At the very end of the process when we are ready to go live I expect to close the forums for 24 hours for the final update and transition

All this talk of synchronizing and modules and importing and exporting and interfaces and databases...makes me glad I never chose "computer programmer" when somebody asked "what do you want to be when you grow up?"...I'd have been the poster boy for a twelve-step program before graduating junior high!

UPDATE:

The synchronization is done and all threads and posts have been fully updated.


The test forum is now current to about 24-36 hours ago. This was the best Sync we have seen in the past year!

We needed a API KEY from one of our software developers to turn ON a huge pile of new features that we configured last night. That key just arrived moments ago.

So over the next couple hours looks for LOADS of new goodies to start appearing in the test forum as it moves closer and closer to its final look and feel.


As of right now, I think we are ON TRACK to invite our Paid Premium Members to come in and begin playing with the new site NEXT WEEK!

UPDATE:


The new forum is pretty solid now.
Most all of the features are in place and WORKING at long last.


Will be inviting our Premium Members into the new forum THIS WEEK.


Right now we are Re-Syncing the two forums.
Setting the final Color Scheme for the user interface.
Setting up E-Mail notifications and Alerts
Validating all membership levels and permissions.





If all goes well, my current plan is to ROLLOVER the whole forum on or about Monday August 26th!

To all of our Premium Members!

It is with no small degree of pleasure that I announce the NEW SNOWEST FORUMS are ready for you to come and TEST!!

Just follow this link, Log In with the SAME user account you are using right now.

https://www.snowest.com/forum/showthread.php?p=4222474


ONE REMINDER
Everything you Create, Post or Edit in the Test Forums WILL BE LOST when the forum goes LIVE at the end of the month and we do the Final Sync of the databases.

COMMENTS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

If you run into a bug, feel free to start a new thread in the test forum and either myself or one of the Mods will do our best to jump on it and get it addressed as quickly as possible.

Its been a MUCH longer road getting to this point that I ever imagined.
Thank you so much for your patience!

A forum upgrade taking three years. Cool. Haha.
