***Announcement***

We've switched back to vBulletin
As you may have noticed, we have switched back to vBulletin as our discussion forum software. There were many factors surrounding this decision for the change, but the final decision was based upon one primary reason,

The overwhelming consensus and wishes of our forum members is to return to using vBulletin


We’ve already upgraded to the latest version of vB and we’ve also upgraded our PhotoPost Photo Gallery to the newest version for a more enjoyable experience when participating on MeguiarsOnline.com At this time, the C.S. forum will be archived until we can import the databases into our vBulletin based forum.


What this means to you…
If you were a member of our “original” forum then all you have to do is log back in using your original Username and password. If you cannot remember your Username and/or password then you can have your Username sent to you and have your password reset by clicking the link below and then entering the e-mail address you used when you joined the original forum.

Re-send Username and Re-set Password (http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/login.php?do=lostpw)


If you were never a member of the original forum then you’ll need to register as a new member by visiting this link.

Register with Meguiar's Online (http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/register.php)


We apologize for any inconvenience and/or confusion but we know going forward that the best long term solution for our online community is to return to vBulletin for our forum software.

Questions?

Great news!

It will be nice having all the great MOL information back in one location again, once the archives from the C.S. forum are imported.

Thanks.

So all those charts and files and cool things some of us made should be reposted here or is everything coming over?

vBulletin should speed things back up.
I am glad to see the threads and such will be brought over so none of that information is archived rather.
I just miss my post count now (not that it matters...) :(

Thank You, I used to fall asleep waiting for the other forum to load. At my age time is a great commodity!

Sorry if I'm missing something... but are all of the posts / threads, etc. that were on the other forum going to be converted over to this new forum? I'd hate to lose all of that valuable information...

Our Webmaster Ross is going to try to import the threads on the CS forum over to here. At this time there is no importing software to import from CS to vB so it's going to take some time. Until then, if there's a post you over here you can always copy and paste it yourself.

I like this message board much better, it's much easier to figure out what topics you've visited and jump right to the newest posts. It was too hard to do that on the other message board.

Perhaps someone who's been successful in creating a decent-quality Avatar can assist me in setting mine up... I've saved the photo in as low a quality and small a size as needed to get to/below the 29.5mb size limit, and my avatar looks horrible compared to the others in this thread. How did you guys get such a high quality avatar?

Thanx Mike for the change back to the original format w/vB. I'm even able to use my original screen name/signature & upcoming avatar. Great decision & results as always enjoy the upcoming holidays. BTW are you going to post you christmas tree pix for those of us who look forward to it & those who never saw it? Hope so!

I can't tell you how happy I am to see this. I had so much trouble using the other software that I just gave up. This was really disappointing since this is the best forum on the web IMO. I feel like Santa came early this year.

Thank you,

Jim

#1 - Thank God we finally changed back to vBulletin. The other software was so bad that I rarely used the forum to post, only read.

#2 - Please stick with vBulletin and don't change to something else again. Losing posts because of software hopping *****.

Thank you so much!!!!! Meguiar's does listen to its customers! We've been reunited with a source of information worthy of having the Meguiar's name on it. :)

I really like the new (old) forum. For those on dialup it, it is quicker since you have to navigate through fewer menus. I visit more often again. I just select "New Posts" and that is it.

I see you took my advice, and even went for the front splash page software - pretty cool right? :)

Actually, we've been using vBadvanced for a couple of years now and before that we were using a similar CMS, can't think of the name off hand.

That's correct, simply click on the MOL Logo in the upper left hand corner on any forum page and it will take you back to the homepage.

In fact you can click on the image above and it will take you to the homepage.

Mike,

Is it possible to change Zoomer back to WrightDetail ? If it is thanks in advance, if the pic of the Tucson is still with it, omit it, sadly my baby got totalled in accident 12/15/07....so on the search for replacement.

thanks again

Sure.

Just to note, posting a request like this to page 5 of a thread usually isn't as effective as sending me an e-mail for a name change.

Ohhh, I just noticed the change! I wanted some info on the new 105 and bam!

I clicked on "New Posts" immediately and the number was astonishing over 15.400...

But I'll put MOL back into my daily routine. GREAT!
