Site Maintenance Weds Night 8/24

We’re nearing the final warning call. The site will be going down Wednesday late evening, for software updates. While the forums will likely have a new look, this procedure is to get our website software up to the current revisions as we are a bit behind. The classifieds are to be updated and hopefully no ads lost. THE REALITY IS when you do long overdue updates, problems can occur. When we updated the frontend, which is the front page and associated pages, a few months ago, a few bugs were uncovered that we quickly fixed. The version of classifieds being updated is old so make a copy of your ads and pictures if need be to re-enter into the updated classifieds. What I’m saying is we trust things will go smoothly but know how surprises can come up.

Make a copy of any pictures etc. that you have on the site but don’t have a personal copy.

Again we’re updating an old version of VBulletin to the latest version so hope for smooth but prepare for lumpy.  Worst case is the site will come back up with some bugs that need fixing. The sad thing is we can’t predict what will happen until we push the upgrade button. Other design changes will follow as we move forward but Wednesday night is a software upgrade only.
