    Board Upgrade...The Future

    Hi guys,

    I think it may be time to upgrade the board to the new version. The one we've been using is almost 5 years old. I think there have been a ton of improvements over the years, and lots of new features that we haven't taken advantage of. And I think with VH basically being so dormant, it's probably a good time to upgrade since it's quiet.

    I'm going to look into it today, may give it a shot. I'm sure a lot of things will be out of wack when it happens, but we'll slowly get everything back working.

    I'm also thinking about making some other changes to expand the site's scope next year. There is so little to talk about VH, that I think it's time to try to add some other stuff, just to re-invorgate it a little. There just isn't that much to talk about, and I think most people are in the other forums on here at this point anyway. If you have any ideas, feel free to let me know. I have a few of my own I will share when the time is right.

    So that's what's going on.

    I don't know what this site needs that it doesn't already have - we have a sports forum, we have the 'Tard Barn - life on the Links is good!

    Don't know if you're thinking along the lines of minimizing but it almost seems like we could just have one Van Halen forum again that covers past and present. For most of us this band is nothing but 'past' anyways.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Ok we're back in business, yes I know everything looks crazy. It will be fixed, I just have to slowly get it all back in.

    I set up a thread for all the discussions we'll inevitably need to get the board back going right.

    Unfortunately that seems to be the way of it right now.
