Dear Grizzly Central 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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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 Grizzlycentral.com will be migrated to our new platform on Wednesday, September 11th. 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!

This thread made me remember the day windows 10 showed up and took over my computer.

Admin,

Are we going to have the serious issues we had last time....where people were locked out of their accounts, passwords didn't work and we lost a boat load of users?

Hello all,

There were some schedule changes with the migration of the community and will be bumping back the migration date.

We have pushed the date back to TBD for now and will update you all once we have a firm date.

I really hope it's not going to be the same or similar platform to the new one that ArcticChat got. That one is awful IMO.

I appreciate you guys keeping the lights on, pounding the dirt out if the rugs, and emptying the trash can.

Just do what you gotta do.
