    Anyways, if you're on the front page and want to jump to last click the little blue double arrow on the right side of the thread.
    It's getting better though. I was able to get in via the front page today, which was not the case before.
    It's the offseason, so we can deal lol.
    Good job you guys.

    It’s starting to come together and looks pretty good guys! Nice work.

    A little irritating moving around & relearning everything but we’ll get there. Hopefully we won’t lose the older posters who are having a difficult time finding their way to the website since the original URL isn’t accessible.

    I also have yet to find how I can open a thread on the last page so I don't have to manually input it from the first page. We'll get there though, I'm glad our own people bought it.

    there is a little blue double arrow looking thing that is supposed to take you to the last post. ive found it works on some threads and not on others. When the forum or front page dont load for me it typically says server error.

    I believe clashmore mentioned that the vBulletin version that was transferred had not had any support since 2010. When the files were transferred to the new server, we encountered a series of out of date/unsupported issues that forced us into an upgrade which then forced us into the full upgrade. We attempted to keep everyone abreast via Facebook and Twitter and posted that above (I think). We were not able to send out notifications of the prolonged outage from here.

    We had planned on giving everyone a heads-up, but once the former owners were ready to initiate the transfer, we were kind of thrown into the deep end without much lead time.

    Now we're in a place where the site is usable, but there may be intermittent interruptions (like yesterday) as we figure everything out and get this place set up in a way that feels more familiar.

    We have experienced some redirect issues with trying to get our front page set up like it was on the old version, which seems to have resulted in the home address 'irishenvy.com' not being responsive. 'irishevny.com/forums' and 'irishenvy.com/forums/frontpage' are working, but we're trying to smooth everything out.

    Like Clash said, hopefully once the server stabilizes a bit we can upgrade to the newest version of vBulletin. I've been chomping at the bit for that day.
    I had an employee that was in early on it. He spent a ton of dollars on cheap components building PCs and even spent a decent amount on solar to power it all. He's no better off now lol... Another guy that just played the trade on it all, did pretty good.

    There was some discussion here that an upgrade was probably coming. There's still some little things to work out like the look and banners, but this was a welcome upgrade. There was a very real chance that the old server hosting the board could have gone down at any point or become unavailable, and then it might have been impossible to update or migrate the server due to lost data or incompatible versions. That's part of the reason it took a few days for Clashmore to work out the kinks with the vBulletin team, they had to do multiple updates just to make the site usable on the new server. It had been many years since anyone bothered to touch the software. In any case, big thanks to the new owners for working on this and putting us in a good place for the future! Updated features and quality of life upgrades can help bring in some new posters.

    Anyway, happy that there is progress, but... One of the primary complaints from folks in the past was that there was no warning of migrations/changes. Sorry if I missed a notification/post, but seems like y'all migrated servers without giving anyone a heads up. Glad it's the off season.

    Hmmm, no notifications in my browser. Looks like the functionality is there at least, might just need tweaked. In there Profile Settings there's a section under Notifications to receive a message in your Message Center when someone @ you, I've got that turned on.

    Idk about y'all, but it's been 48 hours since I've been able to be on the site. I was able to look at one or two threads yesterday for about 10 minutes, but that was it. I'm sure hoping that these 2+ day outages will be a thing of the past.

    I've done that dance before. There's a reason you stay fairly current. I'm sure Sherm Sticky can attest to that as well.

    Looks like they moved the site (not upgraded), but IDK.

    Tried to pickup IrishEnvy shares on the "takeover" news. Robinhood won't let me buy?

    Huge short positions being taken right now. Screw the hedge funds (rumored to be USC Sucks Capital and Michigan Sucks LLC).

    It's a buy and hold Lads and Lassies!

    Cheers and Go Irish!!

    Thank you and Congrats for stepping up, to the whole group. I always pop on here to read even if I don't post as much anymore. IE is one of the best places I've ever found for honest analysis and genuine conversation on the gamut of topics. I have gone from angry twenty-something to middle aged reading this board, and I've learned that most of you old bastards actually know what you're talking about. You're good men, every one of you. Long may this refuge continue.
