    Got some feedback from vanilla, should definitely be able to get a database copy and the archive will include it. If we go to opensource some features like reactions will be lost without developer intervention, but essentially it's almost a drag and drop replace. They said shouldn't take more than 5-10 min to configure it.

    Theme selection and our current themes would be lost probably without developer intervention.

    Migration should be possible. Got this info from a mod but he said he'd have a support staffer look and give me a better response.

    Part of the reason I'm using Vanilla is in the hopes of vanilla->vanilla easy migration. Assuming we can get the backed up data in the first place...

    So does that mean we're stuck with Vanilla? Aren't there ways to convert databases for vb?

    If people died when they moved to Vanilla I'm not sure how they'll handle a migration to Discourse...

    But it is a nice, modern platform.

    Please tell me they are hosting it themselves...instead of paying a cloud hosting fee again.

    Every time we get new forum software its a big change. As long as we get some decent dark hued themes, it should be all good.

    Gonna unsticky this since SRK is no longer closing down.

    maybe this isnt about the cost of maintaining the forums.
    mayybe its because the forums are...hm. how do i put this? controversial. liberal. loose. decadent.
    in the forums...we curse. we post up things of adult nature. sexual talk. drug talk. just..not "family friendly" nsfw talk...

    and mr.wizard who's always hated the gd forums possibly has plans to expand his evo/esports business and doesnt want the forums to be a financial liability to his esports/sponsored enterprises.

    ever thought of that?
    more i think about it, the less i think its about money. and more about cutting the liability(these forums) loose.
    i mean just look at my avatar for god's sake lol lol
    hard to ask pepsi to sponsor evo/srk with a nigga rocking a barbie in a s&m dungeon haha.
    corporations HATE controversy or anything....yunno.
    especially in this super sjw politically correct age we now live in.
    saccharin > sugar these days boi.
    just a thought

    By the way how many times has SRK moved onto a new platform? I'm only aware of switching from some old ass forum system onto Vanilla Forums (and AFAIK it didn't happen all that long ago)

    I was wondering what all this Vanilla talk was about because I thought we used Vbulletin. Then I checked last night for the first time in years. When and why did we start using Vanilla? I've heard of other types of forums but not Vanilla. I would've thought the second best choice would be phpbb or some other well-known community forum software.

    What's up with discourse? Is there some issue with it? I honestly don't know anything about forum software. :confused:

    I was out all day and just heard the SRK forums will remain.

    I don't care what we use so long as it's something.
