    This sounds promising. I just got a brand spank'n new digital camcorder for Christmas, so now I can not only record on to VCR tapes, but I can now upload all my future Hersheypark footage onto the computer. Expect some new videos from me, like Reese's X-treme Cup Challenge, the Chocolate World tour, and general park footage, once I get used to using it.

    Depending on the tape-style, you could probably upload your old videos as well.

    They did have the option of providing forums, but because it wouldn't make sense moving everything again I decided not to add them to the site.

    I've taken notice that parts of the site haven't been getting much use. To solve this I plan on moving most of the parks on the main forums page and merging them into one site section. Once these sections seem to get more discussion in them, I will then move them back on to the main forums page.

    I also plan on doing a few other small things to the site to make it more benefitial.

    Whatever you do, I'm sure it will help in some way or another. It's good to get the whole site used and functioning like a major website. Smile

    Bad news for the update page. I found out this morning went I went on to check it out and it seems like we've used all our allowed bandwidth up on it. This is because of the amount of traffic it has recieved and when you have a lot of visitors, it eats up bandwidth.
    To combat this, I think it might be for the best to downsize the website a little bit, move it to a blog format, and continue the updates there.
    I'll let you guys know of further developments. Wink

    A blog format sounds like a good idea. The forums probably get the most traffic anyways, other than the Attraction 2012 update page. If you think a blog would be a better idea, would we still continue to post video updates at all?

    Yeah, we recieved over 178 visits in the last 12 hours to the website and let me also note that the forums that we've posting in now are NOT going to be affected because they are two seperate sites. So the forums are fine for the time-being. My biggest concern is getting the word out that the website is being moved because this was something unexpected.
    As for video updates, they can easily be uploaded to youtube and you would just need to send the video to me to add to the youtube account. Then I can just add a link to them in the blog.

    Speaking of the blog, I'm going with wordpress which allows 3GB of photos (2,500 photos to be exact). When we reach that limit, don't be too suprised that I either delete a few old posts and/or move them over to a seperate forums page over here. Right now I am currently transfering over all the updates from the Webs website to the blog and I will post the link when I'm finished. Wink

    I've managed to move over all the updates to the new blog, but I still have a few things i want to add to make it more fitting for the site. Here it is:

    There must be something wrong with the page because I'm unable to upload it. Also, we're going to have to inform other sites that post that page of the link change. I know Screamscape is one that directs viewers over here whenever we send them updates. Maybe we can archive the older photos into a thread so they can still be viewed.

    I guess it's a good and a bad thing. I think it's great that we're getting more viewers, and by the looks of it, more contributors. We need to get mainstream someday.
    I also like the blog format. I checked it out a bit, and it looks great so far. Easy way to keep track of photos updates. Wink

    The link is working this time. Smile It will be nice what can be done with a blog format. Definitely a lot easier for photo updating.

    Would the blog be used to archive old photo updates? Such as the Sky Ride Station, etc? Or would it be better off to keep the space for future updates, since there is a usage limit?

    It's going to be only current and future updates that haven't been posted.
