I’ve just finished moving over the rest of the Users / Forums / Threads and Posts!
A lot of stuff has been removed for various reasons (incompatibility or unsafe); However, all forums, threads and posts have been moved over along with all the registered users.
Spambots were programmatically removed during the process. Needless to say, there were about 80,000 spambots.. !YIKES!
We may be able to re-write some of the bbCode so that it renders properly once more, but that’s for another day.
First, I’d like to focus on any immediate bugs, if there are any.
If you do notice a problem, please let me know at: email@example.com
You must change your password before you can login: That can be done HERE
Stop back by the forums HERE!
P.s. As mentioned before, the site layout and design is Marshalls thing. So, stay tuned for even more awesomeness!
Please be patient while we migrate all of our historical data.
We’ve upgraded the software on the site for many reasons. The spambots became so annoying that people would be tempted to stay away.
I’ve moved over all of the user accounts; You’ll simply have to change your password HERE
This sort of move takes a bit more time because there is NO software out there designed for this move; So I have to write it myself. I’ve 3/4 of the entire move finished. The remaining fourth will be to move the threads and posts. This is much easier said than done because the two bits of software that we are migrating between, have VERY different structures. Not to mention, in previous moves it was just “one on top of the other” sort of thing. It really added up and now is the time to ensure we clean it up so that things run a lot smoother.
After all is said and done, the server resources (CPU / RAM / Hard Disks) will be freed up once more and the site will, essentially be, brand new. (With exception of historical content and members of course )
Marshall will be doing the design because, well, he’s the boss at it! Not to mention, it’s his site
I just picked something simple at the time of this post, so certainly expect things to change a lot in that fashion as well
