  • All Major Server and Site Upgrades Completed

    Please see Aug-Sept 2018: Server Migration & Forum Upgrades for status reports on the various bugs and issues reported.

    At this point, the following have been completed:

    • The site has been moved to a new dedicated server with ample disk space and resources to fun the forum.
    • The forum software has been updated to the latest in the vBulletin 4 series, version 4.2.5.
    • Various security measures have been put in place both on the server and on the forum itself to protect user data and user security.
    • The site has been converted to SSL (requiring an HTTPS connection). Measures and utilities have been put into place to convert any existing insecure links to 3rd party content, primarily images.
    • Updates have been made to bring the site into compliance with the GDPR, as much as the vBulletin software allows. See Politics.ie Privacy Statement and Politics.ie Terms of Use.


    Remaining to do:

    • Uninstall remaining disabled addons which are no longer required or which are not compatible with the current vBulletin version or server configuration.
    • Clean up files on the server from installations of old addons or previous versions of vBulletin which may constitute a potential security vulnerability.
    • Review the Suggestions for New Features, Display Changes, and Rule Changes after the Upgrades thread regarding suggestions and requests for feature improvements and evaluate what can be implemented without interfering with policies in place by current forum staff.

      Its alright, the old style was much better. This looks like something from the 1990's.

      In a way I'm glad it has finally died. A merciful release.
