I know I’m very great full for all you do Dave and I’m sure everyone else feels the same. Good luck on new launch

As long as the primary web address doesn't change I'm sure we'll figure it out! I still use the normal site on my mobile device...:biggrin

Finally got this done. Probably tomorrow. Been messing around with a clone of the site as is and I really dig it, very clean. Kiss the old vB goodbye.

That’s good news, the old V-Bulletin platform is as outdated as the 8086 processor.

My punch card reader never worked with an 8086....

The Race is Long..

Normally, I would not warn people, but Ford GT Forum is being overhauled. vBulletin is old, and there are going to be at least 3 more years of production of this car. It's time. The missile has already been launched and there is no turning back.

The interface is going to change, though not radically.

Things that should improve:

- Mobile functionality (no more Tapatalk necessary). About 35% of all traffic here is from a mobile device
- Integration with popular social media (FB, IG, YouTube) that should make the site more useful
- Improved content discovery
- Personal account customization
- General slickness of appearance, including the ability to tailor the site to your display preferences
- Search (still not going to beat Google)
- Better image handling, since pretty much all 3rd party image hosting is going down the drain
- Improved load times

Etc, etc.

I'm not going to lie; some stuff is probably going to get broken. I will do my best to get everything sorted and functional before it goes live and overtakes the old site, and I promise to put together some tutorials on useful changes.

Good luck everyone. I would say that there's no worse than a 50/50 chance the site will be erased permanently!
Looking forward to the Next Generation.

I programmed assembly language for the 8086. About 300 years ago.

Gimme a couple days to sort everything. I happen to be monstrously ill today just in time for this. There are also some tasks currently rebuilding stuff so there may be some funkiness.

I like this I think. Hope you get to feeling better.
