What Happened to the old board?


Kentucky Surfer:
And will the posts from the old board be archived for reference?

The old board is going away. It's remotely hosted, and they basically lock you out of your database, so you can't convert to a new board. They do that in order to keep generating advertising dollars off your board.

There are complicated bots that can grab the data (pretty much illegally) . . . but the process is buggy, and not everything comes through.

We've upgraded to a better, more user-friendly system (SMF) that's now hosted on our own server (as opposed to remote). This gives us control of the database, etc.

The old board will remain around for a while, to steer people to this new forum, but it will eventually be deleted.

We'll rebuild the community here . . . streamlined and more accessible.

Been planning to do this for a while, and with the pending release of Carnival of Sound it's a good time to make the switch.

Whenever I try to read the old board I end up here (with no possibility to read old posts).
