Attention all: New Site
Ladies and Gentlemen, at some point in the next few weeks, a completely new version of Back Henry Street will be launching on a completely custom built platform.

What does this mean for the site?

The site is initially going old school. Stripped of all functionality bar the ability to create threads, and post on those threads not to mention the all important ability for the mods to ban people with the click of a button.

Some of the old functionality that is important will return in stages, private messages, search etc... however they will return with significant improvement. Some functionality may never return however (nobody gives a shit where you sit).

We also have plans for some completely new functionality, some of which will be unique to this forum, not just from a Blackpool FC perspective but for football forums in general. However all this will take time to implement.

From a technical standpoint, the new site is constructed using the newest technology in all its respective fields, code base, database and security allowing for all the planned new features to take shape and to keep your data secure. The new site will be on entirely encrypted protocol and your passwords will be secured with the very latest encryption algorithms.

What does this mean for you?

Over the next few weeks, we need you to ensure your email is your own, and an active email address you can access (you especially QBlock). Why? Because of the new security on the site, all passwords will need to be rehashed and to gain access you will need to reset your login details. The instructions and links to do so will all be sent via email. If you have any difficulty in using a current active email address then please contact an admin now as when the new site goes live we will not be able to change these details. You will be locked out of your account for good.

Also, if there is anybody you normally use the private messaging service to stay in contact with, then for the short term, you may need to find alternative methods of contact on other platforms.

If there are any questions, please ask them below.

Unfortunately not. Hosting and advertising rules still will not allow this, you will have to settle for naked men.

Well allround the world they use satellites and fibre optics to send and receive messages,but in Yarkshire they use two cocoa tins and a piece of string. There is talk of upgrading this system to one that uses pigeons but Yarkshire is that far behind they haven't perfected the art of getting the pigeons to come back home yet.

Bit harsh. They reckon by 2025 as much as 20% of Yorkshire could be using email.

I've tried updating my email address, but when I click on the link provided it says my account doesn't need to be activated. So not sure if my email updated or not? Steed, if possible, please could you PM me the address linked to my account? Just so I can check.

Thanks, looks like it does update even with that message.

Though just to say, the email you get from here does go to spam/junk!

As we are transferring to a whole new platform, will all current content be lost?

What do you think should be saved for future generations?
