    Ok everyone, the time is now. Starting tonight Henrik, our beloved leader, will be switching the forum from the old format (vBulletin) to the new format (Xenforo). The forum will still be online but some posts will be lost (which I think is better than to shut it down for 8 hours). The new site is much more mobile friendly which will make viewing the site on phones and tablets much better. And it will offer social media style notifications.

    Here's to a better FinHeaven. Enjoy!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATE:
    Henrik says:
    The new forum has been installed. The new chat has also been installed and is available for our VIP members.

    Tapatalk was used as a bandaid to create a somewhat mobile experience on the old forum software. It is no longer needed nor supported. Try the FinHeaven directly in your mobile web browser. You will be pleasantly surprised.

    The front page is temporarily offline as we are working on getting the forum setup and properly configured. It will be back in the next week or two.

    I have no idea what Xenforo is, but I trust that it will be good. The upgrades have always been good. Thanks to everyone involved!

    I'm used to xenforo forums so it's not as much of a shock for me. You'll get used to it in no time. The mobile experience is 100x better.

    Tho the forum isnt working properly for me on PC atm, I just got an error message (tho oddly I could access this thread via a notification when finomenal quoted me) so I guess Henrik and Bill and still working

    I don't think the site is compatible with taptalk anymore, (would need to check with Bill tho) the mobile system is so good on Xen that Tapatalk isnt really needed anyway

    Yea I cannot edit either (Accidentally hit reply in another thread with a bunch of jibberish that I cant fix). Other than that the mobile experience is great.

    Is it just me that gets

    "
    FinHeaven - Error
    The requested page could not be found."

    When you try to open www.finheaven.com on a pc? Works perfectly on my phone! Tho I am writing this on my PC so it is possible to get around the error

    Getting the "requested page could not be found error" on the somewhat outdated Firefox 48.0.2 but not the way outdated Safari 6.1.6 browser (both on Mac).

    Think I'll like it, but I already miss the lines separating posts. I'm an old guy and maybe It'll take longer to get used to it. I DO like the new look.

    The five font seems more like it should be the standard over the default what apppears to be about a 4.5.

    Overall the forum looks cleaner but I'll have to get used to the smaller font and light pink separation line between posts. Thanks for the hard work.

    Yes, everyone should have Tapatalk issues.
    Tapatalk was a band aid to get some mobile functionality to the old forum software. With all the new mobile features with the new software Tapatalk is no longer needed. :)

    I love how easy it is to post now. Notified on a finheaven app? or in the website when I open it? Also, how do you search for peoples posts? I like to search recent posts by certain members. thank you!

    I am not sure if you know this, @Henrik, but you'll have the ability to add a counter to the "new post" link. This will wreck havoc for this with OCD (like myself), but I find it helpful knowing the amount of posts yet to read. The screenshot below is from another sports club forum I visit.
