Title: Preparing to Move
Post by: Hoers on May 27, 2019, 08:04:34 PM
Hi everyone,

For all of you who have been patiently awaiting some sort of news about the CBG's future, this will be a long-overdue announcement. After a long period of discussing and trying out a few things (interlaced with banter and truly epic discussions on the Discord server), we've decided that we are in fact going to build a new forum to let us continue to operate with more-or-less the same format, rather than try and transition to something such as a sub-Reddit. Here's what this means:

  • We'll be locking down the current forums shortly into read-only mode, to avoid missing new work that might get posted, and to avoid accidentally destroying the data.
  • The plan is to transfer as much of the existing content as possible. In a best-case scenario this means that we'll get a mostly-seamless transfer of the content to an updated forum that you'll be able to log into like normal and continue posting. Worst-case scenario, we end up having to lock down the old forum as an archive for reference, but you'll have to restart/rebuild any threads for settings etc.
  • Nomadic and I are going to generate some backups and see what things look like after working through the data. Once we've determined which of the above scenarios has come to pass, I'll open up the new site and help people start signing up/logging in (I'll make sure anyone who requests it has their account reserved, too).

In the meantime, you can find us on Discord (https://discord.gg/3Y5RQ24) (use that link to be invited; you'll need sparkletwist or I to add you to the Members group there to see channels other than #general-chat). If you have any questions, ping us there or email me at tvgamblin @ gmail . com.

Hoers

Godspeed, old CBG.

The discord has been fantastic - looking forward to the new forum.
