May 5 - Also, someone asked "who is doing the work". A transgender owned company TransTech Social is the main contractor and one of the members here is acting as my project engineer. I want to keep the money in our community as much as is possible.
April 28 Update - Today signed the agreement to overhaul the site. The list below are the goals and should be part of the new urnotalone.com baring unforeseen issues/problems. The new site and chat should be ready in about 2 months, and the mobile version in 4 months.
The Change of Ownership of URNA is complete. Ownership of URNA is now in the hands of Pamela, who will be able to devote a lot more of her time to URNA than I've been able to over the last year. Pamela has been slowly familiarizing herself with the Administration of the site and little by little, she'll be taking it over from me. I plan on remaining active on URNA and will help out with Administering URNA until such time as I'm told my assistance isn't needed any longer. With Pamela taking over I have very high hopes for the future of URNA.
And now, a few words from your new own... [more]
As many have noticed and already commented to me, URNA has a few new Chat Room Moderators or Mods. Since some have asked, I thought I would share how I went about making the choices.
URNA means a lot to me just like many of you. I have a strategic vision that I apply to every decision including the selection of Mods.
One of the first things I did was to look at the activity of the existing Mods. As anyone who spends anytime in chat already knows, out of 10+ existing mods only about 4 are active. Most of the existing mods were not even active on the site.

At least eight people are dead in the wake of powerful Tropical Cyclone Pam, which is now tracking toward northern New Zealand. Despite undergoing some weakening, Pam remains a dangerous tropical cyclone with its strength equal to that of a Category 4 hurricane.
Pam reached its peak intensity on Friday, local time, with maximum sustained winds of nearly 270 kph (167 mph), the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane or a super typhoon. At that time, Pam was unleashing its fury on the islands of Vanuatu, a country between Fiji and ... [more]
