Posted:This is for those that do not notice a change.
I hoped this was going to only take a couple of hours. I have now been working on it for 12 hours and I am about to pass out for over tierness.

Unfortunately I could not transfer across to SQL the either/or topic and a few other extra long posts with over 1000 replies (sorry it those were yours, I stilll have copies of them)
I still need to do a lot of fine tuning on this new system. Hopefully it is going enough for your to post a reply :confused:

I will work on it more in the morning.
I have already found some errors but please also feel free to post them here so i can continue on them tomorrow.

Kindest regards

Malcolm

Posted:Gold star for you, Malcolm - you've clearly been busy. Being an old fart the changes will take some getting used to but the board looks a lot brighter.

Presuming old PMs won't be restored frown Nay worries though, sure there was not anything there I can't live without.

Get a good sleep! Ta for all your hard work Malcolm
- that definitely derserves 3 gold stars.

Posted:Been working 18 hours now. Preparing the changeover took 3 weeks. getting ready this morning was 6 hours and the script was supposed to take 2 hours to complete. Sadly it could not handle some of the huge posts. I will reopen the old bulletin board tomorrow so you can read old topics and posts. but you will not beable to create topics or reply to the old system.
I think I have also today managed to scratch my head so much when things went wrong that I have a hole in my head frown

I too miss the active topics link. Might there be some way to collapse the threads on the active topics for 24 or 48 hours? This might give the same thing as the old link.

Posted:OK, first off, thanks Malcolm for putting in the hours.


I have a very slight niggle, though. My registered email address had a + sign in it, (which is legal RFC2822, yadda yadda), and your new profile editor thingy doesn't let me use it anymore. Is it possible that when you next do updates you can be a bit more flexible about what constitutes a "valid email address".

Other than that, a bit of a shock looking at it for the first time, but it's definitely growing on me. smile
