I wanted to give you a heads up that there will be a fairly big update to the forum software within the next month or so.

 

I'm doing some work on a test instance, just so I get the upgrade process nailed down before I do it here. 

 

The forum will look and feel different, but all the old topics will remain, as well as everyone's account username and password remaining the same. The predictor will also remain.

 

Basically it will feel more modern, with better mobile and tablet support.

 

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Okay....Why? I'm used to it as it is and I'm no that keen on modernisation shit cos I'm bad enough as it is.

 

2nd question....Did Moses really part the Red Sea ?

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!

BD and LB,

 

The current version was written a long time ago and misses out on a lot of the newer stuff. The next version of the forum software is more in tune with how many use the internet nowadays.

 

Support will become more difficult for this older version. Not that I have many issues, but I would like to know that support was there if needed.

 

It's not going to be a radical change. It will look and feel different, but it will still be a forum and will still be as usable as it is now. This isn't something that will make anyone cry and demand a return to the old look and feel. There will be some who don't like it, but I am sure that there are some who don't like how it is now.

 

I wouldn't want to do the upgrade while the Premiership season was in progress, because of the predictor. That means that it has to happen this June/July, or wait until 2016. That's a selfish decision by myself, because it would be too difficult and stressful for me to do midseason.

Did you not get the memo? There was a vote earlier. There was only one vote and it was to go ahead with the upgrade.
