Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

1. Are you on-board with what we may have to do?

Yep!

2. How extensively do you use PMs through our forums?

Not very often. Maybe once every few months and it's usually other people initiating the conversation.

3. Who's interested in Blogging for EH-Net?

I'd be interested in having the capability, but I honestly wouldn't be blogging all that much.

4. Who's willing to help test?

If there's a task list to knock out that I could load up when possible during working hours or late at night, sure! I can't commit to anything scheduled though, work's pretty hectic.

5. Who's willing to possibily help moderate the forums?

While I would love the opportunity to just delete spam threads as I see them, I don't know much time I'd be able to commit to other moderator duties (see above).

6. Anyone willing to lend a hand who has expertise in PHP, MySQL, design?

If I knew PHP/MySQL, definitely...but I don't :(

7. Should we implement OpenID, login with Twitter?

I'd support this.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

1: Aye Aye. I'm on board
2: PM has it's moments. There have been several members that I have conversed that way with. It's a nice feature, but as long as we have away to contact off thread it's not a big loss. Growing pains right?
3: How often do we need to blog? I'd be interested. Have some projects I want to work on, and could share the skill growth with.
4: Usability testing? I've done that. Pinched for time, but I'll do what I can.
5: besides hurt, maim, kill spam what is involved?
6: I would if my skills were more than hey look I set up word press.
7: *shudder*. I like the thought of SSO and maybe 2FA, but linking accounts... *shudder*

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

1. Are you on-board with what we may have to do?
Very much so Don!  This is a great place and change is good!

2. How extensively do you use PMs through our forums?
I use it pretty often, it is a good way to take things off to the side.  It is also a good way to the job boards.

3. who's interested in Blogging for EH-Net?
I currently try to maintain my own, but I wouldn't mind doing some double duty.

4. Who's willing to help test?
I could lend a hand.

5. Who's willing to possibly help moderate the forums?
I could assist with this as well.

6. Anyone willing to lend a hand who has expertise in PHP, MySQL, design?
My skills here are not so good.

7. Should we implement OpenID, login with Twitter?
I'd prefer to keep my logins separate.  But it isn't a deal breaker.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

I can't see the first page of this thread, so i'll copy the others...

1. Are you on-board with what we may have to do?
No idea, whats that?

2. How extensively do you use PMs through our forums?
Not very often. Maybe once every few months and it's usually other people initiating the conversation. -Same as OP.

3. Who's interested in Blogging for EH-Net?
I'd be interested.

4. Who's willing to help test?
If there's a task list i'd be in.

5. Who's willing to possibly help moderate the forums?
I've modded before, but I don't see much needing to be done except removing spam. I'd be interested.

6. Anyone willing to lend a hand who has expertise in PHP, MySQL, design?
If I knew PHP/MySQL, definitely...but I don't - same as OP.

7. Should we implement OpenID, login with Twitter?
I dont use either of these services, and dont plan to. Having the option would be nice for any who use it, but not as a requirement.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

I'm ok with making changes.

I don't use PM very much.

Unfortunately, right now I'm pretty busy so I don't have time to help test the site.

I don't use OpenID or Twitter.  As long as they aren't required, I'm fine.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

I've narrowed it down to one CMS and 3 possible forum apps. I'm running each on a dedicated dev server for testing. I'm also doing test conversions, feature comparisons, integration review, etc.

I'll get in touch with each of you that either replied to this thread or contacted me offline to send you the dev URL for final testing and feedback.

So I'd like to have this done before the end of the month.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

1) Yeah.

2) I haven't checked EHNet in a long time, so not used PM too.But I am now planning on once again becoming a regular contributor of the forum and in my active days I usually use PMs once or twice a week.

3) Will blog for sure.

4) I am.

5) I am. I always report the spam messages or other offensive stuff I see on EHNet and having a moderator with a different timezone than yours (India) will always help EHNet.

6) I don't have an excellent command over PHP but I can certainly help with some little scripts.

7) Sure. I don't generally use my social media accounts with other websites but it'll be good feature for those who do.

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

OK... quick update.

As you can tell, because tomorrow is the first of the month, we're not going to make our end-of-month self-imposed deadline. But that's OK. Some articles are running behind as well as getting the giveaway for May, but I'm totally focused on this conversion process. This is going to be the backbone of the site for years to come, so putting some of the regular monthly items on hold for a little bit is worth it for the long-term vision.

That being said, I'm close to having a working demo for those who have been giving thoughts in this thread and offline.

Hang in there,

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

Hey All,

As the participants of this thread should now know, I have the live dev site up for testing the new version of EH-Net. If you didn't get my email, let me know with a PM or email me directly at don ( at ) ethical hacker . net.

It's pretty darned close to what the real thing will look and act like (unless you guys hate what I've done), so hammer away and let me know offline what you think. I thought about going crazy with the design, but then decided to not only go with an even cleaner, minimalist look but also keep our identity as a great destination for professional “white” hats. Thus the design that you’ll see.

If all goes well, I'd like to start porting it over for real sooner rather than later. My goal is to have the new site live before June 1. So as an FYI for anyone else who might read this, I will have to put EH-Net entirely in maintenance mode for hopefully no longer than a couple days. With Monday being a holiday here in the states, this weekend would be the best time to do it. I'll try my best to keep it live by putting it in a read-only state, but we'll see how it goes.

I'm confident we won't lose much, as the test site has a copy of all articles, users and forum threads. The rest of the details of the new site are included in the PM I sent everyone. If you have more specific questions, let me know offline if its sensitive or here if you think its appropriate for everyone's general knowledge.

What a long, tortuous ordeal in evaluating and testing everything. This has taken months as I made the conscious decision to basically start from scratch. It’s a good thing, as it forced us to grow up into a full-fledged publishing operation instead of just a personal project that took off. Maybe it’s time to get an intern!?!?!  :o

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

So far so good. No one has reported anything broken. There was an item that had some light shined on it. I'm looking at it but it's not a show stopper.

As for the functionality and design, no one has commented negatively. I'll take it!  ;D

For those who have taken a look and created test accounts, tried out the commenting features, etc., keep it up. For those who haven't had a chance, please give it a shot if you can.

If any of you notice something strange that didn't happen while first testing the new site, there may be a logical reason for it. We are having the new site pen tested. So don't freak, but still report anything out of the ordinary.

We're close... I can taste it.  :P

Re: Change is Coming to EH-Net!!

With the current forum, you can have your login name be different than your display name. It looks like the display name was brought over as the login name in the new forums. It's not a big deal, but I was wondering why my normal credentials didn't work for a second. Just FYI. Otherwise, so far, so good.
