    Oooh I've got butterflies just thinking about it... :shock: !
    Just one question, will the URL remain the same, i.e. ?

    Looking forward to the lovely new look, best of luck.

    Yup, the URL will be the same, no plans to change that..:) the only difference is that this domain will take you to a portal/information/summary page instead of to the main forum view.

    Won't be so hard for us who are away for a few hours that evening.

    Must thank you all again for the brilliant work you all do.
    John in particular, thanks for the forsight you had, at the beginning in starting what has been and will continue to be a very successful venture.

    Will the new system be slower or quicker at downloading threads/info :?:
    At the moment on dial-up, this version can be a bit sluggish (but bearable) and I'm hoping that it won't be any worse after the switch :p

    Sometimes change is good, and by the look of the sample this will be the case! Can't wait

    Hi Stephen

    I will be providing two templates for you to choose from - one will be the exciting all new customised tMP design, and the other, a non-grapical version, which will be much faster to load. The choice as to which style you use will be entirely up to you.

    As you may already know, we are planning the tMP application migration from phpBB to vB this Wednesday evening.

    Please Note:

    tMP will be closed from around 20:00 on Wednesday 25th August for about 8 hours.

    I will then hopefully re-open the site in the early hours with the all- new customised tMP design and new application in vBulletin.

    I will post regular status updates during the migration process on and if possible, also on for anyone who may be interested in seeing how the whole migration is going (moral support appreciated during the silent hours... ;) )

    Thanks folks...

    Final Reminder

    tMP will be closed this evening at 20:00 sharp to undertake the move to the new design.

    We will re-open sometime in the early hours and I will post regular status updates throughout the migration process.

    Hi John,

    I got your mail and mailed back immediately!

    My messaging seems to be being a bit stupid as well. I just tried to pm you and the message just sat there in my outbox glaring at me. Weird!

    Welcome back everyone - and thanks for the wait. Well, it is 03:37 and I am very nearly ready to make some final changes to the format and layout, and then I can re-open tMP as promised. Another hour or maybe a little less and I will be ready.

    I experienced some major issues during the upgrade - the worst was a total failure in NTL Broadband services in the Newport area from around 1:00 which caused me serious issues. There are also several features that time has not allowed me to implement or activate, but please hang fire, I will get around to these in the coming days.

    I really hope you all like the new look tMP. It has taken a lot of time, money and effort to get here, please enjoy it and offer your feedback and comments.
