    Just a note for those who also visit our sister site Rebelscum - they are also moving and members should verify their email address on that site. See this thread posted by Philip Wise.

    Chances are their move will happen sooner than ours as they have been having security issues, and they have less stuff to move than us.

    Graham from rebelscum has posted an update on their move:

    8/31 Update
    We decided to do one more pass then we'll probably open the forums up as a demo so you guys can help find any problems. Won't be long now...


    You can keep up with their news here.

    And if you are a registered user and you haven't verified your email address there, now is the time..

    The Rebelscum demo forums are now up. You can get the link here in their New Forum thread. If you have a login you can try posting, etc. If you encounter problems please report them in the linked thread, not here, as their admins won't see them here. If it's a display or login issue, please let them know what browser/version you are using.

    Good news... I'm not on Rebelscum, but from the recent posts in the Moving thread, this makes it sound like our move may be happening sometime relatively soon.

    I've never visited RebelScum, but if this means our move is closer to reality then I am happy for everyone there.

    We're currently on pace to be completely moved by April first 2015, to coincide with pre-Rots 10th anniversary celebrations. :)

    I like the tweets. Months of work all culminating into the final moving process.

    Can't wait 'till the JCF is at this point.

    And they are back!

    It's with great pleasure that we announce the grand re-opening of the Rebelscum forums! Members can use either their screen name or registered email address along with their current password to log in. We hope you enjoy.

    You can check them out here.

    Just a note - I had to delete all cookies associated with 'threads.rebelscum.com' in order to get there. Also, quite a few of the avatars didn't make the move and mine was one. However, I did manage to find a Fett I could live with. So if you have an ID there you might have to get a new avatar.

    We'll be next but I don't know how much they have left to do for us. I'm sure they will be letting Rebelscum bed in for a bit to make sure everything is OK (and to let Grahame catch up on sleep!).

    It's been about a week - have they mentioned when they'll start working on our move?
