IMPORTANT CHANGE COMING SOON
« on: January 23, 2018, 10:54:05 AM »

I got several messages regarding this, so here it goes.


GUESTS WILL BE ABLE TO SEARCH AND LOOK AT OUR FORUM.


This will potentially increase membership, etc.


This will happy by TOMORROW MORNING.




So if you are sensitive to your posts being seen by the general public... please remove them now or let me know and I can move them.


Another thought was to have a separate board section viewable by ONLY MEMBERS... let me know... The site is still FREE...

I belong to another forum with a closed section which I think is a good idea. I think on FFR the classified section is not viewable if you are not logged in either. Less guys registering to post stuff for sale (dump and run members).

Also about to purge members. If you haven't been active in the last 365 days, I'm deleting them out. They are taking up space, etc.

Lots of changes coming soon.

You could potentially deal with by implementing a mandatory minimum post count to list something for sale.

One subforum on FFR is not viewable until you hit 25 posts.

I'm liking the ideas. Keep them coming.

I'm open to making some changes! there are things that I would like to keep and the certain feel and vibe that we get from this place.

I agree that a members only section is a good idea.  Give some incentive to join up.

So Forum Software is definitely Changing soon as well as our servers! We were on bluehost which has a huge mess of issues with logging, system downtime, and tech support sucks. So we are going to different Server. our website shouldn't change at all.

I will do all I can to migrate everything over cleanly, because there are a lot of forum stuff I don't want to lose. I made that clear to the two people trying to help me out (for free, so it's going slowly.) If I get a hint of losing data, I will backup everything ASAP.
