    Hi, I used to be a big supporter of Teryxforums and tried to help everyone I could. Due to the level of name calling, personal insults and complete disrespect they allow over there this is my new home. I will try to help anyone I can with anything I can help with. I have years worth of content on the other site I have feely spent my time trying to help people and it sucks it is not all here. :(

    Anyway, happy to have a new place to hang out and exchange information with people.

    Will

    Welcome Will. That's one of the main things we do not tolerate. Disrespect.

    Glad you found us. We're just getting started so hang on tight!

    Welcome, Will. Glad to have you here. You have certainly been a wealth of information and a friend to a lot of people, myself included.

    Well said, and I know it will be. The staff here won't allow any BS.

    Thank you guys. Glad DLB clued me in on this site. Will take me a while to learn the software but I will help all I can. Thank you for the welcome.

    If you need any admin or mod help here I am down. I own and run the #1 RC Helicopter site in the world since 2004. We got to be #1 after about 2 years and have maintained the position since. I would be very happy to help make this the go to site any way I can. I have a lot of experience beat into me and one of the reasons my site is #1 is because I don't tolerate the troublemakers and I have a dedicated and trustworthy team of "moderators" I call them HF Support Team that help me. Took a lot of work, but I know how to make a forum grow and thrive. This software however, is pretty tricky for me right now but I will learn it. I have been running vBulletin for years and my site is very heavily modified. If you guys want to go to vBulletin I will pay for your license as a donation. If not, I understand.

    Any questions just hit me or @Butch450 up. This forum software is pretty easy though. It has it's quirks, but all in all it plays pretty well I think.

    I'm having a little trouble understanding it all too. But I will get used to it.

    @Magellan Welcome aboard. Really just the terminology is different between vB and Xenforo. vB 5.0 + is really more in line with this Xenforo software. Definitely a few quirks here and there, but as a whole it is leaps and bounds above anything vB has ever put out. I see you are running vB 3.8.7 on your site and that was the last version vB put out that was worth anything. vB has really gone down hill since 4.0 and their support is none existent.

    By far the best thing about Xenforo 1.4 is, at it's core its mobile responsive so there is no need to run Tapatalk or Forum Runner (vB version) for mobile users. You can even upload images direct from your mobile device to posts. The look may be different but its fairly easy to get used to. For the most part anything you are looking for in relation to user settings is accessed from the popup that opens when you hover your mouseover, or click on your user name in the main nav bar.

    Just hit us up if you have any questions or issues.

    It took a little tracking but I told you I would follow! I have a real distaste for the nonsense that was going on there.

    Looks like quite a few people are heading this way. Glad to see all the familiar "faces".

    I agree. It may say 3.8.7 on the page but it is very extensively modded for various security holes and out load needs. I will get used to it here. I will do everything I can to help. Tired of the disrespect and lack of oversight on my last home. If it keeps going down hill, I will fire up a site myself as I am so sick of the BS and name calling.

    Yeah security was always, and still is vB's biggest issue. Every version we ran on our sites needed tons of custom code written, styling, etc. The worst was vB's horrible attempt at CMS lol. vB 4.2 CMS was atrocious. So bad it pushed me towards wordpress for RnR's front end. Glad I did as it is above and beyond any CMS platform available for forum software, even custom CMS pages I have seen coded.
