Neowin News: Forum hassles and mySQL errors

ahh Part 2 but completely unrelated. This one is to do with the errors we have had in our forums over the past 2 weeks.

Redmak has put his protective helmet on today and is as I type busy fixing the forums. We are upgrading to the latest release of VBulletin which is now at v2.22 (we have 2.21 installed) however, due to the fact that we have installed a huge amount of modifications to the board making it do what we want (hehe) a simple upgrade is out of the question.

Redmak has decided to re-install the board completely at v2.22. One reason being because the polls do not work, selecting avatars does not work and among other things you cannot preview your message before posting. We have never had such errors in the past so fixing it should be no problem. It could be to do with the mySQL and server downtime that something got screwed we don't know.

So for all those that noticed errors in the forums, we hope to have that fixed today, there will be a short downtime in the forums when the installation starts but this should be no longer than a few minutes. No messages and data will be deleted or changed during the re-installation.
