We're back, and better than ever!

Hey everyone. We’re back!

We spent the last few weeks getting our software upgraded from 2005-spec vBulletin to this shiny, new version. For the first time in half your CB7’s life, is running up to date forum software! 😃
We sought to keep the same general feel, along with our beloved black and orange color scheme. You may see some things changing here and there as we make some aesthetic tweaks, but all should be running smoothly now.

In addition to looking all fancy, this new version should be extremely mobile friendly. Hopefully that will make it more enjoyable for those of you that do most of their browsing on their phone!

Pandemic and cp[mike] literally busted their asses over the last couple of weeks to make this new software a reality. Without them, this never would have happened.

So, welcome back!
Feel free to ask any questions, give us your observations, and offer suggestions (no promises on implementing anything, but who knows!) There's a post for discussion in the Beginner OT section of the site.
Also, if you experience any weird errors, please let us know ASAP. We tested everything pretty thoroughly, but I’m certain we haven’t squashed all the bugs just yet.

Read the rules:

Myself, and the other mods have been very nice and lenient with the rules. We have been deleting threads, and giving out warnings. Some members didn't get the clue and re-posted over and over... Now ANY member buying or selling in this section will be banned... No IF's AND's or BUT's.

Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:
Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

    We're back! What does everyone think?

    We've got some fancy new software, eh? It's long overdue. I think this will make things much more enjoyable, especially for anyone browsing on a phone. The old software was very NOT mobile friendly.

    We'll probably be making some tweaks here and there to the colors and layout to make things look better. We are up and running, and barring some unforeseen crazy glitch, we'll stay that way. Thanks to everyone for their patience, and thanks to Pandemic and cp[mike] for making quick work of the terribly complicated beast that was this upgrade!

    Looks good...


      Not too bad! Thanks for updating the site. I was having withdrawals not being able to access the information!


        Thanks for fixing everything!

          Going to take me awhile to get used to all this stuff after nearly 16 years! That said, I am not sure if you know, but the classifieds might not be working correctly. It keeps taking me back to th main forum page when I click on them.

            This is great to see guys! Been a minute since I've been around, but the changes are impressive.

            Hope all is well with you all, kept meaning to drop in and check on everyone through Covid19.

            Keep safe guys and the new site looks great Mike

            If at first you don't succeed, Try again. Don't give up too easily, persistance pays off in the end.


              I wish I could post something other than beginner section.

                  I like it! Love that you kept the functionality the exact same as it used to be. Too many site have too many changes when updating forum softwares and the ease of use actually goes down. I've considered what platform I'm going to move to and I was kinda set on xenforo or ipb hosted, but this vb5 looks is really nice--just like the old stuff we're used to.

                  I still have my CD9 Accord and acquired my friends CD7 many years ago. Seeing all this stuff brings the love for these awesome cars back in full force.

                    Is there a way to retrieve all my subscribed threads?


                      I don't like it.

                        There are some annoyances I've found (I can't find a way to go to the last page of a thread without typing it), but I love that it's fresh and getting more people back around here.
