    Hi all,

    It's no secret, but in case you have heard it mentioned - yes, the forum is getting ready for a make-over.

    We have been testing newer - more robust software on a test site and we are almost ready for the export/import phase. This will probably be happening early next week sometime.

    The software is amazing. Those who use your phones to access the site will be thanking me. The mobile version is awesome. And the desk top version is fast - it has pretty much the same look and feel, and it is more responsive. The CAG members have been checking it out for a little over a week, and so far no one has mutinied. :D

    Anyway - some caveats:

    The "Thanks". We are having problems importing the thanking system. The new forum has a thanks system in place, but does not display the older ones in the forum posts. So we may have to ditch that and start afresh. :(

    There are newer "Thanks" plugins for the new forum, it just won't be able to calculate the ones you have already been given. It has imported the likes, so you will have those to admire. :D

    Social Groups or the Meister Clubs: We may have to ditch these as well. The software is just not importing these correctly. We can keep a copy of them and perhaps import them at a later date, but not that many people are using them, and this doesn't justify holding off on the relaunch. Sorry for those of you who have been using the Meister Clubs.

    Blogs: These aren't porting over very well either. So they will have to be loaded up at a latter time. Perhaps it could be done on the Word Press sections. We will see.

    Who has read a thread: This works fine, but it hasn't imported the historical "reads". Sorry 'bout that.

    When the export/import of the forum commences, it is going to take some time (it takes 5 hours for the PMs alone), so the forum will be down, but in a "read only" mode. You will be able to peruse the posts/threads etc.; you just won't be able to do anything that will change the data base.

    So watch this space for more info. :D

    Hey Bryan,

    I am new to this community and for sure I am not 100% used with how this forum works yet. -- This means I will get used more easily with the new one. Looking forward for the change !
    And having a "Thanks" would be nice, yes (as far I can see this "Thanks" button is not available for me in this version). Hopefully the new verion of the forum will bring me a "Thanks!" button too. :)

    All the Best,
    Denis

    Just a heads up that this will probably be happening in the wee hours tonight. The forum will be read only, and this will probably go on until late tomorrow morning if all goes well.

    LOL - after 24 hours, one crash, some scripting errors, and two coders with about 2 hours of sleep in two days, we've rescheduled for next week. :D

    I've spent the past 24 hours working on the "new" forum, and the more I work with it, the more I love it. It's going to be amazing once it is up and running. You'll see. :D
