Post Board upgrade
Hey you guuuiiisseeee!

The board will be down later tonight (around 8-9pm GMT) while I upgrade us to phpBB version 3.

I'll try to get it done as quickly as I can so you don't get withdrawal symptoms ;-)


Because of the massive changes between phpBB2 and phpBB3, the templates will no-longer be compatible. So this place will go all blue and white for a while - until I can hack together a theme that's a little more fitting :-P

I love the pink and green theme as well.

Are there any new features we should be looking forward to after the upgrade?

I love the pink and green too. Don't worry - I will be re-making it for phpBB3.

There are tons of improvements in phpBB3. See here:

DAMMIT DAMMIT DAMMIT.

Well, that didn't go well.


We lost about 100 users in the conversion - and numerous other things went wrong.

I'm going to shift the board to a different server (that doesn't have issues) tomorrow and try again.


Sorry to those who made posts in the hour or so that we were running phpBB3 - unfortunately, those posts are lost forever.


Damn.
