    Exclamation Forum Upgrade - Outage Saturday Night


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    We have been suffering from relentless spam attacks, which have caused database outages in recent weeks, as well as making the moderators' lives more difficult than they already are.
    To help prevent future outages the software the forum currently runs on (VBulletin 3.5.1) will be upgraded (to VBulletin 4.2).
    This upgrade will take place overnight UK time Easter weekend. The forum will be unavailable from Saturday 30/03/2013 at 23:59 to Sunday 31/03/2013 at 08:59.
    Apologies for the short notice, but the upgrade is required to preserve our ability to keep the forum available.

    We are licensed for VBulletin 5 and when this version becomes a little more stable we will review the benefits of a further upgrade in the future.
    We are also looking to better utilise social networking platforms (e.g. Facebook) and to provide a mobile app to enable forum members to access the forum more easily on the go.

    We are now running on VBulletin 4.2 which has many new features, as well as a new look and feel.
    All userids and passwords should remain unchanged.
    All existing posts should be in tact within the database.
    Please work with us to customise this software to best suit our needs.
