As was mentioned in this post, Al has been considering moving off of Forumer, and this week we are going to be moving forward with this forum migration.  Here's what's all happening on so nobody gets left out of the loop.


As some of you already know, I have successfully copied our forum's posts into a phpBB forum, as seen here.  Right now, that link is pointing to a copy of these forums on my own personal web domain.  If Al is successful in figuring out a way to include the forums in with his Wordpress blog, then the forums will move there, and will be taken down from my hosting.  Otherwise, they will remain on my domain until we figure out a more permanent solution.


Secondly, I would like everyone who is still active here to register an account on the new forums.  Even though we arern't using them quite yet, having everyone registered already will make the merger a smooth process, and we hopefully won't have to hunt down as many people to let them know we have moved.  And the nice thing about a phpBB forum is, the entire forum is stored in a database, so even if it moves again in the future, the database goes with it.  This means that your login credentials will stay the same no matter where it moves to.  All in all, it will make things much easier on us in the long run.


Anyways, that should be everything.  If anyone has any questions at all regarding this migration, please don't hesitate to ask either Al or myself.  Thanks everyone.

I was able to link Steven's work to my Wix site. I think this will be really good for people to use. Also, it'll be easier to promote the forum if it's attached the website.

The new forum WILL be a go once all of the active members have registered there. Once everyone is registered, Steven will run his script one more time to capture all of the latest posts and then post in this thread to let everyone know we're going to the new forum. Here is the link (the one above that Steven posted will still work as well): http://www.iongamecorner.com/#!forum/c21nl

You will also be able to get it from the Forum link at the top of iongamecorner.com.

The following people still need to register:
Chibi Pika
Zero17
Gambit

I am leaving this Forumer account open. I'm not sure how long it will stay open if the forums have no activity, but I'll leave it here for people to grab any info from PMs they might need.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

And to add to this, I want every user to make a reply in this thread: http://stevenwalders.com/iongc/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=142

This will confirm two things: that everyone has confirmed they are aware of us moving, and to test to make sure everyone is able to post on the new forums without any issues.  If for whatever reason you're unable to post in that thread, let either Al or me know and I will look into the matter.  I want to ensure everything is working for everyone before we move.
