    We're in the process of moving the truck forum to completely new software. You might notice some down time in the next couple of days. After the major move, it will take a couple weeks for the design and layout of the truck forum to finalize, but it should be fully usable in a couple days. Thanks for your patience!

    The truck forum has been moved over and most things should be working well. There will still be a little downtime over the next couple days to finish a few other changes. You should notice the site working much better now in mobile browsers without having to zoom in/out like you used to. The forum should also load much faster overall. Some great things are still coming like a ShowCase for your truck (or the one you want), possibly classifieds section, Truck/Product Reviews, etc. Note that your old Reputation points have been converted to likes. There are lots of new features. For example: You can tag members by using an @ symbol in front of their name like @chevychase and they will get an alert about that post. Click your name in the top right of the truck forum to change all your settings, signature, avatar, etc. Private Messages (PMs) are now called Conversations. They are basically the same. Click the email icon on the top right to view your Conversations.

    Again, feel free to comment and ask questions in the Forum Help section.

    We've made some changes to attachments, so they should be easier to upload. We also fixed some issues with Full and Senior members - you can now update your avatar and signature.

    New quoting features:
    Now if you want to quote multiple posts at the same time you can do so by clicking +quote on several posts.
    if you just want to quote a piece of a post, you can just select what you want quoted, click +quote in the popup, and then in your new post just click insert quote.. Easy!

    Just fixed thousands of broken youtube links in old posts that were showing up as text.

    You'll notice a "media" tab on the forum. You might want to ignore it for the moment. We're using a new image gallery to convert your old user albums over to the new forum. Once that is done, you can start using it if you like. However, if you want to show off your truck and have your own page including a description, hold on for a few days.. We're going to be adding an awesome "showcase" feature for each member's truck that spotlights them and is completely customizable by the member.

    We made some changes to make creating a Private Conversation a little easier -- especially for newbies. Now next to your name on every post there is a little email icon that will allow you to send someone a message right there, without leaving the page. Also on your profile there is a button to send a message, as well on the "Card" popup when you click someone's name or avatar. Before it was sort of hidden how to send someone a private conversation/message.
