BowlingChat Upgrade to PHP 8.0 / phpBB 3.3 - *COMPLETED*

Community members,

Just a heads up, I've started preparing for the next upgrade.
It's much more simple than the last one a few years ago.
I'm targeting August 27th for the upgrade, the forum will be unavailable until the upgrade is complete.
I suspect it will be a few hours.

Side note: I may have fixed a major issue with the forum yesterday.
The website hasnt been running quite right for quite some time and I observed some things that narrowed it down to the webserver having issues.
They rejected the notion of a reboot, so, I asked the service provider to switch us to a different webserver, after that happened last night, everything seems fast again with no issues.
Please let me know if you notice a difference.

The forum is back online and we are in a good place for the future. The forum is running on the superfast PHP 8.1. The wiki will be upgraded once MediaWiki is approved for PHP8. Thank you for your patience and enjoy.
