Well everyone, BuckysRoom is now officially thenewboston!

For anyone who is curious about the change, well grab a blanket because here is the story… (at least a very condensed version of it)

First of all, this social network was never supposed to become this big. About two years ago I wanted to make a VERY simple social network, just for a short tutorial series. So I purchased a small hosting plan and the domain name “BuckysRoom” for a few bucks because that was the first name to pop into my head.

Once people started signing up, I hired a few developers to help out with some of the programming. Over time we kept adding more and more features to it and now here we are. So it was basically just a tutorial series that got really out of hand :-)

Over the past few months, it became pretty clear what was going to be best for our community. I wanted to have only one website, one name, one forum. One place with everything integrated together so that people wouldn’t have to search all over the internet whenever they are looking for tutorials or need help with a problem. So that’s why I decided to make the final switch to thenewboston.

Kind of sucks to say goodbye to BuckysRoom, but I know that making everything as simple as possible will be much better in the long run :-)
