Hi all!

Winter is coming (well it's already here for some of us) and it's that time of year when I'm stuck inside with far too much time on my hands.

I'm actively working on the site code again and currently developing a new version of the site that is super fast and stripped of all the "bloat" that was included on the current version. I'm not happy with the performance of the current site and for those on a slower connection it does take way too long to load (especially on mobile).

I'll be looking at adding new features to the site such as some gaming (i.e. card games), member image galleries, and additional improvements to the Graphics Auctions to name a few.

If you have any suggestions please post on the suggestions forum.

Please note our annual account purge will happen at the end of this December. Accounts not used in over 2 years will be removed and accounts with inactive images will have those purged if the account hasn't been a paying membership in over 2 years.

I will also be looking at an issue with non-paying members who have more Nicknames in their account than their allocated space (unlike icons these aren't deactivated when your paid membership expires) and will probably add a system to deactivate Nicknames like we do images or force these users to pick which names they wish to keep.

Thank you all for your continued support of the site! While we have less usage than we have in the past we are in great shape with the changes made earlier this year and we don't have to add any crappy advertising!

Hi all!

Development is going well and you can now help test and check out the new site code at https://www.nhb-chat.com

Again, a lot of the "bloat" has been stripped out and the site should feel super fast compared to our current version. A few options like choosing site menu versions, spell check etc. have been removed as they were part of the problem (sorry to those with poor spelling Tongue ) but the negatives should be minor compared to the increased speed and new features being added.

Poke around and let us know what you think via the suggestions forum.

Please note this is a first version and I still have a lot of bug fixes such as the site skins and color schemes in the chat system to fix. Be sure to use the Site Default site skin (under Account Settings) while testing as that is the one I use and then I'll update the other skins once finished.

Please note that the site above is for testing only and you will be booted from the site if I'm uploading the latest code without a warning. Tongue

I'm still going through my list of bug fixes so please hold off sending me any bug reports.

As I work on this during nights and weekends it's going to be another couple of weeks until this is ready for final testing. Smile

The new Galleries feature is in place and if you're an icon maker we would love to get your feedback and help us test this feature. Smile

I have updated the domain from test.the-pork.com to https://www.nhb-chat.com to allow for testing of the secure payment screens and features that require access to your camera (some browsers now require connections are secure).

The "Take a Picture" feature has been updated to 200x150 size and now supports iOS devices. Now you can take a picture using your iPad or iPhone!

Today I updated the latest code over at the testing site at https://www.nhb-chat.com

If you have been using this site (thank you!) you may need to press Ctrl and F5 to force a refresh of all your cache files or go into your browser settings and delete all temporary internet files.

If you currently use classic.the-pork.com please be aware that version of the site will be discontinued when we go live with the new site code (early 2018). Today's code update has added some code to automatically downgrade features (such as no images in chat picture drop down menus, forces classic buttons in chat rooms, doesn't allow you to enter the streaming chat, forces the "classic" side menu site version etc.) that do not work in Internet Explorer 9 and below.

If you are a classic.the-pork.com user please try the testing site. I know there are still a few using very old computers with very old browsers but if you don't let us know any issues you have then it will take time later to fix (if we can) and you may no longer be able to use the site when we go live. We will not be supporting anything less than Internet Explorer 8 (although the site might still be functional) or very old versions of other browsers.

To be sure you are getting the best experience please upgrade to any modern browser version.

This evening the testing site was updated.

Coins are now being earned for every member and accounts have been updated to calculate from the start of this year (1/1/2018).

You do not have to use the new site to earn coins.

There is no way to spend them yet but this was added to reward members currently using the site so you can start earning while we continue development of other features.

For more information head over to your Coin account.
