I'm happy to announce we're going to be upgrading these message boards to a brand new piece of software. Don't worry, all of your posts and profile information and such will be saved. I plan on rolling out the upgrade sometime in the next day or so. During the upgrade, the forums will be temporarily closed while I make the switch.

I don't quite have an exact time frame yet so I'll go with the cable company famous line of "sometime between 9am and 9pm" :lol:

Going to migrate from phpbb to Invision Power Boards, if that means anything to you.

Yes, we are under the new message board.

There will be a number of forthcoming changes to tweak it to look a little bit more like it used to be but at the very least it is functioning correctly.

Please let me know of any errors/issues in this thread. Thanks!

Matt

So when I first logged back on, I was like, "Whoa!" Then I realized I had to physically log back in with username & password and was like, "Huh?" Then I read this message, and I was like, "Oh, now it makes all sense." So, how does Invision Power Boards work out for you as opposed to phpbb?

As a harsh critic and perpetual hater of progress... I must say... I like it. It will grow on me more as time goes by I am sure as well.

Great job oh fearless leader!

It's there. Look at the top of the page (near My controls on the right side) and you will see a link that says "View new posts"
