New Forums!
« on: July 02, 2008, 11:43:10 PM »
Hi everyone,

Welcome to Battleground's new forums!

I think that everyone will find these new digs much better than the old ones. It has a much cleaner look, more versatility, and better customization options.

I expect that there will be some growing pains with the switch, but I'm sure that you will all find these forums more to your liking.

Please expect there to be some changes as we tinker and make adjustments over the next few days or weeks. I encourage everyone to stop using the old boards as they will be taken down very soon, but in the meantime I will leave the link active so that you can reference any old posts here:

http://battleground.yuku.com/

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks everyone, and enjoy!

D.

Very nice D.  Yuku is...below average!

I love SMF and am glad you chose to go with it.  Something for you to think about, we can talk about it privately, is that SMF should have an importer for Yuku so you can transfer all the threads and content over to the new forum.  I know SMF has importers for phpBB and invisionfree and vB.  It is worth a look.

That would be awesome Jonathan! And thanks again for all your info and advice on the forums! SMF is great.

i do enjoy the new forums, mostly due to the fact that i can see them.  YUKU for some reasone (because it sucks) like to load forever and not show the boards.... but my post count been working on that count for over 4 years now lol
Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near.  In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life, what is it but a dream?

Not that post counts count for anything, per se, but "yay!"  Importing the data will be nice.
