Hey, the new board is now live at http://www.specmiata.com/forum/ so if you're here you will probably be lonely.

Did someone hijack this place? What gives?

I had no idea the board upgrade would include a new URL, and since people are still posting on the old board I'm probably not the only one.

Does the new board not have a "Today's Active Topics" function? I went over there, logged in, and didn't see anything like that. That was a key feature that I think a lot of folks will miss if it's truly not there in the new version.

Some of the forums on the new board seem to be a bit honked, too, but maybe that's just because the archived messages import (or whatever) isn't finished yet? Is it?

After looking over the new board and finding that several of the expected features didn't work correctly, it looks like we're going to revert back to this board and try again later (with much much more testing). My apologies to everyone who saw the new board this morning -- it was certainly less than you deserve, and I take full responsibility for that.

Thanks Jim. I volunteer to do any beta testing you'd like next time around! [Smile]

I tried a similar experiment a few years ago Jim. It went over just about the same way [Smile]

Jim, thanks for the "experience". I got to post in the new blue board, but it is not visible in the "old" yellow one.

I was completely unaware that there was a transition coming.

It was confusing as I saw the yellow board, then the blue board, then the yellow board, then the blue again, etc etc.

Yellow for now.

I thought there might have been some overnight cross-breeding with "44Cup" or "Bimmerforums". Frightening, indeed!
