As many of you discovered, logins stopped working a few days ago on the forum. Service is now restored but I am looking at migrating the entire forum to my own server as we seem to be getting a lot of problems lately.

I was trying to make a post about Gerry O'Hara who has recently passed away (Rodney Marshall posted about it on his Twitter) but it won't let me as it keeps logging me out every time I submit. I tried to contact you on Patreon, Piers, as I can't do so here.

Oh, sorry Franky, Patreon is hopeless at informing me of incoming messages. Best to use my email.

Much appreciated.

All the best

I don't think I have it! Or I erased it. Probably in a computer failure!

Thanks Piers for fixing it, and so quickly! I noticed it yesterday, but thought I'll try again tomorrow and then see if the issue persists, by that time you already had it fixed. Very happy with the change, anything that puts it more on own control is a good thing in my opinion.

Okay, so I'm arranging a database backup and will then try to convert it myself.
We might lose a few posts during the process if they are posted while I'm doing it, I'll let you know when I start the conversion process.

I have *finally* got a stable version of this forum running on my local webserver as phpBB2, now for the attempt to convert it to something a bit more modern that my public web host supports...

That is brilliant progress. Thank you! I hope it continues to go well. Or even better Smile

There's a link to the forum on Alan Hayes's site at http://www.avengers.culttv.uk/

I don't know if there are other links that would need re-pointing. One for (much) later perhaps!

OMG, I think I've converted it!! The last few days' posts will disappear but I'll try to do a data dump and upload to my host and we should be up and running!

I'm thinking after we migrate, I'll change this forum to be locked with one announcement appearing everywhere (if poss) to redirect people to the new forum.

Sounds like a good idea. As for the past few days' posts, as long as they're locked here and visible it should be fine. I don't care if mine disappear, I just write nonsense for the sake of writing Smile

sounds good to me...hopefully,this will reduce the number of glitches...and make it easier to ID 'em, and correct as needed.

Please visit https://dissolute.com.au/avengersfanforum/ and let me know how you go, your current login details should still work.

I'm in the process of sorting out some of the features, phpBB3 is quite different to phpBB2!

Yes, works for me! I replied to this thread's counterpart there. Excellent that we don't have to re-register.

Excellent. I'm installing styles to try to make it more unique, it works very differently...
