Forum Maintenance and "Some Changes" Discussion Thread

Hi all, Today (Thursday 10 March 2016) we will be performing some needed maintenance on DVDTalk software. This upgrade will include performance improvements as well as a better mobile browsing skin. It will also include the addition of some banner ads, even when users are logged in. We have endeavored to hold off on these banners for as long as we could, and to place them where they would be as unobtrusive as possible while still having their needed advertising effect. We thank you for your patience during this transition.

If you note any bugs following the upgrade, please report them as usual in the feedback forum:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/forum-feedback-support-4/

The beginning of the end or a whole new beginning...

Discuss

Is there going to be downtime? I'll assume not since it wasn't mentioned.

I could use some downtime.

I have to admit, the thread title is ominous. I thought my parents were getting divorced again.

Forum pages do seem to be loading faster at the moment than they have in years.

I don't want this place turning into a social media dumping ground, but having the option to easily post a tweet instead of taking a screengrab, uploading to photobucket, grabbing link & posting here is a colossal waste of time.

Also being able to embed videos from, oh I don't know, ANY site other than YouTube would be mighty useful as well.

Re: Forum Maintenance and "Some Changes" Discussion Thread

And you effectively broke 1000s of existing posts with the change to (ban) embed videos. I understand security issues, but one would think the OWNER of VB should be able to be on a more updated version than Version 3.7.2 (which was released in 2008)

This whole thing is odd. We're all old now, so they need to find a way to milk money out of this without pissing off the elderly.

I thought this thread was in Feedback, but when I didn't see it there I thought it had been deleted. Glad it's still around.

Dang, is that why MLB embed kept failing the other day? Now it all makes sense.

There are probably many who would pony up the ten bucks to get him his own sub-forum.
