    They have other things to worry about, I'm thinking... at least if the website is up that means the server isn't underwater.

    Yeah, that was my point.


    That other thread BT linked is the rant thread that preceded the TK Official Update Thread.

    Personally, I would have done the SQL backup first. The files, while part of AO, are important. However if the server or database goes down, the SQL backup would preserve the post history and content. The files wouldn't.

    Agreed. I feel like these Delaware guys don't really know what they're doing.

    Well maybe now by this time they are doing that (two days later).

    Keep in mind, those files are stuff like Mod directories, image hosting, etc. The REAL AO is the SQL database. That, I'm curious about myself.

    The real trick will be the style/design switch.

    Lots of things have changed from VBulletin 3 to VBulletin 4.


    One thing I AM looking forward to though is ForumRunner being active. (If he turns it on, which he 100% should!)

    I have never figured out why you need an "app" to view a forum.
    Maybe if you are still on 2G or 3G.
    I'd rather look at the full webpage than a mobile "half there" page.
    But LTE is fairly fast.
