Def's Dirty Dozen
on: July 02, 2018, 02:48:02 PM
Here we go, time for yet another long-winded speech about how it seems like we’ve been running this place forever and how we don’t plan to change our formula because it is obviously working.

Well, this year we are changing things up a bit, but don’t worry, because this will still be long-winded.  :P

Ordinarily we hand out a pile of free advertising to all kinds of manufacturers who send us prizes to hand out, and that is wonderful, but this year we are going to do things a little differently and keep the party in house.  After all, no one appreciates our members like our members.

Don’t worry though, we will still have some giveaways- we may change a bit, but we won’t change that much!

What else are we doing?  Well, first off, we are celebrating 12 years with 12% off on absolutely everything in stock in The Multitool.org Store all through July when you use the code DIRTY DOZEN at checkout- and we will have some cool new stuff in there, like some Swiss Army Knights patches to go along with the fantastic Multitool.org patches we had made a few months ago!  The Swiss Army Knights one will be available in both Velcro backed and stitch on versions as well.   :tu:

Coming Soon!


And there’s more- we are heading for another huge change, although hopefully it will be seamless to most of you.  I know some of you will experience problems though- we have made this change a few times in our past, and while Micah works hard to make the transition as smooth as possible, there are always issues.

Yup, you got it, we are working on migrating to a new server host company.  This will be our 4th company in 12 years, which isn’t bad, and unlike our change from Smurferloft, we have nothing but thanks and gratitude to give our current host, Prime Relay.  They have been excellent partners over the years, and I will greatly miss them after they close their doors.  I’m still looking at options regarding new hosts, so if you have any thoughts on the matter or are willing or able to help with the transfer process in any way, please send me a PM.  I don’t know what will need doing yet, but Micah works plenty hard for us here and might appreciate a few extra hands.

I'm also going to dig up a few of my favorite old threads that I think newer members may enjoy and may not have seen, and I encourage all of you, especially the longer time members to do the same!  It doesn't seem right to celebrate an anniversary without thinking of the cool things that happened to get us this far. 

That's it for now, but stay tuned as there will be more- and yes, I know I still owe a few prizes out from last year's celebration.  If your prize is still outstanding, send me a PM and I will get you sorted out.  It's been a hard year at the Def Household, but I'm still here, MTO is still here, all of you are still here and I see absolutely no reason to celebrate that, Multitool.org Style!   :tu:

Glad to be part of this place, even though it's been only recently, relatively seen.

Some members haven't got last year's prize yet?
Without whining??

Give those peeps a badge! :sa:
