    I was clicking onto another martial arts forum but got the following message.

    I thought it had gone too easily...

    The name of the forum is being withheld because I am unsure if posting it would be a breach of protocol here.

    But if you know this forum, does anyone know what it is going on? None of their links work and that message is pretty creepy.

    Dang. That doesn't look good.

    They recently tried to upgrade to the new version of the forum software....we use the same here but we haven't upgraded yet.

    Wonder if the upgrade corrupted the site, Bob almost lost MartialTalk in an upgrade snafu.

    Ok, not to be difficult here, but how can I know the forum you speak of if you withhold the name of the forum?

    Yeah, the message came up for me too. I wouldn't be too worried because I think they recently posted bulletin messages about upgrading or servicing the site and there might be some problems. According to the message, I guess they did have problems. Hopefully it'll be back up soon. I prefer this forum anyway.

    FYI -- while we don't encourage promoting another forum (saying things like "hey, go look at..." without any actual discussion) it's OK to name them. There is a list of antagonistic sites, and they'll be blocked just like profanity.

    MAP's in the middle of some server migrations and software updates. From what I've read, the upgrade to vB4 is a royal PITA.

    That's because Bob, the staff, and the members here (I always think your posts are valuable, Letch) make this forum such a wonderful place to hang out. :asian: It would just be another site without all the great people we have here and all the hard work and dedication put into MT.

    I should really say a big THANK YOU to all of you :asian: and an extra big THANKS to Bob and the staff!!! :asian: :asian: :asian: :asian: :asian:
