    Cool New ownership

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I have taken over the site from Craig and Emily!

    The first thing in order is a server move. I believe I have finished moving everything, we now just have to wait until DNS propagates and its accessible for everyone. If anybody is having any issues, please post here or send me a private message, so I can get them resolved.

    I'm also going to get rid of all the annoying ads.

    I have a lot of plans for this site, feeling excited!

    Welcome and best wishes with the forum. The advertising won't be missed by me. You could do an advertising separate section under "Vendors" if they helped you out. That would help with someone looking for gear availability.

    Thanks everyone! I hope to roll out some new stuff in the next couple of weeks.

    I'm a website programmer by trade, so hopefully I can finally iron out all the bugs.

    One niggle, when posting from Firefox, a dialogue box comes up asking if it's ok to navigate from the current page. Not a big issue.

    Never mind, it seems to be gone now.

    It's good to have a 4/3 user and active member as admin/owner.
    I hope it goes well for you.

    This is good news. I felt that this site have been lost at sea for some time now.

    Hopefully we can enjy both 4/3 and µ-4/3 stuff here.

    As I offered to craig and emily when they took the site over...I'm a graphic designer by trade, so if you need any help in that department, feel free to drop me a PM if you need a little help with design. I think I still have all the vector artwork (in Illustrator and photoshop) for the header graphics.

    I am trying to find ways to upgrade the forum software to the latest version. I hope that will also fix any of the bugs associated with IE11, as well as issues with the latest version of PHP this server uses.

    What's that? I didn't have any problem composing this reply with IE11.0.9600.17107 and Windows 8.1 on my laptop.

    Yeah, that one was an easy fix!

    I also fixed the error message that was showing up on top of page when entering settings.

    Fixed issues with avatar / attachment thumbnail creation.

    Went through forum plugins to remove old unused bloat.

    Cleaned up the forums database.

    Installed a test site where I tried to upgrade the forum to the latest version. Also removed vBSEO as the creator of that plugin has gone bankrupt and it is a security threat. Rewrote .htaccess rules so all the old links forward to the new ones. These changes will be rolled out tomorrow.

    Fixed a bug in newreply.php that vBulletin themselves have simply left in.


    I believe upgrading the forum will get rid of the "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" message issue. I am not able to replicate this issue on the test board. We'll see tomorrow!

    I currently have no problems on this site with I.E. 11 on Windows 7. Currently running 11.0.7 which I think is the latest update. The computer is set to run Windows Updates automatically, so it keeps the IE version up to date. Is it possible that there is some other interference on your machine?
