    It is long overdue (8 snowballs were sighted in Hades), we are going to revamp the Barr Report. The software is new and some data bases will be added and worked into the site.


    We are doing away with the subscriber level membership. We have been telling new members about that for some time.


    The goal is have a more user friendly forum and data base. There is a lot of good information contained here and it's still one of the last larger planted web forum sites that's not gone corporate.


    There are some ads, but not a lot. The fiscal goal is to break even.

    I like the accessibility of the Articles -- many of them I hadn't seen before, as access to them was not great all the time in the past. There's some great overlooked info in them. That's been the biggie for me from this redesign.

    Hello, I had to reset my password - it was not working after the system change. That was not a big problem, but I've lost my watched interesting threads and I don't remember them. Even if I will find them, I will not remember what I've read already. Is there some secret link to the old forum to check?

    @zervan no sorry some things can't be migrated such as watched threads and passwords due to different encryptions with different software.

    Also No secret old software links.

    The new software is the way forward but it comes with some downsides such as these.

    Is there by chance a dark theme that can be set? Makes reading at night much more enjoyable.
