The new site looks great. One concern I have is that all the info on the Delphi forum will be lost when it is closed. There are a lot of good tech articles and information contained in that forum. Can it be left open for reading only?

The plan is to try to archive the more technical post, but this may take a while. The Delphi board will remain "Read Only" until the info is archived.

I think most the technical stuff is in the minds of the members and not on some harddrive somewhere.

This will certainly be a massive undertaking. Will likely take a team of people a long time to sort through everything and summarize the best posts into an article/post that will touch as many bases as possible.

In the mean time I'm sure we'll have to answer a lot of the same questions all over again until we get this new format populated with a lot of info.

If you find something that needs to be retained and it's appropriate for the FAQ, let me know and I'll incorporate it into the new/expanded FAQ!

Doesn't matter...you will still get the same idiots posting the n00b questions without searching. Same shit, different board. :banghead:
There was this really cool web searching site I used to use, google or something, but I lost the URL, do you know what it is?

This board has the redeeming feature of stickys...which are really cool, but you still have to get the idiots to read them before they post. :rolleyes:

Just asking if it will be kept open for searches until it can be pulled over. I'm sure you guys are taking some complaints over the new format, but don't interpret this as one. If you need help, sure.

There was some talk awhile back about creating an automated way to move everything over here. Maybe Bob will chime in, but there were some significant difficulties getting stuff from Delphi.
