Thumbs up

Thanks a lot, Lee!

Https is certainly not needed for any intermediate changes but would be highly appreciated to have with the future .org reincarnation. I always cringe when having to send passwords via http...

Make sure to reach out if you need any helping hands with those upgrades, especially tedious tasks like fixing broken links, etc.!

Regards,
Kai

This sounds really exciting especially for those who like me live on the West Coast (not to mention members from all over the world). Look forward to the continued growth and evolution of this forum.

Exclamation Disruption in forums availability

Please expect a period of disruption of forums availability during the next day or so as vBulletin completes the first phase of the update process.

Exclamation Upgrade Forums Service Pause

There has been a hitch (surprise, surprise) with the first phase of of the forums upgrade as an upgrade to PHP must occur beforehand.

Please expect these forums to be offline on Sunday, April 25 and Monday, April 26.

Exclamation Phase 1 nearly done?

The interim upgrade to vBulletin 3.8.11 has been completed, but surely many tweaks will still be needed. Please report any concerning issues encountered by PM or email to ljones@vikingsword.com.

Please note that this new version will resize images of compatible types automatically to fit the forum size requirements.

It was not intended that the error message that you would have seen yesterday and earlier today would appear. In order to update the forum software, the PHP version first had to be updated, but the old forums software was not compatible.
