Blue = good. Though when I was at an office job it always made me nervous because no legitimate website I would have been on could possibly have been blue.

Good luck Elvis. When will we start to see the changes? Is there a forum out there right now that has them implemented that we could go lurk on to take a look?

Interesting. I'm wary of this due to a string of bad experiences of ownership changes, but I'll try to be positive.

I do hope the forum upgrade doesn't add features just for the sake of having more features. We're all familiar with sites like MySpace that are just overburdened by feature after feature. Simpler often tends to be better and clearer. Like Varitek, I'd be interested in seeing an example of another forum already running on the latest software.

I know how much you hate change, and if you are actually excited about this, I know it HAS to be good!!!

Hey there,

Thanks for the kind welcome Joel (and Sicy).

I am really excited to be joining you all here. I love music (in general) and have been a U2 fan since I was in my early teens (around 20 years ago). My favorite venue is Red Rocks where I saw various shows while I was in College in Colorado. I travel quite a bit taking my laptop with me and working from the far corners of the world (there is high speed internet everywhere). My most recent trip was to Africa where I spent 9 weeks seeing things first hand and learning about all the issues Bono talks about.

I'll respond to some of the questions that have been posted.

As Sicy mentioned, Blue Crack is staying. The new version of the software will have minor changes such as the buttons (quote, new topic reply, etc). For the most part the site will look exactly the same but it will just be the latest version of vBulletin (the software that runs this forum). It will not be any kind of overwhelming changes more like modernization while trying to keep the character of the site that you all love so much intact.

the new features are pretty much just out-of-the-box vBulletin features that have been added to the software over the last 5 years. They include things like better handling of attachments and lots of new tools for the staff. There is no plan to go feature crazy like MySpace but you will be able to make friends with each other (that is one of the standard features of the new version).

Please keep the questions coming and I will respond to them as soon as possible.

No, nothing will change with your subscriptions. We will be looking at ways to bring more value for those of you who subscribe while at the same time trying to give non-subscribers a little more access also. We have not worked out the details but we have started talking about it. After the upgrade and a few other projects we will circle back to this.
