Soooo... That about wraps up 2011. I really have to thank EVERYONE who has contributed this year because due to the redesign, we failed to launch a single site enhancement in 2011. This will all change in 2012. January 11th will mark the release of Abobo's Big Adventure and in place of that Abobo promo we'll be introducing the REDESIGN LAUNCH COUNTDOWN. The date on this countdown will be the final, guaranteed date of launch (although expect NG to be down for a while on launch day).
Once the redesign is live and bugs have been crushed, expect a year of aggressive improvements to NG. We have a big list of features broken into small chunks, allowing for monthly deployments vs years of waiting. If you even mildly enjoyed 2011 on NG, 2012 should be like a rollercoaster ride. Or maybe that's a bad analogy since we're gonna go UP UP UP without ever coming down... So I guess it will be like you died and went to heaven. SEEYA NEXT YEAR!!!
I can't wait for the redesign. Although I still love the current redesign and am sad to see it go, I have no doubt in my mind that the current redesign will be bloody amazing. I think every year for NG is a great year, and if 2012 is what you say it will be, I'm going to be even glad about NG's existence. Don't ever change Tom. You and the rest of the NG staff and moderators are doing a terrific job.
