Would it be possible to work towards getting the site upgraded? At the very least could we increase the PM folder size for users I think most would agree it fills up quickly. If the mods asked for donations Im sure enough would be able to help assist with an upgrade.

Anyone else have any thoughts or ideas?

I deserve to be ripped a new one for the length of time it's taken to upgrade the software. Totally unacceptable. Part of it is due to the heavy web dev work I'm doing at the office right now; it's hard to muster the energy to program when I'm already doing it all day. Regardless of that, the forum software has been at the front of my mind for the last month and I've been itching to get back into it.

New toys to play with tend to get me fired up and working, so the Intel-based Mac I'm buying this weekend should do the trick Expect some movement very soon.

Btw, I increased the PM limit to 100.

I can do that for you if you need, I'm good at chewing people out. I do it at least once a day almost!

Thanks Jay, I know I haven't been around that long and don't have much "weight" around forum but I appreciate what you've done so far

At least the site isn't dead.

Started up work again on the software. I forgot how close to completion it actually was.

Fixing the last few bugs and tweaking the interface.

It's coming along. Probably entering beta this week. A few last things to finish up.

I've been busy preparing my presidential campaign.

Actually, I put the forums on hold for a couple weeks due to some personal responsibilities and fanedits.com, which is about to enter beta

Fanedits.com will probably be the testing ground for the new forum software, after which I'll upgrade originaltrilogy.com.

Yessss! Fanedits dot com, the original FE. Definitly looking forward to that one.

So Jay, you got a time frame for when fanedits.com will be up? By saying it will be a testing ground, do you mean it will be up and running before OT.com gets the upgrade?

Moth3r and Zion are tooling around the fanedits.com alpha right now. I still have some work to do on it, but the full beta should be ready for testing next week.

I'm thinking fanedits.com will be a better place to release the new forum software because it'll be a fresh installation without porting over a bunch of data. Once it's been shown to work relatively bug-free over there, then I'll upgrade ot.com.

I really can't wait, I'm excited.

After some alpha testing, Zion and Moth3r had some feature requests/enhancements. I'm taking some time to build those into the fanedits.com beta, hence the slight delay. It's coming together very nicely.

I'm hoping the fan editing community finds the site as valuable as we think it will be.

So that's why it's not yelling at me anymore! Thanks, Jay. Much appreciated! The PM limit and the avatar issue were the only things that really ever bugged me about the forums, anyway. So half of my beefs are taken care of! Haha.

I still can't get my avatar uploaded. It's the required 50x50 and is 3.75 kb, so I am thrown for a loop.
