We are Moving!

Dear Community Members,

Over the past year, there have been updates to your community environment that have introduced challenges in usability and performance. We sincerely apologize if you have been negatively impacted. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site. Once we started looking at how to address these issues, it became clear that we needed to determine how to fix the underlying problems.

We needed to improve user experience, site speed, and overall performance, all while providing a secure environment for you to interact with your community. For the past few months, we have been actively seeking a resolution to these issues.

We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community.

The new platform is designed for efficiency, stability, and to be user-friendly across all devices, including mobile. More time can be spent engaging, sharing, and contributing to your favorite community no matter where you are!

This is just the first stage of the new platform and we look forward to hearing your feedback as we make regular and timely improvements.

Thank you for all your support!

Re: We are Moving!

Dear Community Members,

We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that Bmwlt.com will be migrated to our new platform at a date TBD.

The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!

If for any reason there is a change of date, we will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.

We appreciate your support!

Re: We are Moving!

I hope you do better than what was done here:
https://www.benzworld.org/threads/we...dback.3035662/
That site has been a total nightmare since it was updated five months ago. There are close to 400 posts between users and the admin folks to try to get everything working.

Re: We are Moving!

Thanks, Mike! We have a couple older MBs... among our herd of German vehicles. Hopefully, it is up to snuff soon since I just joined.

Re: We are Moving!

There are so many files and reference documents and informational threads stored here. I hope they all will be moved and remain accessible. Maybe those who can should back them up locally and make sure they are restored to our knowledge base after the migration should they disappear.

Re: We are Moving!

Just an observation I'd like to pass along to you guys. I find it actually pretty funny that no one has apparently noticed.
It appears that our motorcycle obsession is incredibly expensive, and your website is a great marketplace.

The classified statistics quoted today on the upper left of the classified page...

Users 38,344
Active Ads 2,175
Comments 3,034
Views 19,870,353
Items Sold 2,671
Value of items sold $3,043,252,224

SOOOO doing the math - that would mean that the average value of each item sold is over a million dollars!!!

Re: We are Moving!

The migration team has had a lot more practice since they started doing the moves. Things go a lot smoother then they did at the beginning. Everything will be done to ensure no information is lost

Re: We are Moving!

The migration date has been bumped to TBD.

We will update you once we have a new date.
