Transition To New Server Complete, Massive Facelift Coming Soon
« on: February 16, 2008, 09:38:12 pm »
At long last, we've finally finished moving this site to the new server.  I apologize for how long it took, and for the downtime, but it's all done now.

You may have noticed that the site has changed a bit now that we're here.  The next phase of this project is improving the look and functionality of this site, including:

-New website, since the old main site was horribly buggy, and full of security holes
-New theme for the forum (we've gotten rid of the old one, it was incompatible with any modifications we added)
-A few adjustments to the gallery
-Surprises!

So, thanks for bearing with us through all this, and we hope that the new and improved Furry Teens is worth the hassle :-)

-The Administrative Team (Kit Wolf, Eddy Otter, and Felix Softpaw)

I forgot to mention that anyone using an avatar that you uploaded to the server will have to re-upload it.  For reasons unknown to me, there are unresolvable issues with uploaded avatars and attachments when moving from a Linux server to a Windows server, and the only solution is to delete all uploaded avatars and attachments.

Anyone using an avatar selected from the built-in list, or linked from an outside location should be fine, this only applies to those who uploaded an avatar to the server using the form in the profile editor.  So, if your avatar is missing, just re-upload it and it'll be fine.

Glad to see the forums are back up and running. Hmm... what could you mean by surprises, I wonder.

Umm... I couldn't upload my avatar onto the server from my computer. Figure it's not important, but since the forums have just recently been brought back up I figured I should mention it in case it's a bug or something. Current OS is Linux and current browser is Firefox 3 beta 3. I don't believe it is important but...

Anyways, Best of luck with everything. :fox-:):

Everything appears to be working correctly on this end.  Please open a ticket about this, and give a much detail about the error message as you can.  Bonus points for screenshots:  www.furryteens.org/support/

Relating to Link's post, there is a known issue that we don't know how to fix affecting uploaded avatars in PNG format.  More information available here:  http://hosting.lupinia.net/support/issue_view.asp?ID=23
