Re:Old forums? 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
Well, what can be done about it? I'm a software developer and so I know how this stuff works.

Is this a new version of the same software or is this a completely different forum package? I presume this information is maintained in a database; so are there translators out there to take the data from one DB to another?

If anyone out there has the answers, let me know and we can start devising a plan. Otherwise, I think we just move forward with what we have here.

Re:Old forums? 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
It was a tough decision but the old system had so many security holes we just couldn't continue to tolerate the hackers and spam kiddies. It was causing significant performance issues as well. We litterally were having 10 - 12 automated signups per day creating dummy accounts. Even when we turned off new registrations they were still coming in.

In the article comments alone we had over 25,000 comments that were auto submitted containing links to porn and other non mentionable sites.

The problem (the simple explanation) was that to convert all the posts meant we would have to convert all of the users over too. But we estimated that there were near 4,000 bogus users. The cleansing of the data and restablishing relationships would have been a pain.

Because of the security issues we left the old system all together and wen to a new CMS and Forum solution. It's more robust and will handle our user load better too. Unfortunately there wasn't a pre-existing conversion solution for the Forum at all, while there was one for the CMS portion we didn't like the issues with all of the bogus users.

With the site getting visited and used by REAL users adding content everyday there was no real good way to do a conversion either. It would have meant shutting the site down for many many days if not weeks trying to sort it all out.

I agree there is a TON of good information over there and we are working to bring the Survivor stories over and other content.

The forums on the other hand are much much harder if not impossible. It was a tough decision, but one we felt we needed to make for the benefit of the community overall and its future.

That's why we've left the old site online for reference. but we're asking that you post replies or restart topics here as that site will go away in the not too distant future.

With the hundreds of thousands of visitors we get each month it won't take long for this place to become as content rich as the old site. We appreciate all of our members and their dedication to the site and we hope that you will choose to contribute that much more in our rebuilding process.

God Bless,

Re:Old forums? 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
Hey Sunbaked - that is an excellent explanation! Any chance you can repost that on the &quot;About PS&quot; site temporarily? Or the homepage? SO many questions about it - definitely a high interest item!

Hugs,

Ceejay
