What new features can we expect? Will we be getting a Harvick forum already? How about a SHR forum for communications from SHR to fans?

Lets hope they can keep things in working order. Annalee and I would like the race points they have failed to give us over the season. I won't get too fired up about anything new until I see it. Strange time of year to change the site. If they have the problems this one cost we'll probably have about 6 people posting. Maybe just maybe I'll beable to use the PM system or a few other things I'm missing. One gets what they pay for.

I was thinking the same thing - mid-season. :?

Something else has occurred to me when looking at this site. Take a look at the Topics...Introduce Yourself, Tony, Ryan, Danica, NASCAR & Racing, The Lobby, ect... when you look at all the threads on each topic and then how many pages it stacks up to, then how many pages are on some of these threads...we are talking about some serious server space.

This could be causing some of the issues on lots of levels from overall website error problems to individual member problems with their personal accounts. By starting from scratch and deleting some of the older threads, if they do, it could create some server space. Of course they could be going with a total different type of software and depending on the type depends on how much memory is needed and used.

Good point beave. Part of the problem of space is simply due to the fact that they don't have a moderator here. As a former one, I have to laugh at how many duplicate threads there are. Many people start one on the same subject, rather than look for one on their subject that already may exist, and then add to that one. You couple that with how many posts there are "derailing" threads, and it's probably very true that they are running out of space. (Derailing is posting a comment that really doesn't relate to the Original Poster's.)
As conscientious contributors to a forum, people really should stay on the OP's subject, and make sure that there isn't a thread already started on something you wish to talk about. It's not only good for conserving space, but it is also considerate to others. If you use the "view unread posts" link-option from the Board Index (you should if you don't...it saves major time), you'll cut down your searches and reading time if people follow these steps of not duplicating threads and not derailing. It's a win-win. Both for the site, and for all of us. ;)
