Good news is it's on 40% now - so we're 10% higher than my last update

I am sure it will be done by Christmas Azz

As long as all my posts get transferred, it'll be ok. Would be a shame if not.

At the time of posting this, the temp section has 989 posts. Not bad for a relatively quiet time on here while posters are naturally holding back their big thoughts for the day.

Think you'll find that even if the board comes back blank, we'll be able to fill it with all sorts of garbage pretty quickly. A bit like leaving an uncovered waste skip outside one's house overnight

Azz - quick question. I know this current site will be archived for a bit. Will there be a way of members accessing it to recover anything which doesn't make it across? Not sure what (other that maybe photos, but there may be some other stuff lurking away?)

That's the idea yes - if anyone has any photos in their profile albums, or in any threads they can simply copy them from here and repost them on the new forum (unfortunately photos in profile albums won't be getting copied over as the new forum does not have profile albums and attachments uploaded to threads probably won't make it either).

Keep in mind the original goal was to simply copy over everyone's accounts (and email addresses - so they can get a new password sent to access the new forum). Hopefully we'll be able to get all of your threads and posts over too tho (even if we just keep them in a members only section as an 'archive').

Thanks Azz. Could ask a whole load of other questions, but am sure it'll all become clear once the process is complete.

Keep that kettle full. You're going to need loads of coffee!!
