Forums down for Upgrade

Postby Candy » 21 Dec 2009, 09:50

The forums will be down for an upgrade on Tuesday 22 December. Hopefully, they will be back up the same day but I can't say exactly how long for. Thanks to those who tested the changes.

Apologies to the LotRO people who have maintenance tomorrow. You'll have to chill out on the Facebook group instead... :)

I thought you accidentally "mistold" your code and upgraded another person's website ;)

That being said, I no longer auto-log of and stay logged on the whole time, cheers!

I'll look into restoring those. I accidentally set the topic to auto-prune instead of enabling Quick Reply. Restoring a single Forum is not as easy as I had hoped. Leave it with me...
