Forum Database Error

I hate to bring this up, since I'm sure Staff has noticed and trying vigilantly to fix it, but apparently the forums gone whack again. Yup, we got a typical case of about 200,00 posts and 12,00 members missing from the forums statistics. How wonderful, I've seen this many times before on Rpgamer's boards so I guess it relates to this forum software, which seems to be a quite rare choice. Anyway, please fix it. sad.gif

    There is only one way to fix it and that is to dump this software. Someone mentioned earlier that they intend to move to vHulletin but I have no clue when that move is happening. We'll have to wait for a staff member to answer you.

    Why is that the only way to fix it? I don't mind this software but its true Vbulletin has the lowest amount of bugs as far forum software goes.

    Because this software is buggy and isn't regularly updated unlike VBulletin which is a commercial product.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    From what I understand, the move is in the planning stages right now. There's a potential problem with migrating the database to the new software, which Firemyst is trying to find a solution to. Last resort would be to dump the data and start fresh, but that is absolutely last resort. You're going to have to be patient.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    Another forum bug - it turned everyone's avatar and signature into that of a new member.

    Yes and if you don't have enough posts to have a title and you got "UNREGISTERED" as your title, I'll be glad to erase that. (No, I will not give you a title. You have to earn it)

    Hopefully the problems will be fixed soonish ^^ And we'll be on a not-so-darn-buggy forum.
