    Hi everyone,

    Welcome to the new forums - sort of.

    I'm not sure how well this is going to function. vBulletin request we do upgrades of the existing forum and database but due to the previous one being a mess, I did not do that. Instead I:

    - Created a fresh installation of vBulletin 4.
    - Imported over all of the core data into the new database.

    The existing forums on VB3 are still up and running - just turned "off" at the moment and we may have to revert back to them if there are any major glitches. Hopefully not though.

    All I have did so far is go through all of the options on the forum and make sure everything is set up as I believe it should be.

    Tomorrow, I will go about making the forum feel like "Home" assuming no major bugs pop up that are unfixable. By that I mean altering the design to resemble the old forums more or possibly a new design depending on what is already out there.

    I'll also be cleaning up the database by getting rid of any users who have 0 posts. Because thanks to those fucking spammers there's about a quadzillion. Then I will get spam control going. There may be spam over the next day till I get that sorted.

    I will also merge the town hall meeting centre forum with this one. I will also look at eliminating other forums that aren't necessary anymore.

    After that - I will be dedicating at least 30 minutes per weekday to "NPP Work" starting Monday. That will generally include installing certain mods as well as fixing up any minor bugs that arise.

    If you notice any bugs on the forum - please post in this thread.

    Custom Smilies: The plugin that we used on VB 3 was abandoned. There is a new plugin for VB4. I will make that a priority install on Monday, and see if I can transfer everything over.

    Spoilers: Do not currently work. So be wary of going through threads. This will be fixed tomorrow.

    Alright done for the day. Back tomorrow.

    And as mentioned - report any bugs you find here or any requests for features/mods on the board either from the old boards, or from other VB boards you've seen. I'll need your help here as I made a zillion modifications over the years and can't really remember most of them.

    Current TDL:

    - Fix some broken smilie images like hrh.gif. We fucking need that.
    - Fix spoilers tag.
    - Go through mods on previous forums, install necessary ones.
    - Merge Town Hall with this. Look to see if any other forums should be merged.
    - Clean up Database by removing users with 0 posts.
    - Get some spam control going.
    - Get the design feeling like "Home".
    - See about custom smilies.
    - Get that piglatin thing going again and test it on Hole.
    - Go through the 8 billion vbulletion options. Like Forum sidebar etc.
    - Go through all of the potential vbulletin mods and see what dumb shit we can install.

    Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry that what you just heard was "Give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have." Do you understand?

    I can see avatars and signatures on mobile! This is great. Also, I switched phones and thought I lost the picture in my avatar. Thank God it's safe.
