Dear Ram1500diesel 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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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 Ram1500diesel.com will be migrated to our new platform on Friday, September 6th. 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!

Thanks for your efforts.
I'm sure the new experience will be an upgrade.
For what it's worth, I've had no issues with this platform.
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Would like a more aggressive notification of PM's. I just never see when I get one and they sit for a while.

Thanks for making the site better.

6 day old thread and I missed it all together , Thanks Captain for posting and bringing it back at top in the " what's new " list .
..
Oh Oh , the stress ,
years ago my motorcycle site went thru a similar transition ,
most of the threads were lost , most of the members never came back after that ,
very slow recovery , hoping for a smooth transition here .
..
I can see the future posts coming that day that will report the site "bugging ",
I copied the title of this thread , so I can post a link to it , explaining to be patient during " metamorphosis ".

Heh? My brain does not follow all those relevant directions. I will try, appreciate the directions. To me those directions are "trying".

*** Did it successfully. Then discovered that it WAS set for email notifications. If I get them my take is I miss them. Oh well. Much to do as I am leaving town for hunting camp property work. Will deal with this and other things next week.

Hello all,

There were some additional complications with the migration of the community and we have rolled the site back until we can investigate further.

We have pushed the date back to TBD for now and will announce once we know more.
