  • Good news about the future of the forum

    I received this from Dean today and he's asked me to pass it on to you all:

    Things are finally moving forward, the owner has contracted with a new tech team that are very experienced and so very very soon we should have a new TSF built on a server that can handle what we do, managed by people who know vBulletin like the back of their hand!

    As of today, the new company is still waiting for the "back up" from the previous tech team but are still waiting. I envisage (and hope) this will be a matter of weeks not months, but please don't hold me to that
    .

    Sounds promising. So hopefully we should have a fully working site sometime soon, can't wait.

    Fingers crossed. Hope the Forum can get back to the way it was years ago. During the Gibraltar Tourney there was less than 10 members logged on when I did a check.

      Great news!
      Can't wait for this pandemic to end so we all can start playing again.

        Hope so , Pity people like Odri left because he had brilliant contributions , as did many others who departed. Sounds like politicians election promises , we heard this before. Be great if it happens this time though

          Odrl still pops back from time to time, I'm sure he'll start posting again once the site's sorted out and membership (hopefully) picks up.
          Keep the faith, after all, the forum's like an old friend, you wouldn't desert an old friend when they're poorly and need you most, would you.
          I know we've heard things like this before, but I don't think this is another false dawn. Fingers X

            So the Forum is broken, I thought it had something to do with the hacks, Maybe a new Tech team New ideas, lets hope so, Don't worry Pat I've got your back, BTW where is Dean he hasn't posted for a while and I can only guess Neil is busy ATM.

              Good news and let hope it’s followed through, thanks for sharing PatBlock.
              I reckon once people get back playing again I think the interest will return. Not sure about you guys but not being able to play is starting to get to me and one way I have of dealing with it is to take more of a step back from anything to do with snooker and to concentrate on other pastimes

                Thanks John. Dean is having login issues unfortunately, another effect of the forum's illness I'm afraid. I think he's getting serious withdrawal symptoms. It must be like purgatory, he can read posts but can't reply to them. Hi Dean.

                    I reckon he's sabotaged the place, so he can have a couple of weeks off. Can't say I blame him.

                      Far enough , he has been taking a bit of flak recently.

                        I'm both kinda sceptical and hopeful...

                            Hopefully everyting will be in place in time for the world championships and the new tech team will maybe have a better defence against the hackers.
                            To be honest I feel even though Milton Keynes came to the rescue, every tournament felt and looked the same, I didn't give Gibralter any time whatsoever, no idea who won it. I never thought I'd miss playing that much, I have a few things to work through to maybe improve my game and just can't put them into practise, and there's always the chance that my club will fold under the financial burden.
                            Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
                            but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair
