Phil Posted September 6, 2021 Share Posted September 6, 2021 So this is the new forum. I'm posting this because we're doing some final checks tonight and giving you all access in the morning. Regarding Post Counts: You're going to notice a few things right away outside of the new platform in general. The first is clearly your post counts, which are way less than they were before. There's a reason for this. We were missing about ten months of data but just recently recovered it (go us). This created problems with post counts, which we are trying to resolve. Additionally, post counts will likely never match the old totals. The reasons for this are technical, and not worth going into publicly. Don't Remember Your Email to Log In? Too bad, so sad. Kidding. Contact me using the Contact Us form at the bottom of the site and I will look up your account directly to let you know what your registration email was. I can also manually change your password, if need be. Miscellaneous Some of you may not have your avatars. Just re-upload them (or a new one). Your profile user fields might also be blank. Just input new data (if you even care). I'm sure there are other things we just haven't noticed yet. If there are specific things you notice — problems, missing data, whatever — use this thread to notify myself and the Staff, as we'll be working continuously over the next little while to attempt at recovering the lost data, as well as addressing these smaller issues. Going Forward We'll also be posting notices within this section to give you guys updates on new features as we continue to add them. One pro tip I can give you all: mark all the forums as read. This will allow your activity streams to start fresh so that new posts that are actually new posts are the only things entering it. We know change can be stressful. It's going to take a while for all of us to get used to this new platform, but I still firmly believe this is the right call for us, the loss of ten months of posts and topics notwithstanding. Also, first mother fucker that says some shit about how long this took is gettin' shot. Believe that. 6 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
