Hey everybody- after nine years with this forum it's time to change to an updated format. There are various technical issues with this forum at this point, which will all be fixed with the new forum - there are more features, and it will be overall a much more reliable forum on the back end for me to manage. In about a month the URL to this forum will redirect to the new forum, but in the meantime, you can go over there and sign up now for a new account. Here is the temporary URL:

http://s15.zetaboards.com/Japanese_History/index/

Sign up over there and let me know in this thread and you'll be put into a group with more permissions than the regular rabble, but you have to post here, otherwise I might not see it. And if you let me know here, I'll also update your post count to add in your post count from this forum, so you won't be starting from zero - I'll pick a date next month to move those figures over. In about a month the URL will redirect automatically to the new forum. If you've already let me know you're signed up, you don't have to post here again.

Again, the forum will be here for at least a month, so you can continue conversations here, but I recommend you just move them over there. This forum will be locked and moved to a new URL for archiving purposes, so it will still be accessible, you just won't be able to post or create new accounts.

I'm still working on the formatting, colors, smilies, avatars, etc. on the new forum, so it isn't technically "ready" design wise, but otherwise it's ready to go now.

Done!

What did I win?

Any plans to shift the URL of the new board to forums.samurai-archives.com or anything of the sort? Or should I just bookmark the address it's at now?

In about a month the URL will redirect automatically to the new forum.

And remember, once you peeps all sign up there, let me know so I can bump you up and get you some extra perks. If your group name is Hyakusho, I didn't get you.

My plan is to have the link to this forum direct to the new forum on April 4th, conveniently the ninth anniversary of this forum. So I'll probably bump this topic every few days. That should give me enough time to get the new forum organized and set up, and give everyone here enough time to sign up. Once you sign up there, make sure to post here.

I am probably going to point forums.samurai-archives.com to the new forum in the next day or two, I figure I might as well just get it done. That means that forums.samurai-archives.com will probably be offline for a few hours or more when I initiate the transition. You'll be able to access this forum here, this URL will not go offline:

http://www.samurai-archives.com/forums/

That will be the permanent URL for the old forum. I'll keep it open to posting for a few more days after I transition, but then I'll lock the database down so that no new members can join, and no one will be able to post anymore. It will essentially just exist as an archive.

So, if you haven't signed up at the new forum yet, please do so.

forums.samurai-archives.com is going offline now, when it's back up, it should be pointing to the new forum.
