    We will be performing a major upgrade to address some of the feature issues we've had with the board of late and will be taking the site down this Friday, November 18th starting at 9:00 PM EST.

    I expect roughly 3-4 hours of downtime, but that may extend into the early morning hours if we run into any major issues.

    We will provide status updates via the site's Twitter and Facebook accounts in the event we do end up needing more time.

    Thanks man! Good luck! Do you think that this will fix the problems with threads not keeping subscriptions?

    Yep! Our testing has shown the upgrade is going to fix a plethora of issues, subscriptions included. Should be a nice wave of new features coming after as well.

    Can't test Tapatalk on the new setup, so we'll have to find out together once the upgrade is done

    Thanks for all the hard work. I'm more of a lurker than a regular poster, but checking the boards is a daily commute activity and I really appreciate all the work that goes into keeping the site up and running and keeping the quality high.

    Ha, no worries. I find I'm usually on Tapatalk much more often than the actual website.

    If there's anything specific you want to check, let me know.

    Thanks for the hard work! It will take some time to get used to it! Need up change my bookmark too. Eager to see how everything works now.

    FYI, I'm in the process right now of putting in some redirects so that old bookmarks and things will redirect you to the new locations.

    Ok, redirects should be working for links imported from the old boards.

    Hey...sorry for creating a second username...but when I login with my usual name, I can't access anything. Says I don't have permissions.

    So, oddly I can now no longer view threads using Tapatalk. Worked fine this morning after the upgrade - I even posted in this very thread.

    I don't think my Tapatalk has been updated today. Anything else that might have changed?

    In Tapatalk, I can browse the forum lists and the timeline but whenever I try to open a thread it hangs for a few seconds and then crashes.

    I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S7 if that matters.

    Yeah, really weird. old username simply can't do anything. everything I do, I get the message that I don't have permission.

    New username functions just fine.

    Some of the users had a weird setup for group membership in the old software that made them import here with no permissions. If you were having permissions issues before, it should be fixed now.

    Only thing that I can think of is that we set things up so that if you had a bookmark or something that followed the old forum structure, you'd get re-directed to the new way the URL is constructed now. I'll fire up my tapatalk and check it out to see if I can figure out what the issue is.

    Sorted. After you said that I went and did "unfollow" on the forum in Tapatalk. Then searched for it again and did "follow".

    All appears well with the world now [emoji106]

    It seems to be working for me. I did get a message that my session had expired though, so maybe log out and back in?

    Y'all gotta do something about the color layout. This current combination is way too bright and cartoon-ish.

    Agree with Rick... anyway to get the "old" look and feel back, or at least have some options to choose from? I notice we're no longer using vBulletin.

    Even the xenforo forums look and have better interaction than whatever this template we're using is... https://xenforo.com/community/

    New theme is a welcome improvement IMHO.

    I know 3pmi is working on some alternate theme choices. Hopefully everyone will find an option they like.
