Hello everyone! I'm going to be taking the forum offline for a few hours on the evening (~6-9pm UTC-7) of 29 June, 2020. This is in order to do the following:

1. Migrate to a new server/upgrade the OS. Our current host is getting pretty long in the tooth, and we're nearing the end of available security patches. This will also be better hardware, which you may or may not notice.
2. Perform a forum upgrade. Should have minimal impact (fingers crossed :-)).

During this time, the forum will probably be on- and offline intermittently until the maintenance is complete. Let me know if there are any issues with that time window.

I don't foresee any issues with the time, thanks for letting us know, we appreciate your work!

Okay, things should be back to normal. Let me know if you encounter weirdness. I'm also going to apply some version upgrades to the forum software itself.

Version upgrades applied successfully (as far as I can tell).

Excellent, site seems vastly more responsive and quicker!  Thanks again!

EDIT: Hmm, seems there is a sort of odd "bug" with quotation marks (" and ") and some characters like (the u with an umlat, alt+251), for instance, I had to change my signature to remove both.  Also, in the title of this thread: https://www.second-apocalypse.com/index.php?topic=3018.msg49031#new

They show up fine in a preview, but won't let the message be posted.

Let me try a different character.  (Seems none of those would work...)

Also, if you try to edit a post, the "double post protection" stops you, which isn't a big deal, but is a little odd.

Also, the Chat/Egora thing seems to have some sort of arbitrary entry limit, that I can't quite discern exactly.

There seems to also be a content limit on posts, much to my dismay...

Can anybody go through the available admin panels and look for the settings that control all that? It's likely that they are there, it sounds like something that should be customizable.

I'm talking with Sovin, and I've handled the minutia for the most part before, but he's driving the bus right now ;).

Hi there!
Any reason why the forum would stop working on Tapatalk after the upgrade?

We're working on it, fair person. Be patient with us.

Also, since the Egora won't currently accept links, I found three of 7-9 generations of hats for everyone's enjoyment: https://ibb.co/5nMvgVn

Edit: And yes, unapologetically, that is Scraggles, who I've had since three, and Stripe, who I've had since six, in the background. They've literally travelled Canada and a bit of Asia with me.
