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..

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!

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.
