This is terrific news. I just spent the day at the Quilt Alliance conference where the theme of the day was the importance of documentation.

I have this nagging thought, however, that (May the Gods not see you) something may happen to TQS WAY in the future and the Quilt Indexers would not have access to critical information that documents our quilts. Perhaps, as individuals, we should consider redundancy. Is this possible by having a blog on TQS and a site such as blogspot by copy/pasting?

Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I remember a way that someone had of accessing seemingly lost URL's for the Internet. I thought once on the Internet, always on the Internet, but that may be only for public URLs.

I wish all my TQS quilter buddies had been at the Quilt Alliance conference today, and hope all will consider joining this amazing organization.

We watched as Luann Rubin recorded a QSOS interview with Jinny Beyer (it was filmed and may appear on the QA website in the future), heard a keynote address from Janneken Smucker (Graduate Curatorial Assistant for the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln), listened to a panel discussion (Curators Reveal How They Solve the Mysteries of Unlabeled Quilts and What They Wish Every Quilt Could Tell Them) and had great hands-on classes on label making, digital photography, self-publishing, and social media for quilters.


Then we got to see the Sacred Threads quilt show.

Thank you Capt'n John!!! I was astonished when I saw how many blogs I actually had back through the years. :D

Don't do any copying or transferring of your member blog history yet. We will give you plenty of time if it comes to that. Right now, Bob and I are dedicated to including the member blog history. We think it is important and we want people to keep using the blogs as a quilting history.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough in a prior post. We are definitely bringing over all the history in the Quilt Gallery, Forum, Daily Blogs, and BOMs.

So I went and looked at some of my past blogs. Didn't realize there were so many! If we have to loose the previous blogs we need good warning! I'm gonna want to save all of mine. Do whatchya gotta do for the TQS site, buisness is buisness and I get that, but I don't want to lose any of my blogs.
P.S. TQS is awesome and I will always lovelovelove it!

Just thought I'd drop this hint...If any of you have HyperSnap you can capture your blogs and the comments page pretty easily. I just captured quite a few of my blogs and the accompanying comments pages and spent only about an hour at it using HyperSnap6 and saved them as a photo. That way you get all the photos and everything. :D I don't know how it's done on a MAC though and there are probably other programs out there that do the same thing.

John, it seems that quite a lot of members have personal blogs outside of the TQS website. Would it be possible to include a 'clickable' list of all of those somewhere on the new site?

I'd also like to thank Bob for all the work he does behind the scenes. He definitely is the 'unsung hero' of TQS, because we wouldn't have the superb site that we have right now without him. Most people don't appreciate how much work is involved to maintain a complex and busy website. He should wear a very shiny halo!!

Here's my thought: if not bringing the history over SAVES TQS money - then I'm all for it. I post external links to my personal blogs - and not as regularly as when I first started blogging on TQS. I had my personal blog before joining TQS so my blog/quilt history will remain in tact.

Happy Quilting!

OK, I have journaled the making of several quilts on that. I can download them in some fashion if I have enough time. Just give us enough time to do that. Then it's ok to have it go. I now run a personal blog, so anything on the member blog is redundant after about the end of 2012.

It is very seldom that I don't understand what is written here, but the above did not make sense to me. Does it mean that you are not transferring the Gallery and more or does it mean that you are?

I don't have time to read member blogs on a daily basis, but sometimes I go there to see what happens. Do what you think is best and give the bloggers time to copy their posts to their own computer.
It is fantastic that you take your time to ask and listen to us. Most other places they just drag the changes over your head and you can like it or not. And they even tell you it's for your own best :cry: .
I love TQS and all the friends I make here in Cyber Space
