I hope that everyone, family members and friends are safe and sound during these difficult times? We, at the Dark Blues wish all you well and be safe!

This is just an update regarding the forum and what is happening. Over the last few months, the amount of money from Adverts has not been covering the cost of the forum. Scott and myself have spoken about this, and Scott has kindly and graciously said he would pick up the slack during these times. The issues we have been facing with adverts has now been fixed.

On a personal note, the reason why I have not been as active as I would like on the forum as I would like, is due to my on going health issues which prevent me from being on the computer as long as I would like.

In the next few weeks, there will be a massive update to the forum software, this will require us to be off-line for a good few ours. This might mean that parts of the forum will be unavailable while we update software for the next version of our software.

Safe safe everyone!

Special thanks to Scott for helping to cover on a financial level with additional funds, during these not so good times :happyyes:

Whilst giving him my respect, if the moment arises, maybe you can relay, my pocket money situation remains the same :tears:

Site updates.

  1. I have removed a lot of unused application which were installed.
  2. I also fixed a few issues with the theme which was causing a flashing effect when the site was loading.
  3. Moved a few things into Redis to help free up overhead with MySQL. So, things should be a bit snappier all-round.

There is an issue with the forum when trying to edit your posts.

I am trying to find out the issue, so in the mean time I will most likely put up a temp theme so you guys can still post away on the forum.
