Delphi to Host PCC

Delphi to Host PCC

Post by J. Maddiga » Tue, 14 Jul 1998 04:00:00



As many of you know, Arlene Thayer posted in another message thread that
after four years of managing the Polymer Clay Central Web site, it is
time for her to move on. Many heartwarming messages have been posted to
her here, and I'm sure she has received many personal emails as well. We
all sincerely thank her for her untiring efforts in developing PCC into
a resource we have come to depend on.

I'm pleased to announce that Arlene has chosen a new home for the site.
Polymer Clay Central will be hosted by Leigh and Stephen Ross at Delphi.
This seems like an excellent solution. Leigh and Stephen have the
technical know-how, time, resources, and server space to undertake this
project, but more importantly, they have a love, respect, and genuine
enthusiasm for our medium. They have a network of helpers, too. Kris
Richards already co-hosts the popular Delphi Polymer Clay Forum with
Leigh. Molly Zeck (Otterfire) assists at this free forum located at
http://forums.delphi.com/m/main.asp?sigdir=polymerclay .

Polymer Clay Central will be located within the Delphi Polymer Clay Web
site, which will be accessible to everyone on the WWW. The message
boards and chats will be incorporated into the Delphi Polymer Clay Forum
boards and chat rooms.  Getting to them will require visitors to
register with Delphi, but there is no charge for these services on the
Web.

During the transition, Kris Richards and I will be liaisons between the
new PCC and rec.crafts.polymer-clay. All of us are committed to
maintaining PCC as a valuable resource for polymer clay artists. To that
end, Leigh and Stephen would like to keep as much of Arlene's original
content as possible intact, and integrate it into the Delphi format. In
time, the plan is for the site to evolve according to the needs and
input of the artists. This is the quality that has made PCC so valuable
in the past. Leigh and Stephen recognize that and will do their best to
carry on the tradition Arlene started.

Short term, Arlene, Leigh, and Stephen will be involved in the logistics
of transferring the massive amounts of data. They will be spending many
days in the FTP transfer process alone. Long term, Leigh and Stephen
want to be responsive to the polymer clay community at large. They
invite anyone with specific requests and suggestions to contact them

Arlene has a proven record for making the right choices for her site,
and her selection of a new host is no exception. She said it best in her
previous post, << PCC lives on. >>

Thank you, Arlene. Welcome, Leigh and Stephen.

Great choice!   I know Leigh from GEnie (LONG time ago!!) and there couldn't
be a better choice!  One awesomely talented polyclay artist!!

Bravo Delphi folks!!!!  (and everyone else who is assisting --there's no way
I know them all!)

And bravo Arlene!!!  I just discovered PCC a couple of weeks ago, and it is
truly amazing what you did with it.....

And a big thank you to all involved!   If not for you, I wouldn't be here!

Thank you Judi, Leigh and Stephen for stepping forward with this fabulous
offer to continue PCC.  I am so comfortable with the choice.  I have been
hard at work the last few days getting eveyrthing ready.  I am looking
forward to visiting the new PCC at Delphi.

I can't get into Delpi.

When I tried yesterday, it told me that my email address was already on file
and I should enter my password. I have no password or report of this site in my
internet notebook that I keep, so I asked for a new password,  which they did
send me.

But it doesn't work and I'm locked out that site.

I HATE sites with passwords. Why does anyone need to know all that information
about you just to read craft info?

I have not noticed an increase in spam, but then again i have AOL.  I will
check with leigh *because i have gotten mail on this as well.  I was under the
impression that Delphi kept your email addresses private, because members were
complaining about additional spam, i will verify this and let you all know.

I don't really care about the spam unless it gets out of hand but I cannot
access the Delphi Forums even with a password and all that and worst of
all, they have not responded to my e mail so I can correst the problem.  I
hope that access to polymer clay central is not going to be limited by
delphi problems.  Could someone familiar with Delphi help me?

   i'm happy we will still have pcc.but without your  touch behind it, it
just won't be the  same.
   arlene, you have single-handedly given   not only this entire group
but also others i know personally who have taken up  THE CLAY after
visits to pcc, more information than anyone or any book.
    before i even knew there was anything on the web about polyclay, i
had no idea where to  take my clay to another level. my husband did a
search and found pcc and i was off and running.  i want to thank you for
 that. pcc has had a bigger influence than you realize.  
   you have done well, be proud.

Being a little computer challenged, I read the cookies enabled phrase as
something a little on the risque side!
