I read that post this morning from Mike, and particularly the highlighted sentences.xantia_v6 wrote: ↑14 Jan 2020, 05:34The forum is due for a software update on several components, including the PHP engine, the forum core software and several forum extensions.
I have been doing preparatory work on this for a few weeks, and I think that all of the packages are ready.
I intend to start on this this week, which will require the forum to be offline for several hours at a time, and it may take 2 or 3 sessions to complete.
I will be mainly working between midnight and 4am to minimise disruption,
What tremendous work goes on to facilitate our own enjoyment of this great forum.
With modern cars there are fewer and fewer DIY mechanics, and the problems to solve increasingly are more of a techy nature...lights coming on, fault codes, sensors, limp modes etc. Luckily there are still the experts willing to help and you have to give Marc "Give me a break" a special mention. I dont think there is another forum as switched on in those matters than the FCF.
When I look at the forum in the morning, I like to see new content, new conversations, or old favourites, catch up on the blogs or see if I can chip in to help with the core "car problems".
So use this thread to express your own gratitude, and my challenge is to reward all the hard work behind the scenes by making a conscious effort to join in with the posts, start new threads, welcome new members, and keep the FCF what it is, the best Car related forum on the net.
Thanks to all
