I got the gears back!
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion

Huzzah, it's worked!  Oh I say, the look is very different now isn't it?
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Country flags were lost in the upgrade, but I've reinstalled the modification. Everyone will need to reset their country flag on their "Modify Profile" page.

You're quite welcome!

Well done indeed! Well done for the technical aspects and the perseverance. I'll have a look around the back end over the weekend to see if there is anything else that might be suggested, but I suspect you know it all very well by now.

Bloody good show! I know it has been a bit of a challenge for you sir.

Sorry to add to your woes, I dabbled with the forum look in my profile, now I can't see my profile button and posts look a little off.

No bold,ittalic insert image in a reply?..........



No rush.

I think that's fixed it. For now, everyone should stick with the default board theme, as the others are now broken in various ways.

Huzzah! Had me worried for a bit it might go down again, but I see now all's well.

None too worried about themes and colours and whatnot, for now stability is what matters.
Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Well its nice to know everything's up and running safely.

The colour scheme does seem a little off after the familiar shades of brown and mustard, but the old girl could do with a fresh lick of paint, its not as if it's particularly garish.

I've managed to work out how to change the Spam profiles to Banned User and how to ban the spammers.
I can't work out how to remove posts.

It literally only just now occurred to me that some users might have been using non-default themes, all of which are now broken. I think I've now reset everyone to the default theme.

We have not yet moved servers, as it is considered extremely reckless, even among Sparks, to change too many factors at once. Now that the upgrade is out of the way I can concentrate on the move.

The forum is now upgraded and running. The old theme is broken, though, so I apologize for the present ugliness. I shall begin addressing that issue as soon as I have recovered my equilibrium and composure.

Congratulations! And thank you for your work. So the trick of using your own box did it eh?

Sorry I've been absent. My roommate got Covid and my job is sputtering it's last words. So o was a bit busy this week. But i was monitoring your messages via Twitter (those who are in the platform should follow the account)

Do we perform the re-decoration ourselves? Or do we call Mr. Bean?

OK gonna admit that I lament the loss of the old theme. Setting aside jokes of being snowblinded? The software upgrade makes it worthwhile.

Hats off to you for the work.
