Forum Maintenance and Upgrade

Post by Balthagor »

Hello,

Just a quick note that we are making a long overdue security update on the forums this week. The forums will be down from 10AM EST to 2PM EST on Mar 1st.

Thanks!

Does it mean we will get rid of the spambots? If so take all the time you need as honestly they are quite annoying.

The upgrade has been completed successfully. Hopefully this will help with our security issues.

This is something we're keeping an eye on. Reports of performance, responsiveness, issues etc are welcome as we monitor the new install.

I'm finding it extremely difficult to get accustomed to the right to left content shift :-?

It is not something that affect me that much but yes it will take time getting used to.
I will manage however as I so far have not had any issues logging in.
Before the update the board would regularly throw errors at when trying to log in me but so far I have tried 5 times without issue.


Personally the load times appear to be roughly the same for me as before the update but my load times tend to ware most likely due to me accessing the site through a wireless network.

it does not appear the old style is still an option but chances are also that it simply would not work anymore. Themes like so many things tend to need to be upgraded when moving between versions.

I did try and get the old style loaded, but you are correct that it was incompatible. This is the next version of the style.

The fact the post text is now on the LEFT side and the avatar info is on the RIGHT is intentional and not simply a hallucination/Russian hacking side-effect on my end of the Internet, right? :P

First time I have ever seen a board formatted that way. Kinda like it . . .

Maybe if you flipped your avatar so that the eyes looked left and the cigarette went right, then it would be better. :P

PS - but yeah, it is a bit weird. I wonder if it's an option we can change in the style, but then if we take too long to find it people will have gotten used to it this way. And then we'll just start a board flame war :lol:
