    Hi all!

    In the coming days we're going to be changing the software we use to power these forums.

    There are a few reasons but mainly the software we have now does some things in a different way to other software, private messaging etc. and a lot of people are quite uncomfortable with it. We were hoping that over time the software would develop but it really hasn't.

    The software we're going back to is older but a little more "normal" and I'm sure when you see it, you'll find it very familiar.

    Don't worry though! We'll put full instructions in here on how to swap over. You'll have to setup a new password and bookmark a new page but that should be all.

    When the change over happens, we'll lock out any new posts on this forums whilst we install the other software and open that up. We're hoping to do all that this weekend.

    We really really do love having you all here and don't want to lose anyone along the way, so, please keep an eye on this post and we'll followup with updates.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know :)

    The Admin team

    If having a moving buddy means all this hard work, I think I'll just skedaddle over on my lonesome. I don't have a lot to carry and it's time for a spring clean anyway.
