    Fanatics -

    Just an FYI that we will be shutting down the forums today at noon for the launch of our new site. It will take about six hours for the data to transfer over to the new forum software and migration to the new site will take a different amount of time for everybody depending on your service provider, etc.

    My hope is that the new site should be up and running for most by 9 or so tonight. Again though, it will be different for everybody.

    If you don't already follow us on Twitter @CycloneFanatic or @ChrisMWilliams for updates throughout the day.

    You can like our page on Facebook too as I'll update there.

    We will also have some instructional videos for you on the new site to get you to know the new forums better. However I've been tinkering around and there isn't much of a change at all. It's a lot easier actually.

    Thanks for your patience!

    My guess is that whatever this forum is made the same switch we are making. Pretty much everybody is doing it. And yes, we will be top-notch on mobile.

    Gray said on the fawcast that everyone is going to lose their titles. I don't think I can handle not being a veteran all star...
