I spent the better part of the evening getting the forum upgraded. There are a few nice new bells and whistles (if I got them working right). There are also various improvements and we are up to date again.
On that note, one of the first things you probably noticed is the shout box is missing. It does not appear to function on the latest forum software. I will attempt to play around with it to see if I can get it back, but at this time, it looks like it might be gone. On that note, there is a new "messaging" system, thought I still thing it requires some tweaks, but overall you shouldnt notice any issues.
Any action (PMs, posts, badges requests, etc) done between 5pm EST and 2am EST were lost. However, I don't think there was a high probability much action took place.
If you notice anything broken, or links no longer working, etc. Please post them here.
