Forum upgraded, and scheduled downtime

Post by Jazzy » 16 Jan 2012 08:21 pm

The forum has received a long-overdue upgrade, jumping from 3.0.8 to 3.0.10. The changes are mostly behind-the-scenes bugfixes and should make very little visible difference to how the forum looks.

That said, I've managed to cock up a tiny part of it, as you will see instantly from looking at this topic: the way it displays profile boxes next to posts (or, er, now doesn't). I'll be fixing that soon, probably either tonight or Wednesday.

If you run into any problems, such as weird error messages or being unable to do something (post, send PMs, moderator actions, etc) get in touch with me any of the following ways:
- email me at foreverundecided at wingedspirit dot net
- neomail me on essexweirdo
- PM me here

Thanks!

Additionally, on the 20th January (Friday of this week) there will be a period of downtime as the server NC is hosted on is upgraded. I don't know how long it'll last, but don't anticipate it dragging on for too long; we're expecting a few hours, perhaps.

You're the greatest Jazzy! Thanks for the upgrade, I'm sure it'll be worth slightly awkward avatar positions temporarily. And thanks for the downtime warning, I'll just have to remember it and not freak out.

Well after the initial WTF I have decided I find this change refreshing (at least for a little while?) Thanks for all your hard work!

Is this why something looks subtly wrong about the main box at the top of the forum index? Goodness knows what's changed, probably just four pixels have moved or something, but I was worrying it was me going mad.

As for the user icons, think of it as providing a little surprise as to whose post you've been reading *grin*

Thanks as ever for all your hard work maintaining this place.

Thanks for keeping us informed, and also for keeping the NC in tip-top condition as always :-) A little bit of layout re-arrangement I can live with for a while.

Downtime over and done with, apologies for the length! This was due to slowness on our hosts' end. There's going to be a delay in sorting out the post display, though, because I have a project deadline on the 26th. The site has been moved to a new server; if anything seems to be acting up, get in touch with me using the methods in the first post.
