Dear B15u 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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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!

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 B15u.com will be migrated to our new platform on Friday, October 25th. 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!

The last time the site was migrated over to Google Cloud Services it was busted for many months. But to give credit where it is due, everything was rectified and the site now functions very well.

As I work in a software field servicing customers with Materials handling warehouse software, I know how critical it is to thoroughly test new software updates on a separate server prior to change-over at the customer's site.
I sincerely hope that all current site functionality is tested during this maintenance mode period before switching the live site over to the new one.
It would even be better if moderators were allowed priveleged access to the new site as beta-testers before switching the live site over to the new platform for all general users.

AG, We have a group buy going on November 1st. It is very critical that we get this finalized.

Can the migration wait til the middle of next month (November)?
Hello,

The site will only be in read-only for few hours and should be up and running to avoid any issues with the Group Buy.
