Preparing for ST 2.0 Launch - Part 1Submitted by Admin on Sun, 02/26/2017 - 11:33am
Good news! We're getting closer to launching the new StepTalk site. We've been busy working on the new mobile-friendly theme and building out the basic functionality. We're hoping to be ready to launch with basic functionality in early Spring. After our initial launch, we'll be incrementally adding new functionality as well.
We're doing our best to ensure that we migrate as much of our data to the new site as possible. There are, however, a few things that we either can't migrate or have decided that the effort to migrate will be too great to complete in time. So far we've identified a couple of items that will affect you.
1. Private Messages - We will be migrating many of your private messages. However, our migration process won't allow the migration of messages that were either sent by or sent to currently blocked users. This means that once we are finished migrating your data you may be missing some of your private messages. We encourage you to take this time to review any private messages you have that you may want to backup yourself. After the migration we will not be able to restore any messages that were lost during migration.
2. Friends List - We will be implementing a new Friends List system on ST 2.0. We've decided that the effort to migrate your current friends list from the old system into the new would be more effort than we can afford in order to launch this Spring. Please make a note of your current list of friends. Once we launch, you'll have the opportunity to rebuild your friends list.
As many of you know, this launch has been a long time coming. We've been "working" on this for years now. We're getting excited to finally be this close to launching the new site. As the launch time gets closer I'll be posting updates here. Wish us luck!
