We Are Moving!!

Dear DodgeTalk.com 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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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!

This seems to be happening all over...

Most of these systems destroy the 'experience' using a computer in favour of mobile phone usage, I hope this isn't so here.

I agree, we just went through this at CruzeTalk.com , still many issues to resolve, and we are losing experienced people fast.

Surely that won't change?

Just the software to make it all less readable...

The URL will not change, but not all of the shortcuts will, at least for the short term, you'll lose all the current emojis and some of the photos uploaded may or may not still be there unless they have fixed that, there will be a much more restricted picture count per thread as well as a restricted tag count. If you are able to go back and edit posts, remember that these restrictions will be enforced if you choose to continue to edit. So if you have a 20 picture post and you want to change one, you will now have to delete 11 of them to add that new one.

I have a thread with sixty or seventy posts with more than twenty photos in each...

I have to cut those posts?

You can't cut the posts and keep them in order.

You won't have to cut any posts. All posts and images that are hosted on the site will migrate over.

Well, if I have to I'll rebuild the thread...

I do hope some start reading it soon, I think it's interesting. That's a problem with this site, being divided into vehicle types a 'general' thread can't be somewhere everyone will see it.

This is the thread:

Let's just hope this goes better than the last "upgrade." It took me 4 years to come back to this site after I got locked out and many members never came back at all.

Hello all,

There has been a delay and we have bumped the migration date to TBD.

We will update you all once we have another date open on the migration schedule.
