Forum outage and upgrade.
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:11:50 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.

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 the thread in RF Updates 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

giffigesady is our 1st spammer on the new forum, with well over 200 postings. Death to spammers! >:(

I'm working on finding a more suitable "skin" for the forum at the moment.  Also, spam monitoring appears to be much easier with the upgrade.

I am having trouble accessing the forum using Chrome and Firefox. It says it has a redirect loop. I've tried clearing my cache and cookies. Is this just me?

I haven't had a problem with FireFox, I'll load a VM to test Chrome and see what happens. Sorry you're having problems.
