We are Moving!

Dear Honda Foreman Community Members,

Over the past year, there have been updates to your community environment that have introduced challenges in usability and performance. We sincerely apologize if you have been negatively impacted. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface, and site performance has revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software on the site. Once we started looking at how to address these issues, it became clear that we needed to determine how to fix the underlying problems.

We needed to improve user experience, site speed, and overall performance, all while providing a secure environment for you to interact with your community. For the past few months, we have been actively seeking a resolution to these issues.

We are excited to announce that we are upgrading your site!! We have been working with a design and product development team that has enhanced Xenforo software to provide a modern and much better-performing platform. Our goal is to deliver an experience that better fits the current and growing long term needs of your community.

The new platform is designed for efficiency, stability, and to be user-friendly across all devices, including mobile. More time can be spent engaging, sharing, and contributing to your favorite community no matter where you are!

This is just the first stage of the new platform and we look forward to hearing your feedback as we make regular and timely improvements.

Thank you for all your support!

Dear Community Members,

We have posted previous messages announcing a new platform coming to your community that will provide a better experience, faster page speed and work seamlessly across all devices, including mobile. We are excited to announce that Hondaforeman.com will be migrated to our new platform on Tuesday, September 3rd. The site will be in maintenance mode and in read-only while the migration is happening. This is expected site behavior as we move all the archived content over to the new sites. There should be no change in the content within your profile. All thread content will also be migrated to the new site. Your community may look a little different but all of the important information will still be there!

If for any reason there is a change of date, we will keep you updated on an alternative rollout schedule for the site migration. We look forward to your feedback on the new experience.

We appreciate your support!

Hello all,

There were some additional complications with the migration of the community and we have rolled the site back until we can investigate further.

We have pushed the date back to TBD for now and will announce once we know more.

If this change is anything like what has happened over at Hondaatvforums.net, I hope you will NOT change this board.


That forum has become a ghost town because those of us who have been on there daily trying to help people cannot stand the new format, and refuse to use it. When all of your moderators leave a board, you know you've REALLY screwed it up.


I'm a lifetime member here. I check this board daily. If it is changed to the same format as hondaatvforums I won't be back. That new format SUCKS.

@toodeep, not sure if you have any pull with this. On the other board the mods all complained and were ignored, so they left, along with all of the regular contributors.

Same people own HondaATVForum that own this site , they just restructured the other site and seems it died a very quick death , all the moderators and most of the most active and best members split ---amazing on how fast it went down ----would think the same thing is going to happen here as soon as they change formats
