Dear Community Members,

Over the past year, there have been updates to your community environment that have introduced challenges in usability and performance. We sincerely apologize if you have been negatively impacted. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site. Once we started looking at how to address these issues, it became clear that we needed to determine how to fix the underlying problems.

We needed to improve user experience, site speed, and overall performance, all while providing a secure environment for you to interact with your community. For the past few months, we have been actively seeking a resolution to these issues.

We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community.

The new platform is designed for efficiency, stability, and to be user-friendly across all devices, including mobile. More time can be spent engaging, sharing, and contributing to your favorite community no matter where you are!

This is just the first stage of the new platform and we look forward to hearing your feedback as we make regular and timely improvements.

Thank you for all your support!

Dear Community Members,

We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that Volusiariders.com will be migrated to our new platform. The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!

We will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.

We appreciate your support!

Yuppers! Not a fan of their site. But it is super easy to dump a picture on the forums. No need for third party products.

Damn Whipper Snappers, I remember when I was a lad and we had a forum we were all sitting around the yard smoking stolen cigarettes and chugging our parents booze. :smile2:

If they have any brains they will not migrate 800 plus pages from the swap meet, some as old as 2003!!!. Probably half of the folks that posted on swap meet are dead by now!!

To be honest, I really hated xenforo too. The early versions where not user friendly, especially for admins. This is a proprietary version of the software that we have been shaping. Its a short learning curve but we all have loads of documentation on how it all works and how to teach everyone how it works. It will take little time to get used to and will format to fit any device you use.

The only thing that is constant is change. You just have to get used to it or decide to chuck it all and live on a dessert island....Wait a minute, that's not a bad idea!

The Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club is brutally old and works the same as the old Volusia Riders forum did before the hand off. I wish they would do a hand off themselves but they have the same attitude as many here did at the time.
