Thanks. Yeah that helps. It's far more 'busy' though. The list used to be neat and tidy but now only the top 2 posts fit on my phone screen. 

No doubt get used to it

I take it that things still have no quite matched up as I cannot get the search function to find anything.

Yeah, it's still rebuilding shit in the background. Unfortunately nothing I can do to speed up the process. At this rate it could be several days before it's done. Bleagh.

They throttle the rebuild processes so they don't take CPU priority over active boards.

Definitely going to take a bit to get used to.

Any chance of a dark mode?

I've installed a default dark theme. Scroll to the bottom and select "Theme" to switch to a different one. Depending on what font colors people have used when posting it may or may not look decent.

It's out of the box, so I've done no customization to it, but that should get you going for now...

Old version was past End of Life and was no longer going to be updated/patched from a security perspective.

Anyone else noticing the site loads slower now, though?

The background tasks are all now done running, so it should now be loading ok. I'm not seeing any major slowdown at my end.

OK, that must have been it. Everything's smooth, now.

Re: changing post counts

Some of you have noticed that your post counts have gone down since the switch. I'm not 100% sure why that occurred, but my assumption is that as part of the changeover and the 2 days of background processes, everything got recounted from the ground up.

Previously, what I believe happened is when a thread or post got deleted, the system didn't go back and lower the post counts of the people who posted in that deleted thread, so over the course of time, a portion of your post count was made up of posts/threads that no longer existed. I know at one point several years ago, I had to go back and delete a bunch of ancient threads that hadn't been responded to in many years, simply because the board was running up against its SQL database capacity. Post counts likely were not updated after that major pruning. Now they have.

So y'all just need to post more again. :lol:

    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
