Site Maintenance on Christmas Day

Just to give everyone a heads up that I plan on doing a huge site upgrade to Wrist Twisters on Christmas Day.

This change will involve a mega-huge change to the forum software we are using, upgrading it to the next generation version.

My plan is to do it during the evening hours, but I may bring the site down during the daytime to make some changes.

And expect some new threads about Wrist Twisters as well, including the Rules and Guidelines of our community, as well as a personal statement from me about my intent and vision with Wrist Twisters.

Lots more to come for sure!

Yeah, but there are some plugins (Awards and Casino) that are "breaking" in the sandbox environment. I'm going to continue doing more testing today to see if I feel comfortable about the upgrade.

Update... the new generation of the forum software is amazing, but it's so fresh off the presses that there is quite a bit of old code that breaks in the new environment. Even the CSS design changes are going to be changed/revised in the next two iteration bumps of the current version. That's been the least of my problems today, the Award system and the Casino part of the site are essentially broken and not working and I fear what WT would be like with those two functions missing.

So this big upgrade is going to have wait a bit longer...

I need to get some sleep, I'm running on fumes these days. I will be posting up more this weekend, I have a lot on the agenda for WT still.

Yes, I suspected that might be the case. :001_smile:
