Scheduled forum upgrade 11/5/2020

Post by theOptom »

Scheduled forum upgrade to latest software is planned to take place in the early hours of Monday 11th May 2020. Should be minimal downtime, perhaps few hrs.

If after the upgrade you experience any problems please post them here or email: admin (at) theptom (dot) com

Thanks.

(if no issues after a while this thread will likely be deleted)

The upgrade will go on in the background while the forum can still work. It will complete later.

I have noted that every now and then there is an unusually large number of visitors to the site which likely means a hack/spam attempt. I imagine this happens to many forums on a regular basis.

As a result if the login problem happens again let us know by email Image (please ensure this email is added to your contacts so it does not go to spam/junk folder). Or you can contact us via our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheOptom/
