Ok, the new site is LIVE! And t-shirts preorders have begun!
« on: October 29, 2009, 12:12:01 PM »
After the longest couple of days in history, it's all finished and ready to go.  The new site is online, the Flat Earth Wiki is up, the Society is officially accepting new members and the long-awaited t-shirts are becoming a reality.  And my ongoing pet project, the Flat Earth Society Library, is nicely stocked!



I'll be sending out our press release tomorrow morning.

I think we all owe Daniel an apology for doubting him.

Someone else can apologise for me.

The new site is online

Old.

That link seems to go to a post that doesn't exist.  Odd.

The image of the black t-shirt isn't loading. Pleas fix it as I may consider buying one.

Thank you for all your hard work.  It's most appreciated.
I don't know what you're implying, but you're probably wrong.

That was weird.  That jpg got corrupted somehow.  It should be working now, though.

To become a friend, I make the paypal donation, and send a postcard, is that right?
I spent all of 5 minutes learning about bloody gods just before the exam and its bloody qeistions on fox hunting and abortions.

I just put the instructions in the PayPal form.  Hmmm......I hope that suffices.

Can you PM me with the error you're getting?  And this goes for anyone else having problems.  It's a new setup, obviously, so little glitches may pop up and I'd like to resolve them ASAP.

Yes.  It's in the description but I'll try to make it more clear.  I can see how someone could overlook it.  It's easy to skip over.

I'm not getting an error message, it is just bringing me to the paypal homepage instead of the page to actually purchase the shirt.

It seems pretty obvious, but I'm going to ask so I don't send it to you unnecessarily. If we become a friend, do we still send you the postcard?

Thanks for pointing out the problem.  It's resolved now.  The content management system I'm using for the main website is very finicky about HTML code being embedded in the pages.  It had kindly cleaned up my HTML by removing important Paypal referral information.

Also, Mrs. Peach, you were the first person to become a Friend of the Flat Earth Society.  I urge you to not act hastily and get a tattoo to commemorate the occasion.  Not until you've had a day or two to think it over, at least.  And, yes, I also got your request in the Paypal transaction.  So that part is definitely working too, which is nice.

Even if it isn't necessary, I think that Daniel would still appreciate a postcard.

You don't need to.. but I like getting postcards :)  I'm planning to put up a Flat Earth map and have all of the postcards around it with coloured strings leading to where the card came from.  Sort of like you see on television cop shows when they're tracking a serial killer, but less menacing.

I'll send one at some point, probably within the next month or so. I'm totally framing the certificate and what not. Maybe I'll get a little display case for the coin.

The certificates are pretty slick.  I they're laser-printed onto proper certificate stock, so it's not just a blurry inkjet printout.  I'm quite proud of the pewter medallions also.  Mostly because I made them myself :)

My favourite part of the new site is the title on the homepage that says "Welcome to the Frontpage".

Fixed now.  That setting was hidden away in the admin system so that no one would even find it if they weren't specifically looking for it.. which is why I never noticed.  Anyway, thanks again for bug-finding.
