Welcome to TFP 5.0

    Some of you may remember when TFP 4.0 came into being. There's been lots of updates that realistically it probably went to TFP 4.7 or something like that.

    With the advent of social media and growth of the internet it really required us to evolve. The latest version of vbulletin which TFP was based on just didn't seem like it fit into the way the web has evolved.

    Not only does the individual have to evolve, but so does the place. New York city was not the same place it is now when I first moved back into Manhattan in 2003. It has changed a lot. I spent the better part of the last year and a half trying to figure out how TFP was going to evolve.

    At this time, this space is invitation only so I'd like to personally thank you for coming over here. It's not like I'm trying to start a super secret club or clique, but I really want to focus on making this experience fresh and exciting for the old timer to the newbie. We still have some work and fine tuning to do, but we're almost ready.

    Ready or not, the doors are closing on TFP 4.0 and opening on TFP 5.0. Normally this was done because the server crashed and there was no backups that could be used. TFP 4.0 has been around since 2003 which is a might long run. Ancient by most standards.

    I need you guys to give it a solid tire kicking before we open the doors. There's still a few things missing like bbcode for spoilers. I hope to open the doors in the next week or two, no more than that.

    It's been locked and the data has to be migrated over.

    Thanks again,

    cynthetiq and the rest of the TFP Staff

    I'm really happy to be here, and excited to get the chance to kick some tires.

    I am NOT a scary driver, I'd just gotten my new TDI and it was fun to drive that way.

    And, I'm not sharing the back seat. I will bicycle kick anyone that tries to get back there with me. I need a nap.

    My standard invitation applies. Anything you need from me (apart from the tire kicking) let me know.

    Pants are never necessary, Jazz. Surely you know this.

    As long as you change your underpants, it's all good.

    I also know how to inspect and change belts as needed.
    And I'm working on how to change the oil.
    But I can do Zaino like a mofo!

    Wait a second, we have to wear pants on TFP? Next thing you know, we will have to SHOWER to get on TFP. Fuck that.
  18. EDEN has to wear pants. Everyone else should be ok.
