    Software Update Today!
    Hey everyone! I'm planning a software update for Pandora today! It's an important maintenance, security and stability update, including a change from ReCAPTCHA v1 to ReCAPTCHA v2.

    ReCAPTCHA v1 is being retired in 2018. This is google's defense against spam, so with this maintenance update, I expect our bot problem should be significantly reduced.

    Another fix that I think should make some of you guys happy is this:
    I'm currently downloading backups of the current files and database. After that is complete, I'm going to begin the upgrade process. I'll give a 15 minute warning before I begin. Please keep an eye on this thread or the #Announcements channel in Discord. After I begin the upgrade process, do not attempt to post content on Pandora. You may lose it.

    We're back now! Thank you everyone for your patience!

    Please reply here if you notice any bugs, style issues, or anything else that seems off. I also did a framework upgrade of our theme which undid some of our style customizations, so those are things I'll be on the lookout for.

    Hiya! I noticed that the buttons edit, quote, reply, which used to be at the bottom of the posts, now have a large gap beneath them.

    A signature doesn't seem to make much difference.

    This looks different than it did before the update.

    Hey there, thanks so much for updating the site!!

    I couldn't help but notice that some header titles are coming out smaller than they should be, and a white color instead of the classic orange? Even though code-wise, there's no difference at all that I can tellfrom other threads where the headers haven't changed at all.

    Here's the thread for reference!
