We plan to update the skin to take the look and feel from both sites and merge them so everyone feels at home. We'll look at a full site refresh (look & feel) when we switch to a new platform later.

I know it seems slow but this is a lot of changes and we need to make sure we get everything right. New domain, merging two sites, then a new platform. Lots of change.
Thanks for the update. Much appreciated!

Are you still planning on setting up a test site with snapshots of the DB's to merge so that we staff members can test it to make sure things are working correctly?

So...how about getting the mobile app working again? Been a couple months now.

I'm not aware of a computerforums folding team, so a merge etc of points wouldn't be a problem. Could you request a name change?

It would seem a waste to simply create a new group because of the name.

Not sure if name changes can be requested... Honestly surprised we still have a forum for it seeing as the team has disapeared over the years...

I understand what spud wants, but its all down to volunteers really imo.. someone could start a youtube channel for techist (tech-forums) and post vids, maybe someone requests or asks advise on a guide, then someone can make a vid for members (and public). It just adds a little extra support I guess?

Maybe thats to extreme.. but just a thought
