Yeah, went back for me too. At least it's working now, lots of bugs in the new version. Maybe the switched back for a bit while they're working some out.

Let's hope so. It was growing on me but...Lotsa bugs. Maybe they can fix the 3 day window thing. Or just lock us out while they do it so that we have everything there where when we get back.

Yeah I am on the old one now to, but I was liking the new stuff. Hopefully they get the bugs worked out within a couple of days.

going to work on some issues that I could not resolve over the weekend timeframe. we will fix the things we found and reschedule a launch. we will look at a way to do an incremental migration too next time so you don't have to copy posts from the old forum. our actual data migration takes 2.5 days as our db is 30GB so the long time frame introduces many issues. also we had lots of IE users reporting problems that we need to look into further.

Another option is to consider that it works fine as it is and doesn't need to be "fixed' or "upgraded."

Why the need to look for a cure for success?

The RC twilight zone! How much would it suck to be the only one stuck in the old one?

I like this one fine, I chose rcu because I didn't like the traditional layout of other forums, and now were going over to that. Bummer!

Yeah, I too had problems on the new format. But I admit, it does look nice.

I hope when all the bugs are killed, the new site will be more efficient and faster. I really want to see all the new features.

Yea. It was only up for about 5 hours by my calculations though. From about 5PM EST to around 10PM EST. You're likely to have missed it. Out of all the browsers I have on my computer only Opera worked. Not Safari, IE7, IE8, Chrome, or Firefox.

That's odd. My old (8yrs) bottom of the line HP laptop was working fine, once I was able to log on, and I'm running IE 6.0.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the new version of the software. I just hope the admin gives a little warning next time. Also, I'm sure they are very busy right now but a little history/info/idea of whats coming and what to expect in a sticky at the top of each fourm would help to dispell some of the rumors, misinformation and just plain "sky is falling" stuff that's floating around now.

Bummer, I didn't get to see it!

Yeah I liked the layout of this forum too. I don't always have a lot of time to kill on forums, so I had to pick just one to read and post on. But then again I chose RCU mostly for the people on here, not the layout.

I couldn't use the new one. Well I could, but when I logged in, and refreshed forums, I was logged out.
