Forum Downtime

Post by petec »

I'm hoping to update the forum software again at this weekend (29th Apr to 2nd May inc) - and if I have time, restore some of the data lost in the recent attack.

If you find the forum down over this weekend, don't panic - its probably just me.

The board has been upgraded to the highest security level. However, there do seem to be a few glitches in the system - especially the Avatars. I will try to sort them out as soon as possible. Feel free to re-upload if you want.

Guys

The site will be going down tonight while the servers are moved to a new data centre. The site may be down for up to 10 hours - don't worry, it will be coming back.

Sorry for the short notice - got my dates muddled up!

In light of recent security issues, I will be updating the forum on Sunday 19th March 2006.

I'm hopeful that the update will only take a few minutes but in there are always possibilities of problems. If you attempt to view the forum and it is not available, please try again later.

I apologise for this downtime, but I know you would all rather have a secure, safe forum.

Thanks, PeteC

The forum has just been updated to the latest version - hopefully this will reduce the number of spammers that Gary has been deleting recently.

Please let me know if you find anything not working.

Flippt - you were the only person on the forum at the time...if you were posting, its best to check that they went ahead.

Cheers

Certainly hope that stops them for a while - they're persistent little blighters!

Pete, the forum upgrade seems to have removed some of the Avatars :-?
