ok, upgrade is done. it's not complete
complete, still tweaking some things (like "recent posts" isn't exactly working right), but figured i'd get you all back in here to tell me if stuff is working or not. lmk if things aren't operating properly, you can't see things you used to, etc. main issue that kept us down for a couple days was permissions based, and it took a while to sort that out, so again please do let me know if you can't see/post/reply/etc. anywhere.
also, a couple things:
1) you will probably want to re-upload your avatars if they look like shit. size was changed and they need to be re-parsed.
2) you'll notice the youtube tag is gone. this is because now, in order to post ANY media, be it twitter, youtube, etc., and have it embed, all you have to do is post the link, nothing more. makes it super easy going forward. however, all existing posts that used the youtube tag don't get automagically updated. if we pull up an old topic, i'll go through and manually remove the youtube tags so things update, but all new posts will (should) work fine.
3) i combined the interface, sci/tech, and sports into one forum. the latter two weren't really used very much so no need for them to take up vertical space.
4) this site should now play very nicely with your mobile devices, if you want to use them here, btw.
