Good Luck to all and thanks

Yeap, there it was. Very many thanks.

A. OK - We have patched the Beta to build 2.6.1431 (current)

B. I have confirmed what I suspected, you find a lot more bugs, more quickly with live data -- it is also WAY more fun.

C. There's still much to be doen and tested and we need more help, PM me or Dandello for more info

D. This is also a great way to 'road-test' the new and  faster, way more features than you can get a grip on YaBB 2.6

E. You will get to try new functions and features as Moderators, GM's or Admins -- a great way to see how things work, and it should get you ready to plan your conversion.

And that's all for now folks

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Thanks for noticing that.

I think its a function of our 'shoehorning' of the data, rather than running a conversion. The data used was already '2.6/Next/3.0' so conversion was not possible,

Did you post anything over there or do any testing?

thanks
Wink

Edited:
Time format is correct on Beta server

Some folks have very kindly already volunteered - they should have a PM  or e-mail from me about the topic.

If you want to help out and have not received notification, just PM me

Thanks to everyone
