The OC may be up and down over the next several weeks as we tweak and turn things into something new. Change is good right?

Sorry for the trouble... and trust me, there will be trouble, lol. But I do promise we will try to keep it to a minimum, though through all of this the site may be up & down, lag, or show horrible errors. Please bear with us.

Thanks,
Q

P.S. There may also be some data loss, but we will try to keep that from happening at all. So till this is over, if you can, please paste your posts into notepad or something. (data loss should be less then 24 hours)

Is this the reason I cannot log out? I try to log out and get "bad gateway"....although I thought it said "bad getaway"....both seem to be correct. :o

What sort of changes are we to expect? Or am I supposed to be patient? :o

Can't wait to see the new forum, Q! No, really, I can't wait. I'm not very patient.

Do you have an estimated date as to when everything will be fully upgraded?

It was mentioned in another post that they were not entirely sure and it could be months until everything is well enough to do the transfer. I am sure it will be amazing when it is executed. I have enjoyed the last 2? upgrades.

Mainly a backend change to the forum platform itself. We will be switching from vBulletin 4.x to Invision Power Services (full suite).

A few examples of what IPS looks like...

So the changes will be major in most cases.... only the data will remain constant :D

I really like the second shifters main skin. Very grunge in style. Over all it looks like we will have some nice features.

That is the app for Proboards, we'll be on Invision Power... which there is an iphone app for as well, and it will be installed :P

I will look at the tapatalk plugin as well, as it does seem to be ported... but I can not make promises on that one, as this time around I plan on trying to stay as official as possible.
