Well, I did warn you all that it could happen suddenly.
Right about 00:01 PST (08:01 UTC), I pulled down the forums for the migration. I think
it went well enough, but it will take some time to tell for sure.
You probably noticed that the forum layout has been altered more or less as described a few pages back. Most notably, the Polls forum has been folded into the General forum, and you now have the ability to make your own polls here. In addition, I've added the ability to lock one's own thread to minimize the overhead for staff. I'll be expanding that to other forums over the next few days.
Because Acyd Burn just had to release phpBB 3.0.6 mid-week, it caught me a little off-guard. Some changes will appear more slowly over the next few days. In addition, some of the changes require alterations to the RLC template, so baghead will have to update it in order for them to take effect. Other changes, such as the ATOM feeds, simply require some time to review that I'm not willing to invest at just before 03:00 when the alarm goes off at 05:45. Most of the forum folding is done, though Health still needs attention. The advertising forums were removed, but if there is some thread that you'd like to get pulled from there and placed in another forum, please let me know. I did move one thread over to Arts & Letters because it was somewhat active for a bit recently.
I have removed the Journals forum temporarily
to improve the look. There is code that I will be introducing for those who wish to resume use of them. I will also be adding the User Blog Mod, though, for those who wish additional flexibility. Since I have my Stage 2 checkride this weekend, though, my flight studies come first, and tonight's dent in my sleep totals isn't going to help that much. I am wanting to get that done as early as practical, though, and I expect that by the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, the forums will be up to where I want them in terms of features, if not traffic.
If you have comments about the changes, post them here. If you run into any problems, please post in the Support forum as I check that first, or send me an e-mail to email@example.com
. Please use the e-mail if it's a truly critical issue, as I can see that at work, while accessing the forums from work carries some difficulties.
Thank you for your patience as construction continues.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.
