    Due to numerous issues we have been experiencing with WowBB, OCDO will be moving to vBulletin in the VERY near future. I will keep everyone updated on the schedule as I get more information.

    We will be migrating the entire forum (users, threads, etc) but we will also be maintaining the old forum in read-only mode with links to the new forum so that existing Google links will continue to lead people to the site.

    Nothing is required of anyone at this time. I just wanted to let everyone know.

    Thanks!

    That may explain my corrupted style sheet.css?

    Thanks for the info. Thanks for the forum.

    The CSS isn't corrupted... it just uses an Internet Explorer specific CSS property that shows up as a bug in non-IE browsers.

    It is possible the newer IE versions won't support it either... since Microsoft doesn't always continue support for its own inventions. But Opera, Firefox, Safari, etc. will not be able to parse the code properly...

    I don't know for sure, haven't used Windows or IE in years but I used to develop web sites.

    Just FYI...

    Could this be the cause of my Firefox runaway processes the past several days?

    Good choice John :celebrate

    But it appears from the irregular appearance of the forums that the offending CSS has been disabled.

    In an effort to try to fix my rather pesky runaways, I just yesterday installed the NoScript plugin, which happened to coincide with the change in appearance of the boards. Spooky... I guess the question will be answered if I now remove the plugin and the runaways stay gone.

    Awesome......I'm on 3 other forums that are V-Bulletin. Never seem to have an issue on those sites.

    Then again...haven't really had any problems with WowBB either.....just minor.

    Good luck on the move to vB. Good choice.

    Two of my sites were moved from phpBB to vB last year. One of them moved with essentially zero problems, but the largest one took nearly six months to work the majority of the bugs out of (because of the number of strange and unusual hacks and rewrites that had been done to the original).

    Tomas,

    Thanks for the well-wishes.

    I have used zero hacks or mods here on WowBB so I hope it will go smoothly. <crosses fingers>

    We will all know shortly.

    Thanks for the heads up mate. Can I come too? Haz.
    When a criminal invades your home and has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

    My Definition of Gun Control: The idea that dozens of people found dead in the Broadway Café, Tasmania, and many also seriously wounded, all while waiting for police, who were called to show up and protect them, is somehow morally superior to having several armed and therefore alive civilian's explaining to police how the attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    vBulletin Rocks.

    phpBB, too.

    This board? Not so much. Looking forward to it... keep up the great work team!

    Shoot. Looks exactly the same to me. I was hoping for better software. When people post massive long links or big pictures, the entire page becomes too wide and one must scroll side to side endlessly to read anything. Was hoping that wouldn't happen any more. We'll see.
    I will not knowingly initiate force. I am a self owner.

    Let the record show that I did not consent to be governed. I did not consent to any constitution. I did not consent to any president. I did not consent to any law except the natural law of "mala en se." I did not consent to the police. Nor any tax. Nor any prohibition of anything. Nor any regulation or licensing of any kind.

    The migration has been postponed. We are still on the old system. You will know when it's been done.

    Well, that's good news!! Last night I was writing a reply to a PM and when I clicked send I got the message that the update was in progress. Lost my reply... So, I figured it was done.

    Next time I have to remember the time difference. LOL It was only 5PM here.
