Onward and Upward – A word from the editor

Marc Garman – Editor Vallejo Independent Bulletin

 

Welcome to the new Vallejo Independent Bulletin. We are back and better than ever with a new more convenient layout, more features and a more secure platform than our previous incarnation. As you may have noticed we have a new location (vibvallejo.com) on the web; however, all of our other url’s (ibvallejo.com, vallejoisburning.com) will direct you here. The issues associated with database security and content migration (very large) of the previous site proved too daunting to be accomplished with our streamlined funding model. But don’t worry, all the old content will be available as a static archive in their original format at ibvallejo.com. You just won’t be able to post etc. at the old site.

Moving on to the new stuff…there are a lot of great features and upgrades. A proper, up to date and secure comments section will follow each article. The security features are brand new, so the automated spamming issues of the past are (at least mostly) truly history. And the Daily Scream is back!! (right side menu link)

We also have added TWITTER for those of you so inclined (link at top right navigation bar) AND a proper events calendar. Send your events to be posted (vib.editor@gmail.com) and they will be added. The new calendar format also takes a lot less time for our legions of unpaid interns to deal with, so expect events to be posted more promptly and consistently!

It has been a privilege to provide an alternative platform for news, opinion and discussion to the Vallejo community for over seven years now. With this new format solving the time consuming technical issues we previously had to deal with, we at VIB look forward to having even more time for content creation and new features. And we will of course continue to welcome your input, submissions and readership.

And to our detractors who keep hoping for the demise of VIB I say:

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump around. We’re expanding!!!

    New site looks great! Was wondering if you plan on adding other pages/sections such as “Art & Culture”, “Local Sports”, “Dining”‘ etc. Think of the possibilities! 🙂

      Very open to new features and etc. If you have an idea for a written feature, video or podcast VIB wants YOUR input and participation. Wanna do sports? The funny man in the hat can’t be everywhere! We want you as a sports/arts/restaurant commentator! (etc.) Drop me a line and let’s see how we can make it happen. Become a VIB field reporter and you’ll get the same high pay and benefits package the rest of us do!
