Hello,
As some of you know I will be doing some upgrades to this very forum. I have reached a point that I must bring the system down to apply changes. I will be doing this on Friday June 5 from 12am Central Standard time until 2am Central Standard time.
As always, there is a possibility that the upgrade may not go as desired, so I have a plan to revert back to the previous version if required.

UPGRADES: June 5 from 12a CST - 2am CST

Thanks,
-Paul

Yes, there are a ton of new features with phpBB3, including topic/post merging. The complete comprehensive list of v2 vs v3 features is here:
http://www.phpbb.com/about/features/

v3 will also allow attachments, image uploading, and automatic image thumbnails - just a few things that would be incredibly helpful.

This will be so much easier than having to deal with 3rd party image hosting. My concern is the Lynxmotion server storage space; We really don't post to many images, but over time it will add up. I wonder if there is a purge feature?

I'm worried Beth... I'm worried... :lol:

Worry not, Mike! We've got a 1TB HDD (mirrored) on the server, and that? Will last quite a long time. We'd rather add another HDD than purge images and other uploaded files, anyway.

Cool! I wonder if there is any function to attach youtube video in the forum, instead of just link? Thanks!

LOL I missed that bit of information. I'm guessing it did not go well.

Actually, this will happen in 1 hour as it is 11:05pm... though it looks like it put the 5th when I should have put the 6th. Looks like there is only 1 other user online now.

Well, if what I just saw was a test of the new PhP (?) system, I don't think I like all the stuff you may have to do to use it. I hope I'm wrong. Not everybody is an SQL expert.
