The new forum is live, all of the posts have been converted from the old format into the new one. Everything went fairly smooth with only a couple of minor details.
Posts that had images inserted inline didn't come over with the conversion. You should be able to go back and edit your old post and re-add the pictures if you want. Pictures that were linked to the post are working OK. Links to files should be OK also.
Passwords didn't automatically convert for security reasons, so your password will have to be reset. But you can still use your old one if you choose. When you get the login error, just click to ask for a new password. You'll get an email with a link to reset it, follow the link and when asked, use your old password. If you run into any trouble you can always email me and I'll reset it for you.
In the process of changing the forum to our new format I had to set each person that's registered to the correct member status. As I did this, I found there were some members that had a different roster email than the one they registered with on the forum, so I changed it to match the roster. My logic being that the roster email is probably the most current, we have some fairly old entries in the database. I can switch it back if needed, just let me know.
If you encounter any problems at all don't hesitate to email me.
