Board software upgrade

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to let folks know that our board software is scheduled to be upgraded today. Ideally, members will not even notice, but if things look like the negative zone around here in a few hours, just know we are working on it.

That is all...

We've just undergone almost 3 years worth of software updates in one go!

You're going to have to bear with me while I reskin the entire board and all sorts of stuff as basically EVERY customisation previously made to the site requires redoing....

On the plus side there theres like 1000000000008 new features for me to play with and varying other junk

A word to the wise though, this is gonna take me some time... so please refrain from massively crying in the short term!

I had to check today's date to make sure it wasn't April Fool's. You guys had me scared for a second!

I'm not sure what the +/- things next to everyone's posts are, but do I get brownie points for giving +'s to staff? :)

While you're messing around with the colors: just in case you like to get back the original MMMV-grey for the background, it was #313131.

I really have to figure out the stuff here and get comfortable with it. Might take a while...


Edit: the quotes look a little strange. There is no border around them or anything. Hard to tell where the quote starts/ends.


Edit: And those "edited by" highlights are very highlighting, right? OK, I stop moaning and start to acclimatize. :whistling:
