The beta testing has gone very well so far. Members seem happy with the new forum software and are getting very active during the beta test. The front end of the forum is pretty much ready to go. We have some more small things to add, but it's time to reveal it to anyone who would like to see it.

https://forums.footballsfuture.com

You still need a beta invite to post, so don't try to login to the forum if you haven't received a beta invite. If you want to login before the transition, please sign up for the beta.

MAKE SURE THE EMAIL IN YOUR PROFILE IS ONE YOU STILL USE
You will be locked out of the forum after the transition if your email is invalid.

That's fantastic! Maybe, just maybe, that'll bring back all the old posters...and some new ones as well. I actually long for the days of the reasoned arguments/banter with more people. Laughing

And the mobile capability will add a great dimension.

No doubt. Webby has put a ton of work into this. I know most members don't see what goes on behind the scenes, but a lot of work goes into this.

should be a welcomed change, especially with mobile capabilities. I've found myself rarely using my personal computer these days.

so i do have a question about once the full transition takes place and we're all on the new platform.

what happens to all the existing threads, are they archived over or do we start everything new again?

the current forum is going to be kept as an archive, but current threads are not going to be brought over.

great news!

Hopefully that sw and my work computer get along better.

I don't know about bringing back some of the past, it is only partly the sw. The site is much more serious now, imo.

so how many of us are able to be in the new forum right now?

i know the new one will supercede this one before the season starts, but what is webby looking for in the beta testing period?

seems like a lot of guys are getting left out during the transition.

I'm not sure what the timeline is for sending out the mass invitations and transferring all accounts over, but everyone who is active here should 'sign up' for the beta. Hopefully everyone who puts their name in for the beta will get invited very quickly. We want to get as much good content on the new forum before the switch.

oh, i thought maybe you had something to do with which Viking forum members got accepted in to beta class.

because i was notified i had been "enrolled" when i didn't even request it. i guess i'm special!
