Forum Upgraded
« on: May 27, 2020, 11:04:53 pm »
Hi everyone,
In preparation for our eventual migration I've updated the forum to its latest version. Here's a few things you probably noticed and a few you might have missed.
  • Cookies reset, which required everyone to log back in ::)
  • All add-on modifications were automatically disabled
  • Forum loads a lot faster  :P
  • Some features might be broken or missing :-[

Special thanks to @rjm65 for noticing the broken Posts menu which was one such add-on that wasn't compatible with the current version. I decided to rebuild the Posts menu and rename it Unread Posts because... Well that's what it showed us.

So if you've noticed any odd/new behavior or a missing feature that you swear was here three days ago. Let me know.

Later,
Joe

Yes, same for me.  Thank you rjm65 and josephd.  Logging in is much speedier now. :)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

@josephd I step off the forum for a few days (work and life) and all these good things happen!!!  8)
First thing I noticed was that posting and replying is now instant!!!  Thank you much for that and all you do.
