We are Moving!

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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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 Stromtrooper.com will be migrated to our new platform on Friday, December 13th. 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!

If for any reason there is a change of date, 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!

Thanks for the update and the dedication towards making this forum even better, although I am a little concerned about the migration on "Friday the 13th".....just kidding.

It was the only date available.

Okay now, who is going to be the first crank to complain that the new is not like the old?

On Black Friday? Hmmm........ That's courage.
Best wishes to admin for a smooth and fault free transfer. Can you give us any idea of what time it will commence and how many hours you expect the move to take?

How come you are working on a motorcycle website on Friday the 13th? I thought you are all going to be in Port Dover?

I'll be the first to complain about the change. Most changes I've seen always include stuff that some computer wiz thinks is just nifty but seems useless to the user.
Perhaps being a Luddite is a curse? Like the Wee Strom, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I imagine it will look like tundratalk.net. They upgraded a few weeks ago.

I hope it's better than the transfer of RangeRovers.net where all the many, many pages of technical articles we wrote have disappeared.
