Don't worry, the message board itself will remain the same or very similar.  Ease of use will be the primary factor. 

Most of the changes will be around the rest of the content, utility, having guest contributors, the overall feel of how the COBF community developed over 18 years, and an upgraded more modern look and feel. 

Cheers!

I see the site switched to https.

It seems like comment editing is broken though. I can post comment. But when I try to post edited comment, "Save" button throws up warning and pressing "Continue" does not post the edited changes.

Same here.

Whew!  Now I can sleep well at night because obviously I use the same password for COBF as I do for all of my financial accounts!  Given the angst and hand-wringing about HTTPS, it would seem that I am one of many who just uses one single password for all of my accounts.   :P

The problem is that increasingly, all browsers will stop supporting plaintext connections, so the switch had to be made if only for that reason.

While we are somewhat on the topic of forum improvements, there is one item that has been bugging me for a while.

When posting images using the (img)(/img) tags, many times the resulting image size is simply too large to be displayed reasonable in a browser window. So instead of actually inserting the image I would just paste the link, which opens up another browser tab.

It's not a big deal, but is it possible to incorporate some scaling factor to reduce the size by X% and therefore make it comfortably visible?

I'm not sure if it's even feasible but I just thought I'd mention it.

You can put size tags on it.  img width=400 or something like that. 

Example here is a picture with width=400:


here it is with no width tag:
