Open Letter from the founder of Avatar Social Network

  •  

    Dear ASN members,

     

    My name is Arkad Baxton, founder of Avatar Social Network (ASN).

     

    I'm reaching out to express my gratitude and make an important announcement today.

     

    First of all I would like to thank you for being a member and supporter of ASN, with you and your contribution the website has grown to over 7000 members with over a million of content like posts, comments, photos, videos and so on.

     

    Four years ago when the website opened up to public, we had a vision to offer an alternative to large social networks, like Facebook, to have Second Life, Opensim, IMVU and MMORPG players connect, share content and keep in touch without the need of real name or any real information provided which made ASN popular.

     

    Members activity have shown that the greatest interest and use of the website, other than connecting and making friends, is sharing content, photos, videos, updates, news, interest from all over the web that includes in-game activities, such as events, blog articles and updates while other features on the website have been used less frequently. That clearly showed me what members and people all over the internet want most so I decided to make some powerful changes to serve that purpose better.

     

    ASN with it's new name ASNers, having it's old and current members using it's features will provide a faster, easier and simpler interface to share content, post links, status, topics, photos and videos in a fully responsive and effective way supporting mobile access as well with integration of Facebook, Twitter, for those who wish to connect their other social media activities to the platform.

     

    With simple profiles but more visible shared content and a "share" button that can be easily added to your browser ASNers can easily post and share blog articles, photos, videos, news, and pretty much anything from all over the web.

     

    Therefore I decided to offer a redo having ASN on cloud servers, using newer and more sophisticated coding and program languages to make the website and it's functions fast, reliable and more useful for it's members and visitors. The company that will manage the servers will make sure that the website will always be in the best care and while it's administration remains in the current owners' hands, this cost effective solution of cloud hosting will help ASN operate in a reliable technical environment for a long time without the need of frequent maintenance and fixes from our end.

     

    However the new code and engine is not compatible with the current website and it's database so migrating members and their content is not possible. That is why Avatar Social Network and ASNers will be running simultaneously for the next couple months to allow everyone to sign up and migrate.

     

    You can, should you choose to join, visit the website and click on "request invite" button and follow the instructions.

     

    For the transition period membership will only be possible through the invitation system to ensure that our ASN members get to join and enjoy the website first.

     

    Once again I want to thank you for being part of this fantastic community and please do not hesitate to contact me via email or on the website if you have any questions or need assistance.

     

    See you on ASNERS.COM

    Sincerely, Arkad Baxton
