  • Dear Community Members,

    Updated 9/29/20 - Upgrades have been pushed until 10/7/20

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change.

    What’s next?
    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 10/7/2020! The whole transition should take 30-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

        What sig build link?

        The 2000th time worked.

        Use the message link JB gave - It works with no jumping. I don't understand what you mean by not being able to add a link. It's just like a forum post using the Advanced Editor - The chain link right side on the second row.

        We get tired of attitudes, too.

              The Message System has nothing to do with your profile. That's why it's called a Message System.

                  kcassells you as well

                  Does the link I posted take you to your PMs?

                  If so, can you read them w no jumping/blinking?

                  Thats 1 seperate problem from profile editting, and the link I posted has worked for everybody else who's tried it.

                  There are a small handful of members that are somehow caught in limbo. IIRC, theres 3 or 4, you among them. I think alldodge may have been affected similarly or possibly had a completely different problem.

                  Prior to the current admin, there was an attempt to correct the problem, which was unsuccessful. That admin is no longer w iboats.

                  Given the current state of the vB software, the few of you affected unfortunately makes it a fairly low priority.

                  all I can suggest is take a break for a day or 2, then logout if you're auto-logged in. Log in again and go to the link I posted. Try to send me a PM. When you do, @ notify me here that you have.

                  If PMs dont go thru, what happens on your end? Nothing?


                  As for editting your profile and/or signature block, stick a pin in it and revisit it in @60-90days, something may change by then.....

                      You can add me to the list of people't having problems, I can't update my info either, the screen just constantly flicks up and down.

                          When I go into edit my profile and change the info on my boat type, it all seems to work fine until i press "accept", or whatever the word is, and then the screen starts to jump around and my changes don't go into effect.
