Not as far as I'm aware Adam. I'll see if there's a MOD available for it...

Mike (SL), I can understand your worries. I've seen enough upgrade disasters from poor preparation/planning in my professional life but as they say on the front of the Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy...

Don't Panic!

I do have TT on my phones here so I have all the wherewithal for testing..

Noted and for those of you that also post on the BXC I'll be installing Tapatalk on there too..

The new servers have been patched against the 'Shellshock' vulnerability...

And we're all done. It's looking good.

I recommend you all flush your Browser caches to remove all traces of the old forums..

Please alert me to any odd problems you might see...

The upgrade and migration was a big one and it's now a brand new forum on a brand new server...

This forum just won't let my old Xantia die - my avatar has mysteriously gone back to the silver problem child during the migration... :rofl2:

Edit: at least ROLF made it through unscathed this time...! :-D

How odd :? I do know why actually and it was the base files I used on the new server had the old set of Avatars in them. Not as bad as me. I lost mine completely!

That's screwed now, unless Simon is my twin and has been tarting around young Colombian women...

EDIT : all avatars that I see are appearing as mine :O

No problems whatsoever here. Haven't flushed the cache yet, that will come later.

A lot of avatars seem missing, including Steve's and Mike's in this very thread (tried in a couple of browsers to make sure it wasn't a caching issue).

I was seeing my new avatar on some devices and old on others and no amount of cache flushing was helping...

I re-uploaded my avatar and I think mine is ok now... Do you see the right one Ben ? (Dark not silver...)

I see no avatar for you by the way.

I'm seeing them all ok now, apart from when they are quoted.
