Before I purchased the community I took a look back in time using http://web.archive.org. What I saw was a site that was active with a great team leading it and a group of members that were loyal to the site. That wasn't so very long ago. I am unsure how or why FPCH seemed to lose it's way. I do know that I plan to put it back on course.

One thing I noticed was the magazine site. There were some great articles posted on that site. I don't know why that part of the site was removed. I do know that any loss of user sign ups and traffic is related to that part of the site being closed. Content is King. Prospective users love it. The search engines love it. Google especially likes articles, guides and tutorials. While I do have the database for that part of the site I don't have the images or any of the site files. I could bring it back, but, without the images I don't know if the content will be as good. I will do a test and see what it looks like. If it looks good I'll put it back online.

So onward and upward we are headed. As you can see we now have some new tools to help create more content. There is a CMS and a blog. Anyone that is a current member and any new users can create a blog. For new users the blog is moderated so no spam gets through. For active users with more then 5 posts and staff if you create a blog any content you add is posted immediately.


Looking to the future I see FPCH and https://freepchelpforum.com our sister site as the 2 best tech help communities on the internet. When I tried to buy FPCH a few years ago I envisioned this site and my other tech site being the best. It didn't happen then, but, it will happen now.

I hope your vision for the future comes to fruition Bob.
We have, now, a small but loyal membership who check in regularly. Obviously we hope that the loyal membership grows.
We have a small, loyal and very knowledgeable staff too who check in regularly and most posts for advice are answered within a day.
Here is to a growing community :)
