Merry X-Mas and Happy Holiday to everyone out there. I hope you all get to spend some quality times with the ones you love and cherish. Make sure you hold them close and take advantage of this time as best as you can.
Onto the site news
Last week I gave everyone a sneak peak at the next new look of NetPredators, and we have been working hard, hitting some setbacks, and drudging on forward. Our projected release for the new skin and features of our services will be on the first or second week of the new year. When we do go for the upgrade, which will likely take about 4 days to complete, any new posts or comments on any posts or the forums will likely be disregarded. Because of that, I will not focus at all on cataloging and predators during that time.
Another new feature that we have been working is Submit-A-Pred.
With Submit-A-Pred, our site members will be able to contribute information about exposed child predators to our database. The above screenshot is an early design and things are already looking a bit different. Our only issue that we have is trying to avoid duplicate entries. I believe that will have to be something that I will have to manually handle until I can implement a proper function that queries the whole database without bringing the server to a crawl.
Only one week left to vote in the polls. Make sure everyone votes for their favorite catcher, decoy, and predator exposure website before the polls close. I want to make sure we get at least 100 votes so we have a reasonable sample size to go from.
There will be prizes for the winners as long as at least 100 votes are cast for each poll.
And speaking of Polls…
Lets face it, our weekly poll isn’t weekly, but it’s more weakly. I haven’t been changing it every week, mostly because we don’t get many votes on it within just one week alone, and coming up with poll questions isn’t something I ponder upon often enough.
But this week, we do have a new poll question.
This is our first poll that we are letting users select multiple choices. Not all answers are meant to be actual forms of child grooming. We have to throw in some normal activities so no groups can say that we are trying to single them out or anything.
Almost at 200!
We are close to cataloging our 200th child predator. We are currently sitting at 198. We would have been at 200 right now, but a predator passed away and another listing was found to have incorrect information after nearly a year of being on our website. I was unable to track down the real information on the predators, so the post just came down.
I am hoping we get at least 2 more preds properly cataloged before the years end. I have faith in all the great catchers out there on their ability to leak the preds info during a live catch. 😀
NetPredators Car Decals
I am getting ready to start working on making car decals again. I am hoping that I will have them designed and made by the time that we release the new website skin.
We will likely create another poll so the users get to pick the final look of the car decals.
These decals will be available FOR FREE. You won’t even need to be a member of the website. But supplies will be limited.
Please enjoy your holidays responsibly. Don’t drive drunk. And watch out for other drunks on the road.
We thank everyone for your continued support.
