Due to the last downtime caused by an upgrade, we thought that it would be best to share communication as they occur in the future.
There was some frustration regarding the loss of posts, and other information during that time period. Rightly so.

This weekend, the team is looking to schedule some significant updates to our Xenforo platform. These upgrades will provide the community enhanced features, and security. At the same time, we are cleaning up current incompatibilities, and other hygiene items. The forum will be put into maintenance mode at 5PM EST, so no posts will be able to be made, stopping us from losing posts in a rollback scenario. After testing in the development environment, the team is ready to move forward.

Here is the projected timeframe:

Start Date: 12/19/2020
Start Time: 5:00PM EST

End Date: 12/19/2020
End Time: 6:00PM EST

For the 44 answered questions being migrated, we will need to set answers. The correct answers for the Questions and Answer threads did not get ported over perfectly. Staff will set the answers manually from documented values from the current production environment. Thankfully there is only 44 of them. If you see a discrepancy, holler.

The upgrade is complete! The DB backup took longer than expected. Status, and up/down votes on the Q&A threads did not move. Staff will be setting the status from what was documented. Anything out of the normal, please reach out !

Thanks,
