Our engineers have finally finished getting our boards ready for upgrade. We will be upgrading the biggest installation of XenForo in the world this Thursday September 11.

What's that mean for you? Well, this is how things will play out:
1) The boards will be down from 11-Sep at 5pm PDT through 13-Sep at 5pm PDT
2) Through out the upgrade, the boards will be READ ONLY. Meaning you can read things but can't post or edit
3) When...

Hey everyone. As we all know, everyone loves mods ([face_tongue]), and you want as many mods patrolling the boards to make sure unsavory material is removed as possible. But sometimes we need to bring in some fresh blood to help us cover our bases and ensure the boards stay an environment that everyone wants to post on.
