As you can see, we've been busy behind the scenes! You may notice some differences:


Firstly this forum has been upgraded to v9.60, this means that quite a few of the mods we used are no longer compatible. Hopefully they'll be upgraded and will be put back in soon.

Secondly, we now use an MS SQL Database instead of an access database. This means that the forum is quicker, more reliable and can cope with thousands of members and (literally) millions of posts.

Thirdly, the domain.
In order to get the changes mentioned above we decided to move hosting to the people who created the forum system (Actually the creator of Web Wiz Forums, Bruce, was the one who set it all up and converted the access database to MS SQL so much props to him) as it means that they are the ones who upgrade the forum when the newer version is released.
Also, it seems to be the general consensous that we're not as popular as we could be because people automatically assume we're a Christian fan site. Because of this we decided to register tupwrestlingforum.com  and call ourselves The Unprettier Wrestling Forum - that way we stick to our TUP roots (don't forget the move is now called the killswitch or something)  but move on for the good of the forum. RIP Captain Charisma's Wrestling Forum. All Hail The Unprettier Wrestling Forum. The banner is just a temporary thing I came up with in 2 mins, so we'll be on the look out for a better one soon. I just thought it was relevent at the time of making it LOL

As for the theunprettier? Well we own it til August 2010 so it's staying for now. Just in case you don't remember our new forum, we've set it up so it should divert from the old url to here.

Hope you like the improvements!

Webby

* That's because we made the changes especially for you Wink
 
* I've noticed we have lost the flipping bird icon Cry If the Webby Is God icon was still here i'd have used it for the work done today Tongue
 
* Mass email is great to have back (once I can find it lol). Can email our 900 plus members twice a month to tell them about our WWE and TNA prediction games.

Wise move with the name change, unfortunately people tend to judge everything on first impressions and the first thing that sprang to mind before was a Christian fan site so hopefully the new name will draw in more new members, and hopefully members that will actually post. Tongue

The forum runs faster now which is great.

Where is the flipping the bird smiley gone Webby?

Yea, I thought this was a Cage fan site too! Until I read further. :-P
Also whomever Facebook messaged me telling me about this site, I somehow was under the Impression that this was a site built around Taz. LOL

The site does run faster too!

* To answer that it was a modification and not part of the software. So it's something Webby will have to add back seperately like the active user list and staff names below each catergory as and when possible.
 
* The forum is indeed super quick. We can now cope with millions of posts and hundreds of users online together WHEN we get that big Tongue
 
* When writing a post the box is bigger as well. I'm sure Fletcher as seen a few big boxes in his time Wink

I dont care what this sites name is. It is, and always will be the best wrestling forum in all the land. This is my 1st and only forum I have ever been apart of. I am glad that admin found me on youtube and pushed me to the site. Best site ever! And now with the upgrades you have done the impossible. And made a great thing greater.
