BeGroovy 1.0 Spotted

by @ Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008. Filed under Site News

So I felt a little goofy the other night, and decided to pull off a little April Fools prank on BeGroovy, since it had been such a long time since doing so. I didn’t actually have time to build a theme so users here could pick the theme for good, like I wanted to. Oh […]

Forums Back Online

by @ Sunday, March 9th, 2008. Filed under Site News

Well, wasn’t as difficult a problem as I thought… should have looked into it weeks ago. Somehow the settings file got blanked out – but there was, strangely enough, a backup file of it. Just renamed it and all is now well. Sorry about the outage guys and gals!

We Need a Graphics Artist

by @ Friday, April 20th, 2007. Filed under Art / Image, Site News

BeGroovy is preparing for a website redesign, among other efforts, and we have an urgent need for someone that does graphics arts better than Yez or I can (which isn’t asking for much), since Cougar is a bit too occupied recently to do anything for us.  The work will be mainly logos, the category icons […]

Six years ago today… Icons, Haikus, and Quotes

by @ Tuesday, February 20th, 2007. Filed under Site News

Just looking through some of the old posts from a long time ago, and 6 years ago today, we assumed the features of the former BeDope website at the request of Mike Popovic. These features were the Icon Tarot, the Haiku Generator, and the Quotable JLG. BeGroovy is proud to have kept them running in […]

Back Online – almost.

by @ Friday, April 7th, 2006. Filed under Site News

Well, we’re back.   However, there is some more obvious tweaking required, and the forums and IconTarot are still down at this time, but finally, we’re getting there.  🙂 Stay tuned, and sign up for a user account if you’d like to help post news!!! DJ UPDATE: The forums should be back now… Still have to fix that […]

BeGroovy Merchandise

by @ Friday, August 5th, 2005. Filed under Site News

In celebration for the upcoming 7 year birthday of BeGroovy… Okay, that’s a stretch… 😛 To help me pay for server fees (it’s that time again)… there’s some CafePress items I’ve put up with a “BeGroovy” brand. To start out, I’ve used a modification of the first BeGroovy logo from back in 1998 (and still […]

Backend Updates

by @ Wednesday, March 23rd, 2005. Filed under Site News

Well, nothing looks different… so I suppose everything with updating the backend scripts is a success then. 😉 Let us know if you run into any issues. As a side to this, certain keywords in the comments have been blacklisted and are dumped to ‘void’. If you are posting comments and they aren’t showing up, […]

Server Downtime

by @ Thursday, February 24th, 2005. Filed under Site News

BeGroovy’s host will be physically moving locations on the 25th between 12am and 6am. Expect a short bit o’ downtime. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for the understanding. 🙂

New look, but not quite The New Look

by @ Monday, December 27th, 2004. Filed under Site News

So here you are… due to some circumstances that forced us to move faster than planned on creating the new BeGroovy (is it 4.0 or 5.0? I’ve lost count over the past 6 years), it is not quite finished as far as the asthetics. This was rather a temporary mockup that was pushed through to […]


by @ Wednesday, December 15th, 2004. Filed under Site News

As many of you have noticed, Begroovy has become a resort hot spot for SPAMMERS. Well since it has become very annoying to continuously filter out the junk that’s posted in the comments section of every news article here, we have decided to lockdown the commenting privileges so no more SPAM can be posted. If […]

Being Groovy

by @ Wednesday, June 30th, 2004. Filed under Site News

Okay, so altp pulled some stats for me (I didn’t even know this was hosted by him!) – averaging 1,126 visits a day. That’s enough to tell me that we need to stick it out. 🙂 I had thought we were less than 100, judging by the forum activity, but it appears I was just […]

To Be[Groovy] Or Not To Be[Groovy]…

by @ Tuesday, June 29th, 2004. Filed under Site News

Okay, so here’s a topic that always ends up hot… With the name change to Haiku, does BeGroovy change it’s name and start anew? On one hand, BeGroovy has long been there for news and chat, as slow as things have been lately, we are still here. BeGroovy was a name chosen with a unthought […]

BeGroovy Welcomes New Editor

by @ Tuesday, March 9th, 2004. Filed under Site News

I’d like to take a moment to welcome Jonathan Flacke (aka skiBUM) as a news editor here at BeGroovy. As you can see, he’s already jumped in head first and posting like a madman! I wish to thank Jonathan for his most needed help here, and encourage all of you to comment here – welcome […]

We are still ALIVE!

by @ Tuesday, October 28th, 2003. Filed under Site News

Contrary to popular belief, BeGroovy is NOT dead! The typical news posting and admin ranting will commence immediately. With this in mind, please take the time to remove your deleted BeGroovy bookmark from the trash. Dust it off and let your friends and family know that they can once again turn to BeGroovy for the […]


by @ Wednesday, April 2nd, 2003. Filed under Site News

Once again, we are back from the dead. Domains are still resolving (i.e. the forums are down as I write this) and tweaks are still happening (i.e. i just fixed the haiku generator)…. but overall, BeGroovy is back on the air. Our old dedicated server crashed and burned in a pretty spectacular manner… not only […]

Yet Another Call for Authors

by @ Thursday, February 20th, 2003. Filed under Site News

Right. So I know that in the past I issued a call for authors to help liven the site up, and ended up not really doing anything with the surprising number of responses I got. I apologize to all of you who offered to help for my lack of response. The issue was that there […]

Brief outage

by @ Saturday, February 1st, 2003. Filed under Site News

Apologies for the hopefully brief outage last night. I just noticed that the server was down today, and Site5 got it up and running within 5 minutes. The issue is a remnant of our last major outage, in which one of our hard disks failed, and we crammed it all on the other disk. This […] on it’s way back

by @ Tuesday, January 28th, 2003. Filed under Site News

Right… So by now all of you who use (or used) BeMail have noticed it’s down. Turns out that the domain expired a little while back, and the notification was sent to some old contact information. Several people noticed and sent me an email, and one even went so far as to track me down […]

BeGroovy 3.0 Arrives

by @ Tuesday, January 21st, 2003. Filed under Site News

Well, after a long period of decay, it was time to rejuvinate BeGroovy yet again. Thus, I present BeGroovy 3.0. The last redesign took place back in November 2000, after 1.0 was lost in a server crash. All contents since then have been imported into our new cms (movable type), and things should progress smoothly. […]

Back Online, Back In Action

by @ Wednesday, January 8th, 2003. Filed under Site News

Okay, we had a pretty extended outage there. Sorry all. It was due to a hard disk problem in the SCSI chain, but luckily not the one that holds everything here. Unfortunately, we weren’t around to notice due to the holidays. Well, we’re back, and now that I remember the info I need to post […]
