FOA is getting a long-overdue upgrade: Zach is very kindly moving is up in the world from this very 1990s vBulletin world we are living in right now, to a newer, brighter world, called Discourse.
This will be happening on Friday night - the forum will go offline entirely for the migration. When you return on Saturday, everything will be completely different, however assuming everything goes well, you will be able to login with your usual username/password combination.

I digress: Everyone will need to reset their passwords - SO ENSURE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS CURRENT AND UP TO DATE BEFORE THEN.

Thanks for all your efforts over the years NickJ. How long before we have Defender sub forum?
Still love fixies now and forever.

This is a bait and switch - Defenders are the new fixies, we’re transitioning to a more Land Rover specific forum to appeal to our userbase.
it begins! Will need a whole seperate sub forum on Pete’s disco thoughts and problems. And I’ll continue to harass Rolu to get snork on dat Hilux.
