Last I heard from Christopher, it's all but ready to be switched over. Right now they're having issues getting everything to import over. Once they get that part figured out, we should be good to go!


I agree with you 100% on posting pictures. It's a complete chit show!

Can only link pics that are already on the web.
I can't upload anything because of size limitations.

No problem uploading thru tapatalk
Call me stubborn (my wife does), but I don't want to give an app all of the permissions tappatalk asks for just to use a forum that I'm paying to use.
Besides, loading pictures used to work WTF changed?
Why not fix it?
Better yet, Where's this upgrade?
Christopher? Can you enlighten us?

Just give tapatalk the permissions. Trump already knows more about you than you do. Submit to the man.

Data Synchronization has been unobtainable thus far.
We have been working on this for MONTHS now and every time we think we nailed it, and do a full [Export - Conversion - Import] of the current database into the new forum database, we find a TON of missing content at the other end.







Our goal for the last 4 months has been to achieve a near real-time data sync, where anything you create here in the old forum appears in the new forum within a few minutes so we could watch the data propigation and be able to ENSURE that we have lost nothing at all in the port.


So far that has completely alluded us.


As it is, with the season coming to an end, we might just have to bite the friggen bullet and admit defeat. Close the forums down for a week or so and just do a hard manual port.




JUST exporting the RAW data takes a full 96 hours.
We thought we had reduced that time substantially during the winter, but it looks like that was part of the problem with losing content during the port.

Thanks for the update Christopher.
I just wanted to vent a little frustration.
Sorry about that.

Then we lose Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning.
Probably the busiest days of the week....

If the only option I am left with is to SHUT DOWN the current forums to do the final port by hand, it will be closed more than just three days I fear.
