    I am going to do some major forum upgrades this week.

    More details will follow.

    Downtime will run from 19:00 to 21:00 GMT.

    That's starting at 3:00 PM Eastern / Noon Pacific for those of us in América del Norte.

    Expect *zero* service while upgrades are occurring. I will probably take most of the forum offline during that time.

    I'm going to protest the upgrades. I will not post during the downtime.

    I will use this downtime to reflect upon what I can do to improve the quality of my posts.

    Me too. We need to do something to improve your post quality. I will let you know if I come up with any ideas. For now, I'd suggest not posting. That would definitely help.

    I will record some of your posts and break them down frame-by-frame. It's not really an inconvenience. That is what I like to do in my free time. What one person may perceive to be a stupid post, after in-depth slow-motion analysis, may just turn out to be a stupid post .

    You seem to have an agenda against good grammar.

    I don't see Drath Tater around anywhere. Was that part of the upgrade?

    Ok, short update. Tapatalk (mobile device app support) is offline for the minute. It's throwing errors and I will need time to investigate why.

    Other than that, all functionality should be as normal. Please post if you notice anything screwed up. Yes, I know the championship tags for fantasy aren't showing, that's one of the last things I will get to as it's non-critical.

    TY.

    It's a philosophical question really. Is upgrading the forum downgrading DT or is downgrading DT upgrading the forum?

    Tapatalk should be enabled and working properly again. Anyone who has the mobile phone app, can you please put it through its paces and let me know if you spot any issues?

    Thanks in advance (TIA).
