Software Upgrade

Post by Dude » Sun Sep 07, 2014 1:23 pm

Everyday that goes by it is just more and more likely that vbulletin will crap out on us, and I guess that is starting to bother me more.
So I have some time so I am going to start working on upgrading the software to SMF.

1. Avatars
From what I have been reading your avatars may not make it, so make sure and save a copy of your avatar, or the link to it.

2. Private Messages
Your private messages will probably not make the upgrade, so if you have anything you want to keep make sure and copy it now.

3. Email address
Check your email address, because after the upgrade you will probably have to have a new password emailed to you. This is a security measure to try and make the new forum more secure after the upgrade.

So at some point as soon as I can get everything ready I will pack up the database and move it to the new location.

Webscout has already started loading up some stuff to get ready for the move.

OK.. so am I looking at the new forum software with the "I am the new one" link? It appears to be a strip (about 1/3 of the width of my screen) down the middle with nothing on either side.. looks more like "yet another skin".. I'm afraid I'm not impressed

Hobby, your seeing into the future again,
if you come to the united states any doctor will be able to prescribe you handfuls of pills to try and correct this situation.
otherwise you just need to wait for a little longer when I have a block of free time that I can work some more on the software upgrade.
hopefully it won't be too much longer.

I have to travel to the kingdom of Far Far Away and talk to the king about a couple of things, and that can take a while.

at some point this software will poop out and stop working, then there won't be a choice.
