Well guys, unless you neglect stickied threads with important info on site updates (and I'm sure some of you do... :rofl: ), you would have been expecting a software upgrade sometime in the next week or so. I've put in MAD hours this past week and this weekend and I'm very Happy to announce that (I think) it's ready for you guys
I have just a few things to tell you about it.
First of all, if you see any problems with the site or any functions of the site, please drop me a PM! I tested it in Mozilla Firefox, Netscape 7.1, and IE 6.026.
These were all brough over, even the ones you thought you deleted on the old site remained in the database, so they were brought over. At least you didn't lose any
. To update the Private Message count in the navigation bar, try deleting, moving, sending, or receiving a PM.
The Video Section:
This is totally new, totally redone. I have some subtle changes to make in the coming days (maybe weeks) to this part of the site. It's not properly reporting filesizes and left click won't work on some of the files, so as many of you would do anyhow, right click -> save as. I'll have these fixed as soon as I figure out the problems, and that shouldn't take long I hope.
The Gallery Software:
This is the one thing I was really worried about on the old site, and I think it was unanimous to scrap the gallery if need be. Since everything is moved over now I will try and re-integrate the gallery, but I make no promises. If I need to I will drop it and either re-install so it integrates properly, or purchase different software to handle the new albums. I think this will take me a few days to determine, so don't expect anything TOO quickly
You are going to need to go into your user control panel
and update your information. We have some new fields for you to fill out like birthdate, real name, bike, etc. You will probably also want to fill in your proper timezone and any other preferences you have (like invisible mode, the editor type, etc).
I would really like you guys to update your real name, as we can have this display under your avatars in the actual threads. I'll get that set up in a few days I think.
I'm sure there are some questions you guys will have, and I may want to expand on this post, so go ahead and ask, and keep checking back here
