Default Coming soon - a slight name change

Hi all

In the coming weeks (I will make an official announcement with the actual date and time of the changeover), we will be renaming DogForum.org into DogForum.net in order to solidify all of our family of sites as .net domain names. If you've ever mistyped, you would have noticed that dogforum.net already is a redirect to this site. What will happen is we will change the branding, but, since we still own the old domain and will keep it as a redirect all old links will continue to work, old bookmarks will continue to work, etc. The only difference, from the member's perspective, will be the logo and our 'primary' domain.

No changes have been made yet, but, we just wanted to give a heads-up in advance so the logo change is not unexpected. The same great community we have will still be here, with the same staff, ownership, and management - just with a slightly different name.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have, and again, I'll update everyone with the date of the actual change once I know it.

Thank you!

For now, just the logo at the top of the site and the branding in other places will change.

We are actually going to be launching a new photography site soon with a whole new design team, and if all goes well with these new designers and programmers, we will upgrade Dogforum to the latest discussion software available and will make it look much nicer, too.

Nice! I have a question well a couple I need answers to? Does this mean I won't be able to use the site especialy the forum sections (topics) and click on pics etc like "our Dogs" and members Avatars? As your quote says: To the latest discussion software available And 2. will there be a option in the CP so I can revert back to the current software version? Sorry I just feel that Iam going to be left out of this forum! Is there anything you can do before lauch date Please?
Thanks in advance

Awesome! Some (mostly semi-related) discussion can be found here - you should be able to read it without needing to register:
http://www.overclock.net/photography...nterested.html

All interested parties should send me an email to [email protected] and I'll be keeping everybody updated that way until the site's launch. No worries if you don't get a reply back immediately, I try to avoid flooding people's inboxes.

Hi Bigboy! I sure hope the new forum software will work better for you than the current version does - we are not changing platforms entirely, but looking to move to the latest version of our current platform (from vBulletin 3 to vBulletin 4). This does mean that the plugins we use for things like the gallery will also be upgraded, so they will hopefully work better for you as well.

I think the advent of mobile devices becoming so popular has created a need for simple, clean code that should make for an easier time with your hardware.

The option to keep using the current software will not be available - there is no good way to do that, unfortunately. You won't be left out!
