The following has been completed this weekend:
1) bulletin board has been upgraded to most recent phpBB version 3.0.3
2) the failed Photo Album (which was no longer being developed), has been replaced with Photo Gallery which appears to be more robust
3) i finally figured out and resolved a bug that caused navigational buttons to be overlapped with their Text Names.
Several of the images from the 'Photo Album' have remained in the database. I am looking into a way to port them over to the new Gallery system.
If this is possible, it will most likely be a tedious process, so feel free to re-upload your images.
If you notice any kinks in the system please let them be known in the Suggestions/Comments Box:viewforum.php?f=16
Finally, i wanted to thank you all for informing me of the system failure in October, and apologize that it took a while for me to bring it back up.
