Post subject:  Forum Upgrade/Possible Issues

I force upgraded to fix a couple problems.

Due to the nature of this upgrade, there are many things that can go wrong. I have to fix many of these things by hand.

First, is SQL errors. The database structure changed. I've fixed the biggest ones already, but a few of these... are weird.
If you get these, report to me what the process was to get to that error is.

The second big one is that the dice roller does not work. I've been using holdover code from 2 years ago to make that work. Simply enough, that has been causing problems steadily with each concurrent upgrade. Finally, I had to break it out. I will be remaking it.

The search function won't work correctly. I've emptied the search database right now. I will restore this later.

However, this upgrade does not come without other benefits.
The registration process was in terrible shape before this upgrade, making it more difficult for humans and easier for bots to sign up. That needed to be fixed.

Mods are also easier for me to control now. This is significant, as, it will help me control the forums more easily.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
