We're Upgrading! Downtime Imminent

Recommended Posts

In preparation for the release of Diablo 3 and as apart of the standard progression of the site we are in the process of upgrading to the latest version of IPB. This upgrade will give us access to all the latest features of IPB along with new/current skins (yay!).

I'm not sure exactly when the upgrade/migration will take place but it should be soon. Please be aware that site will be down during this (unknown amount of) time.

It was my pleasure (?) it would have been a shame to see this place go the way of the dinosaurs...

DIII is right around the corner. Friends & Family Beta has already begun, and Closed Beta for everyone else will begin soon (any time from today until the end of the month).

"...the site is going back to dtrades.org"

Awesome. Deeeeeeeeeee trades was where it all began!

"re-worked version of the site's original white skin"

I am most excited.

"WE NEED A NEW LOGO"

Is there any possibility that the old Dtrades.org logo could be used? A few months ago I found a website that looks to be your creation (http://www.caintest.com/) but is now shut down. I believe it had the old logo. I'm quite fond of that one!

No problem, don't sweat it, I don't and I know I can't take it with me when I go so why not do something useful with it and help out with a site I myself have used for almost 8 years.

Wifes new ride.

update: I have about 10 years worth of crap I am sorting through on the servers before I am going to unleash Invision on the upgrade.

since we are pretty much starting over from scratch, may as well take the time to clean out the trash.

for those who don't know, I am going to nursing school, which is kicking my a**...this is part of the reason why things seem to move so slowly. I only have so much time I can work on this with a full-time job, full-time school, 2 teenagers to deal with. Yeah, it's a wonder I am not insane.

I know everyone is eager to see progress...hang in there it IS being worked on.

Cain, If I wanted to sell my computer as a server for you to purchase could we work something out! I'd sell at my cost minus the video card if we needed to, it would be an ideal server wouldn't it? Amd 1090 Processor black edition lol 6xcores @ 3.2!!

lol of course I would, just not at the moment...

what do you guys think of using diablothree.com instead?

with something like this for a logo...it would make more sense if you could see it on the skin, but I thought the powered by dtrades thing was cool...no, I am not an artist:

Trademark infringement?

That is I assume the Diablo 3 logo is a TM of Blizzard and I'm not sure if we can get away using it...

I actually let all my godly characters expire and deleted them. that was the best way for me to stop playing, and I was not going to allow all that one of a kind gear out into the wild. though I am going to miss that hammerdin I had, omg he was a beast. better to just let them die and move on.

I might give away all my enzod2 stuff at some point, probably after the site is done. I think I still have almost 150 accounts...or maybe I will just delete everything, seems like a lot of work for nothing.

aaaanyway, I have been poking away on the file system from work on my iphone, a little here a little there. unfortunately its like 100,000 files and 10 years worth of projects, ideas, backups, etc. you can't even imagine some of the crap I have come across. the funniest one so far was the porn shop I ran back in like 2001...totally forgot I had that lol. and there it was still running on the server, though obviously no sales since like 2003. ahhh what a crazy life I've had.

I don't even want to think about all time I've let expire on Diablo 2 accounts...I miss free-time.

If I have any of my ChrisD2 (or any) stuff left I'll join you in this giveaway.

When I'm in this situation I typically ghost the drive(s), delete everything that isn't essential to whatever I'm working on, and then forget about the drive I ghosted everything to.

Hasn't failed me yet...

the funniest one so far was the porn shop I ran back in like 2001...totally forgot I had that lol. and there it was still running on the server, though obviously no sales since like 2003. ahhh what a crazy life I've had.

I bet that goes good on a resume.

hah you guys don't know me well enough to know that I am far from a fuddy duddy squeaky clean kind of guy lol.

I managed to clean out everything BUT PostAbout...about 32 gigs worth of just web site crap (that's a LOT of sites), I feel so clean and fresh.

so that leaves this site...ugh. I left this place a mess, it's a wonder the site still runs lol.

so yeah I have an Anatomy & Physiology test today and Microbiology test on Thursday...don't expect anything to happen this week. with any luck the site will move this weekend. keep in mind that I have exams pretty much every week between now and christmas, I am perpetually studying for them. this weekend or November 5th (lol) are the best times to do it.

I am excited about it too guys, doing my best.

well I just put in an update on monday mr. impatient!

I did send a ticket in earlier today to Invision to clear up 2 more points of confusion on my part about the upgrade.

I am also trying to clean out a god awful amount of crap still...there is just so much it's ridiculous. yes, I am going to finish all of this before anything else happens.

the goal is this weekend, otherwise it's going to have to wait until my classes aren't killing me.

Trusty Trader is going to be kilt after the upgrade...I am moving the scores to the IPB Member Reputation feature instead. Since D2 is all but dead, there isn't really much point in having a separate rating system. One less thing to code.

However, I will put in some double rainbows and lollipops to those who earned the shield, just to make you feel all warm and fuzzy about life.

Shop items & forum gold are solid...they will definitely be in the new site, but it's going to take a large part of my brain to figure out how to get stuff from here to there...it's not the same system. Ugh, shoot me.

Arcade is meh, not sure I care. Chat or shoutbox will be there in some form, not sure I care. Casino/raffle may be there, still considering it, not sure I care. Did I mention I'm not sure I care?

Skins...I have 3 candidates so far, what do you guys think...you have to use your imagination a bit obviously I am going to modify the hell out of these if we use it/them:

Mactastic (replacement for original dtrades skin)

Engraved (I love this skin and it's free...this one is my choice)

Surface (zoom out a little to see whole image. I like the tabbed interface and I would definitely pay for this one - demo not working currently)

Are all of those skins 3.2.X compatible? I know some features got changed between 3.1.X and 3.2.X that requires skin modifications...

Engraved is pretty good, but I see no rush in picking a skin. I think the default will serve us fine for awhile - I'm excited for the upgrade...screw the skin :(

Cain's been busy with his school stuff I think, hes been posting on FB about tests and shit.

Apparently he punched one of his teachers so hard that he went from failing a test, to passing it.
