It has taken approximately 36 hours of downtime, however, it has to be said the actual transfer of data itself only took around 6 hours, but we were taking extra care along the way, including multiple dumps of the database and extensive checks to ensure all data had transfered correctly.
On top of this, we have had an extensive re-organisation and changes made across multiple aspects of the site, which meant a lot of re-checking and permissions changes.
Whilst the final configuration is still probably a few days off, and we have many things left to implement, at this point we were happy enough to re-open the forums to our members and the public whilst the final changes were applied.
I welcome you all to have a look around, register if you so desire and introduce yourself to the paintball community, we have people who have only played once with friends, to proffessional world class players and managers as part of the site.
Our thanks goes to Kier, Mike and Ashley for producing such a high quality piece of software which is a pleasure to manage and interact with. Some bottles of you know what will be on their way courtesy of the site shortly
Thanks to Brogan for being an information powerhouse, getting the important information to those who needed it.
Thanks to Robbo, for help in creating the many custom scripts and importers we needed to transfer many parts of the site over.
Thanks to Graeme from XenFocus for help with the skin, especially the site wide right hand advertisers column.
And thankyou to every member of XenForo still supporting the best software there is
