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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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 Snowplowforums.com will be migrated to our new platform on Friday, November 15th. 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!

When you say we are moving, are you creating a whole new site, new name and all, or re vamping up this one.

We'll be changing the software that we use here, so the layout and format will get some significant changes, but all site information will remain intact, as will the site URL

Is this an attempt to revitalize this places lack luster membership and usage or do you actually believe this place is smoking hot when it comes membership?

with the new platform, we're hoping to attract more people in hopes of having them join as well. To that, we're working with google analytics to keep the site at the top of searches so that we'll have more visibility.

I am super surprised and refreshed by your honesty... let’s hope so... I am tired of being one of the only few to post here regularly... I need some more interaction that is positive.

If you want this place to go forward, the adds from lets say the far east need to hit the circular files, if you no what I mean.
