Forums will be going down tonight around 2-3am EST for an upgrade.

Update 3/17/10 - Monday night was a no go due to work related issues. Tonight should be fine.

Update 3/18/10 - Ran into some problems with the upgrade so have reverted back to the old version with backups created. Will try to update again around 2-3am tomorrow morning.

Update 3/19/10 - Found out what was going wrong. Server requires a few updates before the new version of IPB can be installed.


Update 3/20/10 - Forum update to 3.0.5 finished. Please let me know if there are any problems. I'm heading to bed now since I have to work tomorrow... but will work on any issues as soon as I can.

Also, please welcome G0rt as a new Global Moderator.

Everyone - Instead of complaining about the current temporary forum skins... how about you look for a good free one and message it to me.

Not really, you can try checking out http://www.invisionp...products/board/ if you'd like.

We're going from a 2.x version upgraded in April of 2007 to a 3.x version released December of 2009.

Everything will be backed up before upgrading though... files/database/etc. If there's a problem with the new version we could just revert back to our current version (2.2.2).

As far as i know, you are not part of the AF and should have never been able to see that forum.

I looked through all the AF posts and i can only see where you were voted in as a Bunker Member but Not the AF.

Unless Zozz is a complete genius that can replicate to the smallest detail the old forum into the new IPB version in a couple of hours, the upgrade has not been made yet (I think).

Upgrade should happen tonight. I ended up not having time to do it the other night like I thought I would. Hopefully tonight will be good.

Monday ended up being one of the worst nights at work for a while now ><
