    This forum will be accessible from the micechat.com. You won't be able to post here, but you will still be able to search and view. We are going to implement a special version of Google Search that links to all sites MC has ever created, so with one search you can access everything.

    We can't continue with vBulletin cloud. Our site is just too big. Moving to vBulletin connect and a better host is an option, but vBulletin breaks things every time they create a new version. This is not just my opinion. It's the opinion of Monorail Man, Dustysage, and countless other admins who have used vBulletin over the years. It makes no sense to keep using forum software that is getting worse instead of better.
    I understand. I guess as long as we can preserve the history of MiceChat, it'll be ok. If Dusty is good with it, I'm good with it!

        Are you saying there will no longer be any blogging functionality? Old blogs would remain on the old site, but there would be no new blogs?

        Why not import the blogs into blogging software and allow blogging to continue?

          Personally, I'd go for any option except the third. I'd hate to lose everything that has gone on before. A lot of history that some folks have built up. Even if we can't continue some current threads, at least if they are read only, the content won't be lost. I also expect you'd lose a lot of active people who wouldn't like the idea of starting over again from the beginning.

            Maybe I'm reading it wrong but I don't think any of the options involve losing access to old forum content. Option three would just not have the old posts tied to the user accounts on the new board.

                This is what was posted: "3. We would move to XenForo with a clean database. It would be MiceChat 2.0. Nothing would be imported. Users would have to re-register. Post counts would reset to zero, but I can edit them manually. Join dates would reset, but they could be edited by command line changes to the database. There would be two MiceChat forums, one old and one new. The old forum (which is currently this one) would be searchable, but locked."

                To me, that means that the old forum would simply be there for reading, but completely unaccessable. Also, with two separate forums, old and new, I think the old stuff would simply fade away from people's minds. Also, even more important, I don't think enough people will reregister for the new forums. Maybe I'm wrong. Admittedly, I am a technophobe, so all this intimidates me.
