    Status of TreasureNet.com

    To the TreasureNet.com Community,

    My name is John Gonzalez and I wanted to make an announcement and confirm that the site has been sold. Let me assure you that we absolutely love this site. I watch the daily finds forum religiously. The banner finds here have so much history and amaze me every time I think about how awesome it is that members on this site are out there finding treasure and we get to hear about it and read about it. I'm amazed every time I see someone write up an awesome how-to post for tweaking your settings on a metal detector, to panning, etc. We have no intention of doing away with all the things that make this site awesome. It's the community, you guys, that make it what it is.

    We do have plans to upgrade the site though. When we first took ownership and moved the site to our brand new ultra beefy server we did notice that there were a few database queries that were not optimized. We've optimized this software as much as we can and I believe the site is now running faster then it ever has before. I still notice some slowdowns though, mostly related to some flash apps running on the site causing my CPU to load up. We are going to try to remove those moving forward as well. We also believe that switching the forum software to vBulletin which is a software we are familiar with will help us grow long-term.

    We are in the process of that conversion right now. But we did not want anyone to lose any functionality with the site... so we are taking the conversion process slow and making sure that all the custom coded scripts, features, etc. get moved over. There will be a bit of growing pains as there always is with any type of change but I feel confident that within a few weeks of the conversion the community will like the newer software better.

    There has also been a recent issue with Charter Memberships not being assigned. We are working on that as well. Everyone who paid should now have their membership levels. If you do not, PLEASE send me a PM and I'll take care of it right away. The current system is NOT fully automated so someone has to manually bump you up. This leads to delays. The newer system will fully automate this.

    Please feel free to ask any questions you want in this thread and I'll be happy to address them. We have a team of members on the site and they will chime in as well and any one of us should be able to help out.

    Re: Status of TreasureNet.com

    Hello everyone

    My name is Doug and I will also be here to help anyone with any needs you might have around the site

    Being raised in NM and for a short time in KS, I grew up hunting arrowheads, antique shopping and garage saling. Hunting artifacts and learning history are some of my other pastimes that I find very interesting. I'm really excited to be apart of this great community and I look forward to learning from all the helpful members and info on the site

    Well, welcome y'all. I like the site and learn tons of info from it. We stay frozen up and snowed in about 9 months out of the year up here, so I can treasure hunt vicariously here. And you're right, the banner finds are just that, 'banner finds'. They inspire me to get out there and find...more square nails!?!? Good luck, y'all!
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    You could get square nails for a decade until one day you find that amazing banner find and it would make it all worth it! I'm sure that's why you keep doing it as well. It only takes that one real winner to make it all worth while.

    Good luck on upgrading the software guys.

    I think the biggest hurdle to overcome with the switch might be the user base being set in their ways and not wanting to change. I hope it works out without too many angry people. I know I'll have no problem with it, but I'm also used to many different forums and forum software. Good luck with the headaches that come with switching forum software. Will the previous posts be lost or will it all convert over to vbulletin?

    And keep an eye on posters like me. We are trouble, haha. Just ask any poster.

    I am hoping that I can learn enough on the site to get good with a metal detector and post finds of my own Lake Travis is super low right now and I'd love to go over it with a detector near the dock areas.

    The normal converter would get the posts and PM's and such but not much else. We are working on modifying the importer to try and get everything and that's why it's taking so long. We've done a lot of conversions in the past so we have some experience. It won't be 100% right off the bat but we'll keep working at it until it's a close to perfect as it can be. Thanks!

    Welcome to the site John and Doug!! Look around Cedar Park while you are looking. I heard there was a town under Travis? And some huge catfish.

    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer ďThe True BelieverĒ

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    Hi Red here, welcome to THE best site online about treasure! Thank you for taking care of our issue with our problem, it's good to know that it will go quickly through now, as we like to surprise random people with memberships, just because. We have lost count of how many we have done, and want to keep doing it!
    I have a small request, please bring back spell check, there are alot of people here who need it for one reason or another!
    I just got my first machine yesterday, so now Chug isn't the only one to find stuff and dig, I get to now!!!!! Our first hunt will be at the beach, so I can learn how to dig holes properly, and how to swing my machine while using my cane for balance, wish me luck! Oh, and I think Chug likes mine better than his, mine tells me how deep the target is, and he can hear 2 different tones!!! Oh, did I forget to mention he is hearing impaired, and is also tone deaf!
    Anyway, again, welcome, we hope to see frequent posts on what you find!!!!! Red

    Ps, thanks for letting us know about the sale, it's nice to know now what was rumored before, and explains the problems going on!
    "It cant Always Be Silver Or Gold But It Is A Hell Of an Experience Pulling It Out Of the Dirt"

    Metal detecting is Like A Marathon, Your Running fast then start Slowing A Bit The You Find Something Interesting And You Pick Up the Pace!!! The Only Difference is If You Are Addicted to this Hobby there Is NO FINISH LINE HH Chug And Red

    I will work on a new member post here in a bit, still working on some back end stuff here for the site

    Definitely some big Catfish in Travis and a great local fishing community that's 99% catch and release which keeps it fun for everyone.

    We hope that every mod will stick around... anyone who wants to stay we'll have em!
