I hope the forums are as buttery smooth as the main page is now ... and I hope the spam filtering is better in the new software. It's been like Whac-A-Mole lately with the spam bots.

[QUOTE="Vyse, post: 6534802]The main site looks good, although it doesn't appear to sync our forum accounts anymore.[/QUOTE]

Yep. Since we are moving to XenoForo, there is no connection to the current forums. There will be a number of items to address once we get moved, I imagine.

Can't be more items to address than our current forum situation.

We're not touching the vB forums anymore so nothing will be fixed. We're very shortly switching over to Xenforo so that's where our time is going to be spent.

The Metro themes make it look less craptastic until everything is moved over.


Edit: I lied ... still looks like dookie.

I'm seeing the white background with broken images at the top today even though F34R posted his screenshot yesterday. It reminds me of the bright light at the end of Lost.

I don't think users can see this can they? only staff.

We were supposed to make it default at one point (in a finished state though), but as i recall, there was something that stopped us (VB will not be missed).

Shoutbox has been stuck loading since yesterday too.

Honestly, that's all fine for now as long as you can still delete the spam threads that are popping up daily. I'd hate to see that junk being carried over to the new forums.

I didn't realize that. Either way, both look terrible, lol.

I've been killing spam bots with a vengeful wrath lately.

There is a lot of dorked up stuff on the forums right now since we have moved to WordPress servers. Just going to bear with it until we move to XenForo.

I would have taken “fubar” as well, but dorked works.

What's the ETA for XenForo? I reported 18 spam threads that have popped up in the last two days.

And I've deleted all of them. Our current spam filter is currently not doing jack diddily crap apparently. You don't really need to report them ... I mean they're glaringly obvious at this point. In fact I would really prefer you stop reporting them because there are just as many reports as there are spam posts and it makes it ten times worse seeing both your reports and the spam all over the place.

Understood. I just wanted to be certain.

Yeah! Let's get it rolling again! PSU used to be spot back in the G. I'll always love this place regardless though. We need new kids in here so I can shove my sneaker thread down their throats. :snicker

I know it is a high priority with the team doing the upgrade. The vbulletin software is impacting the entire site and so getting off this ancient software is really important. I'm hoping it will be done this week or the next, but that is just me hoping.

Definitely looking forward to it. Can we set the vB software on fire after we're switched?

Let us nuke it from orbit before moving to the new planet.
