    This is the real deal and we are actually going to attempt the switch to new system.

    We will turn off this forum around 10pm PST Tuesday night and start the move process.

    I know we have flopped back and forth to get this move done, but it is FINALLY here. I am confident everyone is going to like the new system and find it much more intuitive than what we are on now.

    We are expecting the move to take a couple hours and the site back online around midnight on Tuesday.

    Thanks.

    The server move is complete. If you guys run into ANY problems please post them here or send me an email to support@bolttalk.com

    I will be monitoring that email address and these forums closely for the next 48 hours to make sure everything is going as smooth as possible.

    Yes I am looking into that right now. I have all the upload signatures in a folder and will upload those files. Might have to update the signature to match the new format. I will report back in about 30 minutes.

    No hurry, I just wondered if there was a glitch, or if we had to reload them.

    DUDE! Good catch, lol. I am going to be working on a new background right now. Seriously, that was a low point in my Charger fandom and I can't believe I didn't catch that!

    Adding that to the list of things to do...

    I was connecting through my Android phone and every dang page there was a pop up telling me there is an Android app. It is called Tapatalk or something. Is there no mobile page? I do not want to purchase this app just to get to the forums. Please disable this popup because it is in the way of surfing and posting this site.

    Thanks!
