    FWIW, the new server is slowly acclimating itself.(bugs being worked out)

    Experienced some bizarre anomalies yesterday, but today everything seems A-OK. :cool:

    These things are to be expected during the migration process.

    Hang on Sky, this is only the software change, the new server is Sat

    and you are absolutely correct that the propagation is going to take a bit on that one with 100G of data to transfer

    Merry Christmas all!

    I have stuck these theads we have going, and will leave them that way until we all make it thru the other side.

    Will try to get at all the issues as we go, so we can make this place how we want it to be.
    That is the nice thing about this software, gives us a great deal to work with, just have to figure out where it is and how to set it.

    Thanks for all the input, as it certainly helps ferret out tweaks we need to make

    Yep, you are in the defaut skin,

    Haven't installed the header package to that as of yet.

    Xenforo is the developer of this site.

    You can choose a different skin down in the lower left corner, on bottom task bar

    Currently we have:

    server crashed
    did this site get a makeover??
    having trouble logging in?
    important news announcement, sticky

    All of those threads are regarding the same topic, the new design to GIM2. Might be easier for Scorpio if all of those were combined into 1 or maybe 2 threads, that way any issues that are raised are located in just 1 or 2 threads instead of spread across 4 different threads?

    Just... wow. This is DEEP. I never knew there could be so many bells and whistles...

    Coupla notes (Please Gawd this is the right venue!!)

    dagger small.jpg

    The above pic is taken from my profile. That is the size it displays there. The correct size.

    Then, looking at every post YOU make, Scorp -- I see "busted photo" box on the bottom line:

    That is my signature Unca that still has to be fixed,
    Kinda frosted about that, had it for 14 yrs, and it bombed due to sizing

    Grrrr, but the stuff for you guys is more important than my sig at this time.........I'll get that fixed

    Gotcha, bro...

    Forgot to mention: When I arrive at this site, I get an "ERROR NOT FOUND" with the pretty new goldy logo showing. So then I IGNORE the error message and click on the "Forums" tab.

    I mention this both as a problem, and as a pragmatic temp workaround if anyone (everyone?) else sees this glitch...

    Bring the site up with this,

    http://www.goldismoney2.com/

    that issue will not plague you again

    Haystck and I were talking about how the world is changing,

    it isn't 'private msgs' and longer, it is 'Conversations'
    it isn't thanks any longer, it is 'likes'
    it isn't accessing with pc's any longer, it is gadgets

    even it isn't forums anymore, it is blogs or facebook/twitter/etc anymore

    one thing we can rest assured on, is things are changing even more rapidly nowadays,

    Thanks! now a question. What are "Points"?
    BTW, I really like the inverted blue style. The dark background with white letters works great fro me. When you have nothing better to do, how about an "inverted brown" style? Thanks, and keep up the great work!

    it took hours to build the skins, 'cause they were built from scratch inside xenforo

    when I did them at vbull, I imported 3rd parties, and then they don't update with the base software.

    this way they will always be up to date

    so I will look into it, but it is going to be quite some time before that can be tackled as we aren't totally thru the black hole yet

    there are points, there are trophies, etc.

    all related to forum activity, post count, how many times you burp, all that jazz. Right now I haven't had time to go play there.
    A quick perusal had a diff setup than vb with the user titles to post count to all these other variables. So for now, I set it to post count to keep things rolling along.

    Ok guys,

    The vids are recovered,
    All that I could anyway with a special converting program

    I am going to call it good,
    Started out with almost 100,000 vids and now it is finding none that still need to be converted.

    It has done all it can at this time, and it was failing on some conversions due to whatever reason

    Regardless, time to move on to the next item

    The server swap
