Simply put, I'm going to delay the board update and make sure things are running smoothly on OTR before I install it here. While I have full access to everything on TLN, I feel like I have a LOT of wiggle room on my own site, so if anything were to go wrong, I can access backups and old skins quicker.

So I'll be testing the update out, and then I'll dive into it here, and I'll try and put out a new skin that compliments the blog.

Priority is stability. I don't want our forums going down for an extended amount of time, or any data loss that requires us to restore to an earlier date.

Are you planning to make the skin changes after it's updated, or do them behind the scenes? There is quite a bit that needs to be changed.

I could just create the skin on OTR, then import it over here after the update.

More than likely, I'll just redo the entire skin.

Hit a brick wall, and now I really do have to re-create the skin from scratch.

I'll implement some changes, and we'll see how it goes.

I could install the upgrade right now, but I would have to set TLN to the default IPB skin, which isn't too ugly...but it's also blue and black, and those aren't Lakers colors. :P

Take your time. Important thing is that the updates run clean after installed.   :rock:
