    Good morning and happy new year to everyone, we've made it through another year that for me kind of flew by fairly quickly overall, and with many ups and downs...Here at Alien Expanse we are fast approaching our 4th full year of existence which I want to thank all of the membership of AE for making that happen, I for one love this place and it is because of all of you...I'm looking ahead now into 2020 and there is much work to be done here, good work it is...We are setting up a timetable for updating the forum software to the new 2.1 Xenforo version, last year there was just too much going on for me to put the time needed but this year and before Summer this will happen...As soon as I have this timetable in place I will post it here so everyone knows whats involved and a date for this change that we will hold to...I am also investing into advertising across the internet so others find us and know of us, to assist in building our membership and footprint on the internet...Also there are plans to expand our forum with a new and amazing additional site, I want to keep some of the details to this under wraps for the moment but very soon after the forum upgrade, but I can tell you this, that I will be working with one of the top UFO researchers and another member of AE to bring this great idea to a reality...When the timetables are set for this to be developed I will also post that for all to see...

    Thank you all so much for being here at AE and making this place a true gem on the internet, my most favorite place to be online...You all are the best!...

    Best regards,
    nivek

    Thanks Nivek for providing this platform for us all,you deserve so much credit.I find it to be the most interesting site to visit and find something new every day.The members are without a doubt the most reasonable and mature bunch I've met online.Though we can all sometimes disagree it is always done most civilly without pettiness and vitriol.There are any number of super smart people here and I've learned so much. Best wishes to one and all in 2020 and long may AE thrive and flourish.

    What could make this a truly momentous year is for an ET {extraterrestrial} to post at least one post
    - A post that will make us think twice - Is he of isn't he? - Another charlatan or the genuine article?

    We already know no one here will believe this hypothetical alien and will say it's a clever joker
    trying to steal some attention.

    And maybe 'aliens' want it that way.

    I have in the past posted reasons why no advanced civilization or its representatives would give you
    out and out disclosure - Yes, it's complicated, but say what you want - but the Human mind is still not
    capable of accepting advanced intelligence.

    Take for example religions and its so called revelations - And all the wars and bloodshed that followed.
    That historically goes back thousands of years.

    And we ask you Human - Has your species yet evolved sufficiently?
    Or would 'Disclosure' only cause you to polarize further and develop new reasons to
    to turn on each other and on Us ???

    Happy New Year Human - Ready for a new paradigm? An upgrade to your existent matrix?

    - AlienView

    And a very happy new year to you Nivek. and the same to all members on this the greatest of all of the paranormal forums! ...it may not be the biggest, but imho it is without doubt the very best place to come to learn and discuss things that are personally fascinating with both like minded folk and people with opposing thought trains almost always in a conducive atmosphere.
    I admit that I haven't contributed much by way of postings over the last 12 months or so and merely lurked a lot , but that is merely down to the ups and downs of my personal life and nothing to do with anything else related to the site whatsoever , and plan to be a lot more present in the near future. [i'll convince you fools that the ETH is real yet. lol]
    ...and as for you changing things around here Nivek… well you do just what you have to do old friend, but for heaven's sake dont change too much and lose that 'family feeling' that we all enjoy around here. :tumbsup:

    ps... the very best of luck in all of your future endeavours matey.

    Cheers.

    I am loyal to only here and an Islamic forum, they like me. I have seen the hub is back up and wish them well.

    Funny how I see a political divide between the two as if on cue somehow. I guess that's how it forms without us really knowing.

    To all the women who scorned me for not being able to trust me, if it wasn't a get out clause then you made a big mistake.

    Like a dog to man.

    I added a poll on this thread, its anonymous if you could tick the themes/styles you use the most out of the five we have available...We're going to have at least as many to choose from when the upgrade occurs, I could make a couple of them similar to the most popular ones we use now if you would like, then we have a good mix of original and new styles...Right now I have three new styles I've purchased, one of them i really like a lot, it will look amazing once its tweaked and customized, I'm excited about that one lol, it was also the most expensive one of the three haha...So if you could tick the poll boxes, I have no idea which of our styles/themes are used the most, if I had to guess it would be the default one, Hydrogen...

    Is there someplace we should look so we can compare those styles? But my hunch is that if you see a style that excites you, we'll probably dig it too.

    I'll set up a link when they are close to being completed for a sneak peek...q37

    Also I have a new style for our current use here, it has the look and functionality of Xenforo 2.1 but is made for our current forum version...I'm setting it up to look similar to the Hydrogen style, I thought it would be useful to try out to get a feel for the new styles coming...I should have it completed and online for anyone to use within about 10 days, it will be added to the list of others currently available when completed...

    Its the end of summer and I am two-thirds of the way completed with the forum upgrade project...Writing the first post in this thread back on the first day of 2020, I obviously had no idea the events that were going to take place this year, some of which has slowed and/or changed my life and lifestyle and plans...

    Anyway we are on track, a little behind but on track, all server work has been completed and the new forum software configuration is 60% completed...I estimate completion of the software in 2 to 3 weeks and we will go live with it soon after...

    I'll post more updates soon and as we get closer to the change...

    Are you on 1.5 or 2.1 ? I know 2.2 is due out sometime in the future.

    Our current version is 1.5 and we're upgrading to 2.1, I've had 2.0 on my server at home working on it and just brought it up to 2.1, we will go live with 2.1 and the 2.2 version will be an easier update from there...
