Hey, there are a few changes taking place at canonrumors.com that I thought I'd tell you about.
1) New server/host
Canon Rumors was moved to a new host last night and I don't think anyone really noticed. What you will notice is an increase in site speed, all measurements taken show a dramatic improvement. We're on better hardware and are running a better optimized setup. This will continue to be tweaked over the next couple of days.
2) Return of Karma
The ratings for forum posts has been a difficult one to figure out, so we're trying out some new things. For now, only a total karma score will show, so you won't see the likes and dislikes broken down. We'll see if that helps keep things honest.
It's now called "Reputation" until I figure out a better name.
It's going to get abused by some people, there's not much we can do about that. We just ask that you don't.
3) New site design
It's coming, looking to clean things up and make them a bit more uniformed between the site and the forum. This isn't in the immediate future, but it will be in the next 60 to 90 days.
