  1. Talking with the server tech, it seems that we are leaking memory... which is really strange as this has never been an issue before. However part of this issue could be because the db is growing, although slowly it is... and every bit puts more stress on the server. Part of that issue is that this system isn't really built for a some 20 year old website and it's 15gb of mysql data. The good thing is the new system will be. Tonight we will be working to optomize the the db, with hopes that it helps while I continue to build out the new system. If you all would like to get a general idea of what the new system will be loosely based off of. Your welcome to check out the social network I created. www.frdmo.com Also... it seems that we have lost some user profile images... not sure why. But it does not appear that we can't get them back. You will need to reload them.
  2. After a great meeting with @Padre J Roulston last night. I wanted to give you an idea as to what the future holds for HelpToGo.com. With the recent launch of my social network platform over at www.frdmo.com I will be essentially taking parts of this network and pushing it to Help v3. After looking at the Help archives we realized that my current social platform is not much different. Now... you will sit there and say this is a social network so how will it work with Help? There are features that I have disabled at the moment that I am rewriting that will better fit what Help needs. The goal is to allow our members to be both social, and have the options to post into a category. So that being said... I can tell you some VERY VERY important features that will be launched with it. 1. Anom posting option. When you make a post you will have the option to choose where you want it to be a social post or a category post. If Category then you select the category, and then if you want it to post publicly under your name, and or anom. This also means that it will not post on your profile either if posted as anom. 2. Although I have the chat feature in there now. It is not built for a group chat. So we will be adding that feature so that everyone who has an account will be automatically added to the group chat. This will allow for much easier and more responsive member engagement. (specailly since we are working on the mobile app), that essentially functions like FB messenger. 3. The filter options will of course be completely different. 4. The welcome page will allow for quick anom posting and an idea of what is being posted. However to see what we truly have to offer we need to give them a reason to engage. 5. Yes I will be exporting this entire 12gb post db and importing it into the new system. 6. There will not be groups or pages, and of course some other features will be reworked... The main goal is to make everything easier for you all, and to help generate traffic back to the site. All in all I believe this is a great step forward, and I am hoping to honestly have this done by the end of the year if not soon, but I will not make any promises.
  3. Due to an ever increasing workload, and launching my own company... dubbed FREEDOM Online, as well as personal health issues with myself and family... it is only fitting that I step away for the next several months until the dust settles and I get things figured out. What does this mean for HelpToGo? Honestly not a damn thing. Unlike last time when I left the company that owns HelpToGo. I am not leaving, HelpToGo is mine... end of story. I own everything minus the domain. This means that if one of the admins reaches out to me and they need something I will be here for them. But at this time the site is under complete control of @Padre J Roulston and the rest of the admins. Over the past several weeks @Padre J Roulston and I have been discussing the future of HelpToGo, and we have some great ideas on how to increase the traffic while bring the site back to it's "almost" original form. When the time comes (and should be in the next few weeks) @Padre J Roulston will let you all know what is going on as I am currently in the process of launching something else that the new help site will for the most part be built off of. I can tell you as Padre has been helping me beta test this new site... that we feel confident with some slight changes that this new site will allow the entire community to become extremely active with each other, and return HelpToGo to it's form glory. You guys have built an amazing community here... and I am doing my very best to bring life back to it, and I hope to be able to put it on that path in just a few months. @Padre J Roulston @Nix @BuckingFastard(JN) @Gone. In my absence... I leave HelpToGo in your more than capable hands. If anyone needs anything from me. You are welcome to email me at ryan@valkyriecreative.com, hit me up on facebook. Otherwise I will see you all in a few months. (If not sooner...lol kind of depends on a few things) God Bless you all.
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong ladies... but when a man watches porn it makes the women feel that they are not doing their part in the relationship... really no different than a women using a toy after a couples adult time...
  5. @Nix reach out to me on FB so we can chat about this much easier.
  6. @flowerchild thank you for being brave enough to reach out to us. Discussing issues like this are never easy. That being said to answer your question in my personal opinion I would be more concerned about making sure you are comfortable with what we are doing than how you look. Sex has nothing to do with how someone looks in my opinion either... it's all about what you do, and how you do it... So personally I got for Personality > Eyes > Smile > Other things > Then Figure Let's not forget... light switches are wonderful things for insecurity
  7. I am looking for some developers to volunteer their time to help me build out the new HelpToGo.com. I have the design done, but I am not a backend developer. I am looking for someone who can get this done fairly quickly and for free. There is no funding for the site so I can not pay you. If interested please email me ryan@helptogo.com Please provide portfolio and knowledge.
  8. Sherlock I heard something about you being a developer is that correct?
  9. Since the websites revamp traffic has not been all that great, in reality we should be getting 50-100 members a day with lots of topics to post. There are a few reason why we are not. Facebook itself is a problem. Everyone can talk to everyone there right? But they can't do without people knowing who they are. Current sites layout - when we purchased help.com we had to get a quick solution and this was it. Recently I've updated everything and it's much better however... the problem still is not everyone likes the site. Content... yes the global chat feature is awesome, but in reality it's not that great, we nee people posting content and people being active. Solutions.... @Padre J Roulston @BuckingFastard(JN) have seen 1 of the two new designs I have planned for it, needless to say it brings us back to the ORIGINAL layout design of Help.com. With a modern look, code and colors, with some special features and such like global chat box etc etc. This is going to take several months and money that I do not have right now. Because their is next to no traffic, there are is no funding to this site anymore, I pay for everything myself, the software updates, server cost etc etc... so money is tight for this. Server cost will be covered as I'm purchasing a extremely large server for my social network that my private investor is working on and has agreed to let me host HelpToGo.com over there. I've been building a social network for a specific industry. Both @Padre J Roulston and @BuckingFastard(JN) have seen this. Well Padre has not seen the latest changes, however bucking is an employee of the network, or well will be officially shortly once we launch into beta. The reason I'm telling you this is I've been debating turning H2G into it's own private social network. With nearly 75% of FB's features. There are some things i can't do like phone calls, payments, shit like that... but I have all the important basics down. Chat, Friends, Wall post, tagging etc etc. This particular network is geared towards a certain industry. If I went this route (and I will probably install a demo in the next few weeks when a few other modules are running) so you guys can test it out and let me know your thoughts. Let me know your thoughts...
  10. I agree with @BuckingFastard(JN)
  11. It was suppose to be about love and it's question... I have a hard time not making examples out of what I was saying... but it was suppose to be a question... so answer away!
  12. I would look into Austin, Texas, Florida, anyplace without state tax usually has lower living cost, but that also means lower wages as well... I've lived in several states growing up, and honestly the best places I have found where Austin, TX, and now Boca Raton Florida.
  13. I struggle from both tbh... but I keep myself overworked and on the brink of burning out in order to prevent me from slipping into either. The biggest and scariest thing is getting help. I know several people who have done a complete 180, it may take several types of different meds as well before the Dr's find the one that works for you. That being said though Nix, you've got several of our FB's, you know where we are, who we are.. you can always reach out to us if you need to chat. <3 keep your chin up kido!
