    Co8.org is scheduled to be offline for 2-3 hours on Saturday, April 23, 2016, starting around 3:00 p.m. GMT. This is for the forum software switch to XenForo. When the site comes back online, you'll need to log back in with your Co8 user ID and password.

    The new XenForo forum skin will initially be a default skin that's generally similar to the Co8 Obsidian skin. We'll tweak it afterward to look as similar and distinctive and pleasing as possible, although there are many elements of XF that are just different, such as positioning of 'Who's Online' lists and so on.

    Overall the experience should be pleasing while not all that much different, ultimately - the same forums will all be here in all the same places, all threads and posts will be retained, and the functionality of the site will be a bit more slick and modern while adding enhancements to security and sustainablity. We hope you enjoy it. :)

    If you're reading this, then you're on the new forums. ;)

    Just FYI, we'll be tweaking and modifying things to bring the look more in-line with what we're accustomed to, so please bear with us. It might be a somewhat gradual process. :)
