    So as most of you know, FFS is now on a new forum software called XenForo. FFS started on vBulletin years ago and it worked out well. The version the site was on was a old version of vBulletin. The company that creates vBulletin is on version 5.x and we were running 3.8.x. They had an End of Life on that version 4 or 5 years ago. It was out dated. The only option I had was to upgrade to vBulletin 4 or 5 and I wasn't going to do that, so I decided to convert it over to XenoForo.

    It will take some getting used to, but I think once you give it sometime, you will learn to like it. I didn't like it either when they first came out with it, but it also grew on me.

    I'm more then happy to hear what you guys/gals think and if there is another you have concerns with. There are things that still may need some tweaking, but I want to hear what you all think. Post about it in this thread.

    It is a little awkward right now for me, but I like the overall format personally. Just have to get used to it.

    It'll take some getting used to, but it'll be worth it if we get more people visiting and joining up

    Quoting and mentioning members helps get emails out to them. That's another way to get some old members back as it worked for me when I did it for a few days/weeks. Keep doing that when you reply to threads/posts. Quote or mention.

    like everyone else said, going to take some time to get used to. ive already found some new buttons useful. I like the "todays post" and "new post" buttons at the top.

    Looks good so far but I'd agree with the rest.
