Forum overhaul coming

Post by Spork » Sun Jul 22, 2018 8:07 pm

So, this forum software is old enough that I can no longer use the ReCaptcha software available to it, as Google has retired it. I will be moving to newer forum software. That will require multiple iterations of upgrades and the removal of this theme, so things will look different for a bit.
Never had much, grew up with nothing
But the music, well it was something
Been down and out, I've been on top of the world,
World that keeps on spinning on a turntable.

So, the upgrade here went fine. However, upgrading has broken phpBB authentication on the Wiki, so I can no longer edit the wiki.

In order to upgrade the wiki to current, I have to upgrade PHP by 2 major versions. This has *MASSIVE* potential to break lots of things web-based. Since I host more than just Mekwars.org, I owe it to my other hosted sites to give them warning.

With luck, this will be mostly invisible to all of you. Be patient if it is not.
