  • 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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses.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 We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software.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.

      If you don't have Chrome on your computer, don't put it on. If you already have it, don't remove it! Just leave it there, and start using another browser...

      So, why I say this? Because Chrome has a very nasty little bit of code in the uninstaller. When you attempt to remove it (using the package uninstaller) it deletes all the MS Office file associations. I had it happen on 2 different computers, so it wasn't a glitch. It's like Chrome giving you the finger on its way out the door. Nasty!. Rebuilding all those file associations again is a pain in the proverbial...

      So, I NEVER will install Chrome on anything I use or an responsible for maintaining. And if it's already there, the desktop shortcut gets deleted, the shortcuts in the program menu lists also gets deleted,the bookmarks and history get deleted, and the program just quietly dies of old age.

      Chris....

        Just to help clear up some of the confusion in this thread, Robert is asking about another boating website that talks about Yamaha Outboard only type issues forum put up by an iboats store competitor named Boats . net which is called Yamaha Outboard Forum , https://www.yamahaoutboardparts.com/ ... Not iboats Yamaha & Suzuki Outboards

        And it looks like they were down for about 2 weeks as Robert found out today as is happy once again ,,,what happened to the web site the last 2 weeks

        The links given here may or may not work here as boats . net is usually *** out here.

        I'll added that some of the old members from here (like rodbolt17 and a few others) that drifted over there that post there are missed here as well.

        It's okay robert graham , we all have other forums we like to frequent as well as iboats & we're glad you're here too.

          You mean I've been advising how to fix another forum. I don't get paid enough to fix this forum let alone another one.

          Thanks for being clear when multiple members keep saying OUR Yammie forum is working just fine and you didn't correct our misguided attempt to help you.

          Thanks for clearing up the mystery, FT. I moved this thread again because OUR Yamaha forum works fine.
