    WA: when you upgrade to VB3...

    WA, when you upgrade to VB3, please please please migrate all of the data from the existing forums! I have heard about what happened a while ago when things were started from scratch or something... I'd hate to lose my posts and all the ones here.

    Any reassurance about this?

    Oh absolutely. The reason why the old forum data wasn't migrated was due to special circumstances- it was all in HTML, and some were corrupt. With a mysql database, it's a different game, especially since the software is still the same, just a newer version.

    that's good to know. Another forum I used to be a member of changed bb versions and started from scratch - despite having no 'special circumstances' like you have described. I was a bit fed up at being reset to zero and never really went back again

    Good to hear that things won't change here

    (although, you could swap my post count with whammy's )
