    As most of you know, Jeff is changing the forum software on the 24th, and there will be a couple of hours of downtime. It has been suggested that we all smoke something on that day and prepare Q-view for the new forum.

    I am totally down with this idea.

    Who else is with me?

    Awesome! I still haven't decided yet. But it will be something new to me. [​IMG]

    I hope these changes aren't like the changes they did on the Chainsaw Carving forum a long time ago. I was smokin' (more like fuming) for weeks, trying to figure out how to use the new changes!!!!

    FURTHERMORE, I think that we should all try something new -- something we have never done before.

    I think that it would be fitting for the transition.

    And don't forget the awesome Q-view!

    Just my opinion, of course. I will do this. [​IMG]

    I don't think it will.

    I fully expect issues but that's because I work in IT and am naturally pessimistic, but I think Brian and Jerry and Jeff got it worked out.

    Plus the software developers are going to be on hand to help too.

    What we have to remember is that this is a free forum (for most of us though some have paid) and these guys are busting their arses to make this forum better.

    I've been through the last migration and though some people's posts and pics were lost, all in all things turned out well.

    I'd love to be an admin and help them out but I don't envy them come 5/25 even if everything goes well.

    There are always naysayers that will point out nitpicky problems and get others riled up.

    Level heads will prevail though.

    God speed to the boys and we'll be smoking while they're working!

    I'm gonna smoke something too, probably a Brisket, so it sounds like a plan. Good Idea!

    I've seen the new forum format, and I don't think that it will be a problem to adjust. It has many new features that I think you will appreciate (I know that I do).

    I'm actually excited about it, and I don't think that it will be difficult to adjust to the new format. There are plenty of people here that will help you out if you have trouble. I am one of them.

    SO, smoke something on the 24th, and take pictures of it! Then post them on the new and improved forum!

    That's all that I'm asking. [​IMG]

    Sounds awesome -- bring it on for the 24th!

    Also, you should totally share the recipe with the rest of us. [​IMG]

    Do you have to work on your buzz-killing abilities? Because I think that you have those perfected.

    I don't think his intent was to buzz-kill, just speaking for himself. I like the idea, but I also will be busy on that day, that's part of my mod duties. I'm hoping you'll have plenty of folks joining in on your idea, and thanks for your contributions to the sMF.

    This would be a great time to try out all the new features. One of which will be streaming video from within the forum. [​IMG]

    Maybe some folks can try their hand at Qview in video.

    I'm still trying to figure out what I want to smoke. Something that I haven't done before -- maybe a chuckie, maybe some stuffed chicken breasts, maybe a stuffed burger. Who knows? Not me.
