  • Notes About The Forum Change

    Hey, everyone! Welcome to the new forum!

    Please be aware of the following:
    • In case there is something you feel you need to recover from the old forums, they are still available (albeit in their broken state that doesn't allow for new posts) at http://www.badkittygames.net/forum/
    • There will be design changes coming at the beginning of the next month to make this forum look more like "ours". For now, please tolerate the default layout and colour scheme.
    • For backers/testers creating new accounts- it will take some time to get to everyone, so please be patient as it's going to take awhile to switch everyone to have backer/tester permissions.
    Thank you all very much and please pay attention for new content popping up over the next few days!

    Will the old forums stay up indefinitely? Or do we need to save stuff we want to keep?

      Not indefinitely, but we don't have a timeline for it yet- they'll probably be up for at least a couple months, as we'll probably refer to the format and style of the old Iron Waifu updates this May. . You should save things that you want to keep, but don't feel that you have to do it soon.

        Thank you for your hard work NoMoshing, one question though, why the switch to this server?

          We had intended to switch to vBulletin since last year, when there were all those fraudulent accounts voting in Iron Waifu. Omni recommended switching to vBulletin because it is much more friendly to modding and similar adjustments than PHPBB.

          Losing all the data on the old forum was an accident of circumstance. Turns out, vBulletin 4 could have imported it all, but vBulletin 5 is completely uncompatible, and since vB4 is currently unsupported there was a lot of trouble installing it (which is part of why the changeover took five days). Eventually I decided that in for to save on time and sanity points, just to dynamite the old forum and start over.
