Changes to the Community Forums

Postby Adz.M » Mon Dec 26, 2016 6:24 pm

Greetings all.

As you can see, It's been decided today that we have gone back to using phpbb for this forum - the latest version even.

Firstly, if you joined the Community Forums sometime from January 2007 onwards, you DO NOT NEED TO RE-REGISTER.
Your account and login details should all be safe.
Sadly though, it does mean that anyone who uploaded their own Avatars to the forum will need to reupload them again.

Also, you can now add some new details to your forum profile. - Like your Facebook page name, your Twitter username and your YouTube username.

Any more updates to the new forum may be likely in the coming days.

If you have any questions, suggestions, concerns or having any problems with the new forum, then please feel free to reply in this thread and we will get back to you as soon as we can. :)

Or if your having difficulties Registering or Logging In, you can contact us via Social Media.

Over and out. :)

Down to costs of upgrading. The version of vbulletin that were running with was over 10 years old and they no longer fully supported. Phpbb is free, and vbulletin costs a lot of ££££
