So, this is the new version of the forum, still running XenForo but now on version 2 with a new MySQL back-end.

Due to the change in MySQL, it wasn't possible to easily copy across the old forum, so after some discussion, the writers and I decided a new start was best. Therefore the old forum will be deactivated at midnight (though not deleted in case anyone has vital info we need to grab in future).

Now that we have the latest system, we'll be able to access all the latest versions and safeguards to stop the spate of Chinese bots that like to nest around here. Hopefully this will lead to a much better user experience for everyone here.

We're aware that this may mark a jumping-off point for some, but it will also make it easier for new visitors to interact with the site too, so on balance we think it's best all round to move forward together, and we hope as many of you as possible will join us :)

Trying to count which version of the UKA forum this is now... Fifth? Sixth maybe? Crikey.

Anyway as this one is full of shiny toys and no longer relies on a server behind someone's TV, here is to a bright renewal of the forum!

lol, yes that was supposed to be temporary, but we couldn't get the blasted database to copy from that version of MySQL. Still, now we have the latest of everything it shouldn't be an issue. Back on Etharius' over-specced monster now!

  • You need to lock The Rules thread, or the whole sub-forum section
  • Dont know if we need a Music forum, or change it to "Music & TV", something to discuss with the mods

Rules thread is locked, oversight on my part - could have had all sorts of iffy rules added :)

Music I'll have a think about - it may be too niche as you suggest. Lots of good music out there to recommend though :p
