We are Moving!

Dear Community Members,

Over the past year, there have been updates to your community environment that have introduced challenges in usability and performance. We sincerely apologize if you have been negatively impacted. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site. Once we started looking at how to address these issues, it became clear that we needed to determine how to fix the underlying problems.

We needed to improve user experience, site speed, and overall performance, all while providing a secure environment for you to interact with your community. For the past few months, we have been actively seeking a resolution to these issues.

We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community.

The new platform is designed for efficiency, stability, and to be user-friendly across all devices, including mobile. More time can be spent engaging, sharing, and contributing to your favorite community no matter where you are!

This is just the first stage of the new platform and we look forward to hearing your feedback as we make regular and timely improvements.

Thank you for all your support!

Dear Community Members,

We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that Roadglide.org will be migrated to our new platform on Thursday, December 12th. The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!

If for any reason there is a change of date, we will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.

We appreciate your support!

This was just getting discussed the other week, wondering when/if it would happen here as well. Please keep the black background. Don't make it so goofy to operate that people stop posting

On that note, please also keep the option available to use a light background. When I first signed up I didn't start posting for over a year because that dark background drives me nuts. My eyes didn't do well with it. Lol

Sorry Thermodyne. I see: "We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community."

I am relatively new to the forum, and so will be soft spoken. That said, this appears to me to be "fixing something that ain't broken" and trying to sell it to the population that this "fix" is for everyone's own good. What was broken and what specifically is being "fixed?" I remember no surveys about long term needs of the "community", or issues with performance. This "feels" like a financial decision. That all said, the decision has clearly been made with no input from the users. We shall see...... Maybe the search function will be improved? An old guy can only dream.
