    For those who may have missed the announcement at the top of the page, we have a new Forum launching on Monday 3/13. Here's the important details.

    • We're migrating off vBulletin because ever since they got bought out a few years ago their product has gone downhill and now it sucks.
    • The new Forum will be run using XenForo, which was started by the people who left vBulletin when they were purchased.
    • Since it's new software it's going to look, feel and work different. Yes, that means CHANGE is coming! :eek:
    • All of your accounts, posts, messages, etc will transfer to the new site. The only thing we may not be able to move is the Likes. We're working on that today. If we can get it, great. If we can't, oh well. We'll start over from ground zero and build them up again.
    • Yes, some things may be broken or not work properly at first. I'm sure there's going to be some bugs to work out.
    • The mobile app should continue to work seamlessly with the new forum. Although any time a developer tells me it "should" work that pretty much means they have no idea and it's going to be a disaster. So be prepared.
    • Thankfully the new site will be mobile friendly so using it natively in the browser on your phone will be MUCH better. No app will really be necessary, although it will be nice to have.
    I think that about covers it. The Forum will be down temporarily on Monday morning as we load everything up and get it running, so be prepared to focus on nothing but work for a few hours. :)

    Thanks everyone!

    You'll just keep proving there's some legitimacy to the small hands thing. From what I hear through gossip, none of it has been working for you anyway dinky. Don't sweat it....


    ROFL...Justin...posting goldness!

    ANywho, good luck with the new forum change guys, thanks for all your hard work, fwiw.
    I don't care about carrying over the "likes" record but I certainly hope we can keep the feature overall. It's one of the best forum features going IMHO. I've been a part of several forums and it's just a cool feature.

    We will have a "Like" feature, I just don't know if we'll be able to port the number of Likes that you have now. So we may all start back at zero.

    Weird... I didn't even know they kept track until I read your post and started poking around.

    Guess I have no issue starting at 0!

    I never pay attention to totals except the notification thingy I like to have it cleared in case something new pops up there like a PM or whatever.
