    Default Update: A New Futanari Palace

    Hello, Futanari Palace. Two weeks ago I posted "A New Futanari Palace" and now it is time for an update.

    ---------

    First, an expression of gratitude towards the FP community and the positive community response to the decision to create a new website for Futanari Palace. We have expanded our technical staff team from volunteers (and returning admins) and have begun identifying what our next steps will be. Many of you have generously opted to donate (https://www.patreon.com/FutanariPalace) to the expenses of a new website and to the ongoing costs of keeping Futanari Palace open and functional. Others have raised good questions and have made good points in response to the initial post.

    I and the administrative/technical team will do our best to provide you with updates and information.

    ---------

    Currently, we are working on determining what content and features to copy/import over to the new website. The ideal situation is all of FP's content exists as data that can be copied over to the new website and most features will continue to function in the new environment. However, the process of identifying features/content and the second process of actually copying it over, and the third process of making it work on the new website are each labor-hour intensive things that ask a lot of our volunteer technical team. Old PHP scripts and plugins may be copied, but making them work in a new syntax or new environment is grueling and repetitive work.

    The good news is, we have spun up a test site using MyBB and have set about learning the new system. If you have experience with myBB and wish to volunteer, please let me know.

    My goal is to preserve as much content as possible and give you the same FP as it currently stands, including user profiles and all your history/medals, and including forums, subforums, threads, posts, and uploads. We are researching what can and what cannot be copied over and will update you once we know. There is not an ETA for this information.

    --------

    Responses to questions raised in the previous thread:

    1. We cannot put a bigger notice up because the notice feature is half-broken.
    2. What will most likely happen to the "old" FP once the "new" FP is operational is it will be read-only locked and moved to a different URL.
    3. Forum updates and backups will be made more frequently.
    4. Futanari Palace will not have an official discord server. Futanari Palace is a forum community and splitting the community is not necessary.
    5. Improved tools, new tools, and new features are being explored, and some old systems that don't work well in the first place may be replaced.
    6. It is possible that no content can be ported over. The request for you to save what you like is to prepare for worst-case scenarios.
    7. There will not be a time-frame on this work. It is based on volunteer hours, uncertain technical feasibility, and the sustainability of donations.

    --------

    Best regards,

    Echoen

    I like this news and can't wait to be able to drag and drop an entire folder worth of porn onto the upload screen instead of one image at a time
    I have a thousand aliases on the web and none of them are related.
    You might know me in a dozen different ways and not even know it.

    Ah. Well, since there still seems to be a lot of people who still don't know about any of this based on what I'm seeing in random threads, how about changing the language so instead of the straight low-key "A New Futanari Palace" it says something like "Attention: Urgent: Please Click This Right Now To Learn About The HUGE Changes coming to the FP!"

    Also, what about sending out a mass admin note to all users that they will definitely see? Is that even a thing the admins/owners can do here?

    I agree there are lots who don't know about it and we can spread awareness. I am very thankful for the current update. Thanks for the hard work to the volunteers. I hope you have an important time. And hope you can save some of the stuff here. If not we can work around it.

    FP for the win. ^_^

    They had a crisis of their own about a year and a half ago. The guy that runs it had health issues and he allowed the Sad Panda end of the site to die temporarily. Overwhelming user support is the only reason it came back. I haven't kept track of them lately, but the last I heard the guy still wanted out. I do not know how feasible this would be.
