[QUOTE="StevenW, post: 6533033]Yeah, hoping we can turns things around.

Xenforo has now been tested,so will be going ahead with the big import very shortly

Wordpress is coming along nicely. We've imported games and now we're importing images and authors etc. Still some time to go but pretty confident we'll be launching this year.[/QUOTE]

Wishing you the best of luck man... hopefully it is a smooth transition

It's a combination of grown up life that makes that happen. My work is rotating shift work, nights, afternoons, days. We are short staffed, so I have to constantly cover vacant shifts, and to top it off, I decided to go back to college for my Bachelors.

Being a grown up sucks

We don't need to sit here and listen to your perfectly sound logic and explanations, okay?! Gosh. But yeah, grown up life sucks sometimes. :p

Oh yeah....

Well in my short time as an international spy, I was caught and put in a turkish prison. They force fed me until I became a huge fatass and couldn't escape. I now live my life of solitude well, with the fam, working and eating. Oh and sometimes playing games.

Is the idea to do the big import to XenoForo before the new year? Been a month since StevenW said it would happen "very shortly" so I'm just wondering.

I've learned to take "very shortly" around here with a grain of salt.

Sad part is I remember being told the same thing when I was CM. Soon we will have a solution. Soon we will have new software...

I truly believe people are trying to make it work, but like you, I have heard it all before.

It looks like its still on track to be "very soon". Steven sent out an update email to staff, but you guys will have to wait for word from him or Chris on the specific dates! :D

I personally can't wait to move from VB. I have no idea why it has so many hardcoded things that (in all honesty) probably shouldn't be hardcoded at all!

VB isn't a nightmare to work with at all. It might be more in tune with how it was managed here before. I've had nothing but really good experience managing Vb.

PSU ad: "Still stuck with Wordpress? Trapped in the Wordpress world? Goodbye, Wordpress..."

Funny that we have yet to actually move to Wordpress/XenoForo. :snicker

The work is going well. Targeting completion this month. Home page will be first over to WordPress and then forums to Xenforo within a week or two.
