adminabuse Revamping/migrating [E]



Hi folks,

I am not sure how many of you know of me, or have been here for the last many years.

I had created [E] along side a bunch of friends 12 years ago (yes, its been that many years) and as life become more complicated, my involvement with hardware in general and [E] in particular started to fall by the wayside.

I have been paying for the servers and keep it "operational" all these years, but things are really starting to burst at the seams (particularly as some of the prolific admins/mods like vijayninel, mav2k, marun, etc. got busy as well).

I have never had the heart to pull the plug on [E] (although it cost me close to Rs 40,000 per year to keep it running). I had to spend close to half a day to fix a bug which caused a lot of the images, etc. to disappear. I simply don't have that sort of time anymore - and if I did, I would rather spend it with my family than fix bugs which should not be there in the first place.

I have decided to move things a bit. VBulletin, and the version we are deployed on, is archaic and very brittle (I know a bit about it, having maintained a VB site for 12 years)

I am formulating a plan of migration. I would like to replace Erodov.com | India's top technology news and reviews site for mobiles, laptops, cameras, software, and downloads, with forums.' software with something modern. Something which does not start breaking the moment I look away. And i would like to give the keys to the house to some of the most active community members - if they want it, i.e.

I have my eyes set on Discourse. I have used it a few times in the last few years, and it has proven quite useful. As long as we are able to transplant our community successfully, we should do just fine - our culture and what defines us as [E] will carry on.

Let me know what you guys think of this plan.



Love,
Karan aka kidoman

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


Happy to here from you Karan sir after such a long time.

Sadly most of us old members have been in the same position as you, occupied by various other aspects of ours lives. I myself come online mostly to lurk around the trading section. E will always have a special place in our hearts and i believe everyone here feels the same way. I would love to contribute in someway possible to keep it alive. I don't have a robust technical or programming knowledge but if there is any other way that i can help,please let me know.

Regards,
Ajay

I am back to forum after a long, always had high regards for E community. Life is complicated, what kind of help do you want ? Can we make it lite weight in terms of resources (server cost and maintenance)

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


Karan,
I've been a member for very many years and it was heartwarming to read your message. Kudos to your and the team's efforts for keeping E alive all these years.

I would love to contribute in E's journey going ahead. I'm not a techie but will contribute monetarily.

Going on a tangent perhaps, but I also think E can be much more than just a discussion forum; there is a wealth of tech knowledge here and i think E should be reaching a wider audience: for example in-depth tech reviews (articles/youtube), tech how-to guides, what to buy guides etc.
keep up the good work.
cheers

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


I am not clear about this, but is this the reason why the site is loading like shite for last couple of months? I have to wait like 10 seconds for a page to load, and 2x the time for an image to load. Yet funnily enough the site loads much faster with a VPN! Its sort of bonkers really!

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


Wow!

Someone is still alive. Whose life hasn't become complicated bro? My trouble and strife (wife) is kicking my ass all the time. That doesn't mean I am not lurking around. I visit daily.

I know agent is not active as he used to be. But many new pals are. Time to give it to fresh blood. We oldies with tummy will hold a glass of beer and sit on a couch? I am active into AV equipment now and I can always contribute on that side.

Cost has never been a matter. Now the time is. we will figure out how to handle fixing bugs. shall we?
Let the keys be with ya pal. i'll look after.

You have set the course now. Go ahead and sail. we will back you up.

Cheers,
Marun

I would love to be a part of the moderator team and also help in redesigning. I am a second level seller on Fiverr in webdesign so shouldn't be a big issue.

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


Hello! Is there something I could do? Pitch in funds or take care of hosting? What are the requirements? I have been on E pretty much for 8 years but only created a login recently. You can check my profile on TE (same name) where I have been active since 2007.

Re: Revamping/migrating [E]


I made my account just about a week back but have been lurking for close to 3 months. Never knew sites for second hand components other than olx ever existed until i discovered this. Got a bit scared that you were planning to close [E] lol. Thank you karan for making such a forum. Hope this site can go back to it's good old days
