Just a quick note to let the community know that while we have finished migrating and upgrading the site, it had been a very long time since we were able to do an upgrade. Consequently, we had to do a bunch of them in rapid succession. Luckily, we were aided by the UBB folks (it's their platform), and most things seem to have gone smoothly.

There is still some tweaking to be done and a few issues to be resolved, so you will probably notice some minor adjustments over the next few weeks. There are bug report threads here and there in the forum - community members are encouraged to let us know if you find anything so we can check it out. We still have a bit of formatting to do, but that should happen pretty quickly.

We're also in the process of adjusting the assortment of the forums. Some older ones have been/will be archived, some have been/will be reactivated, and a few new forums will be lit up shortly.

We will do everything in our power to make sure this place continues to have the same vibe that's made it such an enjoyable hang for so many of us over the last two decades. As always, deepest thanks to the community for your support - you are what makes this place what it is.

More to come - stay tuned.

The changes continue!

• Images can now be attached directly to posts, and uploaded for avatars. Size limits do apply.
• Any thread can now be posted directly to either Facebook or Twitter. The button is at the bottom of the last post in the thread.
• The Archives have been cleaned up a bit, and a few new forums have been added.

Speaking of new forums, for the past few years there have only been a few active communities. That is changing! idea

Three "legacy forums" from the early MPN days are now either active or about to become active: dr walkers psychedelic kitchen has been on for a few weeks, Gus Lozada's Nuestro Foro is about to get lit up again in a few days...and the one that started it all, Craig Anderton's Sound Stage and Studio, has been back at MPN for almost a month.

In addition, we have three new forums: Matt McGlynn, the founder of RecordingHacks.com is at MPN to share his extreme knowledge of mics with us, a couple of amazing mastering engineers named Stephen Marsh and Justin Perkins have joined us to share audio tips and tricks, talk about all things mastering related and even discuss vinyl cutting (Steph has a lathe!)...and a few of our established MPN community members have started a photography forum that is already doing really well.

Please do take a moment to browse MPN's forum offerings, say hi to the new mods, and welcome returning family back home. Leave a post or - even better - start a topic. It's the ultimate forum-warming gift... cool

Thanks so much to everybody for all your support! wave
