>>11092>So what would happen if we migrated?
Basically we'd have to deal with bugs, broken CSS and missing frontend features for a bit.
We lose the current frontend, potentially breaking all boards that have customized their CSS. And things would look different. We may lose a couple features that we had in the frontend.
I've already got a copy of the code all merged. We even had a few admins and testers find some bugs we've fixed already.
So the question is what are the pros and cons. Why disrupt the cozy? Is it worth it. Would it make our users happier.>Would the site be up?
I estimated the down time to be less than an hour.> Would it only be for the [.]org domain of the site or would it be for all 3 at the same time?
It's a backend upgrade, so all versions of the site would be down for this time.>Although we do get some "connection failure" messages sometimes. And sometimes the site goes really slow for some reason. But it's nothing major
We think we figured out the slow issue and got it solved.>>11095> I would argue that laymen are not the best people to judge technical aspects of software.
We have judged the technical aspects of your software and not asking for that.> Most users never come in touch with most of the features of a software of this type.
Yea, that's why we're asking. > If you would ask me, the biggest changes since 1.7 were
Thank you for this list it's very helpful. And even I going over it and like damn that would be nice.>>11097> I think the real question is, what is there to lose?
Some of the frontend JS feature that aren't present in other LynxChans.> Can the latest version match that, because it surely would be a hassle to port that stuff over.
Yea, they would initially be missing but we could add them back over time.>My one major annoyance with the site is uploading a file only to find I need block bypass after upload. I have mentioned this to Lynx before and he has commented that on later versions, this should be avoidable.>The one fun advancement as I see it is custom user CSS and JS. Filters are cool too but people have real fun sharing JS snippets and CSS tweaks on chans.
These can easily be add to the current version.
