I can't seem to get on the official vbulletin.com forum.

Anyone else have this issue?

--- edit: a maintenance message now comes up ---

They are doing an upgrade at the moment.

Mudcrutch 22 Oct 2009 17:51

Thanks. I was confused and thought you had to have an active license now to view them. That would have been bad!

Thanks for the link.

A very poor way to block off the forum. It needs a page with information as to why it is down and not just pop-up a prompt for a username/password. Confusing!

pff i send them a mail i thought they banned me or so
not a nice way to inform us :(

They are having technical problem with the upgrading process. It may have failed.
I was visiting it earlier when they started the upgrade and the forum is in debug mod and full of error message. Then 15 minutes later, they password it so people can't see the error.

I wonder if they failed and have to revert back to 3.8.4

Same, the only thing I saw was like a cache forum with debug enabled. They could have made a forward instead (like they have done when they started the maintenance) rather than password protect the whole forum.

Yea, I tried the same but it didn't work :p. I did contacted them about this though. Find it rather bad to password protect the whole forum which confused a lot of people. Forward to an URL or to a message that the forums are being worked on is much better. I find it rather unprofessional :-\. Of course they need to access the main forums but a forward on the main url should be the way to go.

They indicated PST. So should be up soon.

We're chatting live with vborg/vbcom/ib staff and users in irc.vbirc.com / #chat - feel free to join. lynne - tnx for showing up there too btw, always cool to see you poke hand in air and go WhooHooo :D

GregK1947 22 Oct 2009 19:36

Not a very good start if IB can't even get the upgrade to work. Oh well, doesn't affect me or my forums so I'll just keep checking back with them. But, it would have been nice if, like one user stated, they had a maintenance screen up letting people know what is going on.

Ah ha! The have their maintenance screen back up so they must be making progress. Hopefully it won't be much longer.
