System Upgrade

Post by safari-admin »

Greetings,

Upgrades to the phpBB platform that this forum runs on are available. The upgrades are expected to improve forum stability and performance, and possibly add some new capability as well. We will begin the process of upgrading in the next several days. As a forum member, you can expect the following:

1. A communication that updates are set to begin will be posted at least one hour in advance to Announcements
2. There may be a period of downtime as the software upgrade is implemented -- we expect it will be minutes rather than hours
3. Add-on functionality upgrades, if available, will be implemented at the same time
4. The user experience could change little or not at all as a result of the upgrade, but don't be surprised if some things behave differently

We are tentatively planning on the weekend of May 2-3 to perform the upgrade, but if conditions aren't right, this may be postponed to a later time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please PM.

Thanks,

Safari-Admin

The system upgrade will commence at approximately 7PM Mountain Time today. Expected down time is 30 minutes or less. Please do not attempt to reply or post new content during this time, as we cannot guarantee successful submission.

Thanks!

System upgrade is complete. Advise moderators/admins if you experience unexpected behavior.

Thanks!
