Post subject: ** SPECIALS 2 SITE CHANGES - IMPORTANT UPDATE NEWS ** Reply with quote

As we undergo new site changes, one of the major parts is the migration of the community pages to a new set up. The current platform is very very shaky and doddery but that's because its very old. Posts vanish/ threads vanish sometimes and that needs attending to.

The new forum platform allows about 50,000 posts to be imported and we have 52,000. so we will lose 2,000 of the very oldest threads.

During this migration period, PMs may go as well.
So it is suggested that if you have anything saved or PMs you class as important then PLEASE NOW BACK UP BY SAVING THOSE MESSAGES ELSEWHERE.

Thanks folks. Not long now. Cool

As The Specials move into their next phase as a five piece band, The Specials 2 website will move into its new phase. We will be bringing you a sleeker site with embedded community page - More pics/videos and it will be here that you can have exclusive downloads/news and of course any pre-sale links to tours. Exciting times all round it seems! Stay tuned!



Thats a "4 piece" now then...... Sad Cool

trying to find a new server and hoster to import everything from this site to the next is a nightmare.

The site will continue to support all 7 members of the original band, the band as it will be when the site comes into place and any other Specials related material and solo projects.

During the depression, unemployed men would go around neighbourhoods looking for work without much sympathy from the neighbours. My grandmother would find something for them to do around the place so she could give them some money. My grandfather would come home from work and find the lawn cut, so he wasn't much bothered.
