The revenue from the site will go to offset the hosting and server costs (just like the past). I do plan to try and get some advertisers (which can be challenging with forums sometimes) so if I can land some then we will be cash flow positive and I will try to find ways to take care of our awesome team. I'll also make a commitment to donate to charities and support our members when they do things like events to raise money for charities. You know the kind of things like the Susan G Komen walk for a cure (womens breast cancer). I'd like to sponsor our members and do things to be a good member of the community. Yes, Interference was an investment for me (both time and money) I don't want to hide around that fact but please have some faith in knowing I will try to find ways to take care of the people who take of this site. It might be in the form of tickets to shows, flights to Ireland, CDs, a gift card to Starbucks, etc. If the gettin' is good the goodies will be better if the pickin's are slim then we all just have to go hungry and wait for a boom.

I'm a little bit nervous about all of this- I will have some of you know.

I'm contemplating ringing my therapist.

An example might be when someone uses the same name on other sites and gets a stalker. Others have something in their life change like a last name or event that makes their name no longer relevant and want to get it updated. Each site has their own policy on this. Let's talk about this more after the move.
It would be awesome if we had the ability to change our names! You know, people create names depending on what they're into at the time. And I think it kinda sucks that they have to stick with it for the rest of their life! lol. I mean, we are allowed to officially change names in real life so I don't see why usernames shouldn't be allowed to change. Besides, I have seen a modified username lately. Slightly different name but same join date and post history. So I'm sure it's do-able.

Indeed, I fully support your requests to finally have your name officially changed to Poodlesque.

Andy, please make it so.

Admins have the ability to change users names, but honestly I've only changed people's names a few times and usually its because of special circumstances like someone used their real name by mistake or maybe someone really wants to just shorten the name or change it into their nickname, as long as its obvious to all the members its the same person I dont see it as a big problem. I think it would be too confusing if members were able to completely change their names.

I don't have much to chime in at this time, as I've been shamefully delinquent in getting myself up to speed with the new features due to an exceptionally hectic 'real life' lately. But what I have seen looks great; as already mentioned, there are several cool new features, while at the same time the basic look and flow of the site remains the same old familiar Interference. It's like most any other upgrade; we'll probably all go through a little disorientation at first, because this or that button or link isn't exactly where it was before, hey what's this funny-looking new icon do?, some of the formatting is slightly but noticeably different, etc. But they're all minor things, the kind of stuff that becomes habit quickly, and before you know it you've forgotten it was ever any different. Andy and his staff have been so patient and responsive in addressing our questions and obligingly tweaking this or that function a little in response to our concerns. We're in good hands. And as far as the day-to-day moderating of the forums, like Sicy said, none of us are going anywhere, so y'all already know what sort of hands you'll be in there.

Thank you Elvis for creating this place, keeping it going all these years, and seeing to it that the management of the site will be in good hands heading into the future, and good luck with your new endeavors.

Also chiming in to add my complete support. Real life has gotten a bit overly busy these past few weeks (finals, work, and more MBA classes) but I'm really jazzed by the changes that are coming down the road. Andy has been really great to work with, very open to hearing us all out and to being flexible. I for one am excited about the direction. I hope everyone will be willing to keep an open mind and to continue to make this place the biggest and baddest (in the best possible way of course) U2 community anywhere.
