    I'm hoping to get the latest release of the new forum software installed sometime next week, and would like a few volunteers to help me test it.

    If you fancy test-driving the new CC platform and giving me some constructive feedback, please post on this thread.

    I'll PM you with access details once it's ready.

    Thanks,
    Shaun :thumbsup:

    Wow, that was quick ... :thumbsup:

    The main thing I'm looking for are pointers to the key differences between what we've got now, and the new platform, so I can guide people reasonably smoothly through the switch-over.

    I could do it by myself but because we all use the current software differently, it'll help to have a number of perspectives.

    Some things will be missing, some will be there but in different places, some will be there but work differently, and then there are the new features that we don't have here that will need explaining.

    If we can document most of the major differences beforehand, it'll help others when we migrate.

    Cheers,
    Shaun :smile:

    Fairly new to forums, so I probably don't understand all the current functionality yet. But if you want a selection of perspectives, I can give you an impression from a new guys perspective.

    I've got a free week next week... and early forecast's aren't for a heatwave.... pick me if you like - though as long as it isn't too technical to get started.

    Will it be a sort of shadow of this one or completely empty structure to wander around in?

    Not technical at all, just login and have a play. :smile:

    I'm hoping to upgrade the test board so it should be pretty complete and contain lots of threads / posts etc.

    Cheers,
    Shaun ;)
