This website is currently going to go by the end of tomorrow (Wed), evening time.
We will no longer be using PHPNuke or the main website as you see it.

Also the webhosting is moving (levi is going to put it on his own server).

We will be swopping to phpbb forums, so it will just be a forum like it used to be and a shoutbox.
Some may remember it; black/red themed, full screen width (depending on your screen).

Much more simple and clean all round.
All posts/users will be saved, some posts may be missing, but it should be fine.

Also wakeislandwarriors.com will need to be renewed in DEC this year, which is about £10.

So tomorrow the dns may be down for some people until it has time to propagate, usually upto a couple of hours but mostly dns these days is instant, so if it seems down- don't worry!

Thanks to all users of the forums, see you on the other side! :D :tu:

i plan to make a final backup of the current forum around 20:00 NL-time (GMT+2) this evening. I advise NOT to post anything after that, but wait untill i made a post saying transfer is succesfully done.

on another note:


once the transfer is complete i will do some moderation on the forum. This will include the moving and/or deleting of topics. I dont plan to delete half of the forum but some things are outdated (a lot) and need to be replaced. If anyone has specific posts that he/she does not wish to be deleted please pm me

I suggest no deletion, but moving them. I will arrange as best of possible what you suggested to me niels. As well i will make an  "Archive Forum" that will contain "the Bin" and old forums, that lost there relevance.

added some questions for spam, however, humans are signing up spamming, not bot's so looks like an ongoing issue. lol.
