Hi all,

[This post is a repeat of the post in Announcements & News.]

Cyan is going to move mystonline.com to a new hosting service. For the most part, everything should be the same and there is nothing you have to do differently. However, as part of the move the forums will be updated to phpbb 3!!!! The forum will look mostly the same but with many added improvements. And the dreaded emailer error should be eradicated!
The heavy lifting of this project is being done by Hannah and smapty. With help from Mac_Fife, Tor'i, RAWA and greydragon (oh, and myself)

MystOnline Forum will be down on Monday June 24th!
The plan is to take down this forum on Monday June 24th, around 10am PDT and do the transition to the new place. It may take a couple days of down time before the new one is "live". So, the forums will be unavailable from Monday June 24th to (probably) Wednesday June 26th. The web site should be available during the forum downtime.
During the downtime, a snapshot of this forum will be taken so all postings will be on the new one when it becomes live.

We will leave the Explorers usergroup intact along with the need to be a member before you can post. Theoretically, we should get less spam-bots with the updated forum software but we will wait until sometime after this migration venture is done before making a decision on that.


Thanks!
Chogon

Nice! I hope it all goes well! The dreaded Emailer Errors have been quite a nuisance. XD

Yup, but with spelling like that, I wouldn't hope for too much improvement in the results you get returned ;)

Yay! Please make sure to enable the Atom feeds in phpBB 3, so we can continue to read the forum in our feedreaders.

Yay, farew... farebad I guess, PHP errors! Also the forum news feed feature that Christian Walther mentioned sounds quite useful.
Maybe this would also be the time to fix the Manhole banner. I don't mind that it exists, but it keeps generating a horizontal scrollbar and/or makes the site too small, which has already been discussed in another thread.

Never thought Id see the day. :o Cool though! phpBB3 is a big improvement from phpBB2.

Good luck with the conversion. I never got to do it myself but have heard it's not very painful.

It may have been on this one because it had to be reskinned from the default (couldn't just copy it over from phpBB2) and converted from a mishmash of customizations by many hands that caused the database to be in multiple formats.

Neat!
Out of curiosity, are you planning to add a mobile layout?

And what brought on this flurry of activity?

Whatever, it will be nice to see it updated.

I don't believe so.

There's a bit of "cleaning up" the database to do once the snapshot is taken. JW Platt has mentioned the mixed formats but there's also some purging of about 600,000 spam accounts to do. That's why Cyan are being cautious and allowing themselves a couple days for the migration rather than a couple of hours ;).
