3. Infrastructure to provide support for members who want to meet IRL (yeah, it does happen) including helping organizers get venues for events, arrange for sponsors to provide food and drinks, etc...


2. Possibly related, but not really 'new system' specific. Will there be a minimum post count (say, 25?) to start a new thread as a tool to cut down on new thread spam clutter? Of course, established members would have to frequent the 'noob' or 'small questions' threads much more. The spaminators do a fine job now, no complaints.

3. Sounds interesting. Curious to see how this works out for the Houston SFers

Awesome, looking forward to seeing the improvements! Have a thread dedicated to comments/suggestions, I'm sure I and others will have lots to say.

Interesting company, never heard of it before: Article check out denimblog.com (which merged with honestforum) or headfi for other forums running Huddler. Hope they don't crank up the flashiness / advertising too much. Always wondered how much a site like this makes..

This sounds great! Looking forward to the change.

I also feel bad about this. Change is scary, but I can't wait!

Will the content (both messages and user accounts) from the old system be migrated?

I don't really have time to answer all questions (the answers will become pretty apparent once we are completely migrated) but the answer is yes to these answers. The entire database will be migrated.

I'm really happy to hear this. I've seen other forums move to new software and literally throw away all their old content. To me that's the equivalent of a magazine who destroys all copies of their back issues, rendering the past impossible to recover or read. The non-permanent nature of content where the owner can make it all disappear overnight is a major weakness of the Internet.

sounds fantastic

Any chance of an update search system? SF's is pretty archaic, things like sorting results by the number of replies and searching within sub-fora would be helpful features, especially for newbies like me.

Could the updated search system perhaps do away with the four-character minimum?

APC, anyone? KMW? WvG?

Sounds awesome regardless. Looking forward to it, although I doubt the upgrades will help to keep me from spending too much time (and money) here.

That's what Google's for, innit (well, and stealing all your secrets)
