Major Discussion Board Forum Software Upgrade/Update Coming Soon!!


Matthew Chan:
Just a quick heads-up.

I am currently testing and working out the kinks of a major new update/upgrade of our discussion forum software. This has been in the back of my mind for sometime but I was unable to find something I felt comfortable with that was inexpensive, reliable, stable, well-supported, and easy-to-use until now. I also wanted to preserve all the large message database that have been built up over the last 2.5 years.

I think I found a nice solution which will allow all of us to do more than what we are doing now which is to simply post messages. There are several bells and whistles I am looking to add. I am not prepared to announce these just yet. It will likely get rolled out gradually over time.

I will be spending the rest of this week testing the new software and working out the kinks. If all goes well, I anticipate the conversion to happen this weekend. If I make good progress, I may convert earlier.

I am not too keen in making major changes especially with a large, well-established community like the one we have now. It can be risky because if things don't work right or people don't like it, I could have a riot on my hands. :-) But trust me when I say this, I wouldn't be volunteering more of my time to do this if I didn't really think it was important for the long term.

Stay tuned and get ready for some big changes and excitement!
