  • Upgrade Time!!!

    Good day all. We are in the process of upgrading our site to the latest version of vBulletin. The upgrade should not cause much down time, but we've got to update a few background software packages as well so there may be some. If you have issues getting onto the board let us know on the NGTO facebook page.

      Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then. - Garrison Keillor

              Yes, we are all very excited about this upgrade! We are in good hands with Jamie driving and we also have the fine folks at Vbulletin helping out. Thus we anticipate that this should all go smoothly. But then again, this is tech crap and sometimes these system upgrades can go bit sideways on you. So we apologize in advance if there are a few kinks to work out after the upgrade goes in but any downtime should be minimal as Jamie stated.

              Keep your fingers and toes crossed and think happy tech thoughts!

                Jaime,

                Last time I had spoken with you and Swampy about this there had been mention of up to 40% of the old data & posts being compromised and lost. Will that be the case with the new updates as well?

                    Hopefully most of the old data can be retained (so much valuable info/tips etc.)..I know those of us less IT inclined appreciate all the efforts of those that maintain the outstanding NGTO forum..Looking forward to the updates!
                    Tight lines!!

                      We all appreciate the efforts put forth by out IT folks. Aaron Sago got NGTO up and running X years ago, and there have been several folks involved in keeping NGTO the best trout board anywhere since. All of these guys, and I won't attempt to call names, have done what they do on a volunteer basis. If during this process of this desperately needed upgrade we do lose data, files, or even somebody, please give our guys time to get everything sorted out.
                      I want to also give a shoutout as well to our BOD, moderators, and all those behind the scenes. THANK YOU!

                            Upgrade is still in progress. Running into some background software issues. You will probably notice down time in the evenings while we work through this.
