    It'll be merged into Lit once we move. A lot of people don't know about it. Few people use it. There's no good reason to keep it separate from Lit at this point.

    This way we can venerate authors we love and razz out authors we hateout in the open and not in a secluded area anymore!

    Sounds good to me. There were only a few non-locked threads right before the Move, and the only authors/artists that still posted there were John Ostrander, Jan Duursema and Matt Stover, IIRC, and only usually when someone asked them a question.

    Is there really a new board coming. Just wondering. I am kinda not pleased with losing all my posts.... 300....
  6. JediMatteus Jedi Master

    When the new boards finally arrive (lol), these temp boards will be locked. You will still be able to read the posts, but you may not have access to your temp username. So if you have any important PMs here, you might want to back them up.

    Your username on the new boards will be the same as the one on the old boards, not your current (temp) username. Unless you decide to reregister with a new username.

    Will there be custom avatars on the new boards?

    And can we please use Otter Love as the inaugural banner?
  9. CooperTFN Jedi Grand Master

    It's the same system as this board - anything you can do here you can do there.

    Will our icons from the old boards transfer over?

    No, they will not. You'll have to change it manually.

    Will we still be able to access the collection of icons that were on the old board? The (mostly) SW ones, I mean.
  13. Barriss_Coffee Retired Sith Lord

    I don't believe so, but @NYCitygurl was thinking about bringing back icon creators last time I heard.

    Thanks for the tag, Barriss!

    The deal with icons: Everything that's allowed here (custom icons, bigger size, anything you want) will apply on the old boards. The old icons gallery is not automatically transferred because Xenforo doesn't have the gallery built in. I'd like to get a gallery of the old ones up, but they'll be too small; my plan is to enlist people who are willing to redo the icons and make them bigger. I'd also like to set a gallery where people who want to share their icons can load them for people who might want to use them (though most people don't seem to have trouble finding and uploading images).

    Thanks for the info. That means I will have manually create my old Ackbar icon, which is fine. At least now I can prepare!

    Manually create? Just use the pic of ye olde 19th century Ackbar that I took for you. :p
