I get updates on my friend's updates in my email inbox. I never saw an update from NYFalls about facebook page down for repairs? Why have a facebook page? The main website at NYFalls looks exactly like facebook anyways !

It does. Unfortunately Facebook gets all the traffic for social interactivity on the internet these days. As much as it burns website providers to have to post their content on facebook and let facebook rake in billions on advertising, they have no choice. Update on our main site. I started working on a new niagara falls page with new photos, and also we have a lighter more modern design coming.

Matt,

How is that new design coming?

It doesn't seem that long ago that you released the current one.

Hey there. Work has been very busy and I rarely have any free time. When I do, I don't feel like working much on website stuff.
I'm thinking I may convert the site as-is, and whatever is broken, will remain so. I need to convert it to get the security up to date and site to become stable. If I can't do that by february, I may have to shut it down.

Too bad, I, for one, would be sad to see NY Falls go dark.

Matt, are you talking just the forum or the whole site? It may be cool (if you're able) to leave the non-forum parts of the website as is. It would be an invaluable reference for future waterfall hunters!

I did move the website to a more stable, faster sever. That doesn't mean i can just leave it though - every indie webstie on the net is under constant attack. NYFalls gets thousands of attack attempts a day. I still have to maintain it even if i don't update it. The website costs me $400 out of pocket a year to run, plus countless nights and weekend keeping it stable and secure. Since everyone just runs ad blockers now, I make like $10/month on ads. Not even worth it.
