Jester,

There have been a number of complications. Perhaps the most important is migrating all 'valid' user accounts to the new system where once this was performed, we lost the user registration date and everyone seems like they registered on this site on the 1st of Jan. 1970!

The fix for this was found and now we stumbled across a new issue where user passwords need to be reset, however this seems like some bug in the migration process. We are waiting for this issue to be resolved as its very important.

Unfortunately, the user and forum migration isn't a easy and smooth process. We need to move the forums to another two platforms before we can import the data to the new CMS/Forum system.

As you can appreciate, there are a number of parameters that can go wrong when performing such large and complex migrations.

Hopefully we'll have the important issues dealt with and we will be able to switch to the new site and slowly continue working on the site until we bring it to the level we want.

Oh, and did we mention that we won't have any private messages on the new forums? Private messaging wont be available until a week after the migration :)

So, if anyone has problems, just PM us :)

Cheers,
Chris Partsenidis.
