I am not sure if that one is still updated anymore. BuckeyeDude (Buckeye on IRC) would know, though

As far as I know that is soon to be gone. We're waiting on will to move all of that over to the codeplex, to keep everything in one central location. That was actually the reason for the name on codeplex, Spencer originally named it Wabbitsuite but it was changed to keep consistent with Will's stuff.

RevSoft is back up now...nothing has changed website/forum wise as of yet, but I'll role out updates throughout the summer. Starting with a new website layout hopefully this month. All things wabbit related should now be able to be downloaded from the forum if you couldnt find it in any of the other sources.

edit: As you can see it coming back took by surprise and I've been busy with school this past month and didnt notice that you guys had posted that it was up already ha.

But I like the current layout D:

Oh well still nice to see it back and future updates :)

Also are you planning to keep it hosted where it currently is? I fear if KevinJB dissapears again that it might go down again later if he forgets to pay the bill.

On MaxCoderz, every month Kv83 kept forgetting and the site was always suspended for a week or two x.x

Yea, this is what I was wondering as well. Has he (KevinJB) still not spoken with anyone since Revsoft went back online?

Well the layout isnt going to change all that much...in fact Spencer thought it was almost exactly the same, what I've added now doesnt make it look all that similar but it is pretty close. I basically combined our original site and our latest together to kinda remember the past, as well as cleaned up some links. I'm trying to make it more user friendly for us to get news out as well as users to find out about our projects with out having to weed through useless stuff.

I sent a pm to kevin about the hosting...we are working on it so it wont happen again. Thanks Brandon on the offer but I think we're ok for now. I dont think we plan on letting RS go down like that again. We want to stay up as long as we can and as long as we are providing a service to the community.

Aaaah nice ^^

Glad to see RS will continue going strong. Hopefully a few projects updates will also help the forums.

Btw for the redesign, are you going a bit into some sort of forum-site hybrid like Omnimaga and the old UTI CMS? Or will the site continue to be separate from the forums like the original MaxCoderz website?

Yea, you could make the news more accessible like it is here. I do actually check the front page at revsoft, but I'm sure most people don't. Anyways, I can't wait to see the new format you come up with! ^^.

The plan is to integrate the two. Similar to what you guys have here as well as UTIs setup. I dont see the point in keeping the news separate like we currently have, plus it makes it easier for us to post news only in one place instead of two.

Cool! Initially I feared it may not look professional because on Invisionfree there were no download system but finally it seemed to do the job pretty well plus now we no longer use the limited Invisionfree, plus as you said it makes it much easier for news posting. Plus only one account is needed to post comments on news and on the forums

That's good! I think that'll definitely be an improvement. It should give Revsoft a bit nicer, newer look as well! =D

Sorry on RS not being updated...I'm currently without a job and money, as well as trying to finish up this iPhone project for school. However I still dont have access to the hosting so I cant upload anything anyhow. I've sent a message to Kevin, but just as a heads up I probably wont able to bring out the new layout until the end of July. I should be more active as well around that time because I will finally be done with school and this iPhone project. Just thought I would keep you guys posted.

I'll be done completely, I'll have my bachelors in Computer Science. I've been kicking around a project idea for a while now...but I really dont want to start something new. I'll probably finish one of my older projects.

Glad to hear ^^. More free time is always good. We need breaks sometimes. :) Finishing Cobra would be cool. Wasn't this from way back in the Drubu Productions days? (back when MaxCoderz still used Ikonboard CGI forum system)
