We recently put up a number of "updates":http://goneraw.com/forums/gone-raw/topics/major-updates-coming-soon here on Gone Raw. We're happy to report that the site is much more stable now, but we've recognized that ultimately the code isn't tenable long term.
This just won't do! So, we've set aside a big chunk of time over the next two weeks to move Gone Raw to a completely new system and computer. This means that you won't see any fixes to the current site while we are in production.
We're very excited about the new site (which will look quite similar overall with some way cool features). We have every confidence in all smiles - we'll keep you updated!
We just finished some "major updates":http://goneraw.com/forums/gone-raw/topics/major-updates-coming-soon?page=1 to the site and are in the midst of working out some visual and other minor kinks. In the meantime, queenfluff was kind enough to post a few links to some popular forum threads that are currently difficult to find. If you have any others, please post here.

We've just added some "major updates":http://goneraw.com/forums/gone-raw/topics/major-updates-coming-soon to the website.
# It is faster. (this was the biggest update)
# The forum software is upgraded, which makes is easier to add moderators in the future.
# Things â€œpaginateâ€ better, which is totally geeky but handy
(look, no more "super long pages for recipe categories":http://goneraw.com/recipes/list/breakfast)
# Last, and the absolute most requested addition in the recent survey, you can now add pictures to recipes you didnâ€™t post!
Now, due to the major upgrades some things look a little different. Over the next few days weâ€™ll go around fixing them. Weâ€™ll probably try posting some pictures of recipes we didnâ€™t make to be sure itâ€™s working. For now, enjoy, and let us know if you find any issues!
Thanks to each of you who filled out our survey (we received 199 responses)! We've heard you loud and clear - Gone Raw improvements are in progress.
This week, we are in the midst of optimization and architectural changes (making the site faster and more available).
We also learned that many of you would like to see more pictures of recipes, so we're working away at that piece as well.
We'll keep you posted!

If you are seeing this message, you are visiting Gone Raw at our new hosting company. Horay! We still have some glitches to work out (like uploading all of the images) and such, but all of the recipes and forums moved over beautifully.
If you notice any oddities with the site, do "post a note in this forum":http://goneraw.com/forums/5/topics/6576 - we'll be checking in often!
Gone Raw has experienced some exciting growth in the last few months and, as a result, life is getting rather slow here. This just won't do at all! We will be moving the site to a new hosting account this week, which should help quite a bit.
We'll keep you in touch as we go, but are likely planning the switch for Wednesday. We'll do our best to alleviate interruptions to the site, but if you have an important event that you want to be sure to have a recipe for Wednesday to Friday, please consider printing it out in advance.
Thanks for your patience!
OregonBusiness magazine features Gone Raw in their July cover story:"10 Coolest Tech Startups...":http://www.oregonbusiness.com/.docs/action/detail/rid/33241/pg/10003. Take a look and "Meet some of the coolest startups running around Silicon Forest today."
Looks like we aren't the only ones swooning for "rawleen's":http://goneraw.com/account/show/3478 "watermelon mini cake delights":http://goneraw.com/recipes/4278-Watermelon-Mini-Cake-Delights! The folks over at "We Like it Raw":http://www.welikeitraw.com/rawfood/2008/06/watermelon-mini.html
have earmarked this delight for the 4th of July.
They also added kind words for Gone Raw - "Gone Raw is the best raw food recipe site out there. Seriously. If you're into preparing raw foods or want to learn, you gotta join."
Help us to create a category of 100% raw recipes by marking each of your purely raw recipes as *pure*. We're looking for recipes that do *not* contain items such as agave, Bragg's, Nama Shoyu, yeast or other items found on the "dead food list":http://purelyraw.com/deadfoodlist.htm (which aren't actually raw, but find themselves moderately used in many raw recipes).
