    IGN is no longer able to support our boards, so the JC Boards and FanForce will be moving very soon.

    The boards may be down for a short duration of time, as we now will have to transfer everything from IGN to a new vBulletin system. We had a test run on this type of boards back in 2005, so we already have some knowledge of it.


    The URL of the boards will stay the same, but the page URLs for individual boards will probably be changing, which could make linking to pages or old threads rather complicated.


    We don't know the time frame just yet, but it'll be happening sooner rather than later.



    For more information, or if you have any questions, check out the Move Thread in our Communications forum.

    So the time has come. IGN will no longer be able to support the boards, so we have to move the whole FanForce/Jedi Council forum system. If you haven't seen the announcement on top of the forum, here are some points you should be aware of:


  3. In order to ensure you can still log into your account after the move, please make sure you have an active private email address in your profile. If you don't, you may be locked out of your account after the move!


  4. The boards will still be on boards.theforce.net, but instead of being hosted by IGN, we will be hosted on a new server on TFN.


  5. We are doing everything we can to make sure nothing is lost in the move. However, we can't guarantee anything. At the very least, we hope users, posts, forums, and private messages all transfer. But just in case, if there's any threads you want to save, DO SO NOW. One of the managers, DarthXan, created a thread backup program, which you can find HERE.


  6. For more information read the FAQ

    Also it should be noted that IGN has done the first test with the data export, so the move should occur as soon as the new forums are ready for it.
