I had mentioned this before, but I'll cover it again.

The forum/web site was moved to a completely new server, and as such, everything has changed, from the mail servers, to the site certificates, cookies, etc.

What this means is no, you don't have to sign in again, create a new account, or what not.

You probably have to clear your cookies, and then accept the new ones when they are provided.

If you use blocking software, you will have to add modelcarsmag.com to your safe or whitelist.

This also goes for your email.

You may not be getting email notifications now from the forum, or so you think.

They are probably now filtered by your email, IP, hosting provider, or other such spam, cookie, or other filtering program.

You will need to check your SPAM, Junk Mail, or other such area in either your email program, or if you use a web-based email system/program, check the SPAM/Junk Mail/Bulk Mail folders for the emails from the forum/web site, and then add those to your "safe" or trusted emails/web sites.

The certificate for the forum/web site has changed, and it needs, or your computer needs, to know that it's from a legitimate source, again.

I have put the required/requested processes in place to have the rdns and other mail protocols set up to accept the new server as a good/trusted one.

They said it would take 24-48 hours, and that was a couple of days ago, so hopefully it should all be working now.


If this all sounds greek, or geek, to you, don't worry, it's worse to me....

I am learning along the way, and with David's patience with me, we are getting things done.

It's a really good learning experience, and it's been pretty neat to learn how this thing actually works behind the scenes.

I give a huge hat's off to all you computer IT guys that are laughing at me now, I never had any idea of the brain cells needed to do what you guys do.


So, check your SPAM/JUNK/Bulk Mail folders, and see if the emails are there.

You may have to dwell deeper in your settings if the emails still don't come through.


I do get the email notifications, so I know it works on my end, on a Mac.

For a PC, I'm lost....

I did the cookie that Gregg suggested and I'm up and running with email notifications.  I just love it when a plan comes together. 


Thank you so much, Gregg, for keeping the most bestest model forum running.  (Does that help with getting an MCM gold watch?)

Gregg, you know man.. you cut the down time very very close with me LOL. To be honest, that other site with this one being down for over 10 days got to me and called me in to where I registered over there and left a post at! Next day something told me to check this site back out to find out the forum just came back up that morning. That was a very close call for me. I'm still going through my settings on here yet. This new forum platform you guys are on now is alot better. You won't hear me complaining to much. I don't need notices as I get on here on a daily basic to check things out. Keep up the great work there my friend.

Nothing in my junk or deleted files here but what I thought was (IS) spam and junk mail! I'm looking forward to some new e-mail activity now. Hope it's good stuff.

I wasn't sure where to ask this or who to ask. Im having problems with the site all the sudden. If I make a post and click the post button nothing happens. I have to click the more reply options and hit the add reply button from there. well then if I wanna go back and edit the post it'll let me choose edit but when I get to the part where I can edit and do what I need to do and click submit it just keeps giving me some error. so there for im unable to edit anything. any ideas??? Mike

I've been getting error messages on some of the posts. I've emailed the provided link twice and still have not heard back yet.
