New Site Update

General
A few months ago we announced the coming relaunch of ViralNetworks (with a new design and new features): New Version Coming Soon! Unfortunately, we underestimated the amount of time necessary to develop all the new features. We actually expected to be late for the relaunch, but not that late... Anyhow, we would like to apologize for the delay (and the lack of updates) but also want to ensure you that we're definitely on the way! The site is set up already but some of the new features are not ready yet, and the accounting system needs to be worked on. We really want the site to be complete at relaunch, so no one is disappointed! This time, we will not give you any date for the relaunch, but you can definitely expect the new site for the coming summer. Again, thanks a lot to all the ...

We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who have been supporting us and especially those who gave us their fe...
