Heh. You might notice the site looks a little different. Welcome to a much more stable server, with a much more stable forum install. This is the first of MANY changes that we've been planning for a while. Hopefully the remainders can be handled in a fairly non-disruptive manner. Let me know what you find, if anything, that isn't working....

Thanks for your patience! :sugarcookie:

    Dear God, what have you done?!?!



    Kidding, it looks great. Although...how are we supposed to joke about the "eventual forum upgrade" now?

    Just posted in the staff forum saying how shocked I was this morning.

    Thanks!


    Just added a youtube link to the 2ds thread and didn't see a way to embed the video. Does the new software allow it and I just couldn't find it or do we still just need to link to videos?

    Let me see what I can do about that. I think I can fix that pretty easily.

    So my time is off. I selected the pacific time zone, but it says it's 4:48pm which I wish was true since I'd be going home.

    Hmmm...I will look into what the server time zone is. It may be doing a timezone offset from server time or something inane.

    Thought I had entered the twilight zone!

    So, the big question is, is this the upgrade that we've been waiting for that will integrate the website with the forums?

    Btw, site is much quicker now. :)

    This is not that update. In fact, this is pretty much just a half-step towards that, so don't necessarily get used to this setup...

    As Mike said - not the big one, but that one is right around the corner. This was "get the server situation stable, get the forums stable" Next step is migration to the integrated. After a lot of waiting, we are in finally in motion.

    Glad to hear the site is faster for you folks. It's been a great upgrade for us too.

    Alright, gotcha. An upgrade to facilitate the upgrade :)

    There are a few things I had to change in my profile that may make life easier for others, such as enabling the full editor for quick reply, and enabling 'return to topic after posting'.

    Great job, guy! :)

    Good find - I installed the plugin but there seems to be a hiccup. Researching.

    [tt]Another thing that really stinks is that the text preview (at least for Quick Reply and Reply) seems to show things as automatically being double spaced, but once you post it is only single spaced.[/tt]
    For instance as you can see in the image below it shows this as being well below the line above, with only a single Return and no way to edit or modify the space above, but once I hit Post it isn't.

    And then once I did the Quick Edit that second sentence got really small. :saywhat:

    *nod* Some stuff I'm not gonna chase as we won't be on this forum software for long. We had to upgrade to this to be able to push to the iteration that lets us integrate the front page and forums. This one I'm not sure I can fix.

    So there is going to be another even cooler and spiffier forum later?
