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 Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site.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

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 Celicasupra.com will be migrated to our new platform on Wednesday, January 22nd. 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!

I'm all for progress as long as we don't lose all the knowledge this forum has gathered over its existence. :)

AAAAAWWWWWWWWSSSSSSOOOOOOMMMMMEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, thank you so much, this is exactly what this community needs! I've been spending a lot of time on SupramkV.com for the last year and a big, not because I love the new Supra (I really don't lol), but because its a vibrant and active community with excellent modern forum software! This old vBulletin crap is so dated and behind the times, its just painful to just drop in and use anytime, especially from mobile. People are going to love the new software, it fixes almost all of the advantages Facebook has on forums! I was going to petition you guys to do this actually, but I never got around to writing up the full post.

People, once the board is back and up on the new software and stable, we need to all get a campaign going to herd the troops back here from all the splintered Facebook groups everyone has drifted off to! Its almost time to bring everyone home!
