    been up for 30 hours so excuse the kinda graphical mess. Just wanted to get everything operational again, and the conversion I had been planning for awhile was finally done... just with much less warning than I had desired.

    please report any problems here - the only thing I ask is that for the next few days we avoid the "I don't like this" stuff versus "This doesn't work" stuff. This is very flexible and we can accommodate the don't like stuff pretty easily, all in due time of course.

    This is rad. Nice job, Nip.

    Noticed that my account password didn't carry over; if anybody knows people who are having trouble logging in, a password reset should help.

    "Updated" is to use that term loosely.

    It's really fast, I don't know if it's because of load or because it's a fresh process w/ memory etc. but it's screaming.

    feels zippy/zippier.

    things I noticed after 30 seconds:
    -some/many avatars didn't port over?
    -top of forum listing page says "XenForo" (?)
    -color scheme (I'm sure this is already on your list)

    Most of the passwords should've come over

    Quoting is broken.

    My user profile timezone was set to UTC-4, not UTC-5? Weird, but not critical.

    Can't edit posts awaiting mod approval (at least not that I can figure out).

    Direct access to sub-subforums missing from top-level page. (games sub-forum inside P&G, etc.)

    I find that the password requires you to allow it to use the cookie "stay logged in" in order to actually log you in, at least on mobile.

    I think the message awaiting approval thing is that it imported the forums before the groups, and we have like 4534897780957802348 groups instead of the normal 5 or so. Looking into it.

    Are we able to change the posts per page number back to 50 or whatever?

    It seems that the "View New Content" button/feature is missing (or at least not in an easily identifiable place).

    Also, when I first logged in, the Alerts button had a flag with the number 4. When I clicked it, it said I have/had no alerts.

    Finally, the main page has XenForo as its Uber-header. Seems like that is an error.

    Hmm, reply only works to Nip for me, not to other users. But it doesn't have to be a recent post.

    Do you see "New Posts" above?
    1. It might not have content yet.
    2. You can see the guys who were posting from mobile until that cached out
    3. mobile app is most definitely completely not working

    and in the conversion, everything in every forum after around 12:05 seems to have been lost (about 1 .5 hours ago).

    Where do you go to do that? I went to my profile and I saw no option to upload a file.

    The "Go to Last Unread" button at the top of a page doesn't work.
    Ditto for the little bullet point just to the left of a thread title (the button takes you to post #1 of the thread, not the last unread one).
    Or maybe both of the buttons work, but it doesn't realize I have read these posts.
    PS: All of my comments so far are based on using Safari on a Mac Mini.
    Looking now at my iPphone with the SOSH app, seems like the last "Unread" topic was "Talon's Squared Circle" from 6 hours ago.

    Don't go to your profile page, click on your avatar and when the little box pops up you'll see an edit function in the image. Click on that and it should allow you to load up an av.

    Alerts now working.
    I now see the New Posts button (and it works).
    The bullet to the left of threads now does what it is supposed to as well.
    Strong work -- that's what I call responsive customer service. 100 Internet points to Gryffindor!

    OK. I was wrong about the bullet. Still not working.
    There also seems to be no way to Edit an old post.

    Move the mouse over the avatar box, there should be an "edit" option in the lower right hand corner.

    Or pm me the avatar and I'll put it in for you.

    Ooh that's hot. Oh yeah.

    Yeah I don't get that edit option. Maybe only mods can do it? I'll try to find the file and send it, thanks. Not the most urgent issue but I was curious.

    Nice, Sumner. Thanks.

    SJH, I don't have it here. It must be on my home computer. Maybe this is the right time to change it anyway. I'll PM you at some point.
