Forum will be offline temporarily

#1 Post by Joost » 15 Jun 2009 12:52

Hey everyone,

Finally we have reached the point where phpBB 3 will be installed on this forum. This, however, means that the existing forum and its contents will have to be converted to the new forum software, and because of that, this forum will be offline temporarily, probably for a couple of days. Just so you know!

edit: The forum will be closed *some time this week*. An exact time/date is, as of now, unavailable.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

The garish red Joost all over the place is really cool.

Also, it always says I'm offline when I'm pretty sure I'm online. Are you trying to confuse me? Fix that.

Also, I added everyone on the forum onto my Foe list. Motherfuckers. I hope you all die.

Also, if anyone thinks the new forum look blows, try using the "prosilver" option. Jeesh. Now that's uglier'n 1970s hairstyles.

Also, a bunch of moronic images are gonna make this forum hurt my head even worse. It was bad enough when I only had to contend with your moronic words. Well, I never read them anyway.

Also, stop pruning. How are we supposed to build up a history when you keep erasing it? For example, I look back on all the times I said I was leaving and never to return throughout the years. Fast food forums. Drive through, eat it and forget it. You all suck.

If the session problems keep occurring, can you please pm me the OS/browser you use? And additional relevant information, e.g. if you use a proxy or something along those lines?

Believe it or not, that's actually the default look for phpBB3. :mrgreen:

As for the pruning, I wasn't happy with it either. Blame Jason! :P

Yes, we changed servers.
