It's hard to believe that we're just a little past the 15th of the February. Oh how the time does fly.
As I posted last month before I brought my laptop into the repair show there was a potential for me to be down for an entire week. Well I was down for a week & a day overall. Since returning to work a little over a week ago I've been working as hard as I can trying to make up for lost time. I can honestly say that no matter what I've done, I feel like I've haven't made much progress.

All of the new Billboard music chart pages are now finished. After you choose your genre you will need to click on the chart you wish to view. I apologize for the incovenience this will cause everyone. This is not something I wanted to do, but Billboard shut their rss feeds down preventing us from integrating their charts into our network. Once the network relaunches all of the Billboard pages will be custom tailored to their genres.

American Country Countdown, Bob Kingsley's CT40, HardDrive, Nights w/ Alice Cooper, Sixx Sense radio show pages are all finished. Yesterday I found out that On Air w/ Ryan Seacrest shut their rss feeds down late last year. This is the second iHeart Media / Ryan Seacrest show to do this which put me in a bind. I really didn't want to loose another show due to lack of content. So I decided to convert the On Air show page into a multi-show page. The new page now includes AT40.

In addition to the above I've just been fixing a lot of little things and working on making sure the menus are ready to go when the network launches.

This will more than likely be last update notice that I post before March 2nd, and maybe even before the network launches. It's not that I don't want to keep everyone updated on what I'm working on, but I still have a million & one things left to do and most of these update notices are probably pretty boring to most of you. When the network is close to relaunching I will be sending out notices throug our Facebook page, Google+, & twitter accounts.

Thanks for visiting & I look forward to seeing you all at the relaunch

Sometimes things happen beyond our control that we wish wouldn't. One of the reasons that made PGE so special was that you could update your profile, post in the forums, check out the latest events on the event calendar & listen to your favorite radio station all without ever leaving our network. Unfortunately as I continue to progress through our rebuild, we are loosing more of our content because more and more companies are turning off their rss feeds & returning to their walled gardens. As more companies prevent their content from being accessed through various means I find myself at a crossroads as to how & where to do I take this one of a kind network. First the House Of Blues shut down their rss feeds and redesigned their site. Now iHeart Media has shut down almost all of their rss feeds preventing us from having their content on our network, and Billboard has shut down their rss feeds for their music charts as well. Unlike Facebook, Myspace, & twitter and the many other well funded companies I do not have the money, power & influence to get the attention of Billboard & iHeart Media, to encourage them to work with me or bring back their rss feeds. When the network relaunches if you all come back, register, and make the network active then you become the ace we need to show these big companies that the little guy can make something great that people want.

When the network relaunches I'm sadden to announce that AT40 will not be returning as well. However I am pleased to announce that our syndication radio show area is growing with the addition of HardDrive Radio, The Daily Download with Carson Daily This Week's Top 30, & Ultimate Classic Rock.

If there is anything you'd like to see when the network launches please share your ideas & suggestions with us at: [email protected]
Thanks

It's been a couple of weeks since my last udpate so I felt it was time to update everyone on some of the latest happenings.
I'm waiting to hear back from our template developer trying to figure out what to do about this css issue that's been plaguing the network for the past month. Except for this issue I have not run into any other issues *fingers crossed*. I have also updated several pieces of software in addition I skipped over the 3.5 series entirely and upgraded the platform to 3.6.5.

I have been working on the House of Blues pages making the "other locations" area navigatible. Right now I've got 9 locations done with 3 left to go. (They will be finished today)
All but 8 menus have been prepped to make then navigatible after the launch. (They will be finished today)
I've been working to make sure our community forum, groups, gallery, directory & other core features are working smoothly so there are no hiccups after launch.
We will only be launching with 4 different languages menus. They will all be english. They are: Australian, Canadian, United Kingdom, & United States. If everything goes as planned I will launch a new language every 2 days or so after launch. Each language may still contain some english, as we do not have a professional translator, until we get input from the community or external help in making sure each menu item is translated properly.

Let the news flow. We now have the CMA news, CNN entertainment news, the American Music Awards, & the Tony Awards flowing through the frontpage. You can click read more to read the full article as well as view the article on the originating source as well. I hope to be testing and adding up to 10 more entertainment & news sources over the coming month in preperation for our launch toward the beginning of spring. I want to say again that I do not want to put out a launch date before I'm absolutely 100% positive that we will indeed launch on that date.

On January 31st, I will be bringing my computer in for a cleaning & possible internal repair. Unfortunately I was not able to schedule this with the local computer shops in my area so I may not be able to get my computer back the same day. If this does indeed happen I will be mostly offline for a week. So very little to no updates will be made to the network during this time. I apologize for this possible delay, but I promise PGE will relaunch even if it is a week or two later than originally hoped.

Thanks for your time.

Welcome to Friday, and for some of you the beginning of the weekend. Unfortunately I still have not heard back as to why I was having the menu problems, and as such I made the decision to roll the network back to December 28th the date of our last backup.

Over the past 36hrs I have removed the music chart mods, as well as remove the extra chart pages. In addition to cleaning up the database due to their removal. I have also begun the removal of the charts from the menus as well. As of now they have been removed from 3 menus. It takes a little over an hour to do one menu so it will be sometime before all of the menus are finished.
Because of the rollback all of the tweaks that I made after the platform upgrade were wiped out and will need to be redone.

I can't say that 2018 has been very nice, but I'm slowly making progress and working through the setbacks.

PGE will rise from the ashes, and relaunch toward the beginning of Spring.

With less than 4 hours left to go, unless I hear back from Mr. Gary Trust, I will begin the dismantling of the networks menus and removal of the music chart mods. While I'm not holding my breath that he will contact me, I am going to be making a backup of our network's database, just in case.

I wanted to clarify myself from yesterday's update announcement. When I mentioned the number of new music charts it seemed to me afterwards that the number of new charts being added could be less than what will be added depending on how you interpret what I wrote. A total of 6 charts are going to be added. 2 in each of the following: Religious, Latin & Spanish, and finally Rock & Alternative. There will be 3 holiday charts if I decide to create a section for them.

Even though I was supposed to take this past week off, I have done some tweaking, including upgrading.
This morning I upgraded our platform yet again to 3.5.1. This is the last version of the 3.5 series. In addition I've also upgraded our mod software was well.
My platform considers everyone who visits the network as "Public" unless the person is signed in. As of today, you will now be known as Visitors.
In addition all registered members are now formally known as Landlubbers.
In the coming month several additional tweaks will be made affecting user groups.

I look forward to getting back to work on the network, and showing off all of the new features.
Welcome to 2018!
