    After many months of being a public beta, now is the time to take Digiex from the beta stage to the final stage. We are now declaring Digiex open!


    Now that the grand front page message is over and done with, lets discuss what's different between the past and now. The first change you will notice is the new look, its been in the works for a while and we are proud to show our new visual navigation bar and company logo!

    We have adopted the slogan "Feed your Mind" which may sound a bit weird at first, but after a while we hope you will find it fitting. Digiex is all about the spreading of information and discussions from one person to a wide audience and we feel this slogan fits well with that. At Digiex you can "Feed your Mind" in many ways, from reading up on how to do something in our guide section, to sharing your experiences with reviews, to playing games in the arcade or downloading lots of freebies.

    You should now also find the site bug free and operational. We have worked hard over the past few months fixing all the bugs, designing and customizing the forum and portal software which should now be fully operational. If we missed something though, please feel free to shout at us in the members forum.

    For members, both past and present we have a benefit for you to celebrate the opening:

    Digiex Mail powered by Windows Live. Don't you hate it when you sign up for an email address and all the good names are taken? Well now you can sign up for a Windows Live Hotmail email address but on the Digiex domain meaning all those taken usernames on hotmail.com and live.com are now free for you to use!
    Get your own personal address like 'James@Digiex.me' which looks a lot better than 'JamesHill1988@hotmail.com'!

    We thank all of you who joined us in our open beta, and hope the rest of you shall join us soon! We aim to hit our 1,000 member mark next and continue to expand from there. Also to all of you who kept asking about the Arcade, yes we will begin adding a new game every week like we promised so check back regularly for new games!

    Glad you like it, you have no idea how many hours were spent doing that and how many different versions we went through to get to how it looks now.

    I still can’t actually believe we are finally out of Beta! <:o)<:o)<:o)

    Agreed, I was pleasently surprised with the new banner when I logged in this lunch time. Good work Nimrod and InsaneNutter! Also Saffin if he's the one who helped out with the new logo ;)

    Congratulations guys!!!

    I happened to chance upon your site via a google search and decided to sign up (not knowing that it was just officiated - moving to production, that is - just a few hours ago!).. LOL!! Yup, I guess I can consider myself lucky :)

    Anyway, may the site bloom, grow and expand at an exponential curve! And may it hit it's 1,000 members mark in a very short time!
