It would be so much smoother a transition if the active threads in this, the old LC, could be locked, moved to the new LC, and then re-activated.

I know, but think of the man-hours that would take?

Why don't we just resolve to create no new threads on this forum, and only reply to existing threads here. ANy new threads could be opened over there.

I wish it were easier on us, but I don't know if it's possible to do an information transfer. :(

this forum will still be available in read-only, so we can post links still, and have new comments on those same topics stay in the new forum.

I actually ported an Invisionfree board to PHPBB2 and told the admin about it but it doesn't look like they will implement it. I already have the database that they could copy over too. Not sure if they had to move the board out of the US and there may have been a charge for the backup of data that could have been charged by the megabyte.

It would have copied over all user accounts posts and PM's.

Please post a link to it. Thanks.

Am i missing something here?

As far as i can see, the people who run InvisionFree are the same people who now run Zetaboards and they offer a free conversion from one software to the other.

Here is the announcement at InvisionFree:

We believe that the beta of our new ZetaBoards software has reached sufficient quality to begin transitioning this forum to ZetaBoards. Starting soon, we will shut down the support section only and transfer it to a new ZetaBoards forum. You can go there to get all the same InvisionFree support; it will be just like this forum, but running on our new ZetaBoards software for ease of use and ease of moderation.


And here is the one at Zetaboards:

http://support.zetaboards.com/topic/42858/1/#new

QUOTE
InvisionFree boards may now opt into the conversion from their Admin CP (click on the "Convert to ZetaBoards" menu option).
We will ramp up the pace of conversions of boards over the next few days. As soon as we have a good feel for how many boards are opting into the conversion and how long the converter will take for them, we will post a timeline for how long a conversion will take from the time you opt-in.
You do not need to opt into the conversion right now, you can make the decision at any time.


Why don't you simply use their conversion offer?

Hmmm, very interesting. Dylan is the only one that can do it though, root admins only.

I would like a copy of the old site... it contains much more than we think. how much $$ for a copy..

6,600 or so entries is that correct.... NO... if you hit search and *.* it should show everything .. so, I wonder how many DVD's the old site has in its data store?

or just link it to the new site under "Old Site Archive" just allow search engine scans and read only.

yeah, time to package the old site and sell it like you do the videos

there are many who would find our discourse both informative and entertaining and jump in :)
