Welcome to the new vdubber site blog.
We've set the blog up to provide a dedicated channel of communication for site related news, events, shows, and any other stuff related to vdubber, and the website in general. This is mostly as we are having a bit of a rethink about how the site works. Some changes have already been made, such as the addition of the Wall, and the opening up of permissions to promote more site activity, which so far seems to be working quite well, but there is still quite a way to go before we get the site to where we would like to be.
We feel that a segregation between the stuff that happens for the site, and the stuff that happens elsewhere, is better, so we have chopped around the old automatic male and female friend accounts created on joining, and merged them into one account, (This one). And we will now post all site related, and administrative stuff via this account. If you do not have vdubber in your friends list, we will get around to adding it to all accounts, this means that you will always have a direct line of communication to an admin, should you need it, and we will always be able to keep in touch with you to let you know about critical issues should they arise.
There's still plenty of stuff planned with the site including another major update, which will be started over the coming weeks. Most of the changes will be under the decklid, but there will also be some more noticeable changes too.
We will be having a major rethink about the ads section, as this is very much underused. Compared to most classifieds systems, it's quite well featured, but something is causing it to be overlooked, and we will also look at better promotion of other areas of the site too.
Our attempts at trying to purchase the old veebo website, seem to have amounted to nothing, it would appear that the owner has simply dropped out of the scene. This is a shame as we would love to have taken over the member-base and migrated the content across, but by our reckoning, eventually those members that enjoyed using the old veebo site, will eventually find their way here.
Please feel free to make suggestions for improvements, and above all, dont forget to contribute. Each interaction with the site, no matter how small helps to make it more interesting for other users.
Next month we will be reviving the monthly competition, and in an announcement to be made soon, we will be listing out the prizes for the coming months, which include a 6 months subscription to either Volksworld, or Camper and Bus magazine.
So why not get into practice, and start posting to see how many points you can get.
