The Big Move, phpBB --> VBulletin

Postby Verdant » Thu Apr 16, 2009 5:14 pm

So after a lot of consideration, these forums will be switching from phpBB to VBulletin format due to a whole host of factors I won't bore you with. Most of the changes won't affect users, but are quite helpful for overall board maintenance. The upshot is that graphic signatures will once again become available (within moderation). However, this might take a while, since I want to make sure that all posts are preserved in the conversion. If all goes well, the new version of the boards will go live sometime this summer, if not earlier :).

Cool and don't worry Tommy I won't use one of My more evil signatures. And this change sounds pretty SQL free :D

Well new carpet for starters and definitely a change in wallpaper. Perhaps a couple of rugs and bean bag chairs to boot :P

Perhaps we should burn it in effigy. Or maybe perform some form of exorcism.

I'll supply candles and a pentagram, this exorcism must be effective. And with no SQL our posts shall no longer have to wait in fear.

What we really need is to eradicate dead threads that were never finished and perhaps restrain ourselves in our posting, not cram the boards with every RP that comes into our heads

Just going to put it out there: I've put out instructional steps to avoiding it and I have put out steps to ensuring that if indeed you were plagued, no one would know. Sort of like having a pimple and applying concealer... -shrugs-

One issue with conversion is the loss of private messages. If you have a ton that you want to keep for posterity, it would be a good idea to start saving them to your hard drive now rather than later.

Another serious issue I've come across in discussions of board conversion is PMs getting placed in the wrong account. This doesn't seem to happen across the board, but it would be a good thing for everyone to empty their private message folders prior to the move.
