ATTENTION: Technical Changes To The Board

Post by Scott Sebring »

Some of you may have noticed that the board was down most of Monday the 29th. Maintenance and compatibility issues has made it necessary to upgrade the site to the latest update of the Message Board software. Although the posts, memberslist, private messages and attachments were able to be converted over to the new system, the look, style and every enhancement plug in were not backward compatible.

So what does this latest update do?
1) The forum is finally mobile compatible for smart phones, tablets and the like.
2) Upgrades as they come will be easier on the administrative and maintenance side.
3) Videos are easier to add to posts.
4) Easier ability to upload multiple images to a post.
5) A listing of recent posts on the front page.
6) Similar Topics listed at the bottom of a thread
7) Topic Previews when you hold a mouse over the thread
8) More to come...

What did we lose so far in the process?
1) The "Thanks" feature for posts is now gone
2) The graphic heavy theme that framed this site with changing headers is no longer compatible and might not come back though I'm still looking into it. I managed to still have our changing wallpapers.
3) The image gallery is now gone although that never got much traffic.
4) The menu linking to the archive site, resources and so forth is out for the moment. This will slowly be reworked to a certain degree.

Most of all, I want you to know that the one thing I am seriously asking from all of you during this time is to refrain from posting about the changes and issues as I am more than aware of them. Please do not post or send PMs making requests, suggestions or complaints as I am up to my ears already in this and not sure how much more of it that I'm willing to take on at this juncture.

We are more than functional at the moment and I could really use your collective cooperation to adapt and move forward with this.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Even luckier for us, she's Batgirl, the supremely feminine scourge of all that is criminal!
