Information  Forum Upgrade - It's finally happening!
Post: #1
This is just a quick note. Over the next few weeks, the team plans on finally updating the forums to more modern, open source software that will play nice with current browsers and will connect with plugins that will allow for better mobile browsing. At the moment, the plan is for internal testing to take place on the weekend of March 3rd and full conversion to take place on the weekend of March 10th.

We'll attempt to keep everyone updated with our progress in this thread (until we no longer can). When the forums go down, keep an eye on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for further updates.

With luck, the downtime during the switch will be brief, and the forum after the switch will be much more powerful. Thanks to all of you who have been pushing for this update. It's been a long time coming.

Update: I've also closed this thread, so we can keep it clear for updates. Feel free to discuss here.

At the moment, we're leaning towards using MyBB. The head of the project, Da-anda believes that will be the easiest conversion and will have all the necessary software to make things like tapatalk and regular mobile viewing work well.

Almost all users can't see. But a test forum has now been set up.
