    What will be lost ? like i said in the original post this board will be still accessible albeit read only. we either deal with the oncoming problem now with eyes wide open or wait for the big bang and deal with a bigger issue then.

    as for migration - mate not a chance, in short the migration has gone from one to another and i dont think that was 100% clean.
    as such i am guessing there is quite a lot of legacy guff in the DB and tables and looking at the issues others have had porting out to either phpbb or vbulletin seems to have been a pretty torrid affair with limited success and lots of problems after.
    trying to just download the database is a none starter - its over 3gb. the speed it moves over my 100mb pipe aint exactly quick before it times out or once it does land wont open on a PC due to corruption and on a MAC it opens - just.

    I have done a few migrations between phpbb, vbulletin and evne snitz and a couple of others over the years and regardless of the converter used or care in cleaning up there is always a gotcha somewhere down the line be it in performance or mysql errors
    I really aint a sql developer and my skills are limited in regard to coding, db dev and php stuff. Honestly with the best of intention i am not making a rod for my own back with this or getting dragged into something i spend far too much of my time maintaining when a clean vanilla board using a tried and tested and popular format will be a piece of piss to support and maintain so perhaps i can enjoy some summer on my bike and not nursing some sick board.

    nothing, so am i, and i aint spending hours of my time trying to code something that may or may not even work.
    i have no problem getting it up and running with the essentials - and then i will look at other stuff time permitting.
    I think the priority is taking the load of this current DB before it shits itself.

    nah have we chuff
    i got the board and sections done, permissions need a bit of testing yet, then a couple of mods i would like to add (like mod and gallery mod) before roll out.
    Be nice to say for next weekend - but i may decide to polish the van roof or hoover my garage floor instead.

    Well i reckon we are nearly there.
    just some more light testing and one mod to add (or try too - the "like" mod) and i reckon it will be switched over for you all by default.

    Update 2
    This "like" mod aint really pushing my buttons.
    sadly it is in no way as good as the current one or one used my other boards (vBulletin, and others)

    So i am looking at a Karma type system now. consider it a work in progress, and being a vanilla board will evolve as and when.
    One upside i know will please many of you - tapatalk will be available on the new board with immediate effect.

    Will the forum still look the same? As its layout and ease of use for mobiles is one of the reasons i frequent here.
