    Hi all,

    The forum is going to be upgraded, hopefully tonight, to XenForo.

    If you see a "forum closed" notice, that's all we're doing ;)

    The 'Anime Bargain' thread has also gone; I just assumed that was because I was the only person to post there much of the time :p

    I think you've caught a few active/popular/historically important threads in the crossfire while cleaning the chaff out. E.g. The 'Done' thread in the contributors forum has vanished.

    Sorry to reply to the thread so late - yes, vBulletin was crashing like a bandit while I was trying to get it into a manageable size and I took out some threads in the crossfire (essentially it deleted threads that were 4 years older or more, but it should have left any of them that had recent postings. It, erm, didn't do that bit.)

    The new forum is now up, everything should be copied across, so let me know if there are any serious issues I need to take care of.

    I suspect some permissions need to be changed for registered users as we don't have permissions to change signatures. Not too worried but I really need to either resize, or remove my banner image

    (Getting the URL from another XenForo site) http://www.uk-anime.net/forum/index.php?account/signature

    Gives the following error

    UK Anime Network - Error
    You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.

    Okay, on it. I think that link is for an older version. I had to edit mine as it looks like it was hijacked some time ago. I'll post the steps in here shortly.

    After all those old threads/posts were deleted, it seems I've managed to come 2nd place in post count at 2000 (Andy is just over 4000)

    With this, can I make a special request :)

    An article about Cat Girls written by seb :)

    Well Seb may write one of those anyway, but requests for Articles have to be made through Patreon now that we have an account :p

    Congrats on the post count though!

    I will have a look. I bought something called UX.i for the forum that allows me to change pretty much every single aspect. I'll be having a fiddle now that the core seems to be working without any trouble.

    Think its more down to the gritty stuff like changing Andy's link in this thread to the new URL for The Rules as some of the links have changed

    and general polishing up
