Post I'm an asshole
Right, phpBB3 is here. At last. I'm sure you all have lots of questions...

What the hell happened?!
The board software has been upgraded from phpBB2 to phpBB3.

Why does it look so different?
phpBB3 is pretty different to phpBB2. The old theme I customised isn't even close to being suitable for the new software.
I picked the closest theme I could find and slapped the Racer X logo at the top of it. Don't worry though, I will be editing the theme to have more pink and tread-plate textures soon.

Is this why the board has been disabled for the past 4 hours or so?
It certainly is. The upgrade process took a long time. About 3 and a half hours and 70 or manual database hacks to get everything running.

Why has it taken so long for you to do this, you asshole?
Because I'm an asshole, and for that I'm sorry. I might be a very busy asshole, but that's not really too much of an excuse. This is the first time the upgrade process has worked - let's just say it's 20th time lucky. Really though, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get it right, guys. I hope you can forgive me; especially Ken, who deserves better.

My <insert important thing here> is broked! HELP ME!!!
If you're unable to log in, email me on tom at racerxband dot com. If you are able to log in, drop me a private message or post here and I'll do my damn best to solve your problem.

You haven't answered my question!
Sowwie :-( Post here or send me a PM and I'll see what I can do

I had a report saying people couldn't post replies.

That should be sorted now. Thanks to dave5150 for the heads up

You're welcome, ma'am! ;)
(hehe, I'm not a sir)

Do I enable bbcode in my userCP or do you have it off board-wide for the time being?

Woohoo! I can post again! Thanks, Tom!

I only noticed the forum was down about a minute before it came back.
I just refreshed and it reappeared!

Curiously, I thought about mentioning that when you first said you were going to upgrade to phpBB3. Probably should've done it :P. Anyway, just slap more pink in it and it'll be fine. Finally, thanks for all your hard work :D.

Well. I hope you sort the looks out. How do I change them myself, if possible?

Right. BBCode was disabled for standard users in the Admin Announcements section. It's working now.

Next up: "Active topics"

Not quite sure about the active topics thing yet.

It's 2330 here though - been doing this since 1730. I'm going to get some sleep and carry on tomorrow.

So glad the boards back and it's looking pretty great. The pink's going to be an added bonus.

Scrap that. "Active topics" fixed. Now time for bed. I'll go through anything else tomorrow evening.

Cheers, guys.
