We are Moving!

Dear Community Members,

Over the past year, there have been updates to your community environment that have introduced challenges in usability and performance. We sincerely apologize if you have been negatively impacted. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site. Once we started looking at how to address these issues, it became clear that we needed to determine how to fix the underlying problems.

We needed to improve user experience, site speed, and overall performance, all while providing a secure environment for you to interact with your community. For the past few months, we have been actively seeking a resolution to these issues.

We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community.

The new platform is designed for efficiency, stability, and to be user-friendly across all devices, including mobile. More time can be spent engaging, sharing, and contributing to your favorite community no matter where you are!

This is just the first stage of the new platform and we look forward to hearing your feedback as we make regular and timely improvements.

Thank you for all your support!

Dear Community Members,

We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that Skyroadster.com will be migrated to our new platform on Tuesday, January 28th. The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!

If for any reason there is a change of date, we will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.

We appreciate your support!

Will we need to get new PASSPORTS? That's a joke!

We just went thru a platform migration on another site where i am a Moderator and to be honest it was painless and the improvements were obvious after a couple of days of playing around with the features. Hopefully this forum sees the same results.

Well, there goes the neighborhood . . . just kidding . . . but it will take a bit of time to learn the new software, since it is quite a bit different than this old stuff.

I have not been on the Solstice site since day two. Don't like it, makes it harder for me to see it.

Most likely my last post on the forum. They did the same thing on the fj Cruiser forum. I don't need the aggravation. Have fun.

Did you try it in "Dark Mode"? I had a hard time with "Light Mode" but like it now that I have switched.

Solstice forum. Veloster forum, now this one . . . us old guys are not adapting well to these new style forums where everything is an icon to navigate the forum. Nosiree, don't give me a little picture to click on instead of a menu or regular link.

Ah well, such is the way of the software biz.

Except for the first four icons, one of which even has the word "New" in it, the rest of the navigation is menus with words. Isn't it?

I have a login cuz' my son-in-law is a member, but I don't participate. He asked me about some suspension mod recently and I didn't even know what he was asking . . .

Try the Subaru BRZ forum if you want to know how dead a forum can be. I had a #2 allocation at my dealership until I actually saw one and sat in it, gave up the allocaton the next day. What a piece of junk that car was.

It is? Could be, but I'm taking forever to get used to it, and frequently cuss at the new interface, don't like dark mode, and light mode is even worse.
