Welcome to the new V8Central Forums and site
« on: May 09, 2021, 07:15:52 PM »
Almost 20 years ago there was an idea to start a new site - times have changed, some things I don't really want to talk about but ask the question if you want and I'll see if I answer.

Today, we've launched the new forums and site.  Please bear with us while we get everything sorted it, it will get better over time and everyone can help us make the forums great again.

I have never seen the word Newbie under your name before Laser... :)

Looking forward to a renewed interest from myself and many others.

V8CFL Tsar is on board.  It is going to be a rocky road, but if I can get all of the historical V8CFL data back, my stats will rival YOURS, Kye!

It's great to actually see a V8 Central again rather than the error code staring at you.

Here's to bigger and better things and hopefully one day Laser will get access to all the old stuff!

So what do the coloured boxes just above the avatar pic mean ??

some have 5 red boxes while others have a single yellow box.

I think there's yellow, green, blue and red.
They denote different levels.
They correspond to different levels of achievement.
Yellow is for forum members, red is for admins and green is for mods.

Hope that helps.

Hi all!
I’m back and kept the same username  :)

So what happened with the old forum?

Forum is a much more modern look, well done laser and thanks.

Liking the new look and the site is faster. Cheers to Laser for keeping V8 Central going.

Only bug I encountered when I first logged in, I couldn't post or log out saying my session expired. I cleared the cookies and logged back in, all is fine now.
