Obviously, the website is up and running again. All the data has been cleared, and the year is 2035. Certain people and former moderators, and maybe one in particular, kept in touch with me on a frequent basis while we were gone. I'm at a point in my life now where I can get SimYard going again, so let's do this. Welcome back!

The database is an old snapshot, so it's missing some parts of the design. I'm testing everything out and replacing the missing parts as I go through it. This isn't a fast process because I have a day job and two kids now. The good thing is - there's no reason why it shouldn't all work. It did before, and it's running the latest source code.

So the plan is to work on SimYard on Monday and Thursday evenings. I want to put a proper age cap on park, so it remains a competitive place for newbies. When we re-open leagues we will be starting with rookie, so we will never have a player supply problem. The best of the best will make it to majors. Players are now retiring, too, when they're not wanted. There's always a fresh supply in interact.

I cannot guarantee anything about the pace, but I plan to automate everything before I move on to the next step. I will not be in a position where I can drop everything and come here if there's a problem. It has to work on its own. One thing that will be affected as well will be the attitude about getting teams in leagues. We'll set good deadlines so everyone has a chance to get locked in somewhere, but at the end of the day? If you get kicked out of a league and don't make it into another one, you won't be in a league. That's going to be harsh, so we are going to have to move up the deadline to kick someone out of the league. There's going to be lots of small changes like this to make everything work together well. There's also a lot of behind-the-scenes work that needs to happen to make sure we don't suffer from performance problems five years down the line when we have tons of leagues and players.

I hope this gives everyone an idea of what's to come. I don't have a strict plan. I'm trying to prioritize things to keep the site fun while we slowly get everything running again. I am going to try to keep all of the player data in-tact from here on out. My general mantra here has been that as long as the data is fair and good I want to keep it. If we started a season and there was a bug messing up the games, I wiped the games and resimmed them without the bug, for example. I'm going to try to keep this same philosophy with this beta, but I cannot make any promises - really about anything at this point until we get up and going, at least.

If you've read this far, and you're not a member of SimYard, then let me give you a little hint. The pass code to make an account is a breed of dog from a popular movie where there were over a hundred of them, and be sure to spell it right.
