    Arrow Major Blab upgrade very soon - please check here for more info on what you can expect


    If all stays on track Blab will undergo
    the **major** upgrade later this week.




    Blab will be offline for the upgrade, quite likely for a full day.

    Probably one day Thursday-Sunday, as soon as all is prepared.


    Will keep you updated !!!



    I wanted to let members know now, even though there is always a possibility that something comes up to delay it.
    Hopefully I can make it as streamlined and uncomplicated as possible ... but it is in fact a rather complicated upgrade.




    More will be posted on what you can expect post upgrade!

    This will be the biggest change to Blab's appearance in 6 years ...
    but Blab is still Blab, and it is still the members and the forums
    that make Blab what it is!!!

    Can't wait to see what the new Blab looks like. And the best part is, I won't have much internet access anyway for those three days!!

    I hope it's on like... a Friday or something, or a Saturday. A day where I can go out and do stuff.

    Blab has been through several upgrades successfully. The first one was also a major upgrade, although the appearance was not as dramatic. Step 1 of any upgrade is to make a complete backup copy of the site ... so if worst came to worst, I'd simply turn on the pre-upgrade version and we'd just pick up where we left off.

    Are we still going to have the little option at the very bottom left to switch back to this lay out?

    Sadly so is the site I am a mod on, the upgrade was fine but then the server fried and lost info, took a week to get back up. I wish you best of luck and hope it all goes well, it is no fun when your favorite place to hang is not there for you.

    Oh I shall bring champagne to celebrate.

    That option is for color selections- it won't back out the upgrade, although that may not be what you meant. Blab will still be a Basic Blab Blue, but it won't be exactly this blue. The forum will still be the current essential Blab, just stepped up a bit on round corners and such.

    In time Blab should have alternate color schemes available for selection. But blue will always be available.

    Please though, don't leave us on dial up behind. I always fear it'll get harder to use for us with slow connections as that seems to be the way the rest of the internet is going.
