Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Dec 10, 2011, 06:07 PM

Kudos to Skinner and his team

They should be commended on the hard work they have done to roll out DU3.

I fully understand the hard work this must have been having just completed a very big database rollout at work where I was the project leader. It was a year long effort.

Excellent job and remember this, most critics don't have a clue how much work this was. But it will be worth it.


Congratulations!!!!

1. Thank you.

We are very excited. Hopefully we'll be able to launch it without too many problems. (Crossing fingers.)

2. There are always problems

What you hope for is they are minor and don't keep you from crossing over.

The real test is how those problems get resolved. And I trust you have the ability from looking at the work you have already done.

14. We'll know it's working if you start posting more, just for fun.

Methinks the last incarnation of DU just about did you in.

23. Well I guess that trumps me

I was about to alert on this thread. Is it appropriate for the Soapbox forum? After all, if we cannot whine about DU here, then logically we should not be able to applaud DU either.

I do hope this works out well. So far it seems kinda quiet and I regret the loss of my old journal posts, even though I have most of them saved in Outlook Express files.

24. Doesn't trump you. I didn't realize where it was posted.

Feel free to alert it. I think the hosts might agree with you.

The complexity of the database is mind-boggling.

Well done guys.

15. Definitely

I know that shipping new software is always both an exciting and stressful time. At least, those feelings haven't gone away for me yet when we do it at work.

Great work here to everyone involved. Looking forward to exploring the great new changes and design updates.

edit to add :

Blimey - that's clever. I never did figure how to get a picture to show for a Youtube link on DU2.

20. The transition has been smooth so far, IMO...

Trust me, with a transition this size, there should've been WAY MORE issues than what I've seen so far.

to the guys @ DU3 Admin!
