Forum software upgrade!

Postby rustyslide » Thu Dec 13, 2007 8:31 pm

I'll be disabling the forum for a few minutes at 2200 UTC (the east coast of the US is UTC-5, work out your local time), as the first part of a software update.

More info as I make it up. Cheers!

Ok, we're up and running!

I'll worry about the look over the next few days.

If anyone has any issues, I'll be putting up a contact form later to let me know. Stay tuned.

This is just the default theme. I will be exploring other things, though if nothing else I will make this one darker.

Much better: it's all legible, and the ghost of Billy Marsh no longer lurks pretentiously large.

Rusty,
Would it be possible to make external links open in a separate tab?
That way, we can keep our "unread" threads marked accordingly. I know I didn't phrase that very well, I'm trying to fight my way out of a disorienting fug, induced by a nasty cold virus. I feel terrible!

Maybe a "Wish List" would be a good idea... Or not... (It would, after all, add yet another forum to the 367 already in existence. Hmmm.... Is that a suggestion, I'm making).

Fair do's: the Suggestions and Moans forum is the obvious place for requests and ideas about the board - once the digital dust has cleared, and Rusty has relaxed from juggling umpteen Gigaballs.

Stum': Not so bad, mate. Had to give up twanging because of worn out thumb and finger joints, treated with NSAIDs (the pain, that is), which caused gastric mayhem and various tube-down-your-throat-oscopies... Oh dear: I'm still under the influence of one of those mass-printed "What we have been doing" letters in a Christmas card.
It started with something like, "Hi, everybody, we hope you are all well and wish you a merry Christmas", and continued with an A4's-worth of the ailments - recurring, chronic or merely temporary - that they'd all suffered in the past 12 months. Ill-mannered? Definitely - it's not Christmas yet.

Hey - how about a "Favourite Grumbles" board?

Meanwhile - well done, Rusty. Thank you for what I am sure has been a storm of midnight oil-burning, nail-biting, internet-cursing, nerve-shredding, brow-furrowing...

I'll get my coat.
