    Well, I'll be. It's like really going to happen. I was begining to think otherwise. :p

    That reminds me. I have to check the date I guessed for this.

    So, will there be any visual differences between this site and the temp site and the temp site from the new site, or is all the format going to remain the same?

    How the temporary boards will be is still not completely hammered out yet (we're working on it) but they will be different. Every single forum will not be here -there's no reason for it for just a short time- but there will be a place for different groups to hang out. (And hopefully a chance for people to mingle with people from other parts of the boards! :) )


    The new boards will look a little different and work a little different but we are doing our best to make them as familiar as possible.

    Hmmmm, we're only supposed to be on the temporary boards for a short time......we have been 'getting ready' to move for almost two years, too.[face_thinking]

    Why don't we have a 'one-post' story challenge for the temporary boards? Do a bunch of quickies? Maybe with a topic of moving? ;)

    I hope we can get rid of these old socks on the new boards.

    We've been working on something very close to that for the temp board. :)

    Just out of idle curiosity, will the new (permanent) boards have the same autolock feature for threads that have gone X amount of time without a reply?

    And will the Fanfic boards still have unlimited edit time?

    I guess I could just wait and see, too... :p

    I hope the new boards have unlimted edit time....i always edit my first post's title to say when the fanfic has been updated.

    I just hope all the in progress fanfics will be there when the boards reopen...cause I don't currently have a good backup of my in progress fanfic. [face_blush]

    I've been afraid were going to lose everything, so I stopped writing about a month or so ago. :p

    Here's hoping.

    We should be able to delete our Private Messages.
    And add Chinese character support.

    No kidding. ;) There are a lot of features on the new boards that are quite an upgrade.

    Is there a real text editor? That would be AMAZING.

    There are all kinds of exciting new things we can do; Mass PM's as mentioned (though it is limited to 10 at a time, IIRC), you can indent your paragraphs, use bullets if you are so inclined... just all sorts of fun things! :)


    It was a little sad how happily your mods were sending mass PM's to each other when it was discovered! :p

    Have been sneaking to the boards all day, for "one more look" at our format. That one more look turned into... a lot.

    We've been told depending on a few things, the old boards might go down faster for some than others (location, internet host, etc.)so if you can still see these old IGN boards, don't worry, the move is happening. You just get a little longer to see our old home. :)

    So, am I the only one who squealed in delight when reading the words 'indent paragraphs'?[face_dancing] And Mass PMs![face_dancing]

    Well, that was fun. Anyone else feeling completely out of sync with life now?
