AmiBay down for a software upgrade on 9/10th April

I just wanted to make you all aware that the AmiBay site will be down for maintenance and an upgrade to VBulletin 4 on 9th and 10th April.

Don't worry or panic, we'll be back as soon as possible!

Hey, why is this site not updating? Still stuck on clunky VB 3.8.8 and a BETA at that

Good luck Merlin and the rest of the guys, you're going to have plenty to do after the upgrade from 3.x I know, I've been there and done it

Looking forward to seeing what awesome changes you'll make with the new software

The site is back up, although Harrison is still finishing some tasks off and the forums have not been switched back on yet. This should happen later today.

@ DH

There will probably be a lot more tinkering required before we're happy with it.

Woohoo! I can pay from some stuff I've ordered now, hope the PM's are still there.

Did you retain all the usernames/passwords?

Itching to have a gander now, great work and glad nothing serious went wrong with the upgrade, +1

All previous user settings should have been retained, so no new passwords are needed. PMs are still there and the database is intact; it's also backed up, just in case.

Anyone wanting to pay for stuff should be able to do so later today.

I'm sure there will be, when we moved over to vB4 there was a lot of code broken, so it was really a case of, re-coding everything again, sometimes in a different place too to get the same effect.

Anyway, be great to see it back up, and to see what you have implemented too, maybe pop over to our forums here http://awesome.commodore.me/forum/ and have a look there, maybe something of interest I/we could help you with, although I would imagine you'll not have the need.

EDIT: Obviously from an Admins point of view, there's a hell of a lot more to see than just a regular user, or unregistered user, can see.

I just logged in and that function is working now. (Yes, my old password still works!)

So, in a few more hours more functions should be working!
