Starting at 1 a.m. CST on 3/24, the boards will be unavailable because I will be updating them. If all goes well, and I hope it does, it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours tops to do. The version updates from v2.0.0 to the current 2.2.4. I am doing this so various bugs are fixed, as well as just to stay current.
:bounce:
Wish me luck!

Well, I just ran the update on my test board... which is the same version as this one.. and everything went great... it's just a matter of uploading the new files and running the update scripts, so it didn't take me more than a half hour to do.

The update adds security fixes as well as adds some miscellaneous features to the admin center and the board itself, nothing really big though.

Don't worry about post counts. They are safe. I'm not one of those admins who screws around with the members. It's just not right. The only way your post count could be knocked down is if I caught you spamming alot...

The board update is now complete. There should be no problems, however, if you encounter a problem or get a strange error while trying to do something, let me know.

OK, here's some of what was added:

Admin functions:

- Password Encryption, change passwords through admin CP
- See exactly who voted for what on any poll on the board
- Remove poll from a poll thread
- Unsubscribe every user from every thread on the board
- Mass move users between user groups

General Board Changes:

- You can see who replied when you click on the # of replies number next to a thread
- Users browsing a particular forum
- Forum leader page added
- Who's online page added, see where each user is on the board

General security patches to fix problems in versions under 2.2.3, as well as some bug fixes which I am happy to say are fixed now.

I don't know how many more hacks I'm going to add due to the fact that vB 3.0 will be coming out in a few months, which means all hacks will have to be re-written and re-installed. Frown

:bounce: Bouncey blobs 4 ever!
