Believe that change was made months (years?) ago, as the MilPoints backwards glance now only goes back 30 days to reduce server load.  (Or maybe I made that up; my memory is not what once it was)

You got it. There's a script that archives the old MilPoints logs. All data is retained, but the MP table is kept small to allow fast transfers.

Folks, you may have noticed that the site was down from early this morning until about noon. I was attempting a major database upgrade, and was unsuccessful. I have made some changes and plan to re-attempt tomorrow morning. I would expect the site will be down from about 0500-1000 AT tomorrow.

I did like the "go have a coffee" screen.  And if you already have a coffee, sip slower.  ;D

Heheh, it's not a conspiracy, I promise. :) Ads are targeted based on the individual user, and honestly, how much Google knows about you. I've yet to see a single Russian ad, but I do see ads for tech and local (to me) businesses. Could be related to your other internet activities/location/etc.

The last few days I've been getting repeated pop up warning messages from my Avast anti-virus of having secured a URL:Mal infection delivered by the adserver from Amazonaws.com while browsing Army.ca forums. I presume it's not your site itself but some of the ads hosted on it causing the issue.

The log-in seems to kick me out once or twice a day even though I selected the trust device for 30-days option. The two-step verification makes it a bit of a pain to keep logging in. Is this because I’m logging in in different devices (laptop, tablet, phone)?

It seems that some of the smileys didn't migrate.

That said! Way to go on the smoothest forum migration I have ever seen!

Two very small points:
  1. I very much rely on the system's spell checker to keep me from looking totally uneducated. The current systems red underlining is harder to see than the previous one's and I've missed a few suggested corrections. Is there any way to brighten that up?
Thanks for all the good work. After a few days of using the new system I've gotten to understand how it thinks and to like most of the differences.

XenForo doesn’t directly control spell checking feature. I’ve noticed weird glitches but the provider of the editor is a 3rd party and has something to do with them.

Also, I recommend using Grammarly!
