I want to give everyone a head's up that some big changes are coming soon to the forum.
I am preparing to migrate the forum from Simple Machine Forum (SMF) v1.x to SMF v2.x. This is a major upgrade and will require that I take the forum down for a day while I convert the database structure and get everything moved over.
You can rest assured knowing that I have already moved the forum over to SMF 2.x in a test environment and everything is working working as expected. I'm in the process of migrating some of the unique modifications to the new software, as well as building a new theme with similar graphics.
My best guess is that I'll be performing the migration on Saturday, March 9, which means the forum will be unavailable for most of that day.
