Great News!


I also second this


May I please make the suggestion of keeping SimplePortal.
We, from the early days of SMFNew, all used the advantage of SimplePortal.
Seeing that you have taking that option away from the free hosted personaly
gets to me.


I still love that updates though and keep them coming please.

OK, so, I'm really interested in the big picture with SMFnew over the last couple years. It seemed as though it was getting slower and slower and slower, then there were prolonged outages, brief periods of performing beautifully followed by bad performance again, then everything was just gone period, now it's back and running beautifully, new ownership.... Who are you? What happened to Matt? Is the spam what was slowing everything down? LOL I'm sorry to pry but I am curious about as much as you're willing to share. :)

I have been following SMFNew for many years now and finally had a chance to take over. I run many forum hosts almost 10 years now using all types of forum hosting software.

The key issues with SMFNew were
Spam - thousands of spam posts/thousand of logins/registrations daily really made the site slow.
Database structure not optimal.
Site/database queries not optimized. - Caching
Content optimization CDN


Still there are more things I want to do just when I have time to code them all.

You're not Google or somebody else trying to buy everything up and achieve ultimate worldwide forum domination and control over information, are you? ;)

One day.... I do a lot of things. Mainly a software developer. But own a couple software as service companies. I just bought another company this week moving them in this weekend into our offices so long days for me.

OK, not as terrifying as I might have thought. LOL But still fascinating. Thanks for the info. Hopefully your fresh outlook on the situation here will help in the long run. Thanks for what you've done already! It's great to see everything back up and running well.

Thanks, Alex, for all the stuff you've done for SMFNew throughout the years. I know I've thanked you before, but I'll thank you again. If it weren't for you, SMFNew wouldn't have existed as long as it has. :)
