We are planning to upgrade the forum sometime next week. The site may be down for up to 4-5 hours. I'll try my best to upgrade during the night hours US. Warren is working hard on converting some of the custom hacks, so make sure you thank him. One unfortunate consequence of the update is the incompatibility of some of our 3rd party hacks. There are new versions of the quiz, journal and link db hacks, however no update scripts. So what this means is we start from scatch on those. Please save all your journal entries to your computer and then re-enter them in the new system. I know it's a pain and if there were an easy solution I'd take it, but there simply isn't. The new hack versions seem to be of higher quality and this shouldn't happen again. On a more positive note I'd also like to take this time to announce the development of a new custom skin. We're planning on a skin that will make PF more distinct with the same readability, accessibility and usability of the current skin. It should also be noted that the skin will be flexible in that each category will give off a unique feel depending on that category. For example, the biology and comsology forums will have the same basic skin elements, but some things will be different that will give you a unique feel appropriate to that topic. The skin will hopefully be ready within two months.
