    Ok, I'm always game for change but I'm going to be honest I always like the set up this forum provided. There is times I wondered were topics went...but I didn't expect the entire sit would change.
    I'm sure I'll adjust but I must say it's weird!

    Bidgz,

    Thanks for the feedback. To be honest, Phpbb (The software it was on) is not capable of holding the user base we have. It also doesnt give you the customization a forum the size of ours needs.

    To help ease the pain, we will be launching a new giveaway sponsored by DJI to win a Phantom 2 tomorrow. They wanted to wish us a happy launch.

    Am I overlooking a "key" for threads I've posted within?

    Just scroll over your name in the top right and click "Your content"

    All of those are in the "General Forums" on the main page. The threads from the older site will still link to here if you use the same link.

    I am just as confused! I had to search to even find away to post.

    What we had, worked. Why mess with it?

    As you may remember, there was a server crash that caused thousands of posts to be deleted and a day without access. Phpbb is not meant for a forum of our size. This platform allows more customization and features. Trust me, give it 1 week and you will never look back. Every day that I log onto this new site (We have been developing it for weeks) I like it a little more.
