BIG changes afoot
« on: June 14, 2010, 09:28:51 PM »
This weekend it is my intention to attempt an upgrade of the forums from smf 1 to smf 2.

This is a major upgrade and will give us a lot of useful tools to help use organise and access the forums.

The plan is to do the upgrade, then install a new dice roller (not the current one) the tiny portal so we can keep using the downloads section and a chat client.

If anyone has any suggestions or concerns please post them in forum chat.

Visit the welcome section of the forums and click on the VOTE link,
so you can vote for us and move us up the rankings at the gateway :)

Since I've done a lot of world building here, I think I should probably ask: Should we check to make sure we have backups of anything we dare not lose? Just in case the worst case scenario becomes reality?

Worst case scenario is that it goes wrong and we restore to the backup I make just before the upgrade and we loose a couple of days

Works for me. Just figure it's better to be too cautious than to not ask.

A question that was asked elsewhere:

All the forum structure, all the posts, and all the attachments will be retained. . .as will the memberlists. . . .

So assuming all goes well, things should mostly remain the same.

Has the change happened? If so I must say it went very smoothly. Have not noticed anything different. In that case: GOOD WORK GUYS!

Hehe.....The change hasn't happened yet.

A bit more housekeeping to do first.
Look at me still talking when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me glad I'm not you.
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done
