Okay, so the board is up again, although it's pretty possible I will have to disable it again tonight. I am busy with a new forum install and I want to import all the data, but since it is a different platform, I have to convert it. This forum has 12 million records, so you understand that that takes time and after that it isn't even sure the board is doing what it should.

I did a convert last night and all the posts are transfered, plus users, but it didn't get the pm's right. Besides that, I have to make some setting changes etc. Nevertheless you should be able to log in there and see if you like using it. It is still a mess, and some posts have huge fonts, but try not to look at that, like I said, it still needs work.

The url is: <!-- m -->http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/smf2.0<!-- m -->

Just browse a little through it or post, but remember that whatever you post there, will most certainly be deleted again with the conversion tonight, so don't use it to post important stuff, leave that here.

I have to go to work, so I'll leave you to it. Let me know your opinion on the forum and if you think you can get used to it.

If the pm's are not showing here, they are not converted. I don't know why, it only had problems with the pm's. It should show new ones though.

For your old ones, you can view them at the old board when I put it back up.

I'm curious - this doesn't look or feel like the old site at all. The name isn't even on here...at least I can't find it. If someone comes into this site they won't know what it's necessarily about. Is that the intention or will you be putting the name to clearly identify what this web address it about? The old site had a more professional look to it but I realize it will take some getting used to.
 
Thank you for all of your hard work. Blessings :)

Hi! I was just wondering if this new forum will have the "new posts" button like that last one. That really helped me keep up with all the latest. Or, if there is a button on here which directs to me something like that, please let me know.

The forum is impressive!

Where can i find the "view new threads" option like last board? i'm used to that tab  ;D

and with the scroll down options, mainly in profile section, i  hover over something, so i can see options to click on, but before i can go  down list, it disappears just as i start go down, and can't click anything  :( for example Profile Info > summary, and other options there

the closest thing I can find to that is "view unread", threads that you either have not looked at all or have had a new post since you last looked at it will be there.  ;)

it's at the top of the page, on your gray bar that has your avatar/name/posts,etc.
its hard to describe where it's at, but if you can't find it, let me know and ill just make a screenshot.

Thankyou Souza for all the work you put into our site. It is a mammoth sized job which you do so well and  so thoroughly.  I am sure we will feel at home the more we use and familiarize ourselves with it.  :-*

It will only display the original post on a thread and the first reply. If you click a page (say in a 7 page thread, click page 3) it will only show the top 2 posts on that page. This started last night (12hrs ago) for me.

Souza I'm dying!
Are you entertained?
