From Mike:

After a very long process, I am happy to announce there is new forum software open to the public at:

forum.ironbutt.org

Due to the demand for phone-friendly apps, this software version was chosen as it will work on most smart phones (try it with Tom's article) and has countless other upgrades that admins are now learning and testing. 

Due to design differences and the cost of custom software to make the move, we are NOT moving over old posts from the current forum. However, the current forum will be available for viewing until December 31, 2019 when those licenses expire. At that time the database will be archived into a simple text format so we have a way to search it, even if it won't be pretty to view.

Feel free to go create an account on the new system.

Between now and the end of February we will swop over all the current threads (RTE BBR BBT BBL ICENI ) and close the old threads with a link to the new. So go ahead and register and post new stuff on the new forum.
Until they are moved use the threads above on the old forum.
From the 1st March we will only be using the new forum

Has the issue with the email to AOL accounts been resolved so those of us using AOL for email can get the activation email?

When are things going to be locked down here as far as posting goes. Also is the link to the forum from the ironbutt.org going to shift over at some point?

I've asked Mike for the answers, but I would venture that it will be a little while before we curtain new posts and change the link.

Mike says the old Forum will stay up for at least another couple of months.

The link to the old Forum will stay until it's retired in 2020, but with a link to the new Forum added.  The will allow the innumerable links to various posts on the old Forum to continue to work.

I've tried to join the new forum without any luck. At the top it says "Your account is currently awaiting confirmation. Confirmation was sent to....".

I've received no such "Confirmation" email???

Am I doing something wrong?

I'm the main person doing the approvals.  I do, however, have a life outside of approving Forum registrations (yes, I know it's hard to believe :-)), so from time to time the approvals will not be instantaneous.  You're now good to go.

My account still says "Your account is currently awaiting confirmation. Confirmation was sent to...."

Just clicked on resend and nothing after about 10 minutes
