We’re Moving: Time to Pack Up Your Data
As mentioned in a companion post, the Raw Sugar discovery engine that we’ve used for our search function here at Theologika.net is being closed before the end of December. Theologika.net is not closing its doors. We’re moving and we’d like to take you with us!
We’re taking steps here at Theologika.net to save the links, tags and descriptions of all the materials that have been tagged as part of the public database/search engine. We plan to offer it again, albeit in a different format, once the transition has been completed and our updated site is online. Unfortunately, without your help, we may not be able to save the information in your private directories.
These are the options for saving private directory information.
1) Save the data yourself
a) Use the copy and paste functions from a spreadsheet program such as Excel or a word processing program such as Word. (If you use Word, be sure to put the data into a table to make it easier for another program to import it.)
b) Save each item in your directory individually. You will be able to save the name of your tagged item (the URL will come with it), the name of the person who originally tagged the item, the tags associated with the item and the description of the item.
c) Once we have the new database set up, you should be able to upload your directory information and continue to use it as you have in the past.
2) Ask us here at Theologika.net for help in saving your data.
We must have the following to access the data on your behalf:
a) User name
b) Your name and email – so we can send the data to you!
Please remember, time is of the essence. We basically have until Christmas Eve to retrieve all data stored in the Raw Sugar engine. Once Raw Sugar is closed, the data will no longer be available.
If you’ll need help to get your data saved, please contact us immediately. We will respond to your note within a day. If you do not hear from us, please try again. Sometimes there can be a “glitch” and an email doesn’t get through. Another option is to leave a comment on this post. We’ll check daily for comments and requests for help in saving data. Don’t post your user name or password, just let us know you need help and we’ll contact you at the email you used when submitting the request.
Thank you for your patience during this transition time. It’s been a delight to hear from those of you who have commented on posts and to share a love of theology. We look forward to continuing the adventure with you.
