What type of gamer are you?: Computer
I have finally managed to get the forum upgraded to the current version. There are a few things that are not working yet, but should be up and running within the next week. If you see any weird server errors, please let me know. I am aware of a couple minor permission issues already. Right now there are 3 styles installed, so feel free to choose the best one for you.

Again, it's sort of a work in process.

Things I am working on:
RSS Feeds
Chat
Calendar/Events
Links
Quotations
Gallery
Arcade

I like the new look! It'll still take some getting used to, I'm sure.

One thing I noticed right away is that you cannot jump right to the last unread thread. You need to go into the forum topic (such as Game Nights) instead of jumping to the most recently posted message. I'm hoping that's one of the 'not working yet' parts :)

Thanks for doing this!

Wooot! Way to go Lartarin!!!

Well the little arrow next to the persons name takes you to the most recent post but I see the thread titles are missing. We'll just have to wait and see how everything comes out in the wash. Lots of accoutrements to adjust but no posts were lost so that's awesome. This upgrade is actually several over the previous version so lots of new shinys.

So far 'View Active Topics' doesn't work.

Tapatalk is mostly working. I can see the forums, even get into PM's and get notifications on new posts even EXCELLENT!

I am getting an error when I try to post though, it says it;s a MySQL error ans that the "column 'screen' cannot be null if that means anything....

PM's seem to be working just fine. (Thanks Lartarin for the test!)

Hmm.. I basically just added a javascript to the page. I'll have to check out tapatalk a bit more to figure out what they are doing.

No worries! I appreciate what is working so far anyway!

It's nice to be able to get PM's and check for last minute game night changes, and have it notify me on my phone, rather than me having to remember to check the page.

Posting will be considered a luxury!

FYI, for the rest of you, there is a free Read Only version of tapatalk that will get you 90% of the stuff, just not PM's or the ability to post. The full version is three bucks, and is fairly full featured.

http://www.tapatalk.com/

They even have versions for oldfarts with blackberries, and those of you without a soul, who don't mind paying more money for having less control of your hardware...

Thanks Amazon! They give you a chance to use the app, via a computer for about 30 min. I was able to recreate the error you received and make a change to the database. I sent a test post and it looks like it is working now.

If you run into anything else, let me know!
