The site will be down starting June 1st and lasting throughout the weekend to bring you the shiny new Foundmyself version something-or-other (it's new anyway).
What to expect when you're expecting a new FM:
In general I've tried to make the transition pretty seamless, but there will be some significant changes. Here are a few things to expect:
- Reach websites will continue to work with no downtime during the main site update
- Your gallery link will change from foundmyself.com/gallery/username to simply foundmyself.com/username
- Old links to your art and important pages will automatically point to the new ones if they're different
- Old incompatible gallery styles (e.g. custom styles) won't transfer over - i.e. everyone will have the same gallery style (This does not apply to Reach)
- A new custom gallery editor will be coming so you can spice up your new gallery
- The Honor System, the ability to sell art free, and all the stuff that makes FM FM will of course still be there
- Comments, votes, watched artists, posts, favorites and private messages will all be transferred over
If I think of more I'll update the list but that should at least give you a good heads-up.
