    Jest a note for those who also visit our sister site Rebelscum - their forums are currently down. Philip and Grahame are aware of the issue and are working on it.

    Opening this and upping it - it looks like Rebelscum is having problems again. I've emailed Grahame and Philip.

    Looks like we need this again - the RS forums have been down since (at least) this morning UK time. They've been having issues the last few days with adware and the problem is being looked into.

    Looks like their forums are back up but since the situation might still exist further outages are possible.

    Rebelscum forums will be taking a scheduled outage of at least a few hours at some point today. Grahame (admin) is beginning the process of preparing for their conversion from VBulletin to Xenforo. He will be putting a note on the main Rebelscum page when the process starts so you can keep an eye out there for updates.

    Haha - they aren't at the conversion step yet. This is prep work.

    Their migration process will be a hell of a lot more streamlined than ours, seeing as thousands of boards have moved from vBulletin to Xenforo in the past 5 years and there are import scripts written for every software version. We're one of probably only 2 or 3 boards to migrate from IGN/Snowboards, so the guys who did ours had to write the scripts themselves.

    Shame they didn't count above 10,000.
    jcgoble3 and Bardan_Jusik like this.

    For our Rebelscum friends:

    PLANNED DOWNTIME TODAY

    We are anticipating the site will be offline late Friday afternoon and expected to return in the evening while we do a substantial platform upgrade. The Rebelscum store will go offline at noon and return online in the evening. Times are CST.

    Story.
