Housekeeping plans and such

Post by BobbyK » Tue Jan 05, 2016 3:49 am

I've got three major agenda items that are going to be addressed, in no particular order:

1. Updating the landing page to remove certain... verbiage.
2. Unborking the Wiki once and for all.
3. Updating the phpBB software that the forum runs on.

The first two, I'm just going to do, since they're either simple, or already broken so who cares if I break it worse. :twisted:
The last of these items is likely to be the biggest, and most disruptive. I will be pulling backups of the database, and the site files, and running test upgrades offline so I can guestimate how much downtime we're going to be looking at. Once I have an estimate (which I will double), I'll figure out a minimally disruptive upgrade window.

I'll announce that once I figure it out.

Awesome. Good luck.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.
