I have upgraded the files in the system to the latest version of vbulletin 3 series... before we move over to vb4 in a month or so.

I am trying to get the site stable and the latest files should be the right way to go...

There will be missing sections until I can get it all back to normal again.

Should be all sorted by tomorrow but its late now and need to go to bed lmao.

Regards
Mickie D

nice 1 mate , thanks for you hard work

No problem biffo :)

There will be some issues like shoutbox, messenger, etc not working because I need to add them back...

Would be nice if members could benchmark the page loadings etc today while I am at work.

Let me know if its slow or what today, then we can add say one mod a day and see if the hacks (IE shoutbox) are causing the problems etc.

Apart from the SEO hack there is nothing on here at the moment, so lets see how the site runs with the basic forum form.#

PS do not forgot on certains hours the site does a backup and locks the database so if its slow at SAY 11:00 13:00 21:00 and so on it will be a backup and not the functioning of the servers.

Regards
Mickie

I use it, but i'm not a fan of it :) I think it's something we can do without.

Same here. It would be fine if used properly, but it often just becomes a tool for fanboys and fellow-travellers.


(and I think we're all guilty of that.)

i agree that the thanks button isn't really necessary. I'd prefer to see the shoutbox back ;)

I think the thanks button is OK for just acknowledging a post in someway instead of replying to it and filling the database up with another post just to say 'nice one' or what have you.

You're always going to get people who see thanks, rep or post count as akin to a high score on Space Invaders, just thought it was handy and convenient myself.
