Dear Community Members,


We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that KiaSoulForums.com will be migrated to our new platform on Tuesday, July 30th. The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!


If for any reason there is a change of date, we will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.


We appreciate your support!

Thanks for the heads up Ed.

This will be a new chapter in "Somebody Moved My Cheese." Should be interesting :)

Eh, is this change responsible for my having just been notified that my post won't appear until it's moderated? I don't think I've done anything recently to piss people off.

Edit: it didn't do that to this post, just the one I made a few minutes ago.

The attachment or setting of the moderated condition is being controlled by the software and does not refer to pissing anyone off. Sorry about that, I clear them when I find them.

While not overtly breaking, this software is in on the decline. Some features have broken, it's not easy to customize, and what isn't breaking is becoming harder and harder to maintain. The software we are using was released in 2009. It's developer moved on to the next version back in 2012 and there is no more work being done on their end to repair bugs, the only updates being Security based.

Kevin,
While we are waiting, some messages and some members are getting "messages need approval" and then show up on my and Buzz's screens as "Moderated" and we have to approve them. I don't see a pattern, kind of random. Can you take a look and see if there is something you can do about it?

Looked into this and if it's the user's first 5 posts, it will get put in the moderation queue.
Especially if it has a link, image or a large amount of text.

Thank you but these are seasoned members with hundreds if not thousands of posts. I expect it from the new users so that is not the problem.

I get a pop up saying I'm banned-no reason given-under my username I have used since 2013(nick1946)

I had my old account SoNic67 banned with no explanation. Had to make this one just to post here. Is this a glitch or...?

View attachment 121311
be aware that this also happened to me over the last couple of days, it also happened to sube too, so it's not an isolated case. I contacted the site (fortunately you can do it while "banned") and just got notified that it's been fixed - they sorted it for me within a couple of hours of me notifying them. And does work otherwise I could not post this message.

If you log out you can still view the site and if you get the message go to the "Contact us" at the bottom of the site page to state your problem https://www.kiasoulforums.com/sendmessage.php
Initially I was not aware of this so was trying to do things from other forums, just doing various checks and finally found it - don't always go to the obvious first :joyous: I was thinking about doing what SoNic67 did and create a new account to let people know what is happening and to see if there was a fix.
