Unfortunately this upgrade is only for the forum, so the game won't be affected. :) However, Episode 2.5 which is still being made at the moment may have some bug fixes -

You can keep updated on the progress on episode 2.5 on WolfQuest News and Announcements. ^^

Ahm, (clears throut) ^Sorry for spelling right there^ Hmmmm....... Sorry, throut hurts. Umm.... (Thinking,i'm so spacing out right now....) hmmm... Oh! Forum updates huh? How will this take place? And when will it take place? Will we see any thing change to the WQ forum?
Also, sorry. You won't see me on as much any more becuase my computer has a horid freezing problem that gets worse each time. My dad makes our computers, so he said he will try to fix it. Also, I normaly only get to go on weekends for to much homework on weekdays. So sorry if I ask something I did not see clearly in past topics. But I will always try to find it in the topics like how I always do. :(

Sorry off topic, but it is about WQ forum profiles. I am having problems with getting a avetar on my profile. Can someone help me out here? :?

Sorry about your throat!

Anyways, the forums have been changing. But, maybe this quote will help you out:
Cana wrote:...So hopefully this week or next, we're planning on upgrading the forum to the latest available version. What does that mean for you? If all goes well, the only change you may notice is a slight difference in the forum colors. (We are currently using three forum style templates, most of which will not be compatible with the new forum version, but there are some templates created specifically for the updated version of the forums that look very similar to what we're currently using.)
Also, as for your avatar problem, check the extension. (Bitmap, PNG, GIF, etc) If it isn't PNG, it probably won't work, or at least that's what I figured out with my experience. Also, you should check if the picture is too big. (The maximum size is 100x100)
But, you should better check with a mod. (Koa,-Sheeba, Rikku, and Silverness are probably the best since they are good artists and have experience with avatars)

Everything goes smooth with upgrades, just like the upgrade from windows XP to vista. That went VERY smooth :roll: I just hope WolfQuest has a better time than me :?

I wish you good luck on updating the PHPBB version. I want to warn you though.
Do not underestimate the changes between a far outdated version and a new version of PHPBB and the style with it. I recommend that there will be looked into the SQL code aswell. Such a huge change can come with broken SQL code.

Which amount of uplink speed does the WQ server has?

I agree, there is some code that is different in the 2007 version than in the 2011 version. I remember when I upgraded and my site went down, and it still it! phpBB said I would have to re-make my site since it was so old. I upgraded from the 2005 so it was a bit older.

I hope for a smooth upgrade guys ^^

WQ Coordinator wrote:Ah, the question of the year. Yes, it is possible the upgrade will improve server performance. We've tried to determine the cause of the lag, and while forum lag is typically caused by too many people loading too many pages, this obviously isn't the sole cause of our lag here, because it happens even when only a few people are online. So the next possible cause could be from problems with the forum itself. And judging by the fact that whole forums have completely disappeared and the User Guides and THH forums are on the fritz now, that could be a strong possibility. Whether these issues will be fixed with a forum upgrade, well, your guess is as good as mine, but it sure doesn't hurt to try. It would be absolutely stellar if the forum upgrade solved the lag issues... that's one major thing we're hoping for. But we can all cross our fingers and see what will happen.

That is such great news, I can't wait!

Yea, the last thing we need it for the forums to be remade. We already have enough trouble making the new 2.5, we dont need both on top of each other 8)
