Comic Vine is about to go through some big changes. We're getting a complete makeover. If you've checked out our sister site GiantBomb.com lately, you have a good idea what to expect. While the two sites will look very similar, there are some differences as some comic book data works differently than video game data.
What we want you to do is check out the beta site. Right now.
Actually, hopefully you're still here reading this.
Our engineers have been working day and night (almost) in making the new site happen. That's why we had new sign ups turned off, to ensure those new accounts would exist on the new platform. We want you to check out the beta and play around. Check out the new features but more importantly, we'd like to find and squash all the bugs before the new version launches.
Dave "Captain Cascader" Snider has a post over they explaining some of the changes. You can find that post on the front page, the news page or just by clicking HERE. It even explains how the let us know about a bug you find. The idea is to find and fix the bugs ASAP.
You'll notice some of the data over there seems a little outdated. It's a snapshot of the site from a bit a go. Don't worry, everything up through this Friday will carry over.
When is the change happening?
This is the important part. We will be putting this current live site in lock-down mode this weekend. That means any edits, submissions, blogs, reviews, etc you add after Friday, March 22, 2013, WILL NOT CARRY OVER TO THE NEW SITE. There should be a reminder on the screen letting you know we are in lock-down mode.
How long until we can add stuff?
The goal is Tuesday. The main indicator is you will notice a brand new site when you click on ComicVine.com.
So please check out the site. Try things out. Any edits made in the beta will not carry over. Which is why you can find the first issue of DOCTOR GUERRERO: MAN OF SCIENCE.
Check out the beta and help us find any bugs.
