2019 Forum Software Update

Post by bipolarmorgan » Tue Jan 01, 2019 1:08 pm

We want to give thanks to all our members and wish you all a Happy New Year this 2019!

Also, we have some additional news regarding a software upgrade we will be performing this month. There will be 2-3 days where the site will be offline unfortunately while performing the upgrade. I'm working with the moderators to narrow down an exact time frame, however, it is tentatively planned for mid month this January 2019! This new upgrade will get the forum software to the newest version, which will cause some changes to a few things. So far, during testing, I've been able to get most of the important add on features updated as well for the new version, ie: the thanks feature and some moderator functions. I've also been adjusting the new style to look similar to the existing site as it is now. Hopefully after the update we will see even less errors than before and I'm hoping it improves load times overall as well.

That's all for now, we will keep you updated as we narrow down the dates for this much needed upgrade.

GOING OFFLINE AT MIDNIGHT!

I will miss being here during those days, but thanks a lot for giving the site an upgrade! It definitely needs some tweaking to fix bugs :D

Happy New Year! Will miss you guys while it's offline but I am sure it will be worth it and we'll have plenty to catch up on and discuss once it's back. Thanks for all your hard work :)

No more double or triple posting? Site crashing in the middle of posting? Having to re-do Captcha 300 times in a row? Slow loading?
WOOHOO! Merry New Year!

Teddy, am I correct in assuming that, if the site is down, it also includes our private messages are also down? (Sorry if that’s a dumb question). Also, will we lose our posts, histories, messages, etc?
