Round 1.
Round 1.
06/29/11 at 03:23 PM by Jason Tate
The very first staff members have been given access to some of the new AP.net this morning. Literally the first people besides me to play around with anything and get a feel of what the new website is going to be. Pre-beta launch even. It's a bittersweet moment for me. Like pulling back the curtain on something that has been almost 2 years of labor. My brain saying: PLEASE FUCKING LIKE IT, holy shit, PLEASE LIKE IT.

I had a weird realization earlier today. This is the website I see running in its new form - or slight variations (always going to have to upgrade in some way) for maybe 10 more years. It's built to be easy to build on to - easy to change little things. However, in 10 years I'll be almost 40. Ugh, that scares me by itself ... however, there's a good chance...[read more]

Is there a way to get invited to the beta testing when you do choose to launch that?

Mmmmmm Beta testing.... aside from that , everything you have done to this point has been phenomenal, and the fact that you've done it all on your own in your parents basement just makes it that much more impressive. Most websites have teams of web developers, designers, projects managers, and marketers that put all of this together. You just said fuck it I'm doin this on my own. There's a lot to be said about that. It was a lot more work then it could have been, but I'm sure then end product will make it all worth it. I started lurking this website when I was 12. 7 years later I'm glad I finally joined up. The community you've built here is so much more impressive them the music side, which is already damn impessive.

I would love to beta test. Like, legitimately test. I'd be glad to try it on multiple browsers and OS's, and if you wanna put together a list of focus areas I'd do that too. I mean obviously I'm at the bottom of the AP.net seniority totem pole here, but if you want the extra eyes I'd be glad to help.
