I've just completed a round of updates to the system. These include the addition of two new forums:

The Professional Webmaster [webmasterworld.com] and Asia and Pacific Search Engines [webmasterworld.com].

The Professional Webmaster:
For issues related to being an independent contractor, consultant, or working for someone else. If it is business related, feel free to drop it in here.

I am excited about this new forum since there really isn't anything else like it around. I'm always asking friends how they do things. This forum could be a great community resource.

I raided a few hundred messages out of other forums that fit the topic.

Asia and Pacific Search Engines:
Currently the hotbed of internet explosion. There are many of us members who are just now educating ourselves about countries like Australia and Japan.

We have many members and lurkers in Asia, and our expansion is directly related to user requests and needs. We are living up to our domain name ;)

Thank you for dropping into the above forums and helping get these two new forums kick started.

Other Updates:
Renamed Tedsters browser forum to Browsers, HTML, and Page design. Seems more appropriate to the content we have been placing there.

I also moved a very large set of posts around. Members tend to use Oilmans Webmaster General and DrBill's Search Engine Promotion as catch all locations. Often those posts belong in other forums. I try to wait until a post has gone stale a few months and then move them into the appropriate category. So if you get a 404 error on an older post you have bookmarked, it was probably moved.

System Notes:
We broke all previous unique user and page view records last Friday. We cracked 35k pviews with 5k unique, and produced over 500 public and private forum messages.

Thank you to the members of Webmaster World for helping to make this what is the hottest, fastest growing webmaster community on the internet. Our ultimate goal is to be nothing short of the world wide home for webmasters. We will continue to expand our forum offerings to suit the needs of members.

What's ahead?
Things in the works include moving the site format from the current flat file database system, to a SQL formatted database. This should be transparent to usage.

New server. We've leased a new server and will be moving sometime after the first of the month. We should see an increase in speed, stability, and possibly options offered. I'll give a weeks warning before the move, as it may mean a day of down time as DNS filters through the net with the new ip address.

Thank You
Brett Tabke

I also added the Pay Per Click search engine forum. While doing so, I raided a few dozen posts - some were recent. I was amazed at how many posts I rounded up on the topic.
