    There will be some changes that occur over the next 3 weeks that will impact everyones ability to do the things they want to do on the BOC.

    Things will be broke for a period of time, until we get them fixed.

    This fix time, in many cases, will be trial and error.

    Early January is the best time to make radical changes, based on the dip in volume of traffic and competing priorities of the membership.

    A quick run down on the major skinny.

    What: Switching to Vbulletin 4.0.

    Some things that are here now, will not be there when its done. This could affect thanks, reputation, and other social status aspects.

    Why: Keeping up with technology as it moves forward. Move is security based and social based.


    What: Migration to new identity for the BOC.

    Why: Really more than can be typed in a post, and will be explained in better detail in videos launched through TCS. Authority, positioning, current status of the demographic, outside influence, etc.


    What: Star Support program start date has changed to 10 January 2010 V.S. the normal 1 January 2010.

    Why: To many competing priorities during late December early January. The January 10th allows man power to be present to quickly ship USCA packages that have been secured for the star program without any delay.


    What: Repairing burnt bridges.

    Why: Some have seen me slowly repair past burnt bridges with other individuals recently, one being Tim Hagan.

    Where possibly we are going to become more of a pillar of catfishing with a more open and abundance mindset. Our Mantra will be,"Help enough people get what they want, and you will get what you want".

    Sadly there are a few that simply will not be allowed back. Nothing personal, but a turd is a turd, and you have to know when to fire good people for the benefit of the whole.

    Much more stuff, but this is a quick run down to hopefully help prevent the frustration that normally happens in major shifts.

    If you are interested in more of the finer details, be sure and be a member of the Catfish Syndicate http://www.catfish1.com/insider/

    As long as we can still communicate and provide good info and fellowship I'm good with it. Sometimes it sucks to get used to one thing and change to another, but that is how technology works....updates, updates, and yep you guessed it......more updates. Thanks for the heads up Unka Paul. Hope ya don't keep the brothers away too long.

    Of all the changes, What seems will be the biggest impact or for lack of a proper term will be changing to US Catfish Association. I think this will really be representing the way the catfishing community will be heading. That title says "Leader of the Sport" at least to me. I think there is a really good base here and a lot of people to make that next step in the direction Catfishing is headed.

    Just an observation.
