So it’s been just over 12 months since I took over ownership of Aussie Pythons and Snakes and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the patience, feedback, advice and support through the transition period with its up and downs. All site stability issues that I could see at the time are now addressed, we have implemented some new features and the general "attitude" seems a bit more relaxed which I am taking as a positive. Realistically we are still fighting the Facebook scourge as well as the previous “APS persona” but with membership still slowly rising and some decent discussions being held, I feel that it’s been a bit of a win for everyone and that APS is slowly coming back.. For anyone interested, here are some numbers with the changes. And some more exciting news, after looking at it on and off for a very long time, I I have finally found a way to resurrect all the lost threads from over the years. It’s going to be a long process to fix it, but I’ll spend as much time as I can in getting it done sooner rather than later.
