Post subject:  Server Upgrade - Temporary Change in Style

Folks-

We had to upgrade the server here to the newest version of our forum software. Unfortunately, due to a bug in the newest version we are forced to change the look and feel of the site, hopefully temporarily. Please let me know if you notice any other problems on the site. I don't like this new style, but we are stuck with it until they make an update. Sorry!

-josh

Just above the "blue bar" at the end of the line of options.

Great... perhaps you'd like to act on one of your impulses and either:

a) hire the programmer to fix the bug in the system, or

b) dig into the code yourself and fix the bug in the system

Until then, I guess we'll have to say adios!

I was joking Josh. Your hint would have been the :---) emotican following my claim never to post again until it's fixed - where I then continued immediately to post all day.

Sorry for your troubles.

******************************
I'm sorry for Josh. It must be very frustrating for him. One can temporarily lose a sense of humour when faced with such odds !

It makes you want to go and kick the cat...metaphorically speaking of course !

Sheesh! I was trying to joke right back at ya, that's why I used the <catty> </catty> tags. I guess that is more geeky than normal for this board, sorry.

Is the catty thing an emoticon? As it didn't show up for me. Only the word itself "catty" with the tags.

No worries. Is this board slow loading for everyone, or am I being singled out by Josh? :wink: :wink: :wink:

You are being singled out by everyone ........



:lol: :lol: :lol:



It is slow at times, but right now it is not bad. I would suspect the traffic on the server was an issue.

Ok, so it doesn't look like we're switching styles any time soon (there's a bug in the other set of templates we are using and the developers are working on it). In the meantime I've added Ranks back in, you get more paws for the more posts you make. I may have to tweak the posting levels, since some of you are ├╝ber-posters. A significant number of our users are way up over 1000 posts!

I will try to get some more substantive changes so we can get out of this design template.
