***Edit: New forums are installed. Please navigate to http://smallboatbassclub.net/forum/ and create a new account. I will be "redesigning" the aesthetics ASAP***


Guys,

I attempted a forum upgrade this week and the host has me blocked from making the changes but is sorting out the details to open it up.

All the better as that will let me explain what may (or may not) happen with the update. When I update the forum I'm going to do everything in my power to do a true "update" which will preserve all of the info/users/avatars/posts that we currently have, but just update to the newer version.

However since we are functioning on a version of phpBB forums that is almost 10 years old, the update may not be that smooth. If a "true update" cannot be completed, what I am going to do is leave this forum in it's current location to serve as a reference and archive for the older information.

Should that outcome materialize I will create an entire new forum which will likely be held at http://smallboatbassclub.net/forum/ This means that on that particular page everyone will need to recreate a forum account to continue posting, and this forum will be locked to new posts/users.

I would cordially ask on behalf of everyone and their little sister that when you create a new forum account that you include some sort of indication of who you actually are to help make things smoother for TD/CD/Pres etc. I'll look into ways to display a username plus a real name for reference.

I have locked all topics from new posting here on the old forum.
Will has the new forum on line. You can access it from the SBBC home page " New Forum" tab. You will need to register to post.
The old forum will stay available as view only for 45 days.. June 30 we will dump it.. If you find any old info on old form that should be moved over to new forum you should be able to preform a cut at old and do a paste to new under appropriate topic .. let us know if you need assistance,,
