So, here we are. Decided we might as well upgrade as well, so this is a shiny new installation of the forum - version 3.0. I will be bringing over the old board and setting it up as an archive, but that might take a day or two, so for the moment, use this one. I'll eventually be setting up the same structure as previously in terms of forums, but you will need to re-register your account. I'm looking into seeing whether or not I can bring over people's post-counts! I'll also work on getting something a bit more Sedona Red in terms of layout.

All told, it's probably for the best - the old version was seriously creaking at the seams, and as noted, was increasingly vulnerable to hackage. If you notice anything odd, or can't do anything, drop us a line and let me know.

Thanks
I was bummed to see DBBP was down. There was lots of wisdom there.

The old data should be available down the line, but it's no small task - there were almost 390,000 posts on the old board! I figured it would be quicker and easier to get this up now, and can then work on creating the archive without quite as much pressure. Hopefully, next week.

Dewberry created the avatar and TAP helped me download it. I don't even have it saved to my computer.

Not exactly sure why, but can only access this site from my phone... the URL typed into a computer takes me to the old boards, which are inactive...

Yeah, news of the change to where the domain name is pointing, is still making its way over the Internet. Looks like your phone service provider has got the word, but your home ISP hasn't yet - it should sort itself out soon. I'm seeing the same old board when I go to the domain too.

You like Dodgers colors? I think it is ugly. Also, who are you?

Maybe a good time to pass the collection plate.

Jim, don't forget to highlight the donation button.

Now is a great time for donations!

Thanks Jim - for all your hard work!

I vote for a light color scheme like this. I can see getting rid of the blue - but this is much easier to read than the soviet block standard issue.

Hey, Boss, can I have my old magic powers back, please? :D

Thanks, Jim!

This is going to take some getting used to...

Ok - dumb question. Where does it tell me what the icons to the left of the thread name means? Why is there a red asterisk next to some threads, and some threads have scrolling lines...
