Last year, there was a security issue with vBulletin, and the FreeBSD Forums switched to phpBB. Since then, we have discovered that phpBB does not support all the features we feel are
needed.

So on October 15, we will switch to Xenforo forum software. Existing user accounts, passwords, and messages will be imported. However, if you do not know your password, or it was
registered from an email account you can no longer use, now is the time to fix that.

As usual, there will be a settling-in time. Please bear with us as we make the switch.

Special thanks to the FreeBSD Foundation, who funded the Xenforo license, and all of the forum users, for their dedication and patience.

It was a fair amount of work for several dedicated forum administrators. Less for me, my role was mostly being the grain of sand in the oyster.
