Default *We are CHANGING!!!!*

Finally after 6 weeks of fixing and testing the current forum database we are almost ready to switch across to a completely new forum operating platform.

It will be a Vbulletin board (not a phpbb board like this one). The new forum has 100's of extra features and is far more robust.

In preperation for this change over we suggest that you SAVE any private messages you want to keep. They 'should' transfer across to the new board, and in test it worked fine BUT just in case it would be a good idea to copy anything you don't want to risk losing.

We are looking at locking this board on Monday morning (8am)so you will NOT be able to post anything, our Tech guys will then copy the current forum database across to a new server and the new Vbulletin board. This will take at least 24 hours.

Once we have transferred across we will have a temporary domain name while we wait for the Captivebred name to switch over. You will still be able to access the site by clicking on the normal www.captivebred.co.uk/forum and there will be a link to the new site.

We may have a few teething problems once we have switched but the pain will be worth it :wink: If once we have switched over you can't access your account, request a new password and if that doesn't work email us and we will sort out any problems.

We should not lose any posts, threads, pictures etc, so the new site will still have all the information on it. The only thing that does seem to disappear is peoples AVATARS, if you want to keep yours save it to your pc and then upload again once we are on the new site.

I will confirm the switch over date asap.

and the new forum sounds good, another forum I'm a member of just got updated & its completely different & confusing, so providing it isn't that confusing, should be fine for me, i, same with Lynne, am not particularly technically minded lol

I wouldn't worry about the changes. It's essentially the same thing. :)
Nice to hear that *we're getting a makeover. :)

* Am I allowed to say we as I am essentially a n00b?

Right can you all knock it on the head now please! This thread will be pages of utter drivel in no time if not and pretty much every post on here is totally off topic..Go to the thread in off topic that was started for this kind of stuff and please keep it off this thread.
If you must carry it on feel free to use the pm feature also. I am locking this thread for now and just to add if anyone has any questions regarding the changeover please pm myself or Scott or any of the mods and we will get back to you.. 8)
