🚧 Warning: Resonate Infrastructure In Flux Coming Week(s?) (effective immediately)

Effective immediately, in the next weeks we’re going to be doing some major infrastructure updates that are necessary as part of our transition off our Wordpress. As a result we’ll be temporarily closing sign ups on the current website. We’ll post here to keep you all updated. We’re asking for your patience during this period, which will possibly involve broken links, broken sign-ups, and broken players. But it will simplify things significantly in the end, making an easier to maintain and build product.

This is part of a long running plan to transition our database off of Wordpress (though this will not complete this process, it will be a significant step). If you have any questions, please ask below, or DM any of the @maintainers .

I’m going to update discourse. The next step will be to move community.resonate.is to community.resonate.coop. Some disruptions are possible.

Exciting! @Sam_Martyn would you be able to help get an email blast going for this? Definitely something to email the members about.

Yea, that sounds great! I am working with @sganesh to make sure we have all of our members correctly added in zoho, since last time it seemed like there may have been some issues, but looking forward to getting things squared away there to start sending out more regular emails and posts about updates like this!

Thank you, Sam. :pray:t3:

This is great! :raised_hands:

I suppose this means uploading new music should be put on hold until the transition is complete? There’s a bit of a backlog I planned to take care of this weekend, but don’t want to accidentally drop those releases into the ether.

Yeah, I’d hold off for now.

It’s my number one priority once we’re on an easier stack to make this easier for artists themselves :stuck_out_tongue:

I have some notes/suggestions for some (presumably “easy”) adjustments to the dashboard that could make it a little easier for artists to self-serve. Where is the best place to share these thoughts? I’m guessing somewhere on Mattermost?

Yo that’s great @remst8. If on the forum, you could add them to this topic already on that theme: Fixing dashboard to be ready for artists

On Mattermost, you could try the Developers channel or create an uploads-theme channel if you feel that would be helpful for discussion. Those are my ideas!

Thanks, @Hakanto!

Considering the age of that forum topic, I think I’ll start with a post to the Mattermost Developers channel.
