Well, that then depends on what your definition of "is" is...
We will be here for April 1 2012...
It's the April Fool's Day joke that keeps on giving
And will never die!!!
I'm already looking forward to falling for it again next year...

Sorry to disappoint everyone, but there will be no April Fool's joke this year.
I have just received word from IGN that they are ready to begin migrating our forums. We are currently discussing a date for the move, but expect it be sometime in the next few weeks. I will keep you all updated on the details as I get them.
Be sure to keep an eye on this thread, or better yet subscribe to our facebook page and/or our Twitter account.
Exactly what someone getting to ready to spring the final part of a 2 year long April Fool's Day joke would say.
2012! The Mayans were right! Long has this been foretold, the end is nigh!
Finally. A reason to start giving a crap about Failbook. "Liked," as it were.
Jack is excited/pumped up by this news.
Los Angeles Lakers: Drama, guaranteed.
What will happen to existing icons?
But... but messa no Have Facebook or Twitter...
The icons should be OK. They are already stored on the TFN server, not on IGN's. Banner images are stored on the same server. We will probably have to redo the banner styles to make them work on the new boards so you might not see them on Day 1.
Daft-Vader - I'm the same. However I just checked and you can still view both the Twitter and Facebook page without having to log in.
Oh, thats good then
In fact, I recommend following both of the links in Grimby's post and bookmarking/adding to Favorites the pages so you can find them once we shut down for the move. (I've already done that.)
So have you guys made a decision in regards to the VBulletin/XenForo choice?
If everything is being transferred, do we get new account passwords?
What happens to secondary accounts? I have a sock I rarely use.
All IDs and passwords should transfer as is. However, if you've forgotten the password to your sock you should be able to request a 'forgotten password' mail after the move.
It'll be XenForo, by default. That's what IGN's moving to, and that's what they'll move us to as well.
Even those icons that were not uploaded?
The ones not uploaded will still be where the makers uploaded them. I'm sure NYCitygurl will save off any that are being voted on at the time.
Is "sometime in the next few weeks" anything like "soon" was two years ago?
So, what will be the actual differences, after the move?
It'll probably look like a cross between this and this, at least at first.
Will i be able to upload any icon i want?
