    Forum Downtime 10pm TONIGHT Wednesday 29th Nov

    In order to upgrade the forum, to the latest version of vbulletin, there is likely to be a period when the forum is closed.

    This will be between 10pm - Midnight tonight.

    It is unlikely the upgrade will take as long, but as soon as the forum is open again you can post.

    Remeber to use the helpdesk during this time

    Yeah there are a few things that makes Escouts slightly more awkward:

    The size of the database
    THe several plugins we use

    We have been getting loads of spam users lately. Fortunately we ask awkward questions, like what do you do in Scouting! So I can prevent them from posting, by deleting them before they post.
