FMVperformance.com would like to thank all its members for contributing to making this site great. As it has grown, we have started smacking up against the realistic limits of the current software we use (phpBB). At this point, it has become horrendously inefficient, and that is why you have seen so many times when the sites are slow lately. In addition, security issues with the software have made it increasingly hard to keep the site safe.
To fix all this, on Sunday June 19 we will be converting all FMVperformance sites to Simple Machines Forum (simplemachines.org
). This software is more efficient and has a better feature set and more security than the current software we use.
The conversion process will take several hours, at the very least. At worst, it should be done by the end of the day - we fully intend on having the site back online by Monday, June 20, at the latest.
All posts & users will be preserved. The one exception to this is if you have a single quote in your name ( ' ) - then that will be removed from your name. Still, no information will be lost.
Once the conversion is done, if any problems are noticed, please report them.
For information during the downtime, carputermac.com and quickcobalt.com will remain online.
