Seems to be more spammers on the new board. Maybe that's just my perception, though.

Thank you for the hard work, the long hours, and for caring enough to give us a home for our ranting and raving. =D> =D> =D>

Well... sometimes things are so broken that they cannot be fixed. Such was the case with the old message board version. I was left with no choice but to install new board software, and that as you can see, means big changes. I know that people are reticent about change, so I know that there will be some knee jerk reactions of revolt initially. Settle in, give me some time to try and get some of the gazillion customizations and modifications hat I had made o the old board over the years, and hopefully things will start to feel more familiar.

They aren't changing anyhoo, the new board is here to stay. Security takes precedent over all. :)

Please be sure to report any problems that you have or notice in this thread, or to me directly by PM.

Mods... lots of new stuff to look at and play with - I ain't even gonna get into it until we make sure everything is working fine, so feel free to fumble around and find the things that you're used to using, and some of the new ones too. Shiny new digs!!!

I only lost SIX posts out of 600,000+ in the transfer - not a single member - pretty incredible really. Kudos to the phpbb team that made the convertor. Hitting a button every 45-60 seconds for 4 hours wasn't pleasant, but if the end result was nearly 100% data integrity on the transfer, I'd do it again in a heart beat.

In the end, we had to move the entire site to a new server, so thanks to the guys at doreo.com for always taking such good care of me. If you ever have hosting needs for a website, never look any further...

I'm going to bed. I have been working on this for 29 straight hours. I'll check in to see what's broke later.

Enjoy the new house, we'll get some re-decorating sone soon - but she's got four solid new walls and a roof and that's what's important for the community.

Hail.


You gotta do what u got to do.its all good.
Thanks for 10 years .

FYI, spoke with BH... yup, there's more spam... tweaks are being made, and it should be back under control real quick (he just gave me a new Spam Assassin 2000 trainer! Can't wait to get the real thing!)... Boss is still twisting dials at THN Central Control (see pic... )

It'll be just a smokin' around here soon! I love the smell of burning spambots in the morning!

Haven't checked in on THN in several months. More or less lost interest in the Redskins thanks to ratface, a/k/a Mike Shanahan. Hope Mark is recovering well. #HTTR

The longer I use the new board, the more I like it. And I really love some of the new features. Particularly the "view unread posts" and the "Add foe" features.

Hi Boss,

Just wanted to let you know the login from the main page isn't working. It gives an unresolved link error message. However, I clicked on the message board as a guest and it did let me sign in at the login at the top of the page.

The site looks great though! As an IT guy, I know about data migrations, what I read about how it went you did a great job to get virtually all the data over, that's no small feat.

I love clicking on Img or Quote and having the cursor blinking where I want to paste.

:up:


The Search function seems to ignore older posts.

:(


I'm hooked on THN.
