Welcome to the upgraded message board!

Postby Brian CC » Tue Aug 26, 2008 12:28 am

First step of this new project was to upgrade the message board software.

There will be a few quirks until I get everything tweaked properly but is should be usable.

When I dumped the database, there was a period of about 4 hours where some new posts were made. Unfortunately those didn't make it over.

Pease make note of any bugs and post them in this thread. That will make life easier on me. :)

I'll be letting you know about new features of this board once I get everything setup properly.

Looks good Brian. Any idea when everything will be done? I'm really looking forward to the new site design.

I'm just getting started on things and there is a ton to do so at the moment I can't give you a time line.

For now getting this done was a process, so I am off to bed!

As part of the maintennance, I purged all inactive accounts from the database. Anyone that had zero posts or had an inactive account was removed.

So if you were a lurker, who's never posted, your account was deleted.

Sorry, but you'll have to re-register, but it was the only way to get rid of the spam accounts.

Other items:

- Avatars need to be restored
- Smiles need to be restored
- Board design will be changing
- If you are having troublesd logging in, clear your cache and cookies and that should resolve it.

Looking good, any chance you could up the 6k limit on an avatar. That's pretty tiny in todays internet.
