Welcome fellow night people. Your faithful webmaster has been away at school for a few years, and things have gotten a little stale around here. But not to worry. I'm done with the (daytime) world of higher education, I've got a nifty new degree in computer science, and I'm back to champion the cause of the night owl.
We're planning some major work on the site to make it more relevant and more useful. We'll be adding new articles and new features. We need to clean up some dead links, and hope to add some fresh ones. We'll be starting a new bulletin board to allow inter-night communications. If there's demand for it, we may open a chat room. We'll be switching to a database driven platform for our "what's open" links to make it easier to find something open near you, and to make it simpler for people to list their favorite late night spots, or for those who run the hot spots to get them listed. We're also planning a place to list and look for late night job openings. We'll be creating the opportunity for visitors to be registered with the site, so they can personalize it to their own personal preferences. We'll be running some poles and surveys to see what night owls think about the issues of the day, or of the night.
If you would like to see this site thrive and address the needs of night people, there is plenty you can do to help. If there is anyone out there that understands web design or graphics and would like to help build the site, we could use the additional help. If you have knowledge or expertise about issues related to life after midnight, and would like to submit an article, please submit it at the link that follows. All work submitted with be fully credited to it's creator, unless you prefer anonymity.
Also, please contact us if you'd like to make a modest donation to support the site. To date, the site has been completely funded by it's creator. But as the site grows in size and in popularity, the cost of keeping it operating well goes up. Eventually we'll need to find additional funding. We would prefer to do so without advertising, or to keep the ads to a minimum. We'll be implementing a method to make contributing donations easier. For now if you'd like to help please contact us by email to make arrangements.
Finally, and not least importantly, you can help us by giving us your feedback. What do you like about the site? What do you not like? What features would you like to see that aren't here? How can we improve what's already here? Which of our planned improvements would you like to see first? What are some subjects that you'd like to see articles on? We really want to know. If you're a nightowl, and night worker, or if you just can't sleep, this is your site. Tell us how we can tailor it to you.
