I just hope they get rid of those stupid badge-avatar things.

Depending on much they've modded IPB, I think we'll get full avatars.

Was browsing other invision powered boards. Its rather clean looking and avatar pics are good. Not cluttered with text over the image. Maybe they are adding Sansar related forums?

It's nice software, it's come very far since it's first release days. I would of thought they'd of gone for Xenforo (previous vBulletin developers) which SL used to run on, back in the day!

I'd of thought they'd get a lot more for their money if they chose XF.

IPB is nice. Surprised they ended up using that because I was about to mention that in this thread since I used that before in the past for one of my forums.

If you want, you can have the SL status report update you by email or text message when the SL forums come back.

As many of you have noticed, the Community migration is taking a bit longer than planned.

A bit longer than planned. They wanted to release the new forum by February 27th . Now its March 3rd and there is no sign of the forum comming back online soon.

well from what I'm understanding converting from lithium based forum to ipb is time consuming, it's not just a direct swap the database and be done with it, it's conversion conversion conversion and praying the converter does not stall out lol.

It's annoying it's taking them so long but, when I recall the things that have gone wrong with previous botched attempts to transfer the forums from one format to another, I'm glad they're taking the time to do it properly.

The Scripting Forum and Scripts Library are certainly valuable reference and learning resources in their own right, and I imagine that the other creation forums are, too. Similarly, I would think that the Answers and Knowledge Base sections are useful to people who are new to SL, at least people who bother to use them.

Previous format changes have left whole sections unsearchable and with the script formatting so badly broken that many examples are unreadable and unusable (literally so -- sections of the script have vanished in the transfer), and I would be very loath to see that happen again.

Bing is still a little slow.

That is an example of LL doing a poor job of allocating their money. They have a private delivery boy on staff for their long nights correcting problems and he got the pizza order wrong. This message lets them know the order was fulfilled incorrectly.

In reality that looks like a badly configured Apache web server if it's reporting itself as root@localhost.
