    You mean currently, as in pre-move, right? I believe it's a homegrown IGN platform. As stated above, after the move it's XenForo.

    Yeah, current boards are IGN's own system. It's a mix of .aspx and javascript code. New boards will be Xenforo.

    If you can read this message, it means we haven't moved yet.

    Strange day for an April Fools though.

    Well Grimby did say it would be more towards the middle of the day. Though I can see them waiting until about 7 pm and then go "Happy early April Fools!"

    It's way past 'middle of the day' where I live, but I see what you mean. :p

    Would it help if I got out and pushed?

    It'll be middle of the day in reference to board time. All you people who live in the future on the other side of the globe will just have to set your clocks back 12 hours...

    Five more hours and counting....
    But still, I'm calling it that they are having trouble uploading the user names. Everyone's account will be destroyed. That's why they didn't shut down the forum yet.

    2 hours and 6 minutes and counting.

    So it is noon board time.

    That would be 3 pm my time.

    Should we start spamming the boards to pump up our post counts yet? :p

    11 hours here in the UK. Our clocks go forward this Sunday. Yours went forward almost two weeks ago.

    So GARTH MAUL over in LACWAC is saying the move will probably be tomorrow now, due to circumstances beyond the mod's control. Is this in fact the case? I mean, we were all excited for it to happen today. :confused:

    Not exactly. The boards are still being switched off today and we will switch over to using the temp board. IGN will not begin the actual data migration process until tomorrow.

    Edit: It's possible some people may not be redirected away from here until Thursday morning (board time), but that won't be the case for everyone.

    Ah, ok. His wording was a little misleading, is all.

    UPDATE:
    Expect the boards to go down around 5pm or 6pm (board time) tonight - about 5-6 hours from now. Philip says there will be a minimal amount of downtime and then boards.theforce.net should point to the temp boards.

    I'm intrigued enough to log on again at about midnight, I think.

    Although, I say that now at 7.37pm. :p

    I'll take a pass on that. I'm going to go curl up with a SW book and an adult beverage or two before bed. Good luck!
