On the weekend of October 29th and the 30th, the MinifigNewsguy is migrating hosts, same provider, different cloud all in the name to be more financially flexible and keep the overhead low.
For instance, minifignewsguy.com’s domain will be renewed early to avoid a spike in costs for dot-coms in some providers.
Also the “root” for the site, is actually in a sub directory. Presently it’s under /sites, and the new home, will be /home/whatever-content-that-I-post-with-date-and-etc
On October 28th, any new content will “freeze” in order to preserve all previous content of more than one hundred posts from corruption.
On the weekend of October 29th and the 30th, will be the migration from one cloud to the other. This will result in potential interruption to the experience including redirection and a new “root” for the site.
By Halloween, you should be visiting content starting with minifignewsguy.com/home/whatever-content-I’ve-Posted. If you hit a Facebook or Twitter link with the ol URL, it should redirect as part of the migration process. We hope the migration process is smooth as possible, please stay with us!
Hello my Fellow Minifig newsies!
Today, as I can’t wait for August to start, a new week and a couple soft launches. Let’s break ’em down
Beginning today, @minifignewsguy is also on Patreon. It’s to give people content that will be exclusive for the Patreons; specifically in original content, in production, in post production related to Lego and shooting minifigures. I am a shutterbug too, and I possess nearly 60,000 images, so related to Lego and newsgathering, I may also share. Pricing is still TBD.
As your humble minifig newsie, I’m very forward thinking in new tech… just takes about 5 years to catch up! Today marks the introduction of a Discord “server” with the handle as the server’s name. For those who are not familiar, it’s basically Slack meets Microsoft Teams meets the big social platforms. Certain discussion topics are similar to what I have been posting here for a over a year now.
There are no other plans to keep on expanding, there is so much anyways. And to rest assured for the legal copyright holders, by no means will there be an expectation of trading content or using copyrighted content in exclusive/locked content. Want to make sure the counsels aren’t going to have their hearts explode with these new endeavors!
