    Yeah, can someone explain to me why I need a special PIN from ARC EVERY SINGLE time I try to log into this new Forum? Because if that's going to be a constant requirement now, then I think I'll just start using the Reddit group for STO.

    It seems to me only some users are being affected by this--not sure why.

    Me--I have that problem with the STO Gateway, as opposed to the forum. :/

    Yes the forums seem to have different problems for different users.

    Right. I guess I'll give it the week to sort out. After all, there is a large pile of data coming over. If it keeps up AFTER the migration is over... then I'll start to get annoyed.

    I don't see any PIN problems so far. Signature works and all the other active features as well. Any word if we'll have badges active later?

    Well if they are doing according to the Vanilla Porter instructions then no data is coming over yet..

    Large forums

    Forums with over 1 million posts may take a long time to migrate on low-budget hosting plans and cause intense resource usage or downtime while it runs. Forums with over 10 million posts make take a very long time & cause strain on any hosting plan.

    For advanced users in these circumstances, copy your database to a localhost installation and run the Porter via the command line. See the Vanilla Porter repository and README for more information. We likewise recommend importing to a localhost copy of Vanilla and running your verification & finalization steps locally, and repeating the Default Roles step after copying the database to production.

    Hmm. Well Iguess this will take some getting used to and I hope the migration works out for everyone but if this is supposed to be a modern system I don't think I should have to learn html coding to change things. Hopefully they will be added in the very near future.

    Also I don't know if anyone has already said this but when changing pages the page numbers at the bottom of the page take you to the bottom of the next page not back to the top, can this be looked at and put right???

    But most of all good luck :smiley:

    @pwlaughingtrendy The best course of action would to have archived the old forums for now, and implement the new forum structure. Leave links for the archived forums. It's what other studios have done, and aside from a few complaints, it's gone by smoothly. On top of that, it would have been FAR less work for you, leaving you free to work on other projects, or to smooth out the wrinkles from the transition.

    Well technically if they paid enough Vanilla forums would do the migration for them as part of the package unless they wanted to do it themselves it really isn't that labor intensive according to the documentation provided by vanillaforums. Basically a few command line instructions hit enter then wait for the process to complete. Then some local testing, then an upload that should take forever. then some more testing.

    Doesn't seem to be a limit, unless it's 5 seconds.

    There are many possible causes to that. I have it everytime I log into arc or the Gateway. My guess is because I'm on a laptop.

    Hoping somebody makes a stylish mod for the new STO forums, this place looks like one big grey headache.

    I know, right? Went looking for the STO forums, wandered into a back alley production of Fifty Shades of Bland, Boring Grey.

    Blech. Just...Blech.

    This is the New Sarcasm Color for the new Forums!

    WTH... that is a lot of work for that color
