Hello everyone! First off, allow me to start off by saying that I'm not responsible for the board upgrade, so please save me the worst of your wrath, I'm just here to play the messenger. With that said, the Duke (our server admin) is only trying to do his job and suffered some complications, so please save him your wrath, too. The worst of it, at least.
Regardless, you might have all noticed the board to have a new look, a scary little warning on top of the board, and perhaps that some posts/topics since yesterday are gone. Long story short, given continued bot problems, it was decided to cut the straw and finally force the board to be updated to a proper version. A backup of the very moment the update started was made, but there was a little issue with this (Oops!) which meant we were forced to rollback to the last database backup yesterday. Sorry for anything that was lost in that timespan!
Regardless, for the most part, after many hours of work, Duke has managed to bring the forums to a mostly okay state... But a couple, perhaps breaking issues do remain. There will be a list at the bottom of this post, and if you find any other issues you can post them here. For now it's important to know that firstly, we'll be looking to see if we can fix these issues, in which case we will continue using the new boards. HOWEVER, assuming the errors can't be fixed, there will likely be another rollback! So don't get too attached to anything you write here for now.
Assuming we are forced to rollback, the next course of action will likely be to archive the "old" (current) forums, and we'll likely be switching over to a new board format.
In the case the forums will go down for maintenance again, we have a discord you can follow to keep up to date, or just general chatting: https://discord.gg/f63Eqmd
