Alfa Romeo Giulia Forum made the same move. I lived on that site but rarely go on it anymore. The layout of the site is annoying. I hope this isn't going to be like that.
This 'new' format is making me very uncomfortable. I don't have a clue how to navigate it & don't know if I'll bother to learn how...OK folks, the BB migration has happened, it's early days and there will still be some adjustments - Just live with it, this is a move by Autoguide to run a common underpinning for all their BB platforms, it simplifies their lives and reduces overheads. The site is owned and run by Autoguide, so they call the shots !! Capiche !!
The Moderators just keep the member side of things running smoothly, we don't have access to the Tech stuff in the background, so don't shoot us and more importantly don't shoot the Autotech BB Support, we are privileged to have such a fantastic resource for our little Jewels.
So, what can you do now - Relax & explore the site, all the functionality is there, albeit in a slightly different place, the Forums are little white bar lines on the top right, click on them and go for it.
What NOT to do: - Well loud complaining and multiple angry posts won't change anything, have a cup of coffee & relax, we're all going through the same growing pains right now....
I repeat: Autoguide owns the site, they pay the bills, so they call the shots - Thanks to them, we still have the BB as a resource

I think you might've missed my joke, or my attempt at one. Good luck weathering the storm.Matt post your question here --> https://www.alfabb.com/threads/we-are-live-community-feedback.689346/#post-8492405
Well, Greig, you might as well give me a LIFE suspension. I've given a hell of a lot more to this board than you have. If you want to make an "example" of me, be my guest.If you'd made the same remarks on the old BB I'd have given you a 2 week all expenses paid vacation in Suspension Land no questions asked,
John you are taking my remarks out of context, I've raised your concerns with the Forum owners and I'll report back to you, I'm not your enemy.Well, Greig, you might as well give me a LIFE suspension.

Evidently, the programmers don't even know what they programmed. LOL. This from the FAQ section concerning edits:
You should be able to edit your post for up to 24 hours. Near the timestamp at the top of the post, you should see an edit link if it is within that time limit. After 24 hours you would need to reach out to a mod/admin for assistance.
The redesign could have been done using the same look, feel, and operable format, but it wasn't. That was intentional and excuses to the contrary are smoke.
