    This is a totally different forum. So while you're username may still exist on the stratics forums, it doesn't exist here until you create it.

    Keep in mind these are temporary forums. We intend to recover the old forums and at that point you will be able to resume posting with your old account as usual.

    For the time being, you'll need to re-register for these boards.

    Hi Gallahan,

    It may be too early to ask this, but just to ask for drill.

    In the future, is it possible that Stratics may make the move from UBB.Threads to vBulletin permanently? Possibly convert the old UBB data to vB after the data is recovered?

    Personally, I believe switching to vB would be a great move. :)

    That's something we're very much considering. In that case we might keep the shell of these forums but import the old user database and post database (creating a forum that looks like this but has all the posts and accounts the old one had).

    Thoughts on this? How do you guys feel about these forums vs. UBB?

    There are some formatting issues that I'd like to see changed, but other than that, whichever works best.

    I'd like to be able to retain threaded mode, but have the thread list appear BELOW the opened post.

    There are also several extra windows that clutter up the main screen (Tags being one, Posting rules being another).

    Also, User CP isn't the most intuitive label to link to the Control Panel.

    That would be great. Looking forward to the completion of the recovery. And then see how things progress from there. :)

    Oh! vB all the way! :D I'm also on the YaBB Dev Team and a bit of a forum geek... vB would be a great solution here. +1 vote. ;)
