For security reasons I had to move the Forum to a new server. Sad
I would have done it earlier but I couldn't get hold of the necessary files, they needed to be disabled apparently. Undecided
If anyone notices anything different, or something that doesn't work properly, please post here. Smiley

Thrilled to see the forum back with the lost posts recovered!  Great to see some of the regular contributors posting as well.

Hopi bon to be back, but strangely enough, what I missed most was MNB's idyllic descriptions of life at the edge of the bush...
Should I start to think about my retirement ?

Actually I didn't even know you could do this! So, I've switched mine on too! Smiley
I had a peek in your profile and I think it was because you hadn't specified where you lived on the map - I stuck a point somewhere in the middle of a Fjord and that seems to have done the trick ... ! Smiley
Incidentally, does anyone have any problems with the 'Live Preview' function when they are writing an email? Questioning

Dont know if this is a problem with the forum or just me  Undecided, but:

I have tried to make my norwegian flag become visible, without success.... Am I the only one?
I have specified the location specific info and selected "Flag" in the options meny, but still nothing happens....
Still I can see that a few do have "their flags" right now. What is the secret?

Clearly not the most important problem in the world, but still....

Thanks for getting the forum up and running again  Smiley

I agree it's a bit hard to read, it could be the background colour and the text colour that are too similar. Actually, the whole new design will take some getting used to - but it's great that the forum is back, so I don't really want to complain.  Cheesy

So a big thanks to the admin and gang who must've put a lot of effort into getting it going again!  Smiley

Hello everyone, good to be back.   Smiley
Great job Tony and Chesspub for the work! But is it just me or is the text very small in size?! hard to read imho.

I also noticed quite alot more free time in my life while the forum was gone!

p.s. the TopNotch smiley looks like this now:    Grin (less sniggering, more laughing) Where's the man?

A big hello to all fellow Forum devotees.  I have missed you all.  In particular, my mornings at work have been much more productive while I have not been spending the first 30 minutes looking around here ...  Wink

A big thank you to Tony and the team for getting us back up and running.

Let's hope we can repay the effort by continuing to make this the best chess site around.

Play nicely now y'all ...

Thanks GM Kosten and all for bringing back what was once one of the best chess websites around.  I hope ChessPub can recuperate from its hibernation.

As you can see the Forum is finally back! Smiley
We had enormous problems getting the new software to work on our servers, and then had difficulties converting all the old messages to the new format - many thanks to s_m_b at YaBB for all his help here!
The final problem was that we recovered all the 'lost' messages to an orphans folder and I have spent the last week moving these (2000+ threads!) to their original boards. I have almost certainly made some mistakes (or alternatively, maybe they are now in more appropriate places!) and so if you see any glaring examples of misclassification please email the board moderator or me with the details! Embarrassed
