Forums Software Update

Hi everyone!

Just to let you know that I will plan on doing an update on the web forums sometime this week. It looks to be a moderately involved process, so the forums will be down for an hour or two while I work on it.

Well, for 2013 we had 25 unique visitors hit us initially from the .org address.

Re: Domain Registration

I'll look at some stats tomorrow or on the weekend. Since we converted everything over to kcminiclub.com I'm pretty sure all traffic is going that way. I think the main benefit at this point to keeping the original domain is to keep it from getting into the hands of a spammer or someone whose going ...

I didn't realize it until this evening, but KCME and this website just turned ten years old! It doesn't even seem like it was that long ago that capsaicinmini started talking on some other MINI website (I honestly don't even remember which one it was!) and decided to get KCME up and running.
