    Preview the new Gallifreyan Embassy website 3.0 today! June marks our 24th anniversary. As we head into our 25th year, we will do it with a new website. Although much of the content from this existing site has migrated to the new one, it is a completely new site from the ground up. This means you will have to re-register on the new site as your current account will not automatically work on the new site. Existing accounts will need to be recreated.

    The new site has been in development over the last month, and while we are opening it up to preview and use now, please note that the new site is still being worked on and being built. Certain features we hope to have soon are still not there yet.

    As with any change, there are going to be some pros and cons. We are using a completely different CMS (content management system) and thus there will be some differences from what we are used to with our existing site we are using now. Not every current function/feature will carry over, but it offers many other options not available now including some of the behind the scenes functionality that we will be of great benefit.

    Today marks the beginning of the transition period to the new site. The domains and remain the same. If you are landing on our site bypassing our front splash page, you will eventually want to update your bookmarks, otherwise no need to make any changes.

    In 2005, as part of our 20th anniversary at that time, we updated our website to the interactive site it is today (our 2.0 site). We had no idea at the time it would be as successful and popular as it turned out to be, and we owe that all to you, the visitors that use our site. The four years of content that you provided here is not going away. This site will continue and will serve as an archive of the last four years. On June 18th, we will close new registrations on this site though as all new registrations will at that time go through our new site.

    The new site is a cleaner looking site which we hope will be easier to use and as well for us to maintain. As mentioned earlier, there will be some differences and it will offer new features, but you will also notice some familiar features absent at this time. Some of the absent features such as our current "Web Resources" we have currently, we hope to add to the new site in some manner in the near future. In the meantime, all the resources, content, etc. on our current site will continue to operate and function.

    Without further ado, here is the Gallifreyan Embassy website 3.0

    Feel free to register and start using the new site.

    Some items of note:
    The forums are laid out a bit differently than what you may be used to with most forums. We may be able to make it look more like a traditional forum in the future. Everything you see on the new site now, may not stay. Some of the content is directly taken from this site, but will most likely be revised for the new site in time. The new site is a 'fixed width' website unlike the current site (i.e. it will not expand to fill your browser if you use your browser in a full screen mode). This could change in the future. The new site has not been tested on every browser on every platform as of yet. Please report any problems or difficulties you may encounter.

    A new website is like a new house. It takes a little time to settle in.

    Will we have to re-register or will our old IDs and passwords be treansferred to the new site? It wasn't mentioned in the article so we'll need to know how to handle the changover.
