    Hi All...

    There will be some work carried out to the forum over the next month, so apologies beforehand for any inconvenience. We will try our best to keep the disruption to a minimum. The work will result - hopefully - in a much improved site.

    Some of the data on the forum that is associated with additional software layered on the forum platform will be lost - for example Trader Feedbacks.

    Unfortunately this is unavoidable due to the limitations of the current software, hence why we are moving to another software package that will allow the forum to scale beyond its current limits.

    Some of the features that may be impacted are:

    Seasonal Snow Feature
    Member Search
    Section Layout
    Post order within a thread
    Sidebar Positions
    Weekly Newsletter (via email)
    Trader feedback
    Vendor ads (most of you will probably think that a positive)
    Blogs Section (was never used anyway)
    Members Map

    We will be able to rebuild most of these, but there will be some features permanently lost that will have to be replaced. These features are provided by 3rd party software that has been added on over the past 5 years and not all of these are supported by the new platform we are migrating to. There are many positives to the changes that will become quickly apparent!

    Is there no way members map could be saved?
    I find this invaluable when considering purchasing and just in general a good tool to use.

    I have just checked and the Members Map is available for the new version of the platform and will reappear again.
