  Deadbeat Buyer Alert!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-06-2017, 05:09 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (6)

All members...please avoid dealings with cobra94svt

This member engaged in a deal with another member and failed to follow through with payment arrangements as promised.  We even contacted him and he once again promised to make good on the payment but after several weeks with zero contact, he still hasn't followed through! 

As always, members are reminded to be extra careful when using this or any online source to buy or sell anything!  It is always buy/sell at your own risk!!  All we can do is put out an alert and ban the deadbeat in hopes of preventing future rip offs!

  photobucket "game over" broken links
Posted by: 72HCODE - 06-30-2017, 12:27 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (14)

i figured i would post this here since it will effect anything and everything that is using photobucket.

Photobucket changed there TOS silently a few days ago they went from a free hoster to a pay site.

they are basically holding your photos for 400$ as that is the cost it takes to re-enable 3rd party linking.

3rd party linking is what allows your photos to be posted inside your threads.

So expect massive broken links to photos in threads from now on until a new free hoster is located.

just a huge heads up 3 of my photobucket accounts are suspended from 3rd party hosting until i pay them 

400$ for the privilege of doing what i have been doing for free for the last 13 years.

brilliant photobucket clap clap

  Forum Upgrade and new theme!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 02-07-2017, 08:04 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (69)

With the new HTTPS Everywhere protocol on the internet, we are faced with a big decision here at 7173Mustangs.com.  The current software is out of date and it is not able to be upgraded easily because of the overwhelming number of custom modifications made to the core software over the years.  

Today's software will not let us become HTTPS compliant...so I am going to need to upgrade to the latest MyBB software.  That in itself is OK and we won't lose any info but the bad part is that it will be a complete site redesign!  It will not look the same as it does right now!  But it will function better, faster and it will be more secure in the new design.  We may lose a few custom features such as the fancy garage layout and such but the data will still be there in regular forum layout.

With the way the internet is today, we need to make a move to simplify the forum in order to make updates more easy...my main goal is to try and NOT lose any of the data and information that we have accrued over the years!

So with that said, I really don't have much choice but to move along with the upgrade...possibly as early as today!  I have been using the new software on some other sites and I do think you guys will like it after the initial shock of change!!  thumb

When I take the site offline for the upgrade, remember to visit the Facebook page for updates on the progress!  I don't see the site being down for more than half of a day.  I just need some time to add the drop down menus and stuff after the initial upgrade.
