    So wait, how does this even work? Does the whole site just shut down at midnight board time? Eastern standard (US)? Something else?

    Do the new (temporary) boards open up immediately? Next week?

    What is going on.

    Yeah, about mid-morning board time, the boards will be pointed to the new server. People will get the message about the temp board probably at different times.

    Hot damn, something I can explain!

    So the temp boards are actually already up. That's how DAVEEEEEEED and Kate are able to pre-register folks at their request.

    What's going to happen is that, sometime tomorrow morning, the DNS is going to be redirected to point at our already prepared "The Boards are down but the temp boards are at this location" screen. During this time the boards proper will stay up, to accomodate the fact that it can take up to 24 hours for your ISP to see the DNS switch - some folks will still be seeing the boards proper as late as Thursday morning.

    After that 24 hour period, the boards will be taken down and the transfer will begin. During that time we'll be farting around on the temp boards. Eventually the boards proper will be back up, MS will take a bit of time to make sure everything's good to go, and the DNS will be redirected AGAIN to point BACK to the boards proper, which will be in shiny new Xenforo form.

    The entire process could take anywhere from 1-2 weeks.

    Anyone want to place bets on how long we'll be at the temp board?

    I'm saying seven months. :p

    Sorry Harps, didn't notice you'd already started a guessing game on the date the new boards will arrive. :(

    I was lurking on the boards back when users had "Padawan," "Jedi Knight" and "Jedi Master" under their user names in order to indicate seniority. I have no idea who the host was then or how long the move took. All you pessimists are making me nervous though. :p

    I do wonder if the new hosts make pizza runs when the boards are down. If they're cooler, they'll make latte runs instead...

    It was UBB, and it was apparently awful. Or at least, that's what everybody complained about around the time I registered.

    So, links between pages. Went into the profile of a player today, and found s link to a game I was in, back in 2005, the Stormtrooper Academy.

    Intra-board links, I expect, a lot of those that we have put into posts and profiles are going to be a nightmare...

    I love reading my old stuff, seeing what I was like back then, but finding it now, as we are facing the Final Jump? Its like three days ago, I found out for the first time, that I could put a picture into a PM!

    The irony.
