    The only thing that has changed for you is this announcement and my presence here. This is an opportunity to keep the site running and help it continue to grow. Dave made the decision to pass on the site management to us, nothing was gobbled up.

    I suspect that many more people would be upset if the site was simply shut down.

    That said, I'm anxious to see how this plays out too.

    Guys, can we give this a chance before coming out with torches and pitchforks. So far nothing has changed, and as a matter of fact, it was explicitly stated that XenForo will stay as the forum, we aren't losing SSL security (so https still works), the lights are on, nothing has changed. Eventually Dave would have had to pass on the management of Allpar to someone else to ensure it runs anyway, and this sounds like this was an amicable way to do it.

    So let's take a deep breath and continue to enjoy and post on Allpar as we did before. Thanks guys.

    It feels like more of a back end change than one we'll ever really notice. I thought we'd see more changes by now but I'm pleasantly surprised.

    I have noticed that.



    I wonder, if you had waited a month or two that this had been done if people would have even noticed.

    I'll confess; I've been on Allpar a lot less without Mopar Norm and Bob_Sheaves. I'm probably older than either of them. Having formal education in math, physics, meteorology, and engineering myself; I felt that both really knew what they were talking about.

    Norm and Bob S were interesting guys to say the least. They both had a variety of life experiences and could hold a conversation on just about any topic. That’s what I liked most about both of them. Both were highly opinionated, and weren’t shy about sharing their opinions...lol. I learned a ton from both of them. Of course, all of this is equally true of Dave as well. :)

    Just experienced an Amazon “win a prize” spinning wheel ad that redirected me from allpar. Any ad that I cannot close and have to relaunch the allpar website and find where I was is unacceptable.

    Thats not from this site. Thats DNS Hijacking. Nothing allpar can do about it. But you or your ISP can block the fraudulent IP addresses to prevent it.

    No, I cleaned up my cookies and browsing history. Still won't come up. I'm using IE 11. I'm not getting any error code, just a blank page. It's no big problem as I use Chrome more these days--crashes less than IE, from what I notice.

    Dave,

    Thank you for all your hard work and a fantastic website. I trust that you made a good and solid decision. May God bless you in this new chapter, and with healing! (sorry to hear about the health issues) Go get some rest and have some fun, and go rebuild that Valiant - we'll look forward to some posted pictures!

    @Techadmin how many more "quick server updates" should we expect?

    Quick... HA! Thus far, Allpar has spent more down time than being up.

    You are correct, this is not acceptable. Can you tell me what browser you where using, the operating system and if you are on a desktop, tablet, or phone? I need this info to look into how this appeared for you.

    I am hoping not as many as have happened in the last 24 hours.
