IMPORTANT: Major Site Upgrade!!

I will be conducting a major site upgrade on Wednesday, December 18th starting around 8am. This will upgrade the back end from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 and will improve the site's functionality, reliability and security. The site will be down for the duration, which I expect to take about 24 to 48 hours.
PLEASE BACK UP ANY CRITICAL CONTENT.
While I'll be backing everything up prior to the upgrade, disasters happen!
When the site comes back up, there will be some changes in functionality (particularly with Events). We'll also have a 'out of the box' theme for the site until I can get the themes more or less upgraded (upgrading themes has been a somewhat tedious process in the past, so this may take well beyond the 48 hours I'm allotting for this).
If you have any questions/concerns, feel free to reply here.

That's definitely my plan.

That's definitely my plan.  Long-term, if I run into problems porting them over, I know a certain Quebecois I can hit up for help ;)

I think the vital question is, will we have PMs? :P

PMs appear to work, but I haven't confirmed it yet.
The guild info page opens directly to general guild info. I don't see any option to view game specific guild info. This could lead to confusion when I direct people to the forums.

I can't seem to find an option to "mark all read". Dunno if anyone else considers that important or not.

Yes, that's important. Good catch. I'm too OCD to do without that button.
Also, PM's have been confirmed. We have PMs again.
Another thing I've noticed, is that when you open up a topic, you seem to be halfway down the page. I have to scroll up to see the topics, so there might be a page formating problem.

There's definitely some trouble with things like signatures and icon images. Here:

There are threads visible in

There are threads visible in the sidebar on the right under "Active Forum Topics" that are not visible on the main forums - I'm assuming they're in the officer section, mayhaps. They show up in the list, but if they're clicked on, return an error of "You don't have permission to view this topic".
Not a life-threatening issue, but perhaps having hidden topics visible on the front page is less than stellar. :D

EDIT: After poking about, I'm not entirely sure where these topics are originally hosted, but they show up as home-page forum posts. This means the first several lines of each post are visible to anyone reading the home page scroll.

Shoutbox shows up for me when I first load the homepage (before I log in),
but once I log in, I can't see it anymore.

Any updates on site updates?

Any updates on site updates? It's really hard to use, and we're losing forum viewers, making communication a major issue.
