Glock Talk Software Changeover

Hi folks. After using the vBulletin message board system here on GT for more than a decade-and-a-half, we are making final preparations to change the site over to a newer, more dynamic software package, called XenForo. The change will happen in the next couple of weeks and probably within the next week.

We will try to give you warning as things happen. We will post announcements, as the process allows us. There could be between 24 to 48 hours of downtime, during the transition. We wish it could be avoided, but unfortunately it cannot. We will do everything we can to minimize the downtime though. There should be no loss of user or thread/post data during this transfer.

vBulletin has been a good platform for the site, but Xenforo is a younger, forward-thinking company and they are designing some great features into their system. For instance, the new GT will have much greater abilities and functionality from mobile devices, even without the use of a mobile browsing app, although such apps will still work.

We will post more to acquaint you with the software's capabilities and functions, once the changeover is effected. We apologize for the downtime and appreciate your patience, during this transition. Eric
