Forum and Server Upgrade Soon - There will be Hiccups

Postby North Idaho Patriot » Fri Nov 25, 2016 8:20 pm

We will be updating both the forum and the server sometime within the next couple of weeks. If there is anything to be certain of, there will be hiccups for sure. We've already done this upgrade for a few other sites first and so we know what we are up against. Some of the extensions that we use on this forum were never updated by their creators to be compatible with the newer phpbb forum versions.

some of the things that might not work
*Karma
*The Notification bar that rotates along with the ads up top
*Header images in the sub-forums
*The portal page
*The menu bar
*The gallery
*The state and group tags

Other things that you may notice
*error codes when posting

When we make the transfer we will do so in a way that will not cause missing posts. But that also means the forum may be down for up to 24 hours during the transfer. After the transfer, I will work on the above issues.

We are not Burger King and customer service is not my forte. So if we have any snowflakes who feel inconvenienced or offended we can start a gofundme page for tissue and handkerchiefs. For those of you with thick skin and who can handle a little down time, we'll try to make things as seamless as possible.

I will update you all soon as I know what day we will pull the trigger on the upgrade. :gunshooting:

Isn't that what we call an "oopsgrade"?

Well it would be called an ooopsgrade if I didn't know what the end result will be, but we already know what problems we'll encounter so it's more like a shootmyselfinthefootgrade. Except it needs to be done.

Thanks--

Your title made me think of that movie/book? (can't remember) "There Will Be Blood."

Hope it doesn't come to that!

Tom, I'd rather see a gofundme page for APN. Or EVERYONE could get gold membership and help painlessly that way. Hint, hint, hint.

Too funny. I do upgrades and storage migrations for a living so I know what you are going through.

But, But, But, snowflakes are so delicate, individual and beautiful, that every time it snows, I can't wait to get out and write my name on them! S - W - A - M - peeeeeeeeeee!

Yeah, riiiight, swamp. And how much snow do expect to see this winter, way down south where it's nice and warm?

Ok, let's all get our big girl panties on for the rough road up ahead. Thank you for the heads up, NIP, and thank you for this site.
P!
