Everyone welcome the new members from GeekSoup.net!

 

As of last night I purchased the website GeekSoup.net as it is in a similar niche to us. Since I have imported all the members and threads/posts. Let me know if you see anything out of place.

 

For any users that came from GeekSoup.net please make sure to update you avatar pictures as they didn't come over during the conversion. Might want to update your profile in general. If you were previously a moderator on GeekSoup.net please get in touch with me if you are still interested in being involved.

 

Let me know if you have any questions/concerns.

 

Everyone should be able to login with existing username and passwords sweat.gif

Sure, it really wasn't too difficult, just time consuming.

 

First off setup a dev environment if you don't already have one. Then you can mess with importing the database via the converters supplied by you forum software. This can take a few hours until you get the desired results.

 

Then it's easy just backup your production database first then import. After that the imported boards should be hidden to regular members. You then have to spend the time going through each thread and then decide where to move it to within your board.

 

After it's all done send out an email letting everyone know what happened.
