    Some of the vB software has become fizzled after a few add-ons and then upgrades. I've noticed some things starting to hang and timing out. I'm going to perform a fresh install of the entire site. This may mean we are down for a bit and then I'll be adding back some of the features you know and love... plus a few more.

    Trust me, It will be worth it.
    Need to get rid of this 4" post text screen for one...

    Got me to wondering. Is everything here backed up somewhere? We have so much great info accumulated that I would hate to see it disappear.

    Yes. We do nightly backups of the data. THat data is stored on a seperate server. If we lost everything here, I'd just reload the forum infrastructure and then point it back to the database for the info. I also download the database every so often so that I have the data as well. If we lost the database, we'd only lose 3 days at the most of info.
