Upgrade complete!

This is a quick post. Markas (I blame him entirely) begged me to upgrade to vBulletin even though it was quite late in the evening. Against my better judgement I did it, and then bham it's 4am and it's taking ages! Importing Babbleon has been time consuming, and I even had to shut the Trek BBS and Talk CSI which are on the same server because the server was going apeshit with the load.

So I will customize the look later, when I've had some sleep. And I'll talk you all through it, help with any problems etc.

But for now, just login with your display name from the old board. That's the name you had next to your posts, not the name you logged in with (if you had different names that is). Your password is the same. If you need to reset your password, you'll get that option after a failed login attempt.

Email me at antony[at]b5tv.com if you can't receive your password reset email.

And probably the biggest thing you're likely to comment on is the old UBB code in posts. There's a script that I think will clear that up, but it may just be something we have to live with as part of the move. It's a massive task, and I think it's amazing that vBulletin keeps as much intact as it does.

He is an excessive liar. Some things aren't working, like the old smilies and quotes, and the old titles and ranks are gone. Things will need to be attended to, as Antony has said above. Hopefully, you will all be able to get in and have at the new board.

Thanks Antony, for all the hard work.

Somehow you just don't seem like RW without a Sheridan avatar!

Re: Upgrade complete!

Looks very lovely.

vBulletin is a nice system, especially for more active/larger boards.

Re: Upgrade complete!

I miss the blue. I guess the avatars will start trickling in, as RW's has been visible throughout and Kribu's just showed up when I logged in.
