Board upgrade!

In case you haven't been checking the Announcements thread on the board, I wanted to let you know that we are about to undergo a major update.

phpBB is coming up with version 3.0. Right now we are running phpBB 2.0.22. Because they need to make sure everything is in working order (as they are writing this script from scratch and they need to test it under all sorts of conditions to make sure it works), the phpBB people have had several Beta releases and after that, what they called Release Candidates (RC).

Every RC coming out is better and has lots of bug fixes, but it is still not perfect. Since these are still not the final thing, they can't offer any guarantees. That's why we're still waiting to do the update. There have been 5 Beta versions and 6 RC's so far.

They still haven't released a stable final version, but the date is getting close, so I wanted to install the current Release Candidate (a version a little bugged) so you can register, open threads and find out what phpBB3 can do. The User Control Panel is pretty neat. We also have the ability to upload files to the C&P server and attach it to a post (all directly from the board).

All these threads and posts will be deleted once we update. All our current database tables will be moved to the new board, so we wont loose posts or personal information.

Let me know what you think

But ... but ... what's wrong with the one we have now?

(Not that the new one isn't gorgeous. Because it is.)

no silly! Don't worry about the appearance, I promise I'll make it pretty!

the blue and phpBB logo crap will go away when I dress it carby. But phpBB3 has all sorts of new buttons and stuff.

the one we are running is too old, too many kinks, a pain to update, and too many security risks. Thats why we get so many spam-users. All of that should get tons better now.

So you could make it look the one we have now?


D'aw. But I love our little bored. With all it's kinks and lack of functions. *sniff*

awww ::pets::

I can make it pretty... no so much the same... but pretty, I promise.

aaaaaaaand, how great is it that we can have attachments with each post (we can have videos and caps and stuff without linking). I promise you'll like the new fancy buttons.

Give the buttons a chance...

I will give them a chance, of course.

It's just so nice as it is now. I'll miss it.

And that is extremly high-tech, Pat. I don't know if I can handle such things.

I'm excited to see it! :)

That sounds like a very good idea. I think I would be able to handle such a thing.


I can't wait to see it when it's done! It'll be so awesome.


Thanks, P.

Heh. I am my friend.


No serously, it's just a couple of pink circles, some pretty filters and a nice font with lighting effects. Takes 3 minutes to make.

Damn, girl.

You're just a genius is all. The new board will need a thread in which we can worship you.

Or something.

Board down since 10/23
Is this why the board has been down since yesterday?

BTW, I clicked the link to the new board and it says it does not exist.
