Will there be a way to bookmark individual posts for later reference?

I know I can follow topic, but never find a way to tag a post unless by blogging it.

 

Well 3 days of double duty browsing both forums isn't too bad :P

Only thing I'm worried about is links to posts being broken again. It made a lot of compilation posts broken and unusable.

Appreciate the notice.  Your site has expanded my game playing in ways I could not have imagined.  I am sure that it will work and hopefully lead to even further improvements.  Thanks for all that you do!!!

I will cross every applicable appendage, pray to every appropriate deity, even bribe the appropriate persons if that helps so this goes smoothly this time.

Plain and simple, hopefully it doesn't become a big disaster like fat women discovering Diet Coke (again).

That's quite a sadistic stance to take don't you think? Personally I really didn't like the new interface, I thought it was a huge clusterfudge. 

But I understand the necessity to keep the site up-to-date and functioning properly. I just hope it'll go more smoothly this time.

It is old? It has a very old of site software that is no more maintained? Is stopping us to create a better one? We all love the current structure (and the bbCode) and layout. But this is limiting. I love my car!!! Why I cannot go faster than 50 MPh? (~ 80 KHr) --> Because your engine is shit, you need to upgrade it. And because you upgrade the engine, upgrade also the covers, and the sits, and the accessories. in this Analogy it is this,Why i Love my old Car! No GPS! No Multimedia/Spyware Center No Chips what saves where /when and how i drive PS: I use WIN XP its suited me well.the Nintendo OS( Win8) is ugly and not comfortable and win 10 are spyware³,ugly,and annoying with his Cloud Computing here,Cortana there.

Normally the old adage of "never fuck with something that works" is true.....however, when your security is outdated and support dries up.....there is no choice in the matter.

 

Seriously, Ashal would only be doing this because it is necessary.  Stop and think how much work he is going to have to put in to make the move.  No one would take that on if it was just a shiny new coat of paint.   ;)

Security upgrades are needed and a must. Keeping current system exposes the site to security issues. This must be changed. Unfortunatly this can't be done with the old system.

 

Normally the old adage of "never fuck with something that works" is true.....however, when your security is outdated and support dries up.....there is no choice in the matter.

As gregathit states, The software upgrade isn't a shiny new coat of pain I suspect it is an entire rework of the code from bottom up. Very different from what we have now considering how old it is. Also being so very different from the previous system... might mean that we won't have all the functionality we had up to now. Just like the previous change over there will be some time to adjust and we will just have to accept it. Hopefully in time he will be able to add on some of the features we know and love however I for one will forgo some of the features for a solid reliable, dependable and safe site to use.

Um......I think you misread my post.  Unless you just quoted it by mistake.  I was sarcastically stating that Ashal would "not" be taking it on if it was "just" a new shiny new coat of paint.  IE....it isn't.   ;)

 

Between the support and security, the upgrade is a must.  No real choice in the matter for the Boss.  I feel very sorry for the amount of work he is going to have to put in to make this happen.......and the amount of shit he is going to receive for doing something he really must.  Talk about a kick in the balls.   :-/

...Between the support and security...

 

 

And keep in mind the performance boost by the upgrade to PHP V7, that is about double as fast compared to the actual used one.

And with all the guys using this site every hour a performance boost should be welcome.
