Settling In

Hi everyone!

Now that we're done making system changes and adding features here at the new site, things are stable and running great.

We had some technical glitches and some growing pains (the spambots found the site), but we are now all settled in. If this is your first time on the new site, there are a few things you need to know:

New Usernames
Unfortunately, the old software and it's vulnerability to external attack just aren't up to the task of transferring your old registration to the new format (there's just too much damage to the databases), so you'll need to recreate your username to log into the new site as you were accustomed to.
Calendar Submissions
The old site gave it's last gasp, and many of the calendar events it had stored were sadly lost. This means that we are asking our members and event organizers to resubmit these events wherever they find them missing. We truly apologize for the inconvenience. On the upside, this new site supports repeating events, so there's no need to resubmit every week or month any more! Hopefully, this will make up for the extra work we're asking folks to do...
Upcoming Events
If you hadn't noticed, the site now has an 'Upcoming Events" section at the top of the right column. This feature dynamically lists the next seven events on our local dance calendar, so you don't even have to visit the calendar page to know what's going on in the near future.
Image Galleries
This new feature is available to all registered members of Capital USA Dance. If you would like to share some of your photos with us, we will be happy to host them for the whole membership to see (we'd really love it if you could keep them on the small side, though, big photos slow the site down). If you don't see a gallery category that fits, just post a request in the forum, and we'll see if we can't make one that does!
Newsfeeds
The bottom section of the site now contains links to the latest headlines, blog posts, and conversations about ballroom dancing from various sources on the internet. This handy area can help keep you abreast of events as they happen in the ballroom world. We're always on the lookout for new news sources, so if you find some, let us know.
