    In about 7-10 days, we'll be peforming a forum software upgrade from Xenforo v1 to Xenforo v2x.

    Some of the more notable improvements will be:

    1. Overall improved mobile experience
    2. Alerts indicator in the favicon (so you see it in the browser tab)
    3. Better navigating images in posts
    4. Ability to embed into posts the following: Facebook posts, Tweets, Instagram photos, Reddit posts and comments, Spotify and Soundcloud tracks, albums and playlists and a whole host of others.

    Plus a whole slew of other visual and functional improvements.

    For those inclined & want to learn more:
    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/whats-new-in-xenforo-2-0.133426/

    During the upgrade, we'll be closing the forum for 4-6 hours.

    Exact date and time TBD, but we're trying to plan it for a time/day that has lower activity levels.

    We'll use this thread to track any issues / questions related to the upgrade.

    Stay tuned for more info.

    I’ve never been to a platform upgrade. What is the appropriate attire? I’m thinking crisp khakis, LHS, a white OCBD, orange and navy repp tie, and a seersucker jacket.

    Bon chance!

    I suppose stretched sweater with deer, jeans and red eyes would be the perfect fit :)

    . It isn’t showing the emoji I selected. It reflects that I just can’t.
