I've gone through what the Basenotes team is currently going through in my line of work. Migrating a website to a new platform is an extremely time consuming and difficult process. It's very easy to forget components of the old website in transition. Listening to your users and fixing critical components and bugs is obviously a main priority for the first few months. My biggest learning from my own situation is you will always have people leave during the initial transition phase, some will not be happy, you just have to be prepared for that. There will always be people that are opposed to the change and unwilling to re-learn how to use a website. Those that tend to stick around are usually the loyal users, not a bad thing for us Basenoters. More users will continue to sign up and contribute while we loyalists will most likely be here for a significant duration as well. As long as I see the main contributors like hednic, alfarom, mikeperez...to name a few are still sticking it out, I'll gladly stay a part of this community.
