PS Admin, Do the Upgrade late at night so we dont have a internal server error, and then confusing people all day....

Sooo, Admin himself should stay up all night just so that we can all be satisfied and avoid a little inconvenience? :) All the guides have their own lives too and do their best to maintain the site on their own time. Plus, I have a feeling the upgrade process won't just be overnight. You may have missed Admin's earlier post:

    
The forums will stay open while I am testing things out. Which ever day I actually do the big upgrade I will have to turn the forums off for a couple hours or something as everything upgrades and stuff. I am going to do my best to make this a smooth transition. I am excited to get started. The software has been purchased and I am just waiting for them to do approval or whatever so I can download the software and start testing.


I think having the forums off for a couple of hours or so is a fair trade-off for what we're going to be getting. :)

@chrispilot2293 some people will still probably be confused, since there are tamatalkers all over this world (different timezones) so it really doesn't matter when admin does it because it will affect pretty much everyone and some people get on at night too.

Yeah.

Because, while a majority of people on here are american, whilst it would be night time for Admin, since I'm in New Zealand, it would be day time for me.

Anyhow, I'm excited for the upgrades!
I wish I could've helped, but my mum wouldn't let me ):

Wow! I just rejoined TamaTalk after a year's absence and am so excited and happy about being in time for the upgrade!!
If I had have joined before the fundraiser had started then I would've contributed but I had no idea there was a fundraiser until after I joined >_<

Anyway, it's great to see TamaTalk upgraded, I joined (for the first time) sometime in in 2006 and TamaTalk has basically stayed exactly the same since I first found it so it will be good to make it more up-to-date and better for the newest Tama user's generation.

People from other time zones would find this an inconvenience and in my case, it would actually happen during the daytime for my country. It's also unfair to ask Admin to stay up late just to convenience one time zone.
A good suggestion, although you needed to think of the bigger picture.


Here's for the new upgrade *raises glass up in the air* "Cheers!"

So as some have mentioned, it is really hard to find a time when nobody will be inconvenienced... As in I think it is impossible. Besides, you really don't want a half-awake admin messing around with a huge database and making major changes. :) Who knows how that would end up! I will do my best to avoid upgrading during our typically busy times... You have my word. I will also do my best to minimize how long it takes by practicing the upgrade before I do it.

Quick update... I made a copy of the database this morning so that I can test the upgrade. I also (finally) got access to the new software. I will begin work today when I have a chance. Please accept my apologies if you try to contact me and it takes a while. This upgrade is going to be my free time priority so I may not be checking messages as often as usual. :)

We all know you're putting forth your best and will understand if you're a little MIA for a bit. It's all going to look amazing! ;)
