    Re: BANGshift Forums Are Being Updated And Moved! READ THIS ALL FORUM PARTICIPANTS

    I was wondering about how another forum I use manages to still be on a much earlier version of vbulletin. 3.something and it works right, and this site is on 5.something, and it doesn't work right.

      Newer not always better...
      Iphone is an example.. Older version in one phone plays nicer than the updated in the other phone with the same model..
      Older version was flashing so bought another used (nobody but me uses 4...) And the updated ios is funky..

        It is not a requirement to upgrade to the latest version ... unless you want / need their technical assistance. The trap we fell into was customizing it so far away from the base version, trying to give everyone all the functionality they wanted. This made it almost impossible to maintain as each new version needed so much massaging.

          That's understandable. The older one does not do stuff that we can do here. Yet it still does it's job.

          hopefully the new system will keep us all mostly happy!

            How much lead notice will we get so we can stock up on withdrawal drugs?
            Chad said; "We are currently doing a migration simulation that should help us determine how long the BANGshift Forum will need to be shut off for the real migration. As soon as we have that estimate we'll share it with you and give you 24 hours notice before flipping the switch and turning off the current forum. We expect that the forum will be turned off for a couple days, but we'll give you more info as we have it. We will also be updating a splash page that you'll see instead of the forum to tell you how our progress is coming along and keep you informed of any new developments as they happen. "

                    It's possible, but who knows what lurks in Chad's mind ?

                            yeah, I deleted something like 5000 pictures from their hosting site - I'll be damned before I put them back there again. I will, eventually, recap what was there (I have a couple surgeries coming up where I'll have little to do but rest).... but why would I ever trust them again?
