(Minor) forum upgrade coming soon - help test

Post by Eviltechie » Wed Jul 25, 2012 3:56 am

We're going to update our version of phpBB to the latest version, something that hasn't been done in quite a while. Instead of just pushing out the upgrade and hoping that nothing breaks, we're going to test out the new version and give you all a chance to look for bugs.

Yesterday evening, I cloned the forums database and the forums themselves, then I ran the upgrade on the copy. It currently resides at http://forums.joe.to/beta/. Here's where you come in. We need you to visit the "beta" forums and test everything you can think of. If you find anything that's different between the "beta" copy and the current copy, report it in this thread so I can take a look at it. For those of you with special access (server admins, news posters, etc) please don't forget to look at those areas.

For those of you who want a second account to play with, you can login with the username "username_of_coolness" and the password "password".

Naturally, when testing is complete everything in the "beta" copy will be deleted, so don't get to cozy.

When reporting bugs, include the following info as it applies.
  • The theme you are using.
  • What page you were on before you got the error.
  • The url of the page that gives you the error.
  • What you were doing.
  • What you thought was going to happen.

Why are the names of the people who aren't donors or admins in black instead of red D:

Edit: I meant, like, usually normal names are red, why are they black now?

he's a regular server admin, not a forum admin. reg server admins don't get color choices

also mostly sure that when you belong to multiple groups, you can choose which group is default which determines what your name color is

When I saw the last person who posted as seriouslycrafty(as in seriously a minecrafter) and then seeing his avatar as the "you don't say guy", I thought it was a troll account.


I was ready for lulz. :sadasfuck:

'his' was perfectly acceptable given the situation. No need to get retarded about it.

Maybe it was perfectly acceptable. I'm not getting retarded.

Honestly, Avvatar, do you have anything better to do in your free time than to harass little 12-yr-old girls?

This is the internet, calling someone a guy has a 85% chance of being true.

You don't have pink bunnies or a picture of yourself as your avatar so I know you're a girl and deserve special treatment.

Nice stealth edit.

And no. Nothing is more important than making sure stupid people understand how stupid they are. Stop being willfully ignorant. Make an effort to improve or shut your fucking mouth.
