We'll be down for maintenance next weekend starting at 2pm est. I do not know how long the upgrades will take. Hopefully a couple of days.  I will post on the CCI Forum when we are back up.

We intend to address;
Backrooms issues we need to address,
We'll also be looking at the overall presentation of the forum,
In addition we hope to implement some additional features

Primarily back room issue were resolved.  The forum should be faster and more stable now. This was the major thing that needed to be accomplished.
Then we created a test area for future implementation of upgrades.

We tried to implement a few upgrades but we ran into a few snags & they were taking too long so we bagged them for now & will work on them on the test forum.

I was hoping you were going to say you threw out all the dead weight and problematic members!  ;)

Glad we're back up! Just 8 more months now!  ;D

I'm so glad to see this place back! I was getting worried when 'for a weekend' stretched into more than a week...

Great to see everyone!

Also did a few CSS template changes.  Made the colors match and changed all of the major buttons here and there. ;p

Yes, that one snag... *sighs* I'll keep at it.  Ha ha.

believe me, resolving of the data base issue was ... stressful... to say the least

We may go down for a day or two in the coming months to put in place upgrades but not for an extended time.

*loving* the new buttons btw....just so it's official
