any projects or personal content I will be making.

What's your plan for getting 1,000 members? going to buy ad space or something?

beleive it or not, we got 1000 members in under 2 years roughlymnatively orignally, I did it before I will fo it again most likely, albiet i have less time to work on it.

Also I;ma active on lots of social media, so if i get the people i know over here after i get some content, should not be hard.

I stated this  Quarterly goals thing because i need to be using GU as a "practice of best practices" as is I have a shot of controlling the web presence of an international company,  and I wanna be ready for the interview.

Crossing fingers

Unless something major goes wrong, I plan on having the base re-desgn for GU done this weekend.  then hopefully it won;t be super had to get the GUR code working.  Then i can start adding modules as I get them done
