A couple of pretty ugly comments posted below today need addressing.

1) The new website has been a complete and utter nightmare to get completed. I could have deivered a half-assed result twice earlier, but in the end, I want a fully fuctional, kick ass website that 100% tackles the challenges of operating in 2013 and beyond and gives me a far better chance of surviving the next decade.

Michael Bagnall is almost dne with the new site - I'm not delivering an ETA just yet as I need to make sure it's everything needed and add content before I can announce a beta-testing launch date. But it will be in the next 2-3 months max.

The donations given at the time are all 100% spent and invested into the making of this site - which I will think will be second to none as far as interactivity and user experience.

If anyone wants a refund for their "investement" in this, please email me and it will be delt with immediately.

2) MelodicRockFest is 100% self-funded within it's own budget, as was my trip to Chicago to scout a venue.
If I had not made the trip - there would be NO MRF. Period.
MRF3 will work because of the venue chosen - I lost too much money on the last show (still paying for it) - to risk that again.

Sorry that someone can see that trip as a junket.

The MRF budget is being overseen by my wife who has worked it up brilliantly and it will work this time around.

3) MelRock Awards and any other other update expected - will be done when it's done.
Sorry that I cannot work 24/7, but the stress involved in running this site, dealing with everyting that needs dealing with on top of the odd disgruntled poster here is about as much as anyone could take.

I'll post a more general site update on the Newsdesk for those that actually read that part of the site.
