We want to tell you that MLKSHK will not be closing! And not only are we not closing but we are going to be doing some good stuff in the coming months. We appreciated all the nice things you tweeted and mailed to us, and we realized just how special this site was to so many of you. To turn it off would be a big loss. It’s a pretty special place.
We made list of the three most important things that need to get done in the short-term. They are:
- Fix the image counts. They are not the least bit accurate.
- Fix the speed. There is a lot of stuff we haven’t done in the past 3 years that we are going to do. Mainly some database work to root out some of the slowness, but also upgrade some pretty old services that have been chugging along for four years.
- The third thing won’t make much sense if you don’t understand how things are organized on the back-end, but it’s a big overhaul of how files are received and moved into the CDN. I wanted to mention it just so later I can point to this post and say, “we did that other thing I was telling you about before and now we are very happy.”
Also, Amber is designing t-shirts! Click the image to go vote for your favorite.
And, she already sent an order for stickers to the printer. These are going to be nice, die-cut, vinyl stickers and she ordered a hell of a lot of them.
So that’s it. A short post. Thanks for sticking with the site and not turning off your subscriptions. We’re going to have something to announce around those after the items up above get done.
