Somethin\' is happening....

What are the changes you guys are working on right now? I've noticed that it's been pretty slow during the day, but last night the BBS was the fastest I've ever seen it. reminded me of the first time I used high speed internet instead of a dial-up! Will the front end that we see be changing soon? Or are you guys just changing the back-end software?

Re: Somethin\' is happening....

So far we have upgraded the web server abnd added modules to suppoort the PHP version of the BBS.

Within the next 24hrs, we will upgrade parts of the system OS and The MYSQL database system which is the backbone of the BBS.

We will still have to make the BBS upgrade itself after that.

<font face="Comic Sans MS">What's the upgraded BBS going to be? Is it what CK5 runs or something completely different? Will the admin/moderator tools be any different than currently? Just curious...</font>

Re: Somethin\' is happening....

We are staying with the present software with an upgrade to a new version with sights on a major release later this year.

The admin pages will change and the concensus among users of this software is that the changes arefor the better.

The general interface will only change to separate the authors signature data into another table element. We will attempt to do this. No guarantees.

Thanks
