forum migration

So, I'm not saying it's a bad thing if it takes a few day to migrate but...

It appears that everything from the old forum has just been abandoned. Do we have to start discussions over? Some indication would be appreciated.

So there is no chance to get ongoing threads of the old forum back? Or to put the old forum in read only for a few days to recover them?

+1 for me. Would be a shame to lose all that useful information from the old forum.

Hi sorry,

The options on phpBB forums at sourceforge are limited!
many functions are disabled by them we can't modify, nor import into this forum :(

For this behaving we did startup this forum in 3 days after sourceforge.net info about closing.
If we did start a new forum at the end of July the lost of files should be much and much bigger.

If we could import all without problems into this new forum we should have done this!

Hopefully this explanes a bit more in depth what is going on.

Regards,

There is a reason why such forums are free to create, and its understandable

To fully answer this question and make sure everyones on the same page. Old nas4free forum migration was not really possible, we did have to start from scratch. The db backups of the old forum are not compatible with any other implementation of phpBB due to sourceforge. The way they integrated their version of phpBB into the sourceforge system is different and custom. That is why the new forum does not have any old topics. Zoon and I had to build this new forum from the ground up and took us many hours and hard work. The old forums are now officially closed and any user trying to access it is pointed to this new forum. This decision had to be made because sourceforge will no longer be offering phpBB forums in the months to come, fully ending on September 1st, 2012.

Thank you for your understanding, the NAS4Free team appreciates all your support!

I bit more time between the message about the transfer and the old forum shutdown would have been nice, since many users didn't have the time to react and copy their ongoing support threads.

But I like the new forum much more than the old one and it's much faster! :ugeek:

Thanks for all the time you are putting in this project! :D
