As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

Virtualmeet.net is no longer a one man show. I am proud to report that Christian Burger (Austria), Olle Harju (Sweden) and Matt Reed (USA) have accepted my invitations to become moderators and full Virtualmeet.net staff members. As anyone who has been following our forums closely can attest, both Christian and Matt have proved to be active, positive and enthusiastic members. Olle may be a newcomer on the forums, but he has done a very valuable work behind the scenes to promote us in Sweden; the latest word is that several Swedish lifters are already setting their sight on the planned powerlifting meet in March. It is an honor to have the three of you on board!

As you all know, Virtualmeet.net is going multi-lingual in early 2008 on its quest to becoming a truly global powerlifting arena. By roughly January 2008, Christian will take charge of our German language activities while Olle will do the same for Swedish. Both men are currently busy translating the forum rules and the technical rule book into the respective language. Until then, they will get their feet wet helping Matt moderate the English forums. This in turn will help me focus more strongly on continuing the work on the site and the meet automation software, which should result in a vastly improved site by the time we are ready to launch the new languages.

All Virtualmeet.net staff can be reached via FIRSTNAME at virtualmeet.net (christian@virtualmeet.net, olle@virtualmeet.net, matt@virtualmeet.net and kristoffer@virtualmeet.net).

Without further ado, please say a big welcome to our new moderators!

Today, Måns Rinne (Finland) became the fifth person to join the Virtualmeet.net staff. He will take charge of our Finnish language activities in order to launch Finnish support in early 2008 alongside German and Swedish. Until then, he will join Matt, Olle and Christian in moderating the English forum. Måns is not only a long-term friend, but has also been involved with Virtualmeet.net since day one. He can be reached at mans@virtualmeet.net.

Thanks and welcome!

I am happy to report that the rules and forum agreements have now been translated into both German and Finnish with Swedish soon to follow. Things are bubbling behind the scenes for a January release...

If anyone wants to proof read the German or Finnish version, drop me a line please.
