So I'm sure you've all read the previous announcement thread about Oatmeal. Here's stage 2.
Soon™, we'll be moving the website over there too, as well as upgrading from our current forum version, 3.1.4, to the latest version of the forum software, 3.4.5. It has a lot of neat additions that will make browsing threads a lot more fun and efficient.

However, as it's such a massive jump, there are a few minor changes that are going to happen during the upgrade process that you all should know about before the upgrade.

  • We will no longer have both an avatar and a profile picture. Everyone will need to make sure the picture they like the most is set to their avatar.
  • The forums will work slightly differently, and there will be an adjustment period. I'll make sure we have a thread up in feedback for everyone to post their findings.
  • All of our banners will need to be adjusted to have a soft left edge in addition to the soft right edge. If you've made any banners and want them to continue to be used, I'm talking to you guys.
  • A few of our settings will also need to be adjusted for some time after the upgrade, please bear with us as we get everything working nicely.

Overall I feel this will be a change for the best, and I'm really looking forward to improving our community with this change. Go ahead and post any questions or concerns you guys might have here, and I'll do my best to answer them.

So the forums are just updating and moving to a new server? Doesn't seem too serious. Should we keep an eye out for any particularly unusual features?

I don't think my banners are in the rotation anymore, so I don't think I have to worry about that bit at least.

You want to start a riot?

Either way, yay?

Sounds like you got everything buttoned down and a refresh like this keeps things interesting. I doubt you need any help with the migration, but I'm always available to assist with php/IPboard/html5 etc. Just holler!

So does this mean we're finally getting Farmville?

That's how we got you the whole time.

What was previously Main IS Farmville.

Be thankful I watered your plants almost daily.

I'm looking forward to it! (I also apologize for not being on lately, I've been super busy.)
Just curious...how long is Soon™ in Valve Time (and human time)? Rough estimate? :P

Valve time: Seeing as it's been a couple of weeks since the last news post, and special crates show up as week before a major update, and I doubt we'll get more than three phases for this transition (two is pushing it Valve-wise)...
Normal time: I'd expect it to be done within the month. :v

Preemptive feedback, I hope the embed plugin's patched up so it doesn't try to embed flash on mobile styles and is optional for the desktop view.
Other than that, I look forward to it.~

Edit / Spoilers: I actually have no idea. From what little I've heard about the changes, I'd expect it to be that.

Eh, just moving with the times I guess.

So long as it doesn't affect how things are run here too much, it's okay.
In which lessons were taught, praises were given, and critiques were doled out.
Not that it matters anyway.
