We are moving to a new forum system, so...
« on: April 28, 2017, 02:29:20 PM »
Hello everyone!

Has I said, we are moving to a new forum, which should happen in June 1st 2017. Don't worry, every post will be moved to the new forum, and everyone will be moved too... well, almost everyone. To make the new forum spam free, we are forced to make a cleanup in the accounts to filter out the spammers.

If you know someone which has a Porting Community account which hasn't login since March 26th 2017, and that is interested in keeping him/her account, tell him/her to login into the Porting Community before June 1st so we can move it to the new forum. That's the only thing needed. If he/she posted anything in the forum they don't need to login; accounts which have posts in the Porting Community are certainly not spams, since the spam posts were all removed, so these accounts will be kept even if their users don't login until the moving.

Users who don't login before that date and never made a post in forum will lost their accounts, and will need to recreate them to interact properly with the forum. I'm about to send a mail to every Porting Community member which fits in the description above. However, if one of these users mail addresses end ups being false, their accounts are going to be removed as well unless they fix it before March 25th 2017, when I'm gonna repeat the mail for those who haven't logged in yet, has a last warning.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation and our apologies for the inconvenience.

Warm regards,

The Porting Kit Team

As some may already have noticed, the upgrade still didn't happen :P

Unfortunately I had some problems during the new forum creation which is making it take much longer than I expected to get finished. However, what I said is still valid. Accounts that haven't logged in since March 26th 2017 will be removed when the new forum becomes active to avoid spam-created users; the only exception are accounts that have already made posts in the forum, which makes clear that they are not spam-created users.

The upgrade should come soon.
