Yo ho ho fellow Zombie Walkers!
I have some great news for you today. Our total revamp of ZombieWalk.com has just been completed! The Zombie Walk forums have just been switched over to vBulletin so you'll see a variety of improved functionality in addition to a more organized design (Originally, we were running an old version of phpBB and it was overwhelmed by spambots). You'll also probably notice that the design is a lot wider than it used to be so you won't have to scrunch down your zombie walking photos any longer if you want to include them in a post. If you want to start / promote / join a zombie walk, please go to our forums and post about them there!
In our continued effort to combat spambots
all new users wanting to create a Zombiewalk.com account must read this thread.
For those of you in the United States, you'll no longer have to ask me to create forums for your specific state. I've finally created forums for every state and organized them by region so they'll be much easier for you to find. International users, I haven't forgot about you either! If a forum doesn't already exist for your area and you would like one created, just drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to set one up for it.
We'll also soon be enabling user blogs for every member of the ZombieWalk.com forums! Right now they're currently only set up for admins like me so I can post news here on the homepage of ZombieWalk.com, but as soon as the user blogs are ready, I'll be sure to let you guys know.
Of course, I have to thank Shawn (aka: Cfr5), because without his help, none of this would've been possible. So kudos to him for getting the forums converted so nicely without losing any of the forum or user data!
Also, since I know a lot of you are horror & b-movie fans, be sure to check out my new weekly web show "Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum" which airs LIVE every Friday night at 10pm PST. If you grew up on a lot of the old horror & b-movie hosts like I did (Commander USA, Elvira, etc.) I'm sure you'll get a big kick out of the show. We show a bizarre movie every week and always have new guests to join in the fun... plus you can interact with us via chat room while we're on the air! You can learn more about the show at docmock.com.
Lastly, be sure to visit I-Mockery.com for the best Halloween celebration on the web every year! Two full months of nonstop Halloween coverage from September to October!
Thanks again to all of you who've helped make ZombieWalk.com the best online community for people to start up and join zombie walks in their town! Halloween is right around the corner, so this is the best time o' the year to get a zombie walk started up in your town.
