Not to be combative, but if the people responsible for the immense community building that happened in early evolt are still here, then I think they should be able to think this through. I don't need to teach evolt how to build community. We did it before. How many people are going to feel a part of a drupal install? We're a group of construction workers planning at a job site how we're going to build a great new home, when a truck pulls up with a pre-fab. Saves time and money and is built better than we would have done. Time to go home early from the job site and watch football instead. > there > were problems with our database structure? Yup.

Yup, yup. Doesn't matter if there's no content to delete, no user identities to steal, no user impact to downtime. I can't get excited about building (or configuring) a home that no one is going to live in, and I doubt I'm alone. evolt doesn't need a face lift or an upgrade to PHP5; it needs its community back. -- Matt Warden Cincinnati, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
