Hi everyone,

The migration has started!

Thanks to all of you for contributing to these boards for... wow... 15 years! The community and the content we have all produced together has been great!

It's also produced about 9,642,406 posts to move to the new software. It turns out it will take a little while to move the data, transform it into the new data structure, relate all the boards, posts, attachments and everything else to each other, set the permissions, and spin everything back up.

We are also making a few other changes - like merging our message board accounts with the grading and Collectors Society accounts, implementing single sign on between those sites, splitting the boards into three boards not to mention launching the new boards, on a new theme, newly mobile friendly.

Whew!

There is alot to coordinate across these efforts. While we expect the outcome to be really great and really worth it, we do want to let everyone know that we appreciate your patience while we make these improvements.

It will take some time, and no doubt over the first week there will be many questions, a few bugs, and a lot of getting used to the new environment.

CGC Temp Board

I want to especially thank the NGC and PMG customers, since they will be making the move in two steps - first moving to a shared board (like we have now) but under the CGC logo, and then eventually moving to their own boards. That's a little disconcerting, and we want to thank you for your patience.

NGC/NCS/PMG Temp Board

So thanks again, everyone, and please enjoy this elevator music while we wait... figuratively... I mean we'll WAIT literally, but the music is figurative...

Two other quick notes:

1. PMs will also be shut off (just a reminder)

2. While we make the backup happen, the boards will be slow (about one hour)

The PMs have all been crunched through the data process, and the posts started getting processed in the middle of the night.

The data gnomes and working away!

I'm excited to get to the new boards.

The data gnomes are almost through the posts, but we still need to process attachments.

Things are moving along!

We are actually in the converted instance, working on configurations. So we've got that going for us!

Things are moving along still. Configuration is pretty much complete. We're testing single sign on. Once those things look good, we'll be able to go live with changes to grading sites and Collectors Society, and start opening things up.

TWO THINGS:

1. There will be a new board at the top of the list designed for Q&A about the boards, how things work, and/or to report any problems.

2. The boards will be doing some final steps to the conversion in the background over the course of several days. That step takes all the old post formatting and converts it to the new board's formatting standards.

This means that older posts may look weird - tags showing up around bold items instead of just showing them as bold, etc.. The conversion will attempt to update the newest stuff first, so things will start looking normal on the top pages of the forums first, but the further back into history you go the more likely you will be to see odd formatting.

Ironing out an issue or two with single sign on.

Performance on the new boards looks good so far, but of course the real test will be under load from all of you fine people contributing to the collective wisdom of the universe about comic books.
