Ok guys talk here

Post by Seana on Wed May 13, 2015 10:37 pm

This thread is for hairtell refugees while I attempt to work with the techies to fix their server. It's getting bad, we can talk about it here.

Ok let me first give a general update as to how the issue stands. I think Dee will back me up on most of what I am about to tell you.

First, for the many who question my involvement, I learned a ton from hairtell and support the site as a general medium. I am best in a technical position to describe sysmptoms to Andrea and the Techie that works for her. So I've stepped up to the plate and tried to instigate a fix to hairtells technical woes.

Hairtell is currently broken, and it appears to be getting worse. The posts we are allwoed are shorter, barely over a sentance. We can communicate here ( or anywhere here) but I have no way to get posts back to hairtell once issues are fixed.

I have been in comunication with Dee, Andrea, and the Techie working on the issue. I can tell you some of the current status of the problem.

It likely is not possible for hairtell to be revived on it's current platform.The issue is critical. However it has stayed up for a year since the upgrade that caused this issue in the first place. I have every confidence that the 15 or more years of Data and posts can and will be revived.However it is a massive amount of data.

After speaking with Dee and the techie I will tell you where this all is headed. Hairtell is about to get a massive overhaul. The exact methodology, or what that overhaul will look like, is still being determined. The Techie has been attmpting to move the data to Vbulletin, a different platform from Ubbthreads. IT means the data as to be run through a php script to be converted. It gets about 1/2 way and fails. These are the types of issues that are prevelent when you attempt to take data from one piece of software, to something completely different that worlks differently.
The option of upgrading to a newer version of UBBthreads, I know is also being explored. I dont know that the current version would solve all our problems though, it has it's issues as well.
PhpBB software is an option, it's what I use here, but it has had some security flaws on some versions in the past.

There is one further hindrance to hairtell's revival , and that is that the techie and Andrea are busy with other matters. Their company just sold a film, and they will not get to address these issues fully, for possibly 2 weeks. The site is almost, not quite, but almost, down at this point. The symptoms are worsening and I do not know why. Hairtell has been a valued resource, and despite my sometimes antagonistic attitude towards some of it, I wish for it ot continue as long as possible.

The techie is working on it. We will have to be patient, it may take weeks to correct. It can be corrected, with the right combination of technology. Wait and see what the new hairtell has in store for us. Int he meantime, feel free to join and discuss here I've opened my doors. It's better than one liners Smile

I forgot to mention you will need to make an account to post here. This isnt hairtell . But anyone is welcome to. I just think being able to discuss without the limitations will be helpful until the server is fixed.

Welcome Josepha.
