All:

As you know we made a switch to DolphinsNation in January when we came back online. After getting feedback from you the members we have decided to go back to FinHeaven.com!

When a brand name has served you well for so many years you stick with it. Also since we are bringing back that old time sense of community we felt going retro makes sense.:lol:

Many thanks :up:to our great staff Mods and Admins who have been working hard to get feedback and working with me on the change and thank YOU the members for letting us know how you feel. This is your site. A site by fans and for the fan.


This is YOUR FinHeaven!

Just a quick heads up everyone, www.finheaven.com is now completely back. Our front page is alive! It looks awesome, and I'd personally like to thank Osmo, and 3p for all the work they put in to make it happen. You guys Freakin' Rock!


(Matt I'm sure will have more to add later, but I just wanted to get the news out there.)

over the coming weeks we'll be adding more content to the front page but for now, enjoy guys.

Ps, Thank you MikeO for being more than patient while your interview sat in limbo.

Looks nice! :up: One part I didn't like is the upper right corner section of recent posts. Didn't think it was necesary to see the member name of who made the last post. That was a favorite part I enjoyed in the old finheaven front page. Maybe have the title of the thread in bold and number of posts in parentheses next to it....kinda like before.

Love it, only thing I would say would be to change that very bottom bar from black.

Elsewhere, it looks better than the official site.

FinHeaven is so excited to have the front page back up. We hope you enjoy it and realize that it as a sign of more to come...and there is more coming. This year promises to be one of the biggest in the sites twelve year history.

On the front page I want to encourage you to:

A. Read the commentary. It is an existing one but we thought it deserved some page time

B. Thanks to Mike O for the interview with David Hyde. WOW! What a way to start the new page.

C. Go to FinRadio.net! Not only are there some great shows every night of the week, but starting this Sunday, myself and D-Day will be hosting FinsWrap every Sunday night at 8PM! Cool, huh?

Finally, I have to publicly thank the staff. I have been involved for over two years in ownership of this site, and I am blown away by these guys. They all came together and really took on a lot of work, hours, and responsibility. They are loyal to the site and are passionate about what we are doing. We are united in a single focus, which is to give YOU the best fan experience on the internet. The results you are now starting to see is becsause of them. 3P and Osmo have labored on getting the page design and the site's backend right. Your Admins, Wildbill3, 3P and D-Day, are the heart of the site and have put in dozens of hours a day on our internet home. The Moderators:

I agree.

I get all my info on this site. When I was in the military, this site was something to look forward to when away from the US. Now that I'm back in FL to stay, it's still something to look forward to every day.

Great job to you all!! :woot:

Nice job guys.

Front page looks fantastic! :up:

I'll also add this site gets bonus points for actually keeping the scheme in actual Dolphins colors. Other sites I've seen for some reason have chosen to neglect that little detail, which is important IMO.
