No more bounties - So what is Breck now gonna do to "embarrass" people? (FWIW, IMHO bounties never seemed to work in their original sense - help has been given regardless of bounties, so it's no loss if they are unavailable. )

March 4th Update: Note that I have pushed the switch-over date back a week due to the need to fix a bug in Sqlanywhere-forum site which is causing comments/answers to be lost (at what appears at random) when a comment is changed to an answer. Hopefully we'll have this fixed by next Friday? Thanks for everyone's comments and suggestions so far. Keep them coming.

Today is March 11th, that is, the week is over ;).

A couple of changes to the site that were not in the beta:

  • all files uploaded are now scanned for viruses. If the scan fails, the upload is cancelled.
  • email notifications are disabled for users migrated from the old SQLA site. If you want to enable email notifications, click on your user name at the top, then select "User tools > email notification settings" from the menu at the top.
  • a number of actions require a higher reputation score than they did in the beta
