    Starting this Thursday morning, SS.org will be unreachable most of the day while we upgrade the forum software. The upgrade should be completed within 24 hours, but keep checking back frequently.

    The new software will have the Likes system and other enhanced features!

    Just a few suggestions:

    - Your password will work on the upgraded SS.org site, but the first time you'll have to enter it in. Make sure you know your password. You may get logged in automatically right now and thus don't know your password. If you have trouble logging in, contact us using the contact us link at the bottom of this page.

    - You may want to save your avatars and re-upload them after we upgrade due to image resolution being downscaled.

    - Internet providers will often use your browser history to load the site. When sites are upgraded this can cause a delay in users being able to reach the new site. We suggest cleaning your cache and browsing history. That way when the upgraded SS.org site is up and running, your ISP will look for it instead of trying to load the old version.

    Questions or comments are welcome here.

    Thanks, chief! That's good news to hear.

    What is the new resolution going to be? Will animated gif's still work, if they are small enough?

    Is there any way to disable avatars from being displayed on each forum pages, for each thread?
    I find it terribly distracting and it ends up showing a lot less than it previously did... I searched all over the options to disable that feature but to no avail :(

    It's looking great, I know there will still be things to fix but in each forum I miss the split between new threads and old sticky'd threads or rule threads at the top. Returning that or having some way to differentiate between the two would be a help!

    Liking everyone's comment on this thread. BECAUSE I CAN.

    Also, someone call Asher back to the forum. He's been given purpose in life once again!

    So, this is the same software/platform that all the other forums (like The Gear Page) use? Looks and feels exactly like it.
