Forum upgrade - 3.1.6 to 3.2

Hi all.

Either sometime tonight or tomorrow morning I'll be upgrading the forum from phpBB 3.1.6 to 3.2

The site will be down for this time. It's also likely that a few features will be unavailable when it comes back online. It's better to get this done now before the season starts.

This update is important as it should help address some of the performance issues that we've been having during game days.

Thanks for understanding while the site is offline.

Okay the forum is back.

You'll notice that it looks a little different (eg. avatars on the right).
This is because I've brought the site back online before updating a few of the extensions that we are familiar with.

Please stand by while I load these throughout the day. I should be able to complete the process throughout the day and tonight.

PS. the date was alright. Nothing amazing. I didn't have high expectations going into it.

Thanks Kul,

It's amazing how such a small change (Avatars on the right) changes how well the site flows.

Thrown me right off.

When quoting someone, the name of who you have quoted doesn't show up. Is that due to the upgrade?
