Ok all, we have a barebones version of the new GCWA forum up and running. Many things are still being configured and heavy construction is still underway as far as graphics are concerned so don't judge the look just yet. I am waiting on my graphic assets so I can make the new forum match the website.

Here is the plan:

Please http://www.gcwa.com/Forum - visit the new forum and register . http://www.gcwa.com/Forum

(notice the capital letter, it will matter for the first week after that it won't)

Next Sunday, I will lock the old forum for new posts and it will be linked from the main page as "GCWA Forum Archive 2002-2011"

If you would like your post count migrated please send an email to webmaster@gcwa.com after you have confirmed your new account and successfully logged in. You will need to migrate your own avatar by downloading it from this forum and uploading it to the new one.

Problems with some functionality are to be expected through the course of this week as I am working on the forum. However, when you find something that is broken please email me so I can get a list going of things that need to be worked on.

Current Admins and Moderators: Please do the same and send me an email so I can verify your current permissions and duplicate them on the new forum.

Board Members: Once you register on the new site (hopefully all board members will register by the end of the week.) I will add you to the board member group.

Sponsors: I would like for each sponsor to register a company wide account on the forum that way I can create a "Sponsor" forum that you can post specials, gcwa perks, events, etc in a special section. Email me with your account name so I can add you to the "sponsors" group and create your forum. This way GCWA members will know that the people posting here really support our club and will hopefully pay a bit more attention than a random posting full of advertising.

I've decided not to lock this forum until after all bash that way you guys can make an announcement so nobody gets surprised.

I noticed there is no announcement on the main GCWA page about the new forum and the main page still has link to the old forum that is returning a server error. Maybe an announcement on GCWA and forcing that traffic to the new site would help get the user count up?

Yep, it's in the works. Just hard to administer all that from an iPad in Cali. Well definitely be all switched my months end. Once I lock this forum from new posts after fall bash people won't have a choice ;)
