Lots of cool changes in what will be our 5th iteration of the main Wild Bill Guarnere site...a social community that will live outside the forums, new store, tons of Guarnere family never-seen photos and letters, it's gonna be really cool.

Sneak Peak:

Hey Frank,

I will totally let you know. In fact, maybe I can have you be one of our testers for that part of the website. Let me know if interested!

It looks good Gino, I like the way it makes "Wil Bill" far more prominent, after all, he is our figure-head !

Yeah the basic idea is that the entire site will become more of an interactive social media site for people interested in our niche topic. There have been a lot of areas that I've wanted to update for a long time, but I wanted to wait for the technology to catch up and for the most part it has. A lot of what we'll be doing should make the site a lot more interactive on the FRONT end (not the forums, they'll stay like they are). I've always felt the rest of the site gets no attention, and that'll change with this newest version.

Stay tuned!

Whew! Gino, thank you for putting a 'buy it now' button about the book, Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends', right on the first page and large enough that folks can easily see it ... as I can't tell you how many folks I send over to the forum from youtube to purchase the book and they have trouble finding where to go to buy it.

Not off topic at all! Planning to launch the new website with the video. Should be about a month!

Hey Barbara,

Hope you're doing well. I agree and much of the site is going to focus more on Wild Bill "the man" and things like photos, memorabilia will be more at the forefront. Oh, and by the way, we'll be featuring a lot of your Wild Bill YouTube videos, too, if that's ok with you!

Gino,

I am feeling great!

Cool beans that you will feature the video's! I don't mind at all and in fact am honored you want to use them. I hope to do another soon; have a great idea and want to get it on film.

Glad you're feeling great, Barbara.

All, we'll need some beta testers in about a month or so. Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks!
