This should not have happened, but it is…

No, of course the child did not fall into the well. Wet feet didn't get it either. But if much-needed data is still stuck somewhere in the bell wire in the deepest Atlantic and discuss with the fish who is faster, then it is simply not possible. Point. It's not nice, but at least it's nice.

We can certainly do a lot, only that with the magic is not quite yet. But we are also working on it, promised. The most important articles are already available again, even if the picture galleries are still missing. But it is beyond our power to speed it all up. A lot of it also boils down to hours of reverse engineering, as there are no documentations and shortcodes have not been handed over.

Just one example of many: When a reviewer exported clean chart data in crack-sharp PNG files to a slideshow, it used to be the case that it was generally converted to compressed JPEG images and also reduced in size. Only to render it later scaled up again in the browser. We will eliminate all this on this occasion, because we are currently loading all the original pictures and rebuilding all the galleries. But that's just a tiny part of what remains open.

Disappointed not to have found the ultimate flyer site today? We are, but two weeks is only two weeks. We were therefore faced with the important decision on how we could and should use the two weeks allocated to us for migration with the greatest possible added value for readers.

That's why things like the top story box ("article carousel") or categories, as well as various graphic and content players, were and still are in the priority. The important thing for us first is to get all the content for posterity. Because soon the transatlantic tap will be turned off and everything will be deleted in the original. Then you should already have the copies. Klickibunti is coming, as well as Laberecke and social media. Don't worry!

We will also present new concepts and produce new content again. We now have the stress and pressure to deliver and you can enjoy watching us sweat. And you know what? Let me be allowed to do so! You have kept us faithfully for years, now we'll just dig a little bit. Will. 🙂
