Board update *COMPLETE*

Post by Lester » Mon May 29, 2017 9:18 pm

Believe it or not, the board update when smoother than I anticipated. The fact the board loads and we have our posts still intact, as well as our user database is better than I anticipated.

But smooth is subjective... instead of creamy JIFF, this is more like those old school mashed potatoes Grandma used to make... we have lumps.

--UPDATE: Password issue is corrected. You should be able to log in and out now.

Issue two is the search index... it's going to have to be rebuilt eventually... but it's currently a low priority. (You'll see an error when you post a message, but the message still writes.)

Issue three --- Whatever else *YOU* find. If something glitches out, let me know. If you can't reach me through the board, use lstr@mindspring.com

Thank you for your patience.

It is absolutely my pleasure, folks.

As a follow-up to the registration process... we've had 300 new accounts sign up and so far not a single one of them as been real.

I need to filter through them some more, but pretty sure it is all robots.

Yep. All robots.

If you know of folks that are interested in joining, reach out to them. I'm working on SPAMBOT mitigation efforts, but it's on an "as time permits" basis.

Lastly - Search index is fixed. Dropping the announcement status on this post.

Spoke too soon... now there is a FATAL ERROR being presented if you attempt to post or reply to a message. It's working, and it's posting (manually jump back to the forum and you'll see it there) but the error is there none the less.

Work in progress.

Unintentional benefit - the new software is mobile device friendly.

Lester, we appreciate all of your efforts. I check this board virtually every day, and have learned so much from so many over the years. THANK YOU for everything!

Nice paint job. Thanks, Lester, for your efforts. I had a friend who volunteered to admin a busy travel forum. He lasted about 2 weeks before he threw in the towel.
