    Tacoma Forum has upgraded it's forum software to xenforo. There are a lot of reasons for this which I will get into soon... but for now please let me know if you are having any problems using the site. There are a ton of settings I still need to adjust so if you see something please let me know.

    Thanks!

    I still have access to all of them if you need me to grab them for you. I need to figure out another gallery solution. My hesitation with some of them is the lack of app support.

    I guess I'd have to go on the computer to know what you're talking about.

    Yea, that's a bit much (by a bit I mean A LOT).

    I need to see if there is a way I can put limits on them. It's never fun having to page down just to get past signatures.

    There are a few problems with the app as well that I'm trying to figure out. I wish more people would visit from their desktops from time to time though. Our members are about 95% App only.

    Better, but there needs to be some way of limit so we don't have to manually watch the size people use.

    We DID NOT get hacked but the software we were using was about 10 years old and starting to show its age. Spambots were able to easily get past it's spam management system and post ads on the site. That's one of many reasons I moved to this new software. It may take some getting used to but I think you'll find it's better once you get used to it. The code is much cleaner and it runs faster on the server. There are also a lot of new features like threaded "conversations" (previously Private Messages), better mobile browser support, and the ability to save drafts so if you navigate away from a thread you don't lose what you've typed. There's a lot of features I need to highlight for you but right now I'm still trying to figure out why quotes are messed up on the app.
