All, we are prepping for an upgrade to the forum. This upgrade *should* occur the evening of 8/7, time not exactly sure at this point.

In preparation, I've temporarily disabled registration for new members. Don't worry, after we are back up registration will be open again, so if you're new, just sit tight.

Thanks for bearing with us and keep your fingers crossed this goes smoothly. :D

To add a bit of background and depth to what Venture wrote, he is undertaking the same move for this forum that ADV just went through. Rather than staying with Simple Machines software, YST is moving to Xenforo, so the look will be very similar to ADV.

The reason for this email is for folks to be aware. . .

TOMORROW there may be some issues with links and such as the forum moves over. For example tomorrow how you see this forum may change background colors. There will continue to be a link at the bottom of the pages to change display preferences. There may be some other issues which we will need to address in the back rooms.

The change should be worth it because like happened with ADV, some of the things people have asked for should happen and the forum should run more smoothly.

Kudos to Chirs/Venture for doing this. His sign-off last night at 2:30am was that he'd be back at it this morning.
