We're just exporting some info to the new site, part of it being current profile pictures. I'll alert you all as we go forward, chances are there may be a few hours of downtime over he coming week. We'll try and do it at quiet times.

Cheers

Whilst I'm happy to take all the credit, it's Charic who is doing all the hard work... he's the one to blame when it slows down, too :)

Of course, when the new site launches the cry will go up:

"OMFG it's just awful who chose that layout how do I subscribe to topics my old posts have been lost why can't I search for basses by colour in the marketplace I really used to like the old site this new one makes my eyes hurt the font is too small / big why do I have to pay to advertise where does the money go I expect Ped and Kiwi are rolling in it will they ever lift the stupid Rickenbacker ban it is with not inconsiderable regret that I shall be moving across to Talkbass it's all such a pain in the f**king arse and so unnecessary".

And that's just me :)

Believe me we wouldn't do a thing to the site if we didn't have to. Unfortunately the older software gets left behind and is vulnerable to issues as it gets older (aren't we all) and the company who make it also want to sell you the latest and greatest version. Normally I worry that the new version will be a pain but the new BC looks fantastic, it's a massive leap forward in usability and makes this place feel like a right shithole. In fact I'm heading there now and keeping it all to myself.

It's all because of Brexit, I expect. :D

I have to say thanks also.

If not for the encouragement of those here I'd never have taken my bass out of the house again. I've never known an Internet forum like it.

Well done all concerned.

Profile Pics and the like are across, atleast from an old backup :) Old posts are across too but due to a change in the way the software formats things it's left it a bit messy.

The new software is great though, I'm just ironing out some oddities!

You should try TabChat, the forum for smokers of vintage and contemporary cigarettes. Sample topics:

* Vintage vs Re-Issue Embassies
* What's the best humidor for 1960's Camels
* Newb question: Afton Sweet Leaf - enough heft?
* Relic-ing packets is just stupid

Looking forward to the new forum.....I'll probably reminisce about the old one though...

I value everybody's opinion...especially when it's the same as mine

Ooops! I went into FagChat by mistake. Now I need to go and lie down in a darkened room for a bit.
