I have versions of both but I call the AK files my home. I belong to other boards but the boys on the AK files I can identify with most.

That also their is something seriously wrong with me. :mrgreen:

Today's update posted.

TL:DR - All Board Posts, User Accounts and Feedback were untouched and have been migrated. Final work being done to finish configuration and get the boards move-in ready.

07/20/2020: Making Progress. This wasn't planned, so things are taking a bit longer than anticipated, but edging closer.
AK Files:
  • Feedback System: IMPORTED! Looks like everything imported over finally.
FAL Files:
  • Feedback System: Finishing import now. Should be off the to-do list tonight <-- FINISHED!! Verifying Import :)
Both boards still need some general config work done and a run through to verify Users / Contributors / Vendors have proper permissions across the board. Both boards the permissions system got lost in translation somewhere so I'm having to reset everything and manually update things. Tedious, but has to be done.

Contributor Status / Upgrades: Both boards migrated properly.

Thank you Jen and all others involved in getting the forum back up. Being without it reminded me how much I enjoy the site on a daily basis.

I opened up the page today for the first time in about three or four days and was disappointed still to find this, managery. However I’m glad to read Jens announcement and see that everything seems to be progressing well so, we no longer have to put up with thiiii-iiiis place. It’s almost like having to go have a drink that you don’t really want at the bowling alley with the loudmouth spastic illiterate brother-in-law that you don’t really like in the first place but you have to put up with him because somebody likes him. LOL

Love and Goodwill,

Quick update posted. AK Files is expected to be back online sometime this weekend. I will likely open the forum to contributors / vendors first so not everyone slams it at the same time. (no, you can't upgrade now to get early access.. that's not how this works!)

FAL Files I need to pull the server backups in order to recover attachments. I am also going to try to restore the OLD board (think 1998-2008ish era) from the old server as a read-only archive. The old board restoration won't affect us getting back online. The only hold up there is restoring from backups as I may have to start the import all over.

Sounds like the carpets all clean and the paint is almost dry. Some of you assholes need to wipe your feet before you come in the new house. 👍🏻
