Post by: vector on July 16, 2008, 11:06:00 pm
We will be taking the present forum offline tomorrow night at 8:30 pm pacific daylight time for about one hour. We will be doing a data transfer from this forum to our new home forum.vectorlinux.com (http://forum.vectorlinux.com).
When we resume please change your bookmarks/links to the forum to http://forum.vectorlinux.com we hope you will find this change beneficial in term's of speed and security. I again would like to thank Masta and the crew from http://supergamer.org for their support during this transition stage for giving us a home away from home............... :D
any questions please reply here!
 cheers,
Vec

Great news!
Now for my dumb questions.
1) What date is tomorrow? You are a night owl and in a different timezone, so your post "yesterday" shows up as my "today".
2) Is there going to be some sort of redirect for users that are away from the board and will miss this announcement?
3) Are we to expect inter forum link hell? Meaning links people post, to other messages in the forum. Will the urls update to the current server? Or will they still point to vectorlinux.com/forum2/xxxxx and supergamer.org/vl/xxxxx?

I think a re-direct is a must...
http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum should be re-directed to http://forum.vectorlinux.com
