|Updating Our Aging Message Board
By Samantha Blackwell, IAIJ Inc.
We will finally be updating our old message board (phpBB2) to the latest version of this same type of message board. This will happen slowly and as experience has shown us it will probably be a long and labour intensive task. So for a while we will actually have two message boards at IAIJ with the same posts until the new one as all posts copied to it.
This should not create confusion but if you find yourself on an IAIJ board with a different look but the same posts, you will now know why. When complete this old board will be disabled and all the links will be changed to the new board.
There were some suggestions about keeping the old board going and just continuing with the new board. This may not be possible as the php version on the server to enable the latest boards is incompatible with the old board, so we have to do it this way.
More news as it happens will be posted to this forum.
