The forum is switching Software

Post  Aquarium Co-Op on 2014-09-03, 17:05

Hi everyone,

It's been talked about for almost a year now. I'm finally pulling the trigger on a forum move. What this means is this forum will still be www.wafishbox.com as always after the move. We'll retain all the posts etc. What will change is the software being used to run it. This will allow us much more customization and not have to pay for features etc.

During the time in which the forum switch is going on, there will be a period of about 12 hours where no posts can be made and no one can register. This forum will remain up as wafishbox.forumotion.com This is where you'll want to come while the new forum is being populated with posts from this forum.

Once the port over is complete, you'll receive a PM (Private Message) on this forum here that contains your password for the new forum. This is because no one has access to your passwords besides you. So we have to assign you a new password during the transition and you can change your password once over there.

If there are any questions post em here and I'll try to answer them. We are aiming for as smooth as a transition as possible. But there can always be things that come up unforeseen.

I'm hoping the process will start today or tomorrow, haven't confirmed with the person I'm working with yet.

I've been notified he can start working on it a bit early so this forum will be upgrading to phpbb3 so he can start exporting data. So if things look different forum style wise this is why.

Don't worry, he's okay... he's okay... take a look in your tank, he's still there right? He's okay... he's okay.

Very Happy
