ScopeRise Downsizing.

Post by dante » Sat Feb 16, 2019 1:27 pm

Due to austerity measures I've shaved the first 20 issues from the Archive. I'm uploading all to Google Drive so if anyone wants that content of the entire site or just whatever let me know I'll give access - via email address I think.

ScopeRise new content will be dedicated to creation, promotion and monetisation of Scope user's releases (originals) made using Scope. You'll see example soon - so if you're releasing in future let me know. It will be low volume though and not fast - it may take me a few weeks to get anything together and maybe at the rate of only a few articles a year.

It means anything you want. Instead of needing google drive, I would put the files on my server. We can link to them anywhere you want. From your ScopeRise site, from a forum post, from the frontend of the site (if that's ever necessary)....the upshot is people downloading would never know the difference from your server, the downloads will simply work. No silly Google Drive separate window etc.

Also, do you need space to host ScopeRise? I can help there too if you want.

Well yeah that's the main issue. 250MB of storage is one level above in the pricing tier on server101, so by cutting it down to half - about 140MB - its cut the cost in half. The main issue pages all use absolute references would that be a problem ? eg

Yeah - but that's a big enough job - I'd probably look for some kind of batch search/replace.

Batch search & replace is simple, I can help with that. Especially if we move things, though please note I'm wanting to help you and the community not looking for ownership here. PM me your DNS provider info in response to the latest pm, if this option interests you.

Sure. I'm just about cutting cost - but I don't want to abandon my www.server101.com registered domain completely due to having a bunch of email addresses and other non-scoperise web content & cant be stuffed changing everything over to a new domain - I have a lot of stuff associated with my email addresses there. On the other hand I don't want to end up paying for 2 x domain & services. But some labour on existing content I'm OK with - just minimizing new content.

I'm ok with anything you choose, just offering what I can to keep our platform's assets available to us all.

that's what i'm talkin' 'bout!

this is part of what makes Scope wonderful. it's a unique system, and the people who use it make it not only unique, but special!
