The upgrades are almost complete. Next week we will be testing to ensure its functionality and are looking for a launch date sometime around Sept 11/12.
During the launch date the site will be down for aprox 4hrs prior.
Once back up you may find some very minor bugs and we can really use your support during this time so I will start a thread for "upgrade bugs"
If you can please post your issues in that section once created we can work on getting them fixed immidiately. Again, we thank you for your patience and support during this time.

I should also note that any current bugs existing on this site now are completely irrelevant. The upgraded version is currently running independantly from this site. There will not be alot of changes that you will notice as this is a software upgrade only.

Steve I haven't noticed any downtime? Was the work completed at a time I hadn't tried to access the Forum or did the date change? I also noticed that there weren't many posters that viewed this message.

Perhaps after 3 or 4 months you will have vbetting back. They dont care. :)

:wavey: Mae... probably the upgrade will be in 2079 or something....They just want to pretend they are working... I hope no-one pays them.

Is the current problem with the attachments and avatars connected to the upgrades?
We still can't upload any avatar nor attach pics to our posts. For almost one day now.

I understand that some Webmasters like to keep a low profile, but personally I think it is nice to see some posts from the Webmaster. MTF is large with a lot going on and sometimes I feel like it is almost out of control. Maybe it's just me, but I like to feel that someone is in charge. So Steve I hope you will be "kicking around" more often :)

Is this upgrade going to include the option to pick and choose which forums are on your main page? I made the suggestion to Amanda agesssss ago and she said they would consider if for the next software upgrade?

UPDATE:

The admins, super mods have the new version for testing. Im done testing myself and it all looks good. I would rather launch the site on Monday instead of thursday or Friday. This allows a fresh week to concentrate on the upgrade. Hope your all ok with that.

MAE sent me a pm reminding me that I didnt post an update. Thanks MAE!!!!

Ok, So we did find a little glitch but that is now old news I was supposed to post that yesterday. So MTF is now done and ready to go. WTA is almost ready..... or maybe it is ready now, cant guarantee that right now, either way we are pretty much good to go. Im just trying to ensure that we can schedule that all people on our side and server side etc etc are available for the launch. I dont want to launch and have something go wrong because someones sleeping and have the site down for some stupid reason.
I do apologise for the delay all the time but I really want this to happen flawlessly..... if not you get to see my bad side even though it would be our fault :)



Just trying to watch out for ya'll!

I know! I loved the Wimby skin but they shouldn't have put the date on it. Putting dates on skins isn't a good idea, generally.
