Any updates on when the changes will launch?


Possibly next week.

Don't suppose there's any chance we'll be able to stream the iriffs now, is there?

According to TorgosPizza that may be a possibility as long as the files are .MP3 or .MP4

Will any of these changes affect the forum? 

No, as the forum is on a separate system and server entirely.

Could we get an update? It's been a while. Maybe after the new site is live?

I think that's fair. I'll have to investigate the current status of this forum software to see if there are some good improvements, and if the upgrade path is solid.

Don't suppose there's any chance we'll be able to stream the iriffs now, is there?

I think there is a good chance of that.

Any updates on when the changes will launch?

Right now we're targeting tomorrow or Monday, but I'm still in the last stages of testing, so if we find a show-stopping bug that could change.

I just want to let you know the new site looks fantastic!  I can't wait to see the finished iRiffs page!  Just a heads up while I'm here, my samples uploaded to rifftrax stopped playing on the old site.  Not sure if you were aware.  I'm sure that'll be fixed when the new page goes up; just that youtube has been a pain in the arse with copyright issues.

I notice on the front page the top riffs of all time are listed.  I think you should go back to the "top sellers this week" style.  Top riffs of all time will probably end up being static and people will come back to the front page and not see much change there and may be disinterested.

Looking at the rest of the site, I think we're going to see iRiffs categorized in a whole different way; one that enables us to promote ourselves better than we have in the past.  I'm eager to see what's coming.

Just checking my library section and saw we can stream DVDs we bought from the site now!  That's freaking sweet!  (Too bad most of mine were from an Overstock.com sale where I got them all as a bundle for dirt cheap!)

thank gordddd you guys are fixing the system that tells you how much you are getting... I would like to know so I can get  on top of it.

BTw: I would like to note that the reason I haven't  turned in my w9... is that I would just be getting a free ink cartridge but as soon as my money is apropriately high enough to0 justify the cost I will be sending it in along with my username.
i'll survive... even if it kills me... lol

Nice look to the Rifftrax.com website.  Things are much easier for the newer viewers.....and since that was one of your goals, well done.

I did wonder about the expiration date on the credit card only being 3 digits.  Since the universe barely survived the Y2K horror zone, your site will crash the universe in only 86 more years.

THE HORROR :scared:

I am noticing that the iRiffs I have already purchased don't show up in my Library anymore.

I think it's because all the iRiff stuff is totally inaccessible right now.  They'll probably return once the iRiff section is back up and running.

That's what I'm thinking too. But I'd like to get some confirmation on that

I am looking forward to the improvements to the iRiff section.  Any estimates on when that will be up and running?
