Voted for "I would love it more than anything!"

It seems like a lot of pros/really great things.

We "lose":
> 6000 accounts (that would need to be re-created)

I hope no one will steal my name. Smile

Quoting is better, because you have the source code of each post.

Also notice that many things can be transfered. And for no reason would this forum be deleted, so there's infinite time to grab all the necessary informations. Cookies, badges and TG could be transfered without any issues.

The main things that are lost are question topics, and people's post counts (poor Greg).

I think that all the old hands will move. We will lose some of the more casual folks but them's the breaks.

I think that as long as the really important stuff--stickies, short question threads, guides--get backed up then its all good and that shouldn't be a problem if we distribute the work load among a group reliable responsible people then that shouldn't be a problem at all.

Ehhh post count was so 2014. Its all about that bass fresh start. New ladder, and new forum to start fresh.

maybe we should take the most popular questions asked, throw them in a wiki so people will have a decent way of searching until we get enough post and topics up. We could always organize a Sticky on the new forum explaining it too so we don't have to many people off the forums.

@Marco

Oh yeah, silly me, and I saved at least 500 topics (copy-paste in txt) doing it that way. Spinning Mr. Green

ok I voted Very Happy
the fact that this forum wont go down soon after launch of new forum is the best, bcz that means very low loss of important posts/threads and discussions.

@Rexxar and @wotan: lol.. xD

Even though I'm personally no big fan of extras, I can see how this can improve mxl.com.
I don't think I'll have a use for mobile app support, but if it was requested so much, others will use it.
If a shinier forum will attract more people or just be better for the regulars, I don't know but...

You're dreaming pretty big, Marco.
If you can follow through with that, this is a great opportunity. By all means, do it.

Can't say I wouldn't like it. Not sure what kind of forum you plan on making (WBB3?), but, I know you can make it work. And for posts, well, lazy fucks like me will just need to actually start spamming and we'll make up for it. Very Happy

Why not export and import the members and posts? Maybe we have to write an importer script, but there are a lot of good programers around here?
