It’s been a few weeks since the original Chromeheads forum software suffered from hacking attempts that were posted on the hosting server; we took down the forum to preserve our 17 years of great info; and the pictures… We love the pictures. You know which color is fastest just by looking at the pictures.

Think of it as an Engine Rebuild. The Moderators are thrilled to announce that the forum files have been converted and nearly all of the existing info made the trip. We have been testing it on a new Forum platform, so you can expect a New Look.

To get here has required many hours of help from Alanz as Administrator, with the help of Moderators Rocketman, DaveR, Enfoman, Michele, and Bobs98.

To keep everything moving quickly and get back online, some of the moderators have paid out of pocket for software and consulting expenses; we had a great conversion team that cut their rates significantly to help us out. There are new operating costs for the forum software subscription that we did not have with our old, dead, platform.

We really want to keep Chromeheads open to all, and do not want to institute a Membership-only or Pay-for-Access model. We are reaching out to the Chromeheads community; you know who you are, and you know the value you receive from the community. We all contribute to the content; now it is our chance to contribute to the “care and feeding” for the new Forum platform.

We are using GoFundMe for the Re-Launch; this allows Contributions to be made anonymously (or, you can brag on the new forum, later), so you don’t even have to be a registered user of Chromeheads. This is a big Startup Fundraiser to help us get back on the road.

We’ve had a great initial 17-year run, and with your help, this community will continue to run like, well, a well-maintained BMW R1200 engine.

We are just a few days away from going Live, so keep  checking  www.chromeheads.org for updates.
