    I wish the "Buy Us A Beer" function worked. From what I understand, that footer is going to disappear. But I'll put in an order for an organic chocolate stout, hahaha!

    Yes, it is, and it's delicious.
    Things should be working again, i.e., no error messages, but searches may not work just yet. Thanks!

    It looks like we lost the option to delete our own posts.

    By any chance, is there a list somewhere that could be shared with members of which features are no longer compatible? Or alternatively (and I think better), maybe the error message for non-compatible features needs to change? It would be much more informative to receive an error message stating 'This feature is not compatible due to the upgrade' rather than a cryptic message of a server failure. Server failures can be due to many things, not simply a non-compatible feature!

    If the error message was clearer, we, the members, would be less likely to be taking up your time (and other staff members time) every time we tried using a non-compatible feature and received a message we did not understand!

    Thanks for your work on this.

    There is no way for us to change what the error messages say.

    All the server knows is that it was asked to do a task but it was not able to do so, so it gives you an error message, it does not know the difference between errors it just logs the error & any needed info for the Database admins and Coders to find and fix the issue.

    @Dr. Jekell: rats. Oh vell. It was worth a try. How about a list somewhere of which features are not compatible? Maybe under 'Forum Functionality Issues'?

    L'chaim!

    The change is fine. There have been a lot of ups and downs on here with various members ! And I know quite a few people have left the forum. I have myself hsd a few disagreements with various forum members and at one point considered leaving the forum. What stopped me ? Well the wealth of information and help your can get from people on here is fantastic and that is the reason I did'nt bin the forum. Even with the people who have left it is still a forum I enjoy.

    Glad you stuck it out, Pipey. I always enjoy the EDC perspectives of our UK members.

    Most of what you are referring to has "self corrected," so it is all good now. ;)

    As with most times forums I have been a member of have upgraded, at first it looked horrible - everything moved, and all the little tells and references I scanned through quickly when visiting changed.

    And as with every other forum change I have seen, after a week it seems normal and everything looks great :)
