7/22 Update - 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, your current password will not work. 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 incorrect in your profile.

Original Announcement
I will be updating the forum to a brand new modern software platform before the NFL season starts. The new forum will have a modern look with a responsive mobile design that automatically adjusts to work great on any device and includes a host of exciting new features:

- Improved posting features with automatic embedding of links from services like twitter and youtube.
- An extensive notification system that members can customize to their needs.
- Ignore and like features so you can ignore members you donít want to see and like high-quality posts.
- Detailed profile pages with much more customization and informtaion.
- @member mentions to address specific members in a given topic.
- Improved quoting features so no more mess of quote trees.
- Improved search, private messaging, and much more.

FAQ:

When will the forum transition over to the new software platform?
We are currently in the alpha stages of testing the platform. We are moving to beta testing this week. If the beta test goes well the transition should happen in about a month. The goal is to have everything complete before the NFL season starts.

What do I need to do to get ready for the transition?
Update your profile with a current email address. When the transition happens youíll receive an email to the address in your profile with your temporary password for the new forum platform. You can then setup your account on the new forum platform. Your current password will not work on the new forum.

How can I help beta test the new forum?

I enjoy the current forum. What if I donít want to learn a bunch of new features?
Donít worry. All the new features are optional. You can use them all or just the basic posting features. The basic features and structure of the new forum are very similar to this forum. Youíll be comfortable with it in no time at all. Our focus is great football talk and that isnít going to change.

So ummm...will the new forum have higher space limits for avatars? Perhaps animated ones can be allowed? Just a thought.

*Went into this.

Mods are currently Alpha testing, and it's so much better. Mobile friendly, and very easy to post content from other websites/twitter/etc.

Are there any websites that use this format so we can see what it looks like?

Question - Will our post counts carry over? I don't really care, just more curious than anything.

The software platform is used by other forums, but it's so customizable that it wouldn't have the exact features the new FF will. If I link to another forum using it would just cause confusion. Also, don't want members linking to other forums.

Just sign up for the beta if you want to check it out.
