    Beware: New forum software is coming.

    Beware.

    VerticalScope (the current owner of this site) is transitioning all of its forums to new software. It won't be long before MO is hit by this plague.

    It complicates navigation, has a cluttered layout, and loses quite a bit of functionality versus existing software.

    Beware.
    The end is nigh.
    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your rusted masses yearning to live again,
    The wretched refuse of your humid closet.
    Send me the partless, broken-stocked,
    The Marlins in need of new life...

    Got a link to such news?

    We have heard zip of such a notion.

    I like these vBulletin forums, some of the others out there are just awful.

    Every time the site goes through something like this we lose members who either can't make the new system work or just get frustrated and don't come back. I hope this time it's different but I'm not optimistic.

    I love the 24 hour campfire site. but I go on it less and less. they cram pop up adds down your throat every time you click to a new page. I hate adds and commercials! I mute every commercial on my tv. I usually record so I can fast forward. I hate them! I hope this site don't come to that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    I have never harvested an animal but I have KILLED QUITE A FEW !

    I would rather have a gun in my hand than a cop on the phone,,,,,,,,,

    Contact your VS administrator.
    It was surprise to the three other forums that I've seen "updated", as well.
    The primary motivations, according to VS, are the massive vBulletin security breech a couple years ago, and a "universal" layout that scales to all devices.

    Here's an example of the new look: https://www.stevesnovasite.com/
    In that case, the mods and original creator had only six days notice.

    Thanks for the link and explanation. So far, we mods haven't heard a peep regarding dumping vBulletin and hope we don't change.

    I'll bring it up to admin and VS to see if they plan on changing our community. Personally, the old adage, don't fix what isn't broken, comes to mind.
