    Upgrade and Maintenance

    I am going to close down the forum later tonight and upgrade the script and perform some much needed maintenance. Afterwards, you may see some differences in the forum. We have a number of modifications to the forum that may not be compatible. If that is the case, they will discontinue to work and will be removed. Most of these are tools used by the moderating staff but some, like the posting statistics at the bottom of the page, could be affected. It may take me a few days to get it all back to normal.

    All of this is in preparation of a larger upgrade that will be coming sometime after the first of the year when vBulletin releases a major new release of the script. I have no clue how that will go but it's coming up nevertheless.

    Expect us to be down at least a couple of hours late tonight, possibly longer.....

    I hope it goes better than KSCCW's switch, they're still down. If we are out of touch with two of our three favorite forums, there might be mass depression.

    Thanks for trying to upgrade and good luck to you with the effort. "Upgrade" too often is a four letter word once the process starts.

    By the way, about what time are you planning to bring it down? That way I can plan what time I want to go to sleep.
