Site downtime - Forum upgrades - 4th to 6th of June

Hello all..

Just to let you know we'll be experiencing a bit of down time later while we migrate over the newly upgraded forums from the test server. Hopefully it shouldn't take too long but we need to check everything is working ok before opening the doors back up. Probably allow 2-4 hours to be safe.

Hopefully you're not all too freaked out by the new style. We've tried to keep it familiar and there will be tweaks and adjustments as we go along. New logo hopefully at some point too.

If once its up and running you spot anything thats not right please do post here so we can fix it.

Thanks!

** Edit - A few things have come up and as the guys helping make the changes are volunteers we've had to reschedule. Down time will now be some time between now and Thursday evening if all goes to plan. **

That was from the old servers. We've got a test server running to work on before making things live here. We've upgraded the forum software and restyled it over on the test server as the old style system isn't used anymore. Now its all up and running we're going to move it across to here, the main site server. To do that we need to take the site offline and sync the data up then move it across.

Basically we're bringing the forum software up to date. It hadn't been updated in years and the style files are ancient. Lots of issues and vulnerabilities that need fixing asap.

Yup..

New(ish) look. We've just gone very simple and with colours from the old site for the moment. Planning to hopefully involve a designer down the line if we can find one who wants to volunteer. We didn't want to scare Codeblue too much by making any extreme changes. :P
