Thought I'd share a sneak peak of the new website with everyone. I was hoping it'd be live by now, but things have required more development time than I first thought. So instead of giving you all a half-baked system, I've kept it in development a bit longer.

In the screenshots:
- New home page layout, forum middle-top, then build blogs, media gallery, events, clubs/lakes, new harbour boats, a new section for how-to articles and useful links.
- How-to articles can be edited
- Useful links can be posted on their own
- Any member can follow any other member
- Forum threads as well as blogs can be followed
- New events section, with calendar and map
- New places section, also with map
- Cleaner layout for forum threads and blogs
- Completely refreshed mobile app
- New ranking system (some of you will change rank, but it'll remain fair to who has contributed the most)
- Easier login, easier uploading of files, easier posting in general
- Faster website, all database queries have been restructured to provide fast responses
- New notifications area showing all updates to everything you're following

There's a tonne more, I do think you'll all love the new site once it's live. Still don't want to promise dates, but when it's ready, it'll launch!

Many thanks again to everyone who supports this website. Without this, we'd have sunk years ago!

Hi Stephen.
I was beginning to wonder what was happening with the new site after you 'teased' us just before Christmas🤔.
I'm looking forward to the launch 👍😁.
