Vbulletin to Invision Conversion


Recommended Posts

There are 2 steps in order to take us from a forum, to a network integrated forum. The first step is to convert us over to Invision Board. This process may take half a day. During this time, YC will be shut down.

The next process is integrating current members with the network. I am unsure how long this process will take, however it most likely will take another day's work, in which YC will have to remain shut down.

So this is a heads up that there will be at least two steps in order to get us to where we want to head. I am looking to convert us over to Invision Board as soon as I am done testing the conversion process. If all goes smooth, I will begin conversion late tonight, or tomorrow.

Two whole days without YC?! Do you have any idea what this will do to the world; to the ecosystem; to the human race as we know it?

*dramatic chipmunk*

This will be a test of our patience. It will be a test of our souls. If we come out of the other end alive we shall be a more together community. We will learn to love what we have and enjoy it more thoroughly.

It shall be a dark and dim two days. I wonder where the food will come from. Where will our source of sustenance be? How shall I ever survive in a world without YC? . . .

There is a slight problem with the IPB conversion process. Member 1's ID will now equal 15000. Thread 1's ID will equal 15000 and so on.

As someone who is a little on the ocd side himself, this bothers me. But does this bother anyone else?

So, member #'s will turn from 1196 to ... 16196 ... or something?

It'll make us look like we have fifteen-thousand more members than we actually do... :w00t:

We're back! That was painful, but the worse part is over. Don't worry, we are going to have a redesign of this forum, I just didn't have time to get it designed yet. Hopefully Mike/Jen can help me configure some backend forum duties. Anyway, the first part of the network overhaul is complete!

We are going to start the network migration tomorrow. Fortunately, there will be no downtime during this period, however the traditional sign up/sign in method will be handled by our network, Record Hall. Think of Young Composers a subsidiary (a very valuable one!) of the network. Please note that although we are migrating, this does not mean the network will be fully functional at this time. We still need to sort out any problems.

:lol: still with the market-speak i see.

Could we hope for language packs? Obviously the main yc skin would have to be in englandian, and in adition to this there could be a skin within which we could change languages. (this blue one right now, f. ex) Just wondering. ;) Doesen't seem like too much of a pain to install.

Checkmark all your messages, then scroll towards the bottom. Click on the drop down menu, and choose "Mark Read", then click "go". You may have to scroll through a few pages, but it shouldn't take you more than a few minutes to mark your messages as read.
