Greetings everyone! Welcome to the NEW Alexa Forever!
I'd like to thank everyone for being so loyal to the site in the face of a vicious attack. Alexa's stated multiple times that she has the best fans and the past few weeks have proved it.
I have a confession to make. The attack was not real, but staged by the admins to get people involved before we unveiled the new site (In time for Alexa's Birthday, none-the-less). My heart was filled with joy at how many of you came to the defense of the site. It's what drives us to continue to provide you with the best experiences' possible and we hope this time won't disappoint. I understand that some of you may be upset, and you have every right to be. Please understand that we didn't mean to upset anyone and if we did, we apologize. We wanted to portray that we were taking care of it and give people the chance to feel like they were helping. If you'd like to voice your dismay, you may do so to me personally at email@example.com.
I also want to thank everyone for the 5 wonderful years here as we've moved from server to server, from CMS to HTML layouts and from a "site under attack" to a hopeful safe-haven for years to come.
As with many of our past migrations, there are going to be a few changes. First of all, we're also starting over with the forums, going with a simpler approach this time. We did archive the topics Alexa's posted in, so look for the "Forum Archives" under the Site section. The gallery also has been slimmed down and we've included a few new features to play around with. Some of our pages have also been re-worked with some new tricks that makes finding information easier.
We're also going to try a small bit of advertising. We've moved to a new server and a new way to manage the site, which comes with costs. We're hoping a small bit of ads will cover, or at least help us pay for the service, which provides us with member registration, the forums and much, much more. Please let us know what you think about the placement of ads below in the comments.
Lastly, I'd personally like to thank Starfan, Pathana and Stephanie who have all been a great help in moving all the content over to the new site. Without them we wouldn't be here!
As with any move, there's bound to be some bugs, so if you think you've found one, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again and enjoy the new site! :)
P.S. Don't forget to register (previous registrations weren't able to be ported over)! You can do so here: Registration

Alexa and Darren Lynn Bousman will be working together again! Here's the news from Shocktillyoudrop.com.
Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Briana Evigan and Alexa Vega will join Deborah Ann Woll in Darren Lynn Bousman's remake of Mother's Day. The director announced via Twitter this evening that Shawn Ashmore has also been cast. King, he says, will play "Beth."
This is Bousman's second collaboration with Vega after she starred in his horror rock musical Repo! The Genetic Opera.
No word on who Alexa will be playing, but Slashfilm.com had this to say:
The role for Vega (who previously worked with Bousman in Repo! The Genetic Opera) hasn’t been explicitly announced, but she’ll likely be part of the camp of victims.

I'm just letting you know that the birthday project has been extended until August 20th. This is to give people more time to send something in, and also to give people a chance to send in stuff we still need. However, we aren't accepting the traditional messages anymore, since the deadline for that was yesterday.
