    This is the first proper heads up that we're going to be upgrading the board software probably in June or July if the stars align properly (and if not I'm sure we have the odd captain around to give them a nudge).

    The actual upgrade is quite a major undertaking and the board will be down for 24-48 hours whilst the work is completed, so please bear with us when it's actually happening.

    All your details, posts, conversations, etc will be preserved along with your existing password etc.

    There will no doubt be some teething issues and we'll have a dedicated forum for posting snagging issues in so they can be addressed properly.

    I'm sure the upgrade will disgust some members and be welcomed by others, however we are overdue and it needs to happen. Personally I think the functionality is much improved on the new branch of software so hopefully overall a positive change. We're broadly keeping the themes/styles we currently have, within the new templates, they will no doubt require a little more work as we settle into them (they are not 100% identical!), so again please bear with us as they are refined over the first few months.

    I'd ask you to check :
    1. That the email address associated with your account is current and one you can access.
    2. That you know your password and if you don't you set it to something you do know!
    Since you're going to have to log back in after the upgrade.

    We'll notify you when we're a week or so out from the upgrade and have narrowed down a date.
