Thought I would give everyone here a heads up!

This weekend we're going to be upgrading our forum software to the latest version, Xenforo 2. The boards will be unavailable starting on Saturday at 3 pm eastern. We anticipate they will be back online Saturday night if there are no technical issues with the transfer. Once the forums are back online, the design team will be working on them, so they may not look like "our forums" right away. While we are upgrading the software, this new version does have some major differences - mainly that it is designed with a priority on mobile devices. There are also many new features with this version of Xenforo, including expanded emojii options, enhanced editing features and better integration with social media among them.

While we don't expect any major downtime, with any migration to a new platform, things can happen - so we ask for your patience and understanding as we undergo this enhancement.

    Additional note:

    The "boards closed" message will be used for updates if there are any issues with the changes.

    Just an update. Crisis was averted. My mother in law took me to lunch, so I was not required to speak to my family during the day. Now the boards are back, so I can go back to ignoring everyone as usual. I think I really am up for Mother of the Year this time around! :rotfl2:In other news, the boards look really good!!! Great job!

    Love what I've seen so far - definitely easier to read for a blind ole bat like me, and I like the "controls" at the top of this typing box. Haven't looked around a lot yet, but wanted to say "Thank you, bravo, great job" to all involved in the transition. I'm sure it was a MAJOR undertaking!!
