    APUG.ORG is now a division of my company Photocentric Ltd.

    Hello All,

    I have formed a New Zealand company "Photocentric Ltd." and will be moving my websites under this umbrella company. All sites will now be a division of this company. This has been in the works for a while. Also, 2 new photography websites of mine in development will be part of this company. This has been done to protect me personally as previously everything was under a sole proprietorship. This will also allow me to streamline the managing of taxes, etc and allow me to rely on a blanket terms of service, privacy policy and help system across all sites. Within the next few hours the migration will kick in fully. The main thing you will notice is a new company wide header bar. I'm in the middle of rolling this out so will discuss more soon and answer any questions.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Unified site wide bar is now up on all sites. You can click the company name on the bar or click here to see the company home page and read a blurb about the new sites: http://www.photocentric.co.nz

    I'll now be updating many links on apug and hybridphoto to point to the appropriate places (terms of service, privacy policy, contact/help links, etc).

    Sounds like a very sensible move, and as you say puts APUG in a better and potentially stronger position.

    I had this sinking feeling that APUG had been bought out, when I saw the new bar up there...but it's a very sensible move, from a business perspective. I look forward to seeing the new sites.

    APUG forums already are digital

    We need to purify and move to a typed and photocopied mailing list format.

    Actually they are not. They begin and and analog. Digital is merely an intermediary for transmission.

    I'm all for that; provided you pick up the postage costs.

    The new bar at the top had me scared for a minute. Happy to read that it's your company and not just any company, Sean. Sounds like a sensible and logical thing to do.
