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.:aargh4:

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.

Thank you for the update! I really appreciate these forums.

May the gods of "scripts & sql" smile upon you! May the upgrade be as smooth as properly lubricated firearm.

It appears all went well last night. By removing the statistics on "top trheads", etc from the bottom I believe it the performance increased. I will probably not re-install that particular mod. Anyway, it's done until after the first of the year when the big one comes......

And for some reason on my laptop I don't have to scroll to the right anymore since you removed the "top trheads"
Thank You Bumper:danceban::congrats:
