Dear valued members and viewers,
-Sites upgrade in effect starting Sat Feb 28, 2015 (est 48 hrs to go live)
UPDATE Weds Mar 4: Site will be LIVE at 1 pm Today
As many may know we went live with our new format and new server on Monday.
Despite exhaustive pre-testing, as always with new roll-outs and especially new configs, unforeseen issues can arise only after going ‘live’. In this case, we made an extremely difficult judgement call to take the sites offline again to address some new issues which only appeared when live. We’re nearly completed resolving this but just to be certain that we can respond to any further issues, we will now go live on Weds latest – Weds being a holiday in Thailand (Makha Bucha Day) – therefore less site traffic and we’ll have 3 tech supports on hand to be able to address issues. The sites will then remain active from Weds forward. Premium advertisers please note we will extend ads for lost time.
Sincerest apologies for the delay and please pardon the unintended inconvenience!
Thank you all so much for your kind patience and understanding
*We are upgrading our sites to a more ‘mobile/tablet friendly’ format. As a result the sites will be offline temporarily while we upload and transfer to the new format. Please pardon this necessary but temporary inconvenience! Once the new format is live you will no longer view this notice, instead you will be automatically directed to the live sites where you can place and view ads as before.
As with any re-launch, despite exhaustive testing by our dev team, once there are thousands of users testing the new sites, we expect some glitches and need for adjustments will be revealed which will be corrected as soon as possible.
This format change was prompted by the need to keep pace with the ever fast-changing tech environment and to provide the vast increase of mobile device users a more device friendly experience (without the need to download yet another unnecessary app;) The new format will also bring advertisers greater results via increased mobile device users.
This is a BETA re-launch and as such we will be adjusting and refining the look/feel/layout and functionality going forward (also new intuitive banner display launch to follow).
Thank you for your kind patience and understanding as we continue to evolve our format and constantly improve our services.
We look forward to welcoming you to the new live sites soon.
