Thanks very much to the good people at "Joyent":http://joyent.com/, who host the Gone Raw site, we have fixed our problems with the website going away for hours at a time. Boy, that was no fun! Well, no worries, it's all fixed now.
And just in time - we've just passed the 800 recipe mark and have more than 1500 users. Now that we've got our kinks worked out, we hope to find more time to add new features. So stay tuned!
Summertime is upon us and, here at the studio, our garden is brimming with collards, chard, parsley, strawberries and sweet peas! We've also just put out our "latest newsletter":http://goneraw.com/email/GoneRaw-06-18-07.html highlighting some of our favorite "summertime recipes":http://goneraw.com/recipes/list/summer. What are yours?
Hey everyone! If you've had any troubles signing up over the past few days, we wanted to let you know that it's *all fixed*. We've got all our little issues sorted out, due to our move to a new web server, and everything should be smooth sailing from here on out. Enjoy!
Over the past weekend, we moved Gone Raw to a new hosting setup. In the process, our mail server broke on us, which means that *you can't sign up for an account!* You can try, but you won't get the all-important "confirmation email." So it won't work.
We apologize with all our hearts for the inconvenience. We will have this sorted out in the next day or two, so *please* do check back. We'll let you know just as soon as it's fixed. Sorry!
Thanks for your patience, everyone - Gone Raw has finished our move! We’re on the new web server and faster than ever. We should also stay online all the time now, and not vanish for an hour or two here or there like we were.
We hope you like it!
We're excited to announce that, due to all the growth in the last few months, Gone Raw has outgrown its hosting plan! Tomorrow afternoon (Friday, June 8), we're moving to a new host. It might take anywhere between 2 and 48 hours before you see Gone Raw again. Never fear â€“ weâ€™ll be right back, and better than ever.

Thanks to each of you who took time to take our "survey":http://goneraw.com/news/show/18! We've had a chance to pour over all of your ideas and are absolutely inspired to keep improving Gone Raw.
Check out the results in our "latest newsletter":http://goneraw.com/email/GoneRaw-03-28-06.html.
Many of you have probably noticed that Gone Raw "disappeared" twice in the last couple of days. It appears that our web hosting company has been having some problems, and had to restart the computer that hosts Gone Raw. Unfortunately, this process takes a good hour or more, and there's no way for us to let everyone know what's going on, or how long it's going to take.
Oh well, these things happen. All in all, they're a great hosting company, and I'm sure they'll get this sorted out. In the meantime, we do apologize very much for the inconvenience.
Gone Raw is still fairly new (about 3 months now) and we're constantly looking for ways to improve as we grow. We'd love to hear your thoughts about what you like about Gone Raw and what you'd like to see added in the future. Please take our short anonymous survey (only a handful of questions) and let us know what you think. Thanks!
EDIT: Thanks everyone...the survey is offline now!
This weekend we added a couple new features. First, we added a much-requested *Recipe Box* to Gone Raw. You get to your Recipe Box by going to My Profile, and then click on My Recipe Box. Naturally, you have to be logged in! All recipes have a link on the right side, which lets you add them to, or remove them from, your recipe box.
We also took some time and reorganized the "main recipe page":http://goneraw.com/recipes as well. No more showing hundreds of recipes on one page! Also, you can now choose to see only recipes that use the equipment you have. Just look for the little check boxes on the right side of the screen. This is something we've wanted to add for a while. If you haven't saved up for that dehydrator you've always wanted, you can just un-check the dehydrator box, and you won't be shown recipes that need a dehydrator.
We hope you find these new features useful. "Let us know":http://goneraw.com/forums/5 what you think!
