Dammit! I posted a thread on the old site and...

...I don't see it here!!! WTF is up with that?

Was that your first reaction when you were looking for something? Well, due to some serious technical issues, we weren't able to transfer the old posts into the new system. But don't worry, the old posts are still around and are here to stay.

Just CLICK HERE to get to the old posts.

Also, if you posted something on the old site and want to post it on the new site, please feel free to do so by copying and pasting it here.

I assume there was some reason why you decided to not import the old posts into the updated site?

The differences between the two databases, the amount of time (which is very short for us volunteers) -- or alternatively the cost of paying someone to do it -- as well as other differences that made it difficult and problematic to migrate the old posts into the new system.

It was not technically feasible for us. Because the data structures, the data formatting and the different philosophy of design between UBBThreads and vBulletin we simply did not have the resources to do it. It would have been both prohibitively expensive and time consuming. Added to that we weren't able to find anyone who had successfully done it.
