Please don't be alarmed if the Andrax.Net forums are offline tomorrow morning (Sunday 1/10). Thats the tenative schedule for our forum upgrade from our existing IPB version to the current release.

Barring any serious complications the downtime should be approximately 2 hours give or take. I don't anticipate having all the skin customizations done by then, so they could remain a work in progress. ;)


**Update 2:31 Pacific**

The upgrade went a little slower then expected. I had forgotten to take into account how long it would take to re-index all 85,000+ posts. Everything is online and should be operational. There are some skin modifications that are still going to happen, the buttons will likely be re-updated but thats all stuff that can be done on the fly while the board is online.

The new features are ready for action. There are a number of members that have been looking forward to features such as "Ignore User". This is configured from your "My Controls" link. Under Options, the third link down should be "Manage Ignored Users". From there you can add or remove users to your ignored list. You will not see the posts or replies of anyone you have ignored, but will see the post box and any replies from other users etc.

Enjoy, and welcome back to Andrax.Net.

Doesn't look very down.

Oh yeah, and you should hack SMONS into the board sometime. ;)

Just give him some cookies and milk laced with valium and stand the crib upside down over him. ;)

Well, it looks like SMONS isn't going to be included for the moment (darn) but after doing some quality thinking in the bathroom, I realized that it's probably possible to hack it in by replacing javascript files, but i'll have to wait and poke around and see after the forum upgrade. <_<

On a related note, SMONS v1.6 is out now. B)

I just realized that me putting "hack" in there is probably making Andrax nervous. :lol:

Again, I think I need a version of my avatar holding a big hammer and saw, and some drawings, which he is holding upside down. :P

I find that both of the borderline skins are ugly.

The default isn't that great, but it's a major improvement.
