    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:


  2. 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!


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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.

    And this is the real deal, and not some extension of the April Fool's announcement that everyone took to be a prank?

    Bill, if it was part of the prank, why would they be doing it in late May? It's for real. ;)

    Because back on April Fool's Day this was announced. Then it was mentioned that it was a prank. Now we are getting notices that it is happening again.

    The point I am making is the boy who cried wolf. He did it so many times that when it was the real deal, nobody believed him. So I am asking, straight up, what the real deal is. That's all.
