I feel this new forum software will allow better protection against spam in the long run plus allow for more options in the future. Let me know what all ofyou think.

The forums are now public.

Now they are still beta as because of the rename some things have to be reinstalled or refixed. However ALL your stuff (Except avatars sorry a problem with a folder prevented that) has been transfered over. As of like 15-20 hours ago.

If you made a post on the old forum after that your post is lost sorry!!

Please reupload your avatars and enjoy the new forum please post any problems you may have.

is it possible to copy a whole post? or do we have to copy the contents only? The new forums are nice and all, but you guys could maybe have given a bit more notice before switching to it ... :P

oh and ... 'sup with the smiley?

No we had to do it today. If we waited longer it'd mean that we had to close the older forums anyway as we cant run the convert script again.

The issues are getting settled out. The smilies will be fixed soon.

I apologize for the suddenness of the switch, definitely there were lessons learned this time. The main reason for the sudden switch is the new forum software just worked. It was easy to install and get up. The only problems came when I switched the directory name and had to find all the directory locations and switch them.

There are also some complaints about the new simlies, some of the users didn't like them.
I have to admit that I like (http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/phpBB2/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif) more than :), (http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/phpBB2/images/smiles/icon_redface.gif) is missing completely (and quite often used by me (http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/phpBB2/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif))

Cheers

On the theme SMF theme is to be modfied for use. That is when rob finishes it.

On the smilies ill reset them to the other set for now and will install a better set later.

edit: Whopps It seems the other set had to be removed ill install a new one later.
