    Good evening everyone,

    I am very excited to make a grand announcement: I am moving to Scotland! cheers
    Not to worry though! The forum will continue to operate as is usual (isn't the internet wonderful).

    I have been offered a career opportunity that I simply cannot pass up, and will most likely be returning to Canada in a few short years. Unfortunately, my Sebring will be staying here (in a very nice climate controlled storage) until I return,...

    Good evening guys,

    Just a general notice that I've renewed the ad removal (for forum members) for another year (so until May 22nd 2018).

    Get wrenching!

    Hey guys, can we get more people voting on the poll I set up in the last Forum News post? So far there are only two votes...

    As promised, here is the poll to see if we keep the new classified ads section format.
    I'll leave it up for a few weeks so everyone has time to chime in.

    Cheers

    For those who have always wondered how to post pictures in their messages. I have created a handy tutorial post that you can find in the "New Member's" section here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    I would also recommend to everyone to familiarise themselves with the other icons above the message bar, as there are a whole host of features that you may or may not be aware of. For example: did you know you can...

    Good evening everyone,

    I have enabled the new classified ads function for a trial run. You can access it by going into the regular classifieds section, in which it will appear in a third sub-heading (under the known listings one).

    Another separate option is the enabling of the classified ads widget, which can be seen on the far right of the forum =========>
    Under the gallery widget. This new widget would relay the classified ads to the front page to help their exposure.

    As part of this test I would invite all of you to go try out the new ads section to see...

    Good evening everyone,

    A minor notice to those who may not be up to date with the latest tech trends:

    The google chrome web browser will be transitioning to what is called "https standards" instead of the previous "http" format.
    What this dumbs down to is: google will now use a form of "pre-approval" for website security.
    Therefore, if your internet browser is google chrome, you may receive a small security alert when on a web page that starts with "http" instead of "https" (as does ours).

    Do not be alarmed, this does not mean a site (ours) is not...

    Good evening everyone,

    A few notices for the coming weeks:

    -I have not had time to set up the test run of the classifieds section. I will be doing so after the holiday period.

    -I will be away (to a place with no internet) from now until January 1st, and will therefore not be able to respond to any personal messages or e-mails until then.

    -I am aware there are a few people waiting to have their cars added to the registry. I plan to do this as soon I get back, and I thank you for your patience.

    -I would like to point out that we have almost...

    Good evening fellow Petrolheads!  Very Happy

    I have just recently been made aware of a new function in the forumotion platform that would enable us to have a dedicated "classified ads" section that comes with a bunch of associated tools. In our case it may be useful to sell cars and parts more efficiently than the current "in-forum post" system.

    To be clear: This does not add spam to the forum, it is for us members to list specific Healey-Replica related items...

    Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to a long awaited Spring Wink

    The gallery has now been updated with all the picture's you've sent in and the corresponding storage space has been optimized. I invite anyone who does not have photos of their car in the gallery to send some in to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] so that we call all drool over...

    Good evening fellow members!

    I am proud to announce the completion of a massive overhaul of the forum database section. Very Happy
    You will now find all the documents which you have all contributed by e-mail, as well as relevant ones that have migrated over from the yahoo group by Dave Amos's permission.

    For ease of use I have combined all similar and related files into single documents, put everything in PDF format, and had all the files compressed to minimize data utilisation and to speed...

    Quick notice to all members,

    Forumotion has reported a problem with the servimg servers. Meaning that picture attachments to messages may not work for the next 24-48 hours.

    They are currently working to fix the issue a.s.a.p.

    Good day fellow roadster enthusiasts! I hope all of you have spent amazing and relaxing holidays. santa

    Just an interesting tidbit I thought I would share with you:
    After checking some stats today I noticed that the forum popularity has grown enough for us to be listed at the top of page 2 of google search results for both "Austin Healey replica" and "Austin Healey forum" searches (which are my two go-to checks). This is a big jump from 4 months ago when we were on page 4, 6 months ago when we were...

    This month marks the 1 year anniversary since the creation of this forum. What started out as an empty shell of a site is now loaded with valuable information thanks to all of you. Indeed, thank you all for taking the time to participate and to share your experiences, whether good or bad, so that we may all learn from them. I believe we are blessed with a strong and passionate community.  Smile

    I would also like to point out that last month we surpassed the 100 member mark

    Hello everyone, please note that I will be away on a trip to Europe from May 20th (next Wednesday) until June 21st. The site will continue to function normally, but I may not be able to respond to e-mails and personal messages. I will occasionally check up on the site whenever I have access to a computer, but trust that no issues will arise. If anything does come up, please send a message to the site e-mail address: [You must be registered and logged in ...

    Hi all.

    The website now has a customized favicon that I drew up from scratch.
    If you have no clue what a favicon is, its that little icon to the left of the website address (right next to the forward and back buttons)
    Kind of a picture/icon identifying the site. Ours is now blue (instead of the old green bubble) and reads AHR.
    This also changes the colour of the forward and back buttons.

    It's a small change, but it's all in the details Very Happy

    P.S. The icon may or...

    A notice to everyone, the "comments/suggestions/feedback" section has been moved within the "Forum News" category along with the "Forum News" Blog in an effort to reduce the number of categories appearing on the main page (for easier browsing and less confusion).

    You can now access both the "comments/suggestion feedback" section and "Forum News" blog simply by clicking on "Forum News" category on the main page.

    Cheers!

    A category called "Other" has been created to house both the "classifieds" and the "off-topic sections".

    Always looking to improve

    In a similar fashion to what was done to the "Comments/Suggestions/Feedback" section, the "For Sale/Wanted" & "Known Listings" Sections have been moved into a common category name "Classifieds".

    The idea is to be able to see all the main forum categories at once when logging on to the site without having to scroll down.

    Cheers! Let me know what you think

    Hi guys, the image hosting software (servimg) has just crashed, making both the forum background and banner disappear. This happened while I was playing in the coding so at first I thought it was an error by me. Turns out it has affected other forums as well. I will try to get stuff looking normal again as soon as possible. Cheers!

    -Removed the line under the header saying: Date/Time and Date/Time of last log in. (Much cleaner and I doubt anyone used it)

    -Removed lines under each category listing the moderators for that particular category (Again cleaner look + as of right now I'm the only moderator) (Dave Amos decided to relinquish his position as moderator as it would require learning the site architecture)

    Starting to look pretty good Very Happy

    -The "Saxon Specific Discussion" category has been removed to make the site cleaner and since it was not being used. We did not have sections specific to the MX or 5000, so the saxon may be discussed in the classic-roadsters specific section along with the other models.
    -The "Database" section has been moved out of the "Sebring Sportscars" heading and into the "General" heading.
    -The search bar present in the banner has been removed for a cleaner look. The one still present in the right side-bar (over the gallery widget) serves the same function.

    As you guys can see when you clicked on the "forum news" category today, the layout has changed slightly. It is still used in the same way but is now in blog format. What does this mean? How does this affect me? you might ask.  Question

    Well before, when I posted forum news, you guys were not allowed to reply to my message because the "Forum News" Section was reserved just for what administrators post.

    But Now!

    You guys can now respond in the form of...

    Finally! Although most of you may not have noticed the issue, the forum banner (at the top with the healey silhouette) would repeat on wide screens (I have a 17''). This issue is now fixed, after much research on how to do it manually through CSS code.

    Have a nice day guys

    Hello everyone, it has been proposed recently to create a voluntary registry of Sebrings to keep track of the ownership and changes to our cars. I found this to be a very good idea, which is why those of you with adequate blood coffee levels will have noticed the new button on navigation bar at the top of the page entitled "Replica Registry".

    If you have not noticed it yet, put down the eggnog, take a sip of coffee and look up ^^^^ (It's next to the gallery tab, keep reading before you click)

    The registry is still in the process of being set up, and as such, I am...

    Hello everyone, recently I have found that the image hosting software for this site has become increasingly difficult to use. It seems to only want to upload photos when it wants to, and when it does it is very slow. For these reasons I now recommend that anyone wanting to post their own images within a topic do so via Photobucket (photobucket.com), which is an online photo hosting software that provides what are called "URL"s which can be copy pasted directly into your topic so as to post the photo for everyone to see.

    The site currently uses an integrated software called...

    A notice to all members, I have recently changed my primary computer. Now that I have a 17'' screen, I have noticed that the main banner atop the website has been formatted incorrectly so as to repeat itself on the right hand side when viewed on a wide screen. I will remedy to this issue shortly as soon as I finish configuring my new system. If anyone has noticed any other irregularities I would ask you to please let me know by posting in the feedback section, as I may not be able to see them depending on my computer or browser and wish to optimize the site for a wide array of users.
