• We’re running on a new server at a new host with a new forum software called XenForo. Some things are different. Some things may not work as expected. I am working on it as fast as I can. Please be patient. Please read this post.
  • I'm going to be working on the forums for a while. Things may be wonky. I may turn the forums off without notice. Consider this a bit of a public beta test as we figure out the new software and make adjustments. But you've been much missed, and we can't wait to see you again!

Thank you, and welcome back!

It's going to take a bit for the new software to become as second-nature as the old V-bulletin software was, but I have faith we'll get there.

I did want to take a moment to offer my sincere gratitude to everyone who has offered their support, their assistance, and contributed financially to this upgrade. We wouldn't be here without all of you.

And finally, my profound thanks to Medievalist (AW Admin) for her herculean efforts that made this happen.

Welcome back to AW, all!

Cheering you all on!
So much faster, and I already see people here who had been avoiding AW for its slowness before the switch!

I spent a lot of time optimizing the database and UI, and we had a knowledgeable paid consultant, and the new host is running on high end software. One of the reasons I changed hosts (again) last Tuesday was because of this host's hardware and level of support.

So good to be back. Thanks to all who worked so hard to get the site up and running again. Definitely does seem a lot quicker. :)

V-Town, check it out yo
I belong to a couple of message boards that use Xenforo. I think it is an outstanding platform with great capabilities, and it should serve AW well. Glad to see that the forum is back up and running.
