Yup, it only took, like 10 years. This was done for a bunch of reasons, one primary reason being better spam prevention. Also a more modern platform which will receive updates, speed, etc.

Please let me know if you notice any weirdness. Other than ... uh, the usual weirdness that goes on here. :slap:

The only odd thing I've noticed (so far) is that the icon indicating 'unread posts' in the 'find old games' section is always showing in the board index, even when I've read everything in the section. (This is only when I'm logged in not when I'm logged out of the site; maybe it's something cached on my side?)

edit: well, the 'mark forums read' button worked, so now the alert is gone.

A day or so ago I was updating the forum's custom spam-prevention code :spam: and I made a typo, which ended up breaking the reply function. (Quick reply still worked.) Anywho, the issue is fixed. We still will get spam but I appreciate all those who remove it or report it!
