Sorry folks,

Before anyone asks, the experts tell us they can't import the old board to this one as it generates way, way too many php errors. So every now and then I'll cut and past some material, but that's as far as that goes.

Good news, polls work and no error messages when you post!

I can help copy-n-paste as well. I can start with the Miniatures section, or another that you think is more important.

That's a very kind offer, and gladly accepted :)

I've opened the old forums up again to allow that.

As some may have noticed, the Miniatures sub-forum from the old board are slowly making their way here. IMO, I believe it's one of the best PA miniature/modeling references on the net. I don't want it to die with the old forum. Thus the Conversion Project.

Since the transfer is copy-n-paste, I have taken a few liberties. They are as follows.

First, all pictures that do not meet the new forum's size restrictions are converted to a URL link. If someone REALLY wants to see an embedded pic, then please resize it and update the thread.

Second, all comments are attributed to the original owner, so everyone can follow the conversation without confusion.

Third, I condensed some of the threads by removing the "oh cool!" and similar responses. Anything pertinent to the thread was left in. Any good, but off-topic, ideas, etc are moved to a new thread with an appropriate title for easier reference.

Forth, the conversion process is happening slowly during my lunches at work. Please be patient.

Many thanks!
Dave

If there are other goodies from the old forum you want saved, please notify Craig & volunteer!

Dave,

Please let me know if you need the size restrictions changed. That may save a heap of work on everybody's part.

On top of that, I have no intention to shut down the old forums, and want to keep them as an archive for all of our users.

The old Miniatures section from the old forum is now moved over to this forum. If anyone feels that anything important was left out, let me know -- or feel free to add it.

I've a question - when I try to register to the old forum ('cause I'd like access to some of that info too) it says that my e-mail address has been banned. Now, I realize that I've been beligerent on some forums in the past (the Paizo forums really got to me and I had to finally back off), I'm pretty sure I've never been on the old MA forums like ever, so it seems I have a mental mutation for causing offense retroactively (that totally needs to be written up). Is it possible for me to register, or is registration to the old forums put to a halt?

It probably isn't aimed at you specifically ;) There have been a number of email services banned due to the high proportion of spammers using them, so I have used "*@hotmail" etc. to ban some of these.

Please PM me on this forum with full details of the profile you'd like on the old forums and I'll see what I can do.
