Here We Go - Ready or Not! Another Change :(

Wed Jun 28, 2017 8:05 am

Iris and I had very little time to look this over let alone warn you! I don't like it, She doesn't like it - a lot of folks from other forums complained. Bottom line - we don't have a choice! This is the email I received this morning:

Dear Forum Admin,

Per the earlier announcement, we are transitioning FreeForums.org to an updated platform on Tapatalk Groups. Many of you have participated in the Beta testing of the new platform. We received tons of great feedback and made many updates to address many of the issues raised during the Beta testing. And we will continue to make improvements and enhancements to Tapatalk Groups platform.

In the next 7 days, we'll roll out the production migration of your site to Tapatalk Groups. If you find any data or formatting issues on the preview board and would like to postpone the migration, please reply to this email stating the issues. The migration will not change your site URL. There will be a few of hours of downtime while we move to the new platform, and the moves are planned for late night and early morning to minimize the impact to you and your members.

After the migration, you should login to your Admin Control Panel to update your site logo, banners, and other customization.

Enjoy the new ride with Tapatalk Groups!

Regards,

FreeForums.org Support Team

What a pain in the patootee!! I wish forum hosts would leave well enough alone. I sure hope there isn't any changeover problems. Do you think we'll all have to sign up again or will it carry over our user info? I wonder how many customers they will lose because of this. There doesn't seem to be very many actual message boards left. If Yahoo hadn't kept messing things up, we'd still be there.

Patricia, if it works like the sample board everything should go over and we won't have to register again and all the messages should be there also.

I hope they do not make too many changes. I know Verizon bought over Yahoo and I wonder if it will be different now or have the same problems as before.

OK - here we go again :roll:
fingers crossed things go smoothly ( which I doubt - but hope I am wrong!)
