  • Upgrading to vBulletin 5 - Progress Tracker

    Hi folks,

    I'm pleased to announce that we will be upgrading to vBulletin 5 very shortly. Dalton and myself are in touch with a former vBulletin developer (who also helped with the initial transfer to vBulletin last summer) and he is going to upgrade our software to the newest version of vBulletin. Once complete, we expect this to put an end to our problems with bots.

    Hopefully this upgrade won't cause too much disruption, however its possible that we may lose our Miniclip theme and be reverted to the default vBulletin theme until we've had a chance to rebuild it. Also, vBulletin 5 will look a little bit different from vBulletin 4, so expect a few changes here and there.

    In the event that the forum is off-line at all, please don't be concerned. This will just be down to the upgrade in process and we should be up and running again very soon.


    Thanks!
    Tetsu

    Hi all,

    Just a quick update: The developer helping us with the upgrade is from Los Angeles, California in the United States. He has said, time allowing, the upgrade is scheduled to happen around 12:00AM PST. According to the forum clock, this is 9:00AM GMT. As noted above, the forum may be offline briefly during this time.

    Thanks for your patience as we complete this important upgrade!

    Thanks!
    Dalton

      Upgrade to vBulletin 5 is complete but as suspected, most customizations, such as the Miniclip theme, have been lost.

      Please bare with us as we spend the next few days getting everything back in order. If you notice any problems, or anything broken or missing, please report it here and we'll add it to our to-do list of things to sort (I know about the smilies ect).

            Forum icons correctly reflect new or old posts in a particular category.

            Since the upgrade, all categories may appear as "new" or unread posts. To mark all forums as read, scroll down to the bottom and right above the "What's Going On Box" you can select "Mark Channel's Read"

                Users who previously weren't able to enhance their text with alignment, colors, and formatting should now be able to do so. Click the "A" in the top right-hand corner when typing a new post to be presented with several different options.

                    Users have reported that "topic icons" have been missing, and that they also weren't able to select any when making a new topic due to a 404 error. Icons have been restored and should not only appear throughout the entire forum where they've been placed next to a threads title, but also are now available for selection when creating a new thread.
