Portal-Wide Forum Migration

Hey everyone!

Over the course of the week we're going to be migrating over our forums to Vanilla. This process will involve transitioning over our data from all of our old forums. We'll be periodically rolling out each of the forums into Vanilla once the data is moved over and properly sorted. We appreciate your patience as we go through the upgrade process.

    Could you put STO in your thread titles so folks would at least have in inkling as to where to look?

    They can't create the subforums until the import is complete. Having a version here that is being posted in, and a version being imported, would probably be a technical nightmare to reconcile, and seriously complicate the process. I'm thinking it's faster and less prone to explode this way.

    Migration requires data movement, compiling it into readable formats, adjusting flux capacitors, restructuring the old data hierarchy for forums into the new Vanilla ARC forums.. a bunch of wibbly wobbly forum worum stuff.

    Yeah, and so is the four-letter version of "urinate." I found that one out myself...whoops.

    So, will posting and stuff be easier that it was before? This new format.... It's so confusing.... So many buttons...

    To each their own really. There are some new options including animated avatars and signatures (course this also depends on what community you came from), which will pretty much be the running theme lol.

    In my opinion? It's good. Better than vb3x, but not great.

    Just use BBCode ([/ color]), taking the space out between "color" and the =, then the other space between the / and "color" - HTML code isn't going to be activated due to potential for exploits.

    OH, and ew... they broke multi-quoting. >.>

    So do we have a Star Trek Forum or is that still coming? I only ask because there is not one Star Trek thread that I can see on my screen at the new set up. I'm totally lost here. :(

    Edit - Oh wait. I see Trendy's post now. I've booked marked this thread. I'll keep checking back to it until everything settles down.
    We now return you to your regularly scheduled internet.

    The above post is correct. Right now, they're in the process of dumping the information from the old forums so that they can be migrated over to the Vanilla forums. There is no estimated time for how long it's going to take, so be patient. :)

    Use this link to get rid of the laggy arc shell they surrounded this with on the arcpage. Still a little laggier than the superior vBulletin we were using, but oh well.

    Now, someone give me the ability to disable animated gifs, please! Too distracting.

    Also, invites for Neverwinter Alpha Stronghold PVP testing are out guys :P

    I presume that not all of the threads will be making the transition from STO... :smiley:

    It is at least possible to disable all signatures, in your profile. If you don't want to do that, and you have an extension/add-on on your browser that you trust, like an ad blocker or image blocker, it may be possible to block individual images.
    Any ETA on when it should be complete? :)

    Within the week, though I suspect about 2 days or so. Can't be sure of that since I'm not the one watching the little progress bar. ;)
