SOTAwatch is now over 10 years old and it’s retirement as a codebase is overdue really.
The first step in this process was moving the reflector across to a Discourse instance a while back. Quite a few people bemoaned the loss of the simplicity of the old reflector but hopefully everyone now sees this as a strong improvement.
The second step was the recent replacement of the old website with a refreshed version on a modern publishing platform. Some improvements to the association and summit listings compared to the old website allowed the old listings on SOTAwatch to be cut loose.
The last stage will be the integration of the spotting and alerting functionality into the new website. Good progress is being made and I expect to be opening this for beta testing over the next few weeks. After this is complete, users will have one less site to have to register and log into which should be good news!
I appreciate everyone’s patience during this process. All development is subject to time and funds available at any time.
Whilst not giving exact time commitments, hopefully this does give a sense of where things are at.
