Actually I may start selling coffee on my site....My brother has a coffee shop in the San Francisco Bay Area and his supplier is selling his roasting business.If my brother ends up buying it I will sell from my site and my brother will ship the orders.

"Sadly, Monique could not be tempted into dropping even a single hint and even the ever faithful Lu remained tight lipped.

In the midst of the thunderous silence the Yola Champs had to sit in their lounge, sipping strong coffee, wondering what the morrow might bring. . . "

*Sigh*

Oh I see how it is...I think you might like keeping us in suspense a bit....That is cool to be in the lounge though... I do love coffee and the company would be great.

John, GMT means Greenwich Mean Time - i.e. that is UK time.... Looks like it was actually around 3pm GMT when they started - Lee.

Sorry, that was wrong. Logins not disabled just yet. The message has been posted on the homepage to give every one some last minute warning, but logins are still active.

We will be starting in a few minutes though.

Yola logins are now disabled and the release is underway.

We expect to be down for no more than an hour, less if possible. Will let you know if that estimate changes for any reason.

Hello Esnack

Currently, we do not have member registration feature. This is on our feature request list. We know that many people would like to have people register for accounts and have logins for their sites. We will need to do quite a bit of development to make this possible, so please be patient while we work on this.

This might not be quite what you had in mind, but you might want to try using Google Friend Connect. You can find information on how to add it to your site with this tutorial: Adding Google Friend Connect.

If you're wanting to create sign-up form where you can simply collect information of people who signed up to your site, you can use a form creator such as Form Assembly or Wufoo (both are found under "content" in the site builder) or another excellent form creator is www.jotform.com.

Thanks for the surprise. I logged in a little earlier and checked a couple of things, but being a dummy I didn't check the forum. So I got my first surprise when I deceided to log in again and ad some stuff and find I can't for right now. No big deal, Yola keeps things running to smooth for me to complain about new stuff being added. I'll just kick back and have another cup of coffee and watch some sci-fi for a while. Thanks for keeping everyone posted on things Monique. You're doing one heck of a job.

We are now about 40 minutes past the initial projected time, 9am PDT, and 10 minutes past the revised time of 9:30 PDT. We found another bug which we are fixing, hence the delay. We are adding an additional hour putting the new estimate at 10:30am PDT, but we will be faster if we can.

This time I'm quite irritated by the interruption. Bug maintenance is one thing; planned interruptions should occur when demand for access is lowest.

Hi Irv. Yes, we agree. We looked analyzed our average logins and selected the time of the day, and the week with the lowest logins. So right now is the time when demand for access is the lowest, which is why we are doing this now. We regret that it is taking longer than expected, but we would like to ensure a trouble free release to the best of our ability.

Will those bugs ever end ?

Will the bugs ever end? Probably not. As long as software is being developed, and new features are being added, bugs will happen. It is a reality that developers live with on a permanent basis. Of course our job is to make sure that bugs do not have a negative impact on customers as far as possible. We do our best and we always regret it when we fail. In this case we have found the bug during the release, instead of after, so we are happy about that.
