    Just a general heads up to folks, there will be an upgrade of the forum software - hopefully later this week. The exact date and time is unknown.

    But should you experience a sudden ‘it won’t work’ or the like within the next week or two that is probably it.

    Hopefully this will address the 502 errors and other things.

    ALso, there is a very good chance that the forum will roll back to the VB default layout and design. For those that don’t realize, there is a ton of customization that goes on behind the scenes, so it may take Darren a bit to get the furniture back where it was before so your patience is greatly appreciated.

    That's good to know, thanks for the info, Sky

    When you know what's going on it's no problem being patient, at least for me

    I do have a question about the software upgrade. Does this mean that avatars may or may not retain the 150x150 dimensions they currently have after the upgrade?

    No idea right now.I'd hold off on editing or resizing your avs till we find out how vb5 affects the forum features and customisations!

    Yeah, I read the thread this morning. I came back this afternoon and couldn't get on, so I thought you were updating. I am back now, and apparently you were not updating earlier.
    Does anybody have a time-frame (ballpark type thing) to give us an idea of when we can expect disruptions?

    No timeframe yet.

    I think we're still hitting server glitches so that might be why you couldn't log in,and I couldn't get in to reply till now.

    If all goes well,Greg will take the forums offline at some point in the next few days,and we might have a system message show on the page that may or may not give a guesstimate of when everything will be completed.

    You can already do that... encapsulating the links for video's in the video-tag will post the clip directly into your post. See the "What music are you listening to?"-thread in off-topic.

    However, it should be noted that it's murder on anyone with a slower or spotty internet connection -- and yes, those do still exist.

    Thanks for your questions and your excitement about the upgrade, everyone! Greg and I are beating down the gremlins right now (and let me tell you, that man is a Wizard. We're talking Gandalf the Gray facing down a Balrog).

    Time table: We are planning to roll out everything to you here next week.

    Avatars: I am attempting to preserve the 150x150 avatar standard, or perhaps nudge it up a bit to 160x160. Infuriatingly, vBulletin in its wisdom has opted to hard-code avatars to 64x64 (because it's 2003, apparently) and not offer their customers easy options to resize. So I am working on this problem over the weekend.

    Thread Titles: I know that when we add a new episode thread for a currently airing show into its folder, that gets linked across the forum (including the home page) in a way that obscures what show it's for. I'm thinking about ways I might improve the user experience here, but I hesitate to add the show title to every thread title. They're really meant for eyes that have navigated into that show's season folders. But I'm open to ideas!

    After the rollout we'll take your bug reports, change requests, questions, and fawning praise here:

    Xenforo is a system Magi and I are both very familiar with. It is a very good system for running a forum.
