Group of Guys
a Band of Brothers actor review site
site status update 
1st-Jan-2009 03:00 pm
thanks to my generous friend, bookshop, we have a domain on her host: groupofguys.notquiteroyal.net. if you've bookmarked or linked to the site anywhere, please update to this new address.

i have only moved over the first two tiers of pages so far (the index and the sidebar-mentioned pages) because i don't have ftp access to the old host any more and will have to do everything manually. none of the actor pages, movie review pages, or cap pages are relocated yet. i will get to them as quickly as i can, but as i also have to edit each and every webpage file's links/image references from the old host to the new host, this will be very time-consuming.

feel free to let me know who your favorite guys are and i can get those pages up first. damian, donnie, and ron are the obvious ones, so you don't have to mention them.

i will do the actor pages in popularity order, then alpha order for the guys not requested, then the caps and reviews in roughly chronological order since that's how i have them backed up on cds (14 cds worth of caps). after all the caps are up, i will work on updating the links here at this comm so that the archives are correct.

i have a few more movies ripped for new caps, but i will wait until everything is back up before i post any new ones. i also got two cap donations recently and i'm sorry to say those will have to wait too, but i will get to them eventually.

i hope to have everything back to normal before the site's two-year anniversary on march 20 and i'll keep you posted as things progress.

I'm so glad you were able to work something out!
Feel free to let me know if you want/need any help.

thanks for the offer! if you'd like to lend a hand, now that the actor pages are up it would help me if someone would open each of them and check that the header and bio table images are appearing correctly. the cap sample pics are in the movie folders, so those won't come up until that movie is uploaded, so i (or a volunteer) will have to check them all again once everything is reset, or i guess we could just do that after the caps are up to save time. and at that point i (or a volunteer) will also have to open each movie page to check that all the caps are popping up.

i think the only other thing would be updating cap links in this comm's posts, but i'm not sure if anyone could edit the posts if i gave them mod privileges. when i was a bbc mod, i could delete or filter other peoples' posts but i don't think i could edit them. or is that a setting i could activate on the comm memberships list?

I'll get started on that :)

I don't think anyone other than the original poster can *edit* posts, as opposed to deleting them, etc.

ETA: Thanks to the magic of tabbed browsing and the End key, I've checked all the pages and the tables/pages look fine.

Great work! I think quite a few of the new people in the fandom would be most interested in seeing the caps from "AKA", so I think those should be given priority.

thanks, that occurred to me too. that was one of the first movies i capped anyway, so it will be caught soon as i chronologically upload the files, which is how they're backed up on cd.
