After many months of tweaking and labor, I'm happy to roll out the latest edition of Cleveland Swings. This is a "less is more" kind of revision, in that I've removed several features that people weren't using in an effort to highlight what people are using.
The biggest change to the website is the deactivation of the forums and most user accounts. Most of the traffic on our forums has moved to social networking sites like Facebook, and people just weren't using them. I still have all of the old user accounts and forum data, just in case. In fact, in a few weeks I'll be able to bring the forums online again in read-only mode for people who want to indulge their nostalgia.
While people were not using the forums, they continue to use our calendar and FAQ. Those features have been moved to the new website. It many be a couple of weeks before I can update all of the links embedded in the FAQ, but the material is up there. Despite the deactivation of user accounts, everyone is welcome to submit events to the calendar. They won't show until I approve them, but that only takes a couple of hours (to a day). Community organizers (and other people who frequently make events) will retain their accounts, which lets them post events without approval from me. I've already contacted these people. If you submit a lot of events and would like an account, email me at
With this done, the next step is to work on social networking (namely Facebook) integration. More on that later!
