Launch of new Thumdar.com: July 9th, 10th, 11th (as needed). Thumdar.com may be closed for up to 2 days during the migration.
Since the date of closing this sites registration (around May 30, 2011), there will be no profile information migrated to the new site. This means that any additions to your current profiles will NOT be included in the upcoming websites profiles. Current profile pictures will not be transferred to new profiles nor will mp3's. Also, friendships established since this time will also not be migrated. I apologize for this inconvenience.

I WILL be publishing the new website this weekend! I'm very excited but with trepidation. Sometime this weekend this site will be taken offline so that I can:
1. Perform the final migration from this old database to the new one
2. Backup this rusty old site
3. Delete all these files from the web host server
4. Put in place the new website
5. Publish the new website
Please note that there will very likely be some glitches and some things might struggle to perform optimally. The new site is still a work in progress but I decided to go ahead and publish it anyway. I've noticed that page load times in the new site are considerably slower than this current site and this is due to the much, much bigger database and significantly larger amount of applications running. I will be addressing this issue after publishing.
CALLING ALL TECHNICAL GEEKS: Please help me with any suggestions, observations or ideas on the new site after its published. I would really appreciate some input.

The new site is just about done. I'm now just putting the finishing touches on it and tweaking it to make sure I'm happy with it. I knew this was going to be a big job but I didn't expect it to take 3 months!
Anyway, my goal is to have it published by the end of this weekend.

How much work has been completed? More than I can say. It's finally coming together and I'm getting close. I can't seem to meet my own self-imposed deadlines so I've made the due date flexible. It will be done this month for sure.

I am REALLY happy with how the new website is progressing. What is most exciting is all the great software that is being included to bring new features to the site. The article "Thumdar.com Upgrade Ideas" is below this article and I would still love to hear your thoughts.
It's been decided that Thumdar.com will now officially support almost all "social virtual worlds". Social virtual worlds are similar to There and Second Life in that they are not goal oriented games but tend to focus on commnuication amongst its members.
The goal of Thumdar.com will be to bring together people from all social virtual worlds into one community where they can express themselves, interact, make friends, share ideas, ask and answer questions, learn about different virtual worlds, understand and profit from virtual economies, find tools to work with and more.
Here is the list of worlds Thumdar.com be focusing on:
