Saru, you say soon...Now I'm guessing this means UM may be down for a day or two while these changes take place, correct? Also, will everything we've posted and commented on remain with the new system or will we have to 'start over'?

Change doesn't bother me even at the least. Sure I'd feel a bit awkward a few days, but I will get over with it, soon - as long as the change isn't being worse than what it was before.



Huh? You means there was a one before this one, as well? :huh:


I don't think so but this is the only on line discussion forum I belong to and that was by accident LOL  5 years I think LOL  I'm a glutton for punishment  lol

Saru I'm sure the changes will be very cool but please don't use pink  :no:

The downtime will be very short, a few hours tops.

We won't be starting over, everything that's here now will still be here. :tu:

The blue design is Saru's conspiracy to keep us here longer. Blue light keeps us more alert and less sleepy, meaning all those late nights you've spend here reading is part of his master plan. :P



Thanks for the update Saru! :D

It seems as though members here are having problems grasping what the new layout would look like, and how the forum would be, then. There is a risk that our old, existing members may not like the new look; not everyone is capable of getting used to changes, even if it is for the betterment. Therefore, I feel the new layout/look needs to be posted here (as a form of picture), so that members may see it, know how it would be, get mentally/emotionally prepared for the change and, furthermore, comment on it, constructively criticize the negative aspects, which then could be settled.

EDIT: 'Soon' does not show anything. Wold like to know the exact date, or at least an idea when this is going to happen.

More like a private forum thread than an instant messanger.

Unfortunately its not really practical to provide screenshots at this time, suffice to say there will be plenty of opportunity to report problems or suggest changes once the system is up and running. The new design is very similar to the existing one so that while it is fresher and more refined it is also familiar enough so that visitors will still immediately recognise it as the UM forums.

I can't give you a specific date, my best estimate is that it will be ready this coming week unless any problems crop up in which case it could be pushed back to the week after.

We will be returning to manually organised debates, the automatic debate system is being scrapped.
