Forum outage and upgrade.
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:10:48 PM »
The forum will be down for an upgrade on January 17, 2013 from 1AM to 7AM. This outage is to allow us to move to the current version of the forum software. If you have any questions please let me know!
Thanks,

Tom

Once this happens I will have to work on making the new forum look like the current version.  We will lose the current White/Blue/Gold Minerva theme, but I will make sure we have options.
Need an R/F pin?  Ask me!

As you can probably tell with the changes the forum upgrade is complete. There is still work to be done but the heavy lifting should be done. Please reply to this thread with any errors you may get, it would be good to know the date and time too to help track down the inevitable bugs.

Thank you for your patience!
Thanks,

Tom

I've added a chat shoutbox to the main forum page. I am still researching chat options for the new versionn of the forum but hopefully that will work for now and if we get enough positive feedback we may keep it.
Thanks,

Tom

I can't find the color themes any more and this white is killing my eyes. Is there a way to change the colors?

You can change the theme you use by going to Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout Preferences, from there you can choose the theme you use. I'll look into other options but that's what come to mind.
