I'm evaluating new, very modern, forum software. It is desktop and mobile friendly! It is a big change from the C3VR's current software and from other Corvette forums sites.
I'd like you all to give it a try and let me know what you think of it. You will need to create a new login (or login with Facebook). Your existing C3VR login will not work there. Please try this today and let me know what you think!

Looks good, but it's aggravating the hell outta me. Censored 
Needs a bit of tweekin, I s'pose, and it's a LOT different from any other forumware I've seen....
How long will this test site be up? I'd like to spend a little more time pokin around, perhaps this weekend.

I know. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks!

It will be up through at least 1/29.

Thanks!

Sorry.

What's wrong with this format?

Sorry Adam,  but I like what is here.   I just like this lay out, and style better.  One of the things also that bothered me is the limits on how much can/can not be said.
   I will say that I did not try to post on it, i am just going on the visuals, i prefer what we have.  Your call however, either way I will still be hiding in the shadows around here, Dave.

I gave it a look and of course your lost cause everything is so different, but I'm sure there are many things that can be done with it to make it more familiar for our members, after all there is only so much you can do with a test site.  The important thing is we do not want to lose the great info we have on the old site, and yes I posted a picture all by myself on the new site which I have never been able to succeed on this one.  
If new is the way to go for better performance then I'm in

I'm up for something new -- the "mobile friendly" part is what I like.  I agree with most that the current software is great and familiar and very easy to use, but if you're trying to access it on an iphone, that all goes out the window.  I took a look at the test site and it is a lot different, but I'm sure we'd get used to it pretty quick.  

Adam, have you looked into any of the systems that are compatible with the mobile app Tapatalk?  I belong to a forum for my older Chevy Truck and can use that app to view and post on the forum - works pretty slick.
