Hello fellow Seibertronians!

By now, most have noticed that the forums have temporarily disappeared. Ryan is currently in the process of upgrading the forums to the new phpbb. So not only will the forums look a little bit different, we will finally have Transtopia moved into Seibertron.com as well!

So have a little patience while we continue to try to get all the bugs out and attempt to make Seibertron.com even better!

I thought the "Voice of Destruction" thing was on the 14th...

Either way, can't wait to see the new PHPBB forums! Bring it on!

This isn't the voice of destruction. This is kind of a surprise for us as well!
Re: Seibertron.com is getting upgraded! (582332)
Posted by Seibertron on December 10th, 2007 @ 9:49pm CST
Nope ... this has nothing to do with the voice of destruction. This is me starting a new job on Wednesday and having a few extra minutes today at my old job to tinker around with phpbb3 uninterrupted. I figured out a few things that I was having trouble understanding about the new phpbb3 and on a spur of the moment tonight I decided that I'd start the upgrade process. I've already imported all of the users and forum posts from Transtopia's message board. phpBB's import script is currently importing all of the attachments. It's running slowly because this is on the live server but I hope that you guys will have something to use in the next few hours. Keep your optics crossed XD :)

And now we're on with the forum posts, which will take a while. I'm going to go watch some TV and I'll check back in a little while to see how everything's progressing. :)

Damn guys another upgrade? Well thats why this is the best TF site around. It just keeps getting better and better.
Re: Seibertron.com is getting upgraded! (582342)
Posted by Megatron Wolf on December 10th, 2007 @ 10:04pm CST
Just thought of a question, will the forums be put back the way they were or will we have to remake the topics?
Re: Seibertron.com is getting upgraded! (582343)
Posted by Seibertron on December 10th, 2007 @ 10:07pm CST
FYI ... as far as Transtopia goes, only their forums will be imported. The rest of Transtopia will still exist at tfmaster.com until I have time to import the rest of their content here to Seibertron.com. I'm sure Bill's up there in ol' Kitbash heaven cursing away at me for taking so damn long to get all of this accomplished. I blame the phpBB folks for taking so long to release the final version of phpBB3! :D

Are we gonna get messed up again like the Great Forum Crash & lose all our posts? Although I admit it is sorta cool to be registered on an internet site in 1967 long before internet existed....hehe
Re: Seibertron.com is getting upgraded! (582345)
Posted by Seibertron on December 10th, 2007 @ 10:08pm CST
Megatron_Wolf: all of the content and user accounts will be imported from the old phpBB2 system to the new phpBB3 forums here on Seibertron.com.

How easy is it to transfer the forum from PHPBB2 to PHPBB3?

Ryan's never made a custom, but Alex_Kingdom has done a couple of Alternator customs, his best known one would be Nightbeat.

Not going to happen tonight. Too many things for me to do on a work night. I'll take a shot at it later this week.

AWESOME!!
I cant wait for transtopia to make it over here! This is such a great time to be a TF customizer and hopefully more than one person will get credit for being one now with such new raw talent making its way here!

I don't know exactly what this computer code stuff does, but will the kink be ironed out so that all the text stops being centered? That's what I'm getting right now.

Dude sorry to say it, but you just sound bitter here. Chillax a little bit, we all know there are others, some are just more prominent and get more attention.

Upgrade? really feels and looks like a downgrade... I hope this is just stage one of this process

Probably to correct glitches that we wouldnt notice but Ryan knew of. Things that work ok now but could pose a problem in the future.
