New Website
« on: August 21, 2015, 08:23:37 PM »
Congratulations Dennis and Nolan!    :twothumbs:

I am sure members will have questions... Here is a start:

1) I only see monthly VIP membership?  Will the annual one disappear after our current one expired?

2) Will all the courses currently available be added to the new website under courses?  For e.g. Let's us draw, Advanced Watercolor, Landscape, etc.

3) Are all the lessons on the new site already?

4) Is this correct:  We will follow the lessons on the new site, but will still post our painting in this current Forum for C&C?

5) The new website is definitively less cluttered, but for those familiar with this old one, what is the advance of migrating to the new one?
Cheers, Annie

 :thankyou: Annie

1) The new site only has a monthly option yes - you and other yearly VIP members will be contacted in the week to move over to the new site - just giving myself a chance to sort any bug that might occur with the new site

2) Yes all courses will eventually drip to members - one of the added benefits of moving over

3) All the classes are already loaded yes, I am however still busy loading the courses

4) On the new site each class has it's own area on the class page where you can post your artwork from the class and ask questions, etc. and is extremely easy to use

5) The big advantages are: the new site is mobile friendly so works great on all devices. The system itself is a lot easier to use and makes more sense. Then we have added in ebooks and courses as well as bi-weekly live classes as added benefits to increase the value for money

Hope that answers the questions. If you have any more, please ask O0

Have you decided which day of the week they will be on?

 :party: Love that live classes are back!  :clap:

Are you going to add a forum to the new site in the future?

Layout is great!

Wonderful, looking forward to the migration.  No obvious bugs on the preview, will test more when fully live.

I absolutely love the classification of each classes as: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.  Notice the classes appear to be listed as older at the bottom, newer at the top... so I will be able to continue working my way up... figuratively and physically  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Thank you Nolan  :thankyou:

P.S. Abstract Landscape (the city one) is listed under landscapes but not abstract  :)
Cheers, Annie

Great work, guys.

The resuming of live classes periodically will be great fun.  I think it is something we thoroughly enjoyed, but understand why you needed to stop them to work on the new site.

Hope you can get back to a more normal life and some painting time for yourself now that the hardest part of the switch is done.

Thank you for continuing to make Paintbasket such a wonderful HOME for artists.

I love the new site and it's easy navigation.  Thank you for all your hard work Nolan.  Dennis I hope you took time to make him coffee now and again, in between watching him sweat  :2funny:

Ah, Dennis, good man.  Giving credit where credit is due. 

Just remember  if it weren't for you (and Anna), there would be no Nolan!.

I too am excited about the new website and honored that you chose my before and after roses as examples of how someone can improve dramatically (and may I emphasize DRAMATICALLY!) in a short period of time due to the lessons and teachers in this life changing program! Sounds like I should hold off joining until we current VIP members hear from you, Nolan...
Cheers,
Sharon

So this sounds like a formal segregation from the VIP members from those interested in just one or two mediums. We will miss your input. :-\

I did it!! I took the plunge, cancelled my PB membership (a little teary eyed at that) and am now a VIP at onlineart!

the new site is only at Phase 1, once the dust clears and the teething problems have been sorted, I will move on to phase 2 of the site. The first of these is to get an even better forum system going. O0

I think commenting on a specific class and uploading your artwork is now infinitely easier on the new site. It just still needs the smileys and the forum part where we can check all chats in one place and send PM messages. Won't take me too long to get that set up O0

Barry, the intention is not to segregate, but to simplify. With all the different clubs, classes and courses etc. our system just became so complicated. We hope that our members will see that although the VIP is a little more expensive, the value they get is ten fold more.
