The future of YoYoNation...
« on: May 18, 2017, 02:55:17 PM »
So as you guys can see YoYoNation is back, I want to keep the forum on a separate deployment of a virtual server so the forums will be on yoyonation.net and yoyonation.com will become a store.

YoYoNation is under new ownership (JD) and has no affiliation with Pat/former owners. I purchased everything from Weber and Chris Allen because the forums alone are a historical archive and home of yoyoing. I feel it is very important that it exists. 

I really have no specific rules for the forum, and want to keep yoyonation a place where everyone can come to talk and hangout. This includes the ability to mention other stores, you will not be banned for it, ever. Just please be kind and decent to other people and you are welcome in the YoYoNation community.

With that said welcome back to the YoYoNation forums, look forward to see this community grow again :). Your comments/feedback are all welcome.

Woah. Calibuddha and Cyclontzy posting in a JD-owned forum in 2017? What is this mythical place? Truly there are Titans walking among us.

This should be played at high volume, preferably in a residential area.

Woops i somehow removed my comment..


Copy/pasted:

I can say with all honesty that allowing people (such as myself) to promote our own websites/small makers on this forum is a HUGE boon for this site, and the reason I left other forums for reddit/facebook.

I always wanted to link to a small site where someone was making something cool, such as these hand made wood yoyos that I just found because the guy followed me on instagram (http://burgeonyoyos.com, I use this as an example, because I just found it and ordered two yoyos!) without worrying about messing with the "profits" of the main store.

This shows a love for our community over anything else, and I will wholly support the resurgence of YoyoNation and anything coming off this if this is how its going to be run.

Consider me impressed and ridiculously happy...

Sloegoe is back you pendeYos!! Very nice to see all the archived posts. This was the best most active yoyo site that has ever existed and it was a shame when it started spiraling down hill. There was a golden age of Yo here when great high grade 7075 USA made yoyo's came out pre 2013. Designs have improved for new styles over the years, yoyo's are cheaper and more realistically priced but true craftsmanship and quality back then was something else. There are some incredibly valued information in these old posts and it's amazing they've come back to life!! I suggest you new to the site, to browse some of the older stuff and enjoy it as our history. People may say, "Hey YYE is still up and was around then too" This site seemed that it was for an older crowd then with a more advanced community. Those that remember, Thank
You for bringing it back.

I know it takes time and money, but is there a plan for a phone app or at least a mobile friendly version? I know the only reason i pop on YYE randomly is cause its on my phone.

I suspect that it could be set up to be Tapatalk compatible. i myself am pretty "meh" on Tapatalk, but some love it.

Onedrop has talked about doing a Code 3.   The Code 1 was done here at yoyonation.  I wanted to see if JD and onedrop could work together to bring the Code 3 to yoyonation.  We could then go on reddit, facebook, other forums to let them know, and hopefully it would drive a lot of people back to yoyonation.

i have very mixed experiences with tapatalk, but itd be more doable than a whole YYN app.
