Like I was saying....

Upgrade and Pub

Well, yesterday was the day that Invision Power Board came out with it’s latest final version. There had been a few beta releases of 1.2, and then two Release Candidates, but the FINAL version is out now, so I’m backing up my forums before doing the upgrade. It’d totally stink to lose everything in the upgrade, but I’ve never had any problems before, so it’s just a precautionary measure.

After the upgrade I’ll try to find a new skin for it, or possibly just get one made for it. That might cost a little, but if it creates a custom look/feel then it could be worth it. I think that there is untapped potential for MissSportsTalk.com, but we’ll have to wait and see. It has grown mainly on word of mouth over the last year, but just tonight I sent out a press release to over 30 newspapers in Mississippi. That might sound a little hokey, but it was free to do, and who knows, it might actually make it into a paper somewhere. That would translate into some publicity and action, hopefully.

But all the more reason to get the new skin in place.

If you want to read the Press Release, just view the extended entry. I wrote it, then had a few friends comb over it to help clarify it. Tell me what you think.

High School Sports Fans In Mississippi Now Have A Place To Gather On The Net

Amory, MS, August 8, 2003 – College sports fans have long had opportunities to meet together online to celebrate or bemoan the success and failure of their favorite teams. Mississippi Sports Talk (www.MissSportsTalk.com) is a new online community that focuses on high school athletics within Mississippi. Members of the community are able to interact on topics related to their favorite high school sports, teams, and players

Site founder Blake Thompson saw a need for high school sports fans to be given that privilege. “I know that there is a lot of passion for high school sports here in Mississippi, but there really wasn’t a top quality online community for people to get together and express it,” said Thompson.

With over 500 members and nearly 10,000 posts in just over a year of existence, MissSportsTalk.com has become the quality online community that Thompson had hoped it would become. “We’ve been very encouraged by the growth of the community so far, created primarily by word of mouth. But I believe we’ve barely scratched the surface of the growth potential”

Membership to the site is free, and there are many other topics besides high school sports. “We have many people who love to post about the SEC and we all enjoy spouting off in the “Trash Talk” forum from time to time.” Thompson points out that there is also a “Coaches Only” forum designed exclusively for high school coaches to be able to discuss issues out of the public eye.

“Our goal is to become a complete community where all are welcomed to share their enthusiasm for Mississippi high school sports.” Visit www.MissSportsTalk.com to join the discussions.

  2. will you please erase all my polls please, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

  3. My parents just got $96.00 taken from MWIconnections.com for free movies,grocies,and stuff like that. We contacted the company at 1-800-568-2386 and talk to the people about refunding there money and they said that they will give back the money in the next few days. Also I'm in the United States Marines Corps and I got an e-mail from my Command about something you should all be aware of. When you go to a Hotel and you use a credit card they download your information to the key card you use for you room. Such as name, address, phone number, credit card info like exp. date and your card number. Where I'm getting at with this is when you turn your key cards back in they keep your card and take key card back home and they upload your information and they go a little Shopping Spree at your expense. So when you go on vaction or a night out keep your key cards and distroy them so this kind of stuff does'nt happen to you.
