    Okay, quick update!


    Firstly thank you to all who have bought cocktails, if for some reason you’ve not got a cocktail and you’ve paid for one, please give me a nudge as I might have missed it.


    Secondly in terms of where we are. I’ve been playing around with Xenforo 2 for the forum software, and It’s very similar to what we have at the moment in terms of not being something completely new — but it works lovely on mobile, and is a million times nicer. As mentioned before, I’ll be using Wordpress for the articles.


    I’ve hired a tech person familiar with vBulletin (the current software) and Xenforo who has agreed to convert it the forums for us. And I’ve acquired some additional software which will make Wordpress and Xenforo talk nicely to each other so it will be seamless and won’t seem like there are two different systems on the go at the same time.


    Currently though, I’m working on getting the shopping links fixed again, these have been down for 6 months or so, and have really made an impact on income for the site, so that’s my current priority.


    More updates soon hopefully

    You would have to go back in time (I believe 2008) and make a donation.

    There's a bit of me that thinks the coffee cups should only be for people that donated when we did the original coffee cup drive ten years ago, but some people weren't even here then. So, is people really want a coffee cup, they have until end of Feb 2019 and then coffee cups are sold out forever!!!! Let me know if you want a coffee cup in the PayPal box !

    Thanks JBS1!

    Maybe we can get tropical drinks for the summer ?
    Who knows ?
    Would be fun.
    Sort of like collecting digital tchotchke.
    Maybe you can buy one for someone who has done nice things for you here on Basenotes.
    An after thought on that . Maybe one person would have way to many,
    or they didn't want it displayed on their page.
    A rejected digital tchotchke would be like a Valentine's Day Card that was de-taped from a school desk .
    Crushing
    I myself would like a tropical drink one though.
