Hi.

We will be doing a server switch sometime this weekend, so the site may be down, inaccessable, or just plain weird for a day or two.

I’m not sure how long it will take for chiefdelphi.com to point to our new host. Hopefully not too long.

Also, when the site comes back on, there will be new forums. (vBulletin.com style) So, come back, sign up, and post like you’ve always have.

Thanks,
Brandon

I’m 85% sure it will work. We’ll see once its transferred, eh?

Should be switched over by next week, which means new forums.

So… don’t get too surprised when its a total different setup. You’ll all need new accounts, but its worth it. There are alot of new features & advantages to this new system.

It will take a little bit to get used to, and may seem intimidating at first, but I think it will all work out for the better in the end…

Brandon is not kidding about the new setup. He is nice enough to show me what it looks like, and I explored around for about half an hour…

All I can say is “WOW!!!”

There are so many new features that’s going to change the meaning of posting on the forum… There will be much more control over how a discussion will run… There will be so much more organized discussion going on at all time… Even reading the forum will be a completely new experience…

Well, I am going to let Brandon show it to you when appropiate…

However, it will take some time for new people to get used to it. I am not sure how it will encourage new comers to take advantage of the great system, but we will see how everything will works out. I am sure once the learning is over, the new website is going to be more popular that ever!

Oh yeah, guess who’s the second person to register for the site~? :wink:

…Brandon has yet again outdone himself, everything has a place (even random posts), and it’ll be easier to see where the new posts are & such…but I have to admit, it is a totally new setup, and it will take some adjusting, but Im sure it’ll go smoothly :wink:

So, Brandon, how come you let Ken sign up but not me? :wink:
