Time to Move!

[The Great Fence Builder Speaks]

The boards will be going offline on Friday 3/7 at 10:00 am Pacific so that we can convert them to the new, permanent, more reliable location. We will be bringing them back online in the new location at 10:00 am Pacific on Saturday.

Some things you should know:


1. The new boards will be running an open source software package called phpBB (phpBB.com)
2. The conversion from bbBoard to phpBB will not be perfect. Your account will be transferred, but your avatar and signatures will not.
3. phpBB only supports 1 signature, so you will have to pick your favorite to add to the new system.
4. Neil was kind enough to write a WHISPER tag for us, so all the existing whispers should continue to be hidden.



When the conversion is complete, you will receive an email with information about where to go to log in. Because your password will not be transferred, you will have to request a new one from the new system.

During the conversion period, this forum will be in maintenance mode. That means, essentially, that it'll be offline. When the conversion is complete, we'll bring the forums here up, for a few reasons:

* This thread will be used if you have trouble logging into the new system.
* Having the forums up allows us to easily compare the new to the old to see if there's a problem
* Should we need to copy anything from here, it's easier to do with the forums active.



Note, though, that anything you post here after the conversion will not be transferred to the new system.

In addition, we'll create a "Bugs" thread on the new forum, where you can tell us all the things we got wrong.

If you have any questions, now's the time to ask.

Re: Time to Move!

As long as the accounts transfer with little to no effort on members' parts, shouldn't be many problems. Probably have this thing back up and running in 10 minutes or less.
Finally... some better interface in this place.
8 hours to go as of now.
See ya on the other side!

Edit on the next day: Eh? It's not here yet. :ohwell:
