New Forum Software
Well, I finally signed off on the NEW Forum software, and it is scheduled to go live next Wednesday. Soon you will start to see some redirects and temporary pages as we prepare to upload and transfer the data to the new Forum. You all need to know that there will be a little pain involved in that you will have to reauthenticate your password in the new forum...but, no worries, all of your current posts and threads will be migrated over. Once the new forum is in place we will use it for 3-4 weeks to get your feedback BEFORE we start tweaking it accordingly. This new forum will have a similar look but alot of new features including Expanded Profiles with common Instant Messaging links (ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, Skype), Personal Pages, Buddies, Private Messaging, Avitars, User Reputations and Ratings (this will take some time to tweak!), Who's online, etc.
PLEASE be patient with us during this process while we ourselves learn how to best implement and use these new features, and know that it is our sincere desire to create a great community here for us all to benefit from and enjoy.
I look forward to your feedback once the new forum is up.
Thank you for your patience,
Straight from the Fish's mouth...
