Well guys we finally making the move to the new forums. These forums are no longer hosted by invisionboard. I would like to apologize to those who had worked so hard and were so proud of their post count just to have it reset on them. We do notice those who are really active on our forums *looks at ninboy* and will definitely remember that. In local's post he points out all the pros and cons and does a great job at it so make sure to check out his post. I hope to see EVERYONE from our other forums move to our new permanent forums. I hope you guys enjoy our new home and would love to hear some feedback!! Also yes the banner will switch over to the real banner soon enough don't worry.

Yay were home!

*The move is official on Oct. 30th*

Awesome.

These forums look very slick, should look better when you change the theme for each marathon as well...
Noooo! My post count! Oh well, nothing compared to Ninboy, heh heh heh.

Local, I don't know if this forum offers it, but others allow admins to manually set the post count for users. You could add the current count from the other forum, but it isn't really necessary.


Anyway, I love the new forum.

No, I suppose not, but I am just tossing it out there that it is possible to carry over if desired, although it would be rather tedious.

Ooh, very nice indeed. I can't wait for the others to make the jump over and get settled in.

Woo hoo! Glad to have a new and cooler forum. I was more proud of my member number instead of my post count, but I prefer having this cool new forum.

Gwellin

Ya, member numbers don't much mean anything on this forum. Local got 2, the Britt (TheSpeedGamers) got 53. It's because of some bot features of this forum software, and is stupid.

It honestly is kinda annoying losing post count and join date/member number. I think something should be done.

well i know you can backup members/posts counts/threads and transfer them
but it depends on the host site of the forum

Gwellin
10-01-2008, 05:58 PM
Ya, and Invision Boards require you to pay for this backup. It was decided against.

I know some people are probably sad that they lost their post cound, especially when it was over 9000! But seiously, I don't care about the post count. I'm glad Local is putting so much work into the forums. Keep up the good work!

do a mini marathon to raise money to buy a back up
or even all the forum members chip in a buck or something

For whatever reason, I'm the same way. I read it as A New Hope and think of Star Wars.

Well, you're going to be awfully lonely at the old board at the end of the month.

Wait, your parents actually did that to you? What did you do to them?

But it hasn't crashed since, and we still have the stress test coming. I really believe that someone else on Local's shared hosting server got spammed or DoS'd, which took down everyone on the same server.

Actually chase it crashed when there was only 4 people on, but before during the day it was fine with 12 people on. That is why it was so odd.
