    Just a little FYI that we're doing some pruning and reorganizing of the categories and quiet forums. No threads are being deleted.

    The aim is to make the user experience a little better by removing clutter and reducing clicks. I got started on the obvious stuff this morning. Jeff and I are debating some of the larger moves, but if you're hitting the refresh button this weekend you might see some changes happening.

    P.S. Jeff found a new Xenforo developer to give us a hand upgrading to the current version and to do some other cool stuff. So, more new stuff is on the horizon!

    :lol: thanks guys. You can't do something right without having a few haters.

    The overarching cleaning is done. All nested forums are gone. If you click a forum link you're getting straight into threads. Also, sorry DMS companies, but the days of you having your own special forums are over. You want that, we have a sponsorship package you can buy. And for you guys it will only be a 30 year contract :321:

    And last but not least you'll notice we have done away with Premium Membership. I don't think a single person signed up for it, so no loss there. But we are going to be putting more emphasis on Sponsored Forums. I love them! It is a place for start ups to get known and established companies to get better acquainted with their customers. I hope to see some good action in those as we grow that section.

    Nice, sponsored forums are smarter in my opinion. À la carte for vendors and the ability to connect with potential customers, etc.

    Is there a suggestion thread here, I probably should know this? There are some things that Driving Sales does that I think would benefit this community.

    @craigh@craigh and @Jeff Kershner@Jeff Kershner deserve a big shout-out for some significant cleanup work and updates behind the scenes :thumbup:

    They got the Xenforo upgrade done, so we're now running on the latest and greatest. And the best news is nobody has noticed a hiccup! That's how an upgrade/update is done right. Nice work fellas :bow:
