Thanks for providing feedback on the migration. As we all know, there have been some bumps in the road, but we're committed to improving things. Despite the hiccups, I'm happy to report that the migration has succeeded in it's overall goal, which is to improve the site's performance and reliability. The new forums load faster than before and we've eliminated the pesky down times and crashes of our old setup.
Here are some of the improvements we'll be implementing over the next two weeks or so:
Restore the recent/hot post header at the top of the forum.
Allow users to delete their own posts
Support for [img] bbcodes
Fix the ability to re-show categories that are manually hidden on the front page
2/19/2012: Quadrupled the character limit.
2/20/2012: Fix Strategy Zone
2/21/2012: Allow expand/collapse of major sections of the forum front page with the - icon in the upper right of each section.
2/25/2012: Fix redirects from shoryuken.com/forums to forums.shoryuken.com.
2/26/2012: A dark theme, with a selector to choose between light and dark themes. We will fix the white flash when loading the dark theme pages
2/27/2012: Bigger Avatar size, with support for animated GIFs. We will fix the blurry scaling of the avatars.
Thanks for your patience as we continue to iron out the speedbumps.
UPDATE: I'll use this space to keep you guys notified of everything we're working on and check them off as they're completed.
