Hey everybody! Just a little warning that we will be running a fairly big upgrade on the site later tonight. I plan to run the upgrade tonight and expect it will take a while, maybe several hours. During that time MFC will be offline, but we will try to keep everyone updated on our social media accounts, on Twitter and Facebook. When you log in tomorrow, you'll find that a number of enhancements have been made. Many of these won't change your daily usage of the forums as we don't do e-commerce here, or they are functions for moderators. But there will be some changes that you might notice: -- Improved search function -- Ability to resize large photos before uploading. -- Ability to embed TikTok videos -- Expanded thread (also called topic) lists. This means you'll be able to read part of the thread from the list of topics, without having to click inside to see if it interests you. -- Each thread/topic will have an activity bar so that you can see at a glance how old it is, when the last reply was, a mini gallery of images in the topic and more. -- Topics will show follower counts so you can see how many people follow the subject. -- Long quotes will be collapsed, reducing how much scrolling you'll have to do, if you want to skip over something. -- Improvements with notifications. -- Integration with a variety of other apps, including Google Docs, Twitter, Facebook and Discord. For example, we SHOULD be able to create a Google doc that all members can see, and that new members will be added to automatically. (I say "should" because this is a beta test function, so I'm not sure if/when we will be able to make this work for us.) The most exciting thing that will happen with this upgrade is the introduction of a mobile app version! This is still in beta testing for iOS and Android, so we have to see exactly how it's going to work for MFC, once our software has been upgraded. It may still be a while before this is available to all of our members, but it is something that we will keep you updated on. Thanks for your patience tonight while we undergo this upgrade. I hope that by tomorrow at this time we'll all be back here, with everything mostly back to normal! Let us know if you have any questions or experience any issues!
