    I expect this will go off without a single problem, bug, or glitch.

    Will the TOS be the same on the temp boards? ISP's and all that.

    I'm just going to announce in advance that whatever SLG is present on the temporary boards, it's an evil SLG from another dimension. It will not be I. Do not trust it. Don't take anything from it. Don't look it in the eye.

    So you'll be the same as always?

    Yes, the TOS will be the same, whatever "ISP's and all that" means. The boards are still Wise's, after all.

    I realize the move to Xeno is relatively new, but given that IGN's bbcode for some things (links, images) isn't quite the same as others,should we prepare ourselves for the possibility of some broken posts?

    Also, will staff still have their unique colors? I haven't bothered to learn half of their names. I just call them by color scheme instead.

    Given the accelerated schedule of this move, it's unlikely that we'll have any frills. Simple markups should work fine, I can't imagine xenforo using a completely different markup for bold, but things like the color or highlight tags might well be different. We had stuff set up for that when we were planning to move to vB, but all that's gone now.

    That said, IGN may give us some of their customizations that they've worked on along with the data import, so it's possible we'll be partway there. But in terms of making the new boards work the same way as our current boards, that'll be a work in progress after we move. The main concern is getting all the data across (users, posts, etc.)

    Given the advanced age of the JC and its overall activity level these days, thinking of this as a move to a retirement home may be accurate.

    To be fair, the timeframe from "Oh, just kidding, it's actually going to be Xenforo" to "Oh, incidentally, we're moving within the month" was something like one and a half months. We lost a ton of preparatory work.

    Like Dave and Ramza said, because we had to settle for XenForo, any and all customizations we've created went byebye. That's right in the first post. :p

    I'll assume the funny is because you confused the word "accelerated" (governing a change in velocity) with "quick" (governing a rate of displacement). They're commonly confused by people who don't know English, yes. So LULZ WE TUK TOO YERS.

    ^ Lol.

    Anyway love the new info bar at the top. You'd think it would mention the temporary board though.

    Do Mods fold up like transformers for easier packing?
