    Default Back With New Forum

    Welcome back members, you may have noticed that we have been offline for a week. This is due to the hosting company in America going down without a trace, a lot of other sites using the same company have suffered the same with no-one being able to get their data back or contact the host. Fortunately, we took a full server backup a month before this all happened.

    To bring the forum back, we have dipped into the funds (kindly donated by various members), and purchased a brand new copy of Vbulletin V4, so we are running this now with a converted database. The new copy of Vbulletin also gives us Vbulletin V5 which we will upgrade to once it is stable enough.

    The site is currently hosted via a different host, which is running a lot faster than expected

    A lot of hard work has gone on behind the scene to bring the forum back as quickly as possible. It will take some time to tweak and fix things and setup a forum skin (style) similar to what we had before, so please, if you spot any errors/problems, post them here. There will be about 4 weeks of posts missing so please repost any of yours that are missing.

    Please note! The url is now ukcvs.net Please pass it on to other members you are in contact with, however a mass email will be sent in a few days to all existing members

    Welcome back all, and a Happy Christmas from all of the Admin Team.
