it would be great if the tournament live play thread gets moved here, in general poker for easy accesshttp://www.fullconta...howtopic=146050great stuff here Daniel :club: awesome , glad to see this again

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.

The copying of the data from the old server to the new server seems to have gone very well and Gov just has a little bit more testing to do.Wed morning at 10:30 we won't allow any new forum accounts to be created.At 11 AM the forum on the old server will be turned off and no new posts will be allowed to be made. At this time the data migration company will move over and integrate any new data from the last 48 hours or so so everything that is on the old server will be on the new server.Once Gov has done a bit of testing he will change the DNS for fullcontactpoker.com to point to the new server and no longer the old server. For those of you who don't know each server has a different IP Address and currently when you link to fullcontactpoker.com it points to the old server's IP Address. Tomorrow Gov will have fullcontactpoker.com point to the new server's IP Address. This process will take from 4-48 hours depending on how fast the new IP Address has been propogated to the DNS server that your ISP uses. Once you see an open forum Wednesday night or Thursday you will be on the new server, if you see a closed forum that means that you are still pointing to the old server.You shouldn't see any changes as it should be a mirror of the old server.On Friday the forum will be shut down and the new forum software will be installed on the new server. The process of installing and adjusting the new forum software should be completed either on Friday evening or by mid day on Saturday.Gov will be tweeting updates to https://twitter.com/#!/pokerfcp during this process.

Post Upgrade NoticeWe've upgraded the FCP Forum from version 2.x to the newest version of Invision Power Board. After doing so, there are a few things you need to be aware of.AvatarsIn the previous version of Invision Power Board, users were able to upload avatars & profile photos. The latest version of the software no longer supports both and uses only 1 image going forward. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, many avatars did not carry over to the new board, so if you happen to have lost your avatar you’re going to have to start fresh. Sorry for the mishap (Mine was gone as well).Post FormattingThe new version uses a different way to display bbcode from the database. Right now many posts that have "quoted other users" will look odd temporarily. We are running a script in the background that loops through the database and updates each post one at a time, so they’ll look better soon. The process takes a while though as it has to dig through 3.5 million posts and check one word at a time. I'm expecting it to go all weekend.Please Report Any Bugs HereThe above 2 items are issues I've had to discover, but if you happen to come across any glitches, bugs or problems please post them here so I can fix them asap.Look & FeelThe new version has a different layout and I’ve worked much of the day creating a new skin for the board. I kept it similar to the past but cleaner looking around the edges. If you have any ideas in mind feel free to post suggestions.SecurityAdmins have a lot more control over spam going forward. We have options to use 3rd party screening of all sign ups and overall it’s a much more secure board and the reason we had to upgrade.Other FeaturesThere are more features & addons we can enable and may roll out down the road. For now we just want to get use to our new controls.

Looks really snazzy. I especially like the skinning.
