Welcome to the all-new Matt-Hughes.com forums!

We switched back to the Yahoo server last weekend, but lost some files in the transfer. So instead of delaying getting the forums back online any longer, we decided it was best to just start over.

If you had an account on the previous forums, then you will need to reregister here. We apologize for that, but it was the best and fastest way to get the forums up and running again as soon as possible.

Thanks Nate! While I'm sad we lost everything in the transfer (33000 Dave posts, the Boomer tales, the cool vids)....

It's kinda cool to be able to start over again :)

It's nice to be back.

Question: Not sure how to get my avatar back up. When I try to change it it only has one option that I can select, that option is do not use an avatar. I can't change it. I went into USER CP and options and it has show signatures, avatars, etc selected but no option to USE an avatar.

underneath at the bottom of the edit avatar page there should be an area where you can upload or enter a url for the image.

Sorry about that. I forgot to set the "Use Custom Avatar" option for Registered Users as well. I just had it set for Admin and Moderators.

Nate,

If you want/need to get things running with all the old data please let me know. I have an AMAZING sysop that runs irshell.org (not to be pronounced irs hell) that can work just about a miracle with things. He single handed rebuilt our hacked data and was able to salvage 99% of everything we had.

If you'd like his info, he is 100% trustworthy. I'm sure he'd at the very least look at it and let you know what would be needed to get as close to 100% as possible.

Sweet...it's good to be back...I changed my name and my look....I was formally known as CanadianMMAF. It was a log name that got to be a pain in the butt to type in when I was logging in from shared computers. So yeah, I kinda borrowed Nate's way and just did the first name and last initial.

Three years of my life ..... suddenly .. just not there. Three years of tears, and smiles and slams ...... as if it never happened. I feel a void ...

There are some threads that I would like to salvage. Mostly ones tied in with Matt's blogs and the Boomer tales, but as it is, I like the simplicity of just leveling the playing field and starting everyone over from scratch.

The Multi-Quote function doesn't seem to be here either.

Since Yahoo only support PHP 4.3 and below, I actually had to download an older version of vBulletin to insure that they would run smoothly (this is 3.5 and the newest version is 3.8), so it appears that some functions aren't available in this version. I'll keep looking, they might just not be turned on.

They're not gone forever. I actually have every single thread, post and PM from the old forums in an SQL file. However, it's just massive blocks of unformated text, so it's going to take some time to dig any particular threads out. But I do plan to save your Boomer tales.

You better start your Boomer tale book......that would sell millions of copies for sure :cool:
