Hi All,

I've been mentioning the new forum that I am switching over to for a while now. Well it's getting closer. I have a programmer that is writing a script to transfer all these posts to the new site. As they say... any day now;)

While we are waiting, can you all go to the new Fiat 500 USA Forum Facebook page and hit "Like". That will help secure a name for the site.

Here is the link: <a href="http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Fiat-500-USA-Forum/212139168813515">Fiat 500 USA Forum Facebook Page</a>

Thanks for all your support!

Best regards,

Chris

PS. I know I should have posted this on the "Site News" but the general discussion gets the most views! I'll be better on the new forum:)

Very cool. This seems like the most active forum, but the features of Nabble are lacking. Glad to see something better is coming. I have a lot of experience with forums (mostly phpBB), so let me know if you want any help or need some moderators.

I just tried to "Like" it and got the error "Sorry, your connection failed at this time. Please try again."

Is FIAT USA going to give you any grief over the name of the site/forums?

Chris,

Are you actually going to PUT the forum onto Facebook or is that just the page to advertise it?

Reason I ask is that there are some who refuse to do Facebook, and I'm one, I know, a minority but still...

Hi Chris

I figured you were busy playing with your new Fiat. I guess in fact you are working on FB. Can you please contact me about being a sponsor.

Thanks and Happy Easter

Don't worry, it's just a Facebook page, <i>NOT</i> the forum. <smiley image='smiley_good.gif'/> The Forum is vBulletin 4.0 and is up being tested. You guys and gals deserve the best!

Hi Rick,

Believe it or not, between work and this site, I haven't had that much time to check my car out! Crazy, right? I'm working tomorrow, but I'll get in touch Monday.

Thanks and best regards,

Chris

Contact me when you get caught up.

Warm wishes for the weekend

Yeah, Nabble has its limitations, I'm looking forward to the vBulletin site. It does, however, have an extreme learning curve. Nabble doesn't have a migration feature, so I am having someone write a custom program to make that happen.

Also, thanks for the offer. I'll keep it in mind.
