I’m posting here today on our new forums to provide a “what happened” in our forum migration process. The goal was to migrate the old forum data and hook up a modified, more visually clean version in a time frame of about two days. Discourse (our forum host) succeeded in the data migration well ahead of schedule, which left the only remaining task to be the second thing I just mentioned. Our contracted vendor in charge of this failed to deliver on their deadlines which led up to the delays that, regrettably, you’ve all had to experience.
As a result, we terminated our contract with them.
Because of this we had to deploy the new forum in-house, so thanks for bearing with us while we work on formatting, badges, and other features in the new forum. We’re still partnered with Discourse, so many of the out-of-the-box features won’t go away. We’ve seen a lot of positive feedback on the new forum so far, and I hope you’ll all join us in rebuilding a welcoming, helpful War Dragons community here together!
