Dear Community Members,

Over the past few years we have been working to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance on this platform. We've worked to develop a new, faster site that performs well across all devices, allows easily sharing knowledge on a secure platform, and makes finding relevant and interesting content more simple.

We are implementing a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and that allows us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. The technology we use to host our communities is subject to continuous innovation, and by creating an environment that can be better controlled and maintained, we can push more frequent updates and improvements to the platform.

Preparations We're Making

The next step in this process is to prepare the site for migration to a new platform. You may notice some general maintenance tasks to ensure that there is no outdated or obsolete data that could conflict with the new platform structure or new features added to the site.

We will also be going through the site and documenting any links/articles and stand-alone content that may not migrate. For content that is still relevant but cannot be migrated in its current form, we will be placing that information into threads or archiving it. Rest assured, that even if data is not visible after migration, it is all backed up for consideration after migration. If there is a specific area that you are concerned about, please let us know.

What's Next?

I bet you're thinking, "What does this mean for me and the community?" It does mean change, but moving to a new, more stable platform will help solve a large majority of the issues that this site may have been experiencing. We have reviewed reported issues, site statistics, traffic data, and user feedback to help us prioritize the changes and improvements. With the new platform, page speed will be much faster, uploading an image or video will be easier and streamlined, and user privacy and site security are much improved within the newer system.

When will this be happening? You may already start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration over the coming year. While we can't promise that migration will occur within a given time frame as of yet, due to some of the challenges of preparation and workflow being tough to predict, know that we are working to make this happen for the community. However if we can get this platform updated sooner, we will make every effort to update in a timely manner.

What Can You Do To Be Prepared

  • Make sure your email address is up to date in your account.
  • If you don't remember your password, now would be a good time to reset it. Save the information.
  • The link that displays all your attachments on the site will not be available, but all attachments will still be in your posts. It might be worth taking the time to browse through the attachment list (if applicable) to see if you want to add anything from there to your albums for easy access later.

Thank you for your attention and we hope to build a better home for this community to thrive.

- Your Community Management Team.

Admin, as the title suggest, "evaluation" I'm thinking we can give you some feedback on how this new platform is working? Sort of an evaluation of current, "Hows this working"? I think a few of the mods would be ready to provide a timely evaluation,,,,

I imagine as with most new things in life it will take some time to get use to the new format. I just made my first post and I can tell immediately I miss the old emojis. The new ones I will probably never use. The little arc welder, the guy crawling under the tractor and especially little trink will be miss by myself.

Keep the Peace
